Rack Studs Limited Receives Platinum Rating in Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2015 Innovators Awards Program

Las Vegas, NV, 21st Sept 2015 – Racks Studs Limited, a New Zealand-based manufacturer of rack mounting hardware announced today that its Rackstuds were recognized among the best in the industry by the judges of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance 2015 Innovators Awards program. The judging panel consisted of cabling and communications system specifiers, designers, integrators and managers with vast professional experience.

Rack Studs Limited was recognized as a Platinum honoree.

“On behalf of the Cabling Installation & Maintenance Innovator Awards, I would like to congratulate Rack Studs Limited on their Platinum–level honoree status,” said Cabling Installation & Maintenance Group Publisher Alan Bergstein. “This competitive, unbiased program celebrates the most innovative projects in the structured cabling industry. We are pleased to celebrate Rack Studs Limited‘s Platinum status and recognize their contribution to the structured cabling industry.”

Rackstuds are the revolutionary replacement for cage nuts which are used to mount IT, pro A/V, security, and telecommunications equipment in 19” racks.

Rackstuds make it much easier to mount your gear because they go in from the front and provide you with a place to support your equipment while you spin on the lock nut. This makes inserting and removing Rackstuds much quicker and assists with mounting even heavy equipment as it no longer needs to be balanced in one hand!

"Rackstuds are much simpler, faster, safer and very strong," commented a company rep at the BICSI Fall 2015 Conference & Exhibition (Sep. 21-24), where the award was presented.
