ICC offers horizontal finger duct panels designed with 3-inch wide channels to manage the capacity of cables coming into the server room or wiring closet. This finger duct panel is 2 rack mount space (2 RMS). The panels fit on racks and cabinets with 19-inch mounting widths.
The channel has 24 pass-through holes, on the top and bottom, to help guide cables on the front of the rack and cabinet. The channel features flexible fingers that allow cables to be inserted and removed easily. If more space is required between the fingers, they can be removed using a hand-held duct finger cutting tool. Each panel can accommodate up to 96 patch cords horizontally.
The base of the finger duct is made of steel that has a black powder coat finish to protect against wear and corrosion. Holes are also positioned on the back side of the panel to allow the cable to be routed from the front to the back or vice versa. The finger duct panel is UL 94V-0 rated for safety and RoHS compliant to protect the environment. A channel cover is included. The cover snaps on and off which makes changing cables easy. It also helps conceal cables, so the installation looks clean and professional.
One horizontal cable management panel is recommended for every 48 ports. Cable management panels help reduce stress on cables connecting to patch panels, servers and, networking equipment. Most importantly, cable managers increase the longevity of connections.
To complement these horizontal panels, ICC offers a wide selection of vertical finger duct panels; single-sided and double-sided.
