RACK HANDLE DESCRIPTION:

Introducing a new concept in handling and securing 19" rack mounted equipment: the Piton Rack Handle. This high quality assembly provides handles and captive fasteners for your rack-mount products.

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

The Piton Rack Handle has clean styling and excellent ergonomics. It is manufactured with high grade materials and is EIA-310, RoHS, and NEBS compliant. It is well-suited for a variety of markets including Datacom, Telecom, Storage, Pro Audio, Broadcast, and Test Equipment.

RACK HANDLE FEATURES:

  • High quality rack handle for rack-mount electronic equipment
  • High strength ABS/PC polymer
  • Captive #10-32 screws have EIA-310 spacing to work with all equipment racks
  • Clean, modern styling with generous finger clearance
  • NEBS compliant flammability rating and oxygen index
  • Mounts on equipment ears, saving valuable front panel space
  • No special panel prep, press-fitting or swaging required
  • Single part no. kit simplifies documentation, procurement and kitting
  • Patent pending
  • Designed and manufactured in the USA
BENEFITS:
  • The Piton Rack Handle gives your product a rugged, customized look, differentiating it from competitors using cheap off-the-shelf hardware.
  • The high-strength, practical design makes for an ergonomic handle capable of moving heavy, awkward equipment through production, shipping and installation.
  • This solution gives your customers stainless steel fasteners, captive to your 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.
  • The Piton Rack Handle 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.
  • The product is supplied as a kit with 2 handles, 4 captive screws and 4 mounting screws: the single part number kit reduces the cost of documentation, procurement, kitting and assembly.
  • Can 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.
  • Easily replaceable, reusable and recyclable.
  • With good design-for-manufacturability, the Piton Rack Handle is available with quantity price breaks at 50, 100, and 500 kits.

DESIGN TIPS:

  • Order one kit for each rack-mounted enclosure. A kit contains 2 handles, 4 handle-mounting screws and 4 captive screws.
  • See PDF data sheets for mounting hole pattern for handles. Each handle requires two countersunk thru holes.
  • If your front panel is more than .25" thick, counterbore the handle mounting holes as shown on the data sheets.
  • There are multiple captive screw lengths available. This is to accommodate your front panel thickness and allow proper mounting with any rack - regardless whether the rack has recessed captive nuts or tapped rails. See data sheets for part numbers.
  • When attaching handles, first fasten with plastite screws, then thread #10 captive screws thru handles.
  • 3D STEP files available on request.
  • See our product development services for complete chassis design.
