The Kendall Howard 1U Cable Lacing Shelf is no ordinary shelf. It is designed to offer a supportive surface for cables when securing, routing, and organizing connection points to and from switches, patch panels, and other rackmount equipment. For versatile mounting, the 1U Cable Lacing Shelf can be placed above, below, behind, or in front of your network devices. As a result, valuable rack space is made available for other rack configuration needs. Managing cables on this lacing shelf is easy with the help of the Hook and Loop Cable Ties. Simply bundle cables to the 1U Cable Lacing Shelf with the Hook and Loop Cable Ties to add support, organization, and protection of your network cabling.
