Penn-Elcom R8500-24 Flat Pack Rack 24 Space (24RU)
What is the heaviest single piece of 19" rack mount audio equipment the Penn-Elcom 24U Flat Pack Rack Cabinet - R8500-24 can hold?
The supplier does not specify the single item weight limit on this rack. But, It is steel and has heavy pre-threaded rails--front and rear. When I have an extra heavy amplifier with a long depth, I usually place it in the bottom and use rear supports to keep it from stressing the front plate and threads. A layer of heavy rubber foam can take up the first rack space below the amp and add extra support. Barring a padded double rack system, This is about as heavy as it gets.

Is there a part number for the rear support you use to hold up a very heavy piece of standard rack mounted audio equipment with a 19" width?
I was also thinking along the same lines but was unable to find the additional rear support bracket on line for the Penn-Elcom 24U Flat Pack Rack Cabinet - R8500-24. Do you know of a part number for such an item?
PE supplies standard "rack rails" for a 24 space rack. I will include suggestions below.
