Custom rack

I would like to rack mount my gear, and my best option to do so is by creating a recess in a false wall. Its plenty deep, I can get power to it and cables from it, and heat out of it.
My question is how do I accomplish the rack itself? Can I just mount vertical rails at the front at the proper width, and be done? If so, where can I get the rails? I would need 20RU of rail. Also, they would be anchored into 2x4s so they will be secure.

Thanks

I think you would want to dress up the hole in the wall and bare 2x4 with some finish grade trim molding before attaching the rails. Measurement of rail spacing will be critical. Here is one source of rails, there are many.

Of course the cavity would be finished out w sheetrock and trim. I was just stating that the rack rail would be securely anchored.

Thanks!

I used one of these in HT1.0, and it installed very nicely in a space you described. They are not the cheapest in the world, but definitely work really well.

I used middle Atlantic rack rails and a plywood frame. Then bought all the custom component shelves and faceplates.

My rack rails.
