Charles Fiber Rack Solutions (CFRS) provide flexible, multi-functional panels for patch, splice and splitter requirements within virtually any application. The efficient design of the splice area and bulkhead allows for maximum density while using just 1RU, 2RU or 4RU of valuable rack space. 

CFRS feature aluminum construction with a grey powder coated finish. Swing-out shelf models allows technicians easy access to splice/splitter trays. A hinged tray design facilitates tray access without disturbing existing splices. The rear of the rack panel is open with cable management railing to neatly organize fiber cable in rackmount enclosures. A 4RU front and rear access model is also available with the rear panel providing access to six swing-out 4"x9" splice trays. ALL models are 19 EIA, with adaptable brackets for mounting in either 19 or 23 racks.

CFRS Panels are ideally suited for outside plant, central office, cell sites, CATV, MDU, MTSO or other environments where the customer requires fiber bandwidth for optical distribution/cross-connect.
