  I don't know. The top and front door were missing. It was made of steel
and >>appeared<< to be the same as their full height racks but shorter.
It's still there and I doubt anyone else will want it so I may get it yet.
It's a perfect size for a 1000 and the FP unit. They filled it completely
except for a blank 2" plate at the bottom. One unusual thing that I did
notice about it was that it had some AC outlets on one SIDE near the
bottom. I don't recall ever seeing that on any other rack. It also had the
typical HP AC outlet strip in the back at the bottom.
