Have empty space in your rack you don't know what to do with? Luckily, there is an easy way to have a neat rack without sacrificing air ventilation! We carry a range of vented panels that you can use to cover up the messy empty spaces in your rack, while still providing airflow for your gear.
Many people intentionally leave empty spaces in their rack to allow their equipment to cool and avoid overheating. But these slots can be an eyesore. Fortunately, covering them up is easy with panels. However, regular blank panels don't allow air to circulate and can end up causing your equipment to overheat. The solution is vented panels. These have various types of holes and perforations on them to allow for air ventilation.
When selecting a vented panel, the most important thing to consider is how many rack spaces you want to cover. Our selection includes vented panels from half a rack size up to 6 rack sizes. When looking for a particular size, you can use our convenient sidebar navigation to the left which allows you to limit your choice of panels down to a certain size.
What type of panel do you need? We offer vented panels with bigger holes, those with extremely fine perforations, and everything in between. If you noticed that your equipment is a bit hot, a vented panel with small holes will be perfect for you. This way the holes will be barely noticeable, which will keep your rack neat, but the air inside will still be cooler. On the other hand, if you have a real problem with overheating, buy a vented panel with larger holes. Your rack will still look decent and tidy, and your equipment will be cool.
Want to have a really neat and stylish rack? Sweetwater carries vented panels in an array of colors, so you can select one that will match the color of your workstation. Black, gray, blue, brown… We have them all! If you're looking for the utmost quality, grab one of our powder coated panels. If you're always on the move and don't want your panels to get scratched, powdered panels are extremely scratch-resistant, so you can make sure your rack will look good for a long time.
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to open your rack spaces? If you want your rack to be clean and maintained, but don't want to have to keep taking off your panels and putting them back on, get a hinged panel. Sweetwater offers hinged panels in every size, and you can attach them so they open either from the left or from the right of your rack. If you want durability and strength, get one of our flanged panels which are easy to install and will last you a lifetime!
Whichever vented panel you choose, you know you're making the right choice when buying at Sweetwater. We know that having a neat rack is important, and that's why we offer quality vented panels at a range of prices.
