NZ Company revolutionises IT mounting system

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Date: 07/01/2014

NZ Company revolutionises IT mounting system.

Auckland based Rack Studs Ltd releases an innovative mounting solution for IT, Pro A/V, Security and Telecommunications sectors after 13yrs in the making.

Auckland, NZ – Rack Studs Limited, an Auckland based manufacturing company has revolutionised the way that network equipment gets mounted in technology racks by releasing Rackstuds™; a replacement for the common metal cage nut that has been the incumbent (and only) mounting choice for many years. Rackstuds™ are a universal replacement for cage nuts used to mount equipment in 19” racks with square punched vertical rails.

Born out of frustration with cage nuts, Rackstuds™ solve the problem of mounting heavy equipment allowing your gear to be supported whilst fastening the locking nut.

“13yrs ago I had so much trouble trying to hold up a 15kg computer to align the bolts with the cage nuts that I had to stack telephone books underneath it” says the Inventor, Peter Stothers; a Birkenhead based inventor and entrepreneur.

The design mandate was simple. Design something that goes in from the front of the rack, comes out from the front and can support my gear while tightening the mounting nuts. On October the 1st, they went on sale in New Zealand and Australia and are available online through many IT hardware resellers and over-the-counter via electrical wholesalers.

Feedback on NZ and Australian forums has been very good with one user saying "These are so brilliant I wouldn't be surprised if in time ‘rackstuds’ replaced "No 8 wire" in our local vernacular".

Rack Studs Limited is now in negotiations with several overseas distributors with a view to making the product available in the USA, Canada, EU and UK during Q1/2014.

You can read more about Rackstuds™ on their website http://rackstuds.com or by following them on Twitter (@rackstuds) or Google+ (http://plus.google.com/+rackstuds).
