* Cabinet Height given here in mm is the over all outside dimension of the cabinet and does not include the height of adjustable feet. Standard adjustable feet will add 20 - 40mm to the over all height. Feet are supplied in a plastic bag inside the cabinet. Height in “U” represents actual usable height inside.


Transmission (Tx) Cabinets are standard 600x600 footprint cabinets with 19-inch racks built to house standard telecommunications equipment. Most of these cabinets can be fitted with 21-inch racks, if required, to suit the european (ETSI) standard for telecommunications equipment.

McWade Tx Cabinets are built for indoor use.

The modular design of our cabinets allows us to provide a wide range of options for doors to provide basic security and air cooling.

McWade Cabinets that are 600mm wide with a deeper footprint (front to back) are generally used as Server Cabinets inside data centers and allow for electronic equipment with larger dimensions such as rack mounted servers.

Standard/Common sizes of Transmission Cabinets

All Tx- and Server Cabinets are built with welded metal frames and are shipped fully assembled. The weight of the cabinet will depend on the options selected.

The height of Tx Cabinets and Server Racks are given in “U-height”, representing the standard “usable height” in units of 44.45mm - part of the 19-inch rack standard. This relates directly to the U-height of equipment to be mounted into the cabinet.

Surface Finish: Powder coated in light grey or dark grey.

Our doors are hinged and removable. Side doors can be solid, perforated or wire mesh.

Metal front doors are lockable or magnetically closed.

Adjustable 19-inch rails in mild steel or stainless steel, for mounting telecommunications- or server equipment.

All cabinets feature adjustable feet for leveling the cabinet.

We can supply front doors in glass or steel. For high traffic areas we suggest the “Airflow” front doors that are attractive and allow a lot of air into the cabinet.
