Now that you’ve picked out the room that will become your home theater, have you thought about where you’re going to store all of that sweet A/V gear?
The new racks from Fat Cat will keep your equipment purring nicely with their high quality steel frames, easy gliding pull and twist options, contoured posts with printed “U” spaces and rear cable management punch outs.
Racks can provide top panels with no fans, two fans or four fans for some serious ventilation—you might need it if you fill one up, because the Fat Cat racks can handle up to 450 pounds.
Bottom panels can be stand alones, have casters or be secured onto a slide-out system, and side panels, stylish doors and grounds are also available. Initial models are available in 20U, 28U, 36U and 44U heights, with depths of 18 or 24 inches. Accessories even include drawers to hold your DVDs and CDs.
Later in the year Fat Cat expects to offer thinner models and wall-mount options.
