Installing network cabinets is not rocket science and can be accomplished by anyone with the right tools.
Before mounting your network cabinets, ensure you have the right fasteners, as they will determine the stability of your cabinet.
Drywall anchors, synonymous with fasteners, are frequently included in-wall mounting kits.
These are typically created with large threads that fasten into various sections of your drywall to ensure a stronghold.
If you don’t have fasteners but want to mount the rack on drywall, ensure you know how much weight you can mount.
Some drywall anchors hold better than others, hence the need to evaluate if your will suit your needs.
Step 1: Have the Wall Ready
If the wall you intend to use is not as strong as recommended, you can prepare it by installing plywood or any other into the section. This allows the wall to support the weight of the network cabinet better.
Step 2: Mark and Drill
Marking helps you know the exact place to drill so the drilled holes are not too close or far apart.
Step 3: Place the Mounting Bolts
It is best to use flat washers to enhance holding, especially if the holes drilled are bigger than required. This prevents the four bolts from passing through.
Step 4: Place the Network Cabinet on the Bolts
The network cabinet should sit well on the bolts without wavering.
Step 5: Install the Equipment You Want on the Network Cabinet
Once your cabinet is ready, you can place the devices you want in it, but considering the maximum weight, your network cabinet can handle it.
Remember that you can always hire a professional to do the heavy work.
