COMBIMET 19" is our newest range of rack mount enclosures. It offers you the best choice of ventilation options. Specify Combimet with any combination of vented/unvented top and vented/unvented base as standard. Or choose the open top version – also available as standard. View the COMBIMET range and watch the two videos

METTEC 19" offers easy maintenance because you can remove the front panel – even when the case is mounted in a rack. Watch the video on the METTEC page to see how easily you can remove the rear panel and slide out the PCB.

UNIMET 19" also features a removable front panel (again, even when the case is already rack mounted) but – unlike METTEC – the PCB is pillar mounted directly on the base. The top and sides are a single piece U-section. Watch the video on the UNIMET page to see an exploded view.

VERSAMET 19" has no visible assembly screws on the front. Access is by removing first the rear panel then the base – revealing the hidden fixing screws that hold the front panel in place. Watch the video on the VERSAMET page to see an exploded view.
