Answer:
RK419WALLV can support up to a 4U 19" server that weighs up to 125lbs. We recommend contacting Dell to confirm that your server meets these specifications.

Answer:
I used it to mount a large server on the wall. Yes, mount on studs, or use dry wall anchors. I also used them to mount amplifiers, sometimes.

Answer:
I think the specifications on the startech website give you some precision on the maximum weight supported
I personally just have 40 lbs max in this model

Answer:
The rack mountable version (APC Smart-UPS C 1000VA LCD RM 2U 230V) will work. It weighs 20 Kg and our unit supports 56 Kg. It should be mounted to our bracket with four M5 or M6 cage nuts and screws.

Answer:
Depends on the desk and the orientation. 6U is a lot of equipment. Most desks would not have the strength to support this bracket full of equipment and would need very serious reinforcement. It would take almost all of any knee space on most office desks. And mounting it horizontally is a bad idea, especially for a… see more Depends on the desk and the orientation. 6U is a lot of equipment. Most desks would not have the strength to support this bracket full of equipment and would need very serious reinforcement. It would take almost all of any knee space on most office desks. And mounting it horizontally is a bad idea, especially for any heavy equipment which would thus be cantilevered with all of the weight borne by the face plate of the equipment. So, it can be done but it is mostly a bad idea. see less Depends on the desk and the orientation. 6U is a lot of equipment.

Answer:
RK219WALLV is designed to mount devices vertically to a rack or a wall. We do not recommend mounting it to a ceiling as it may not provide adequate support.

Answer:
I suppose so, though mounting the devices will be difficult. Gravity will definitely work against you. And the mounting screws will take a lot of unusual forces that could break them.

And the mounting screws will take a lot of unusual forces that could break them. If you also mounted a shelf bracket to hold up the "back" of each device on the "bottom" side, you might be ok. I find that the best way to mount this is higher on the wall so that the back of the units can be accessed with only a slight bend. I add a permanent step ladder (chained to the wall) to permit looking at the top, punching down, patching, etc. Unfortunately, we are always trying to shoehorn these things into tiny closets. see less I suppose so, though mounting the devices will be difficult.

Answer:
You might consider gluing a few pieces of hardwood, one under each corner of the bracket. Then you'll still have the length of screw thread that the manufacturer was expecting, and a modern glue will be as good a bond to your desk as if it were solid. A few extra square inches will help spread the load across the surfa… see more You might consider gluing a few pieces of hardwood, one under each corner of the bracket. Then you'll still have the length of screw thread that the manufacturer was expecting, and a modern glue will be as good a bond to your desk as if it were solid. A few extra square inches will help spread the load across the surface. Then again, if your equipment isn't that heavy, 3/4" inch screws may be plenty. Just make sure to use screws with a large diameter and the right threads for the type of wood in your desk, and pre-drill pilot holes, to maximize the surface area and 'bite' effectiveness of those threads.

If you have access to a drill press or similar, you might consider adding a few extra holes in the bracket in-between the existing ones. Using more of a shorter screw will be somewhat equivalent to fewer long ones, since this bracket is already sturdy enough to spread the load across them.

Hope this helps (late to the party, I know - but in case anyone else has a similar question...) see less

Answer:
If it is a 19 inch 1U switch it should work. BUT you need a desk thick enough to accept the screws that will hold this plus your switch without popping out the top of the desk. So you will probably need at minimum a one inch thick desk and screws that will go in at least a half an inch deep.

Answer:
It should work fine. Since this mounts to the wall and the top of the server will be facing up and the rest of the server hanging below it gravity should do the rest. My concern would be airflow through the server though. DELL PE servers are designed to sit horizontally flat and force air from front to back. Mounti… see more It should work fine. Since this mounts to the wall and the top of the server will be facing up and the rest of the server hanging below it gravity should do the rest. My concern would be airflow through the server though. DELL PE servers are designed to sit horizontally flat and force air from front to back. Mounting on this will have the fans pushing air down while the heat will want to rise up, so you may run into cooling problems mounting it this way. see less It should work fine.
