The new Pilton Rack Handle

Piton Engineering has Introduced the Rack Handle, an assembly that provides handles and captive fasteners for rack-mount products. 

The Piton Rack Handle has a robust molded design with integrated screws that secure your enclosure to any equipment rack. The handles mount outboard of the front panel space with supplied hardware—no special panel prep is required.

The package provides customers with stainless steel fasteners, captive to their product, simplifying rack mounting. No more lost or mismatched screws. Captive fasteners are integral to the handle, eliminating the cost of press-fitting or swaging separate captive fastener assemblies.

Handles mount on the outer edges of the front panel, preserving enclosure volume and front panel space; a key benefit where rack and floor space are at a premium.

It is supplied as a kit with two handles, four captive screws and four mounting screws. The single part number kit reduces the cost of documentation, procurement, kitting and assembly. It can also be used with subracks where no fixed front panel exists.

Because the handle works with standard EIA-310 front panel mounting slots, it can be added to existing designs and products. Custom colors and M5 screws available.

The Piton Rack Handle is available with quantity price breaks at 25, 50, and 100 kits.

Handles mounts on the outer edges of the front panel, preserving enclosure volume and front panel space; a key benefit where rack and floor space are at a premium.
