Features

Steel Construction: The Sanus Component Series CFR1620 Skeleton Rack features welded, heavy-gauge steel construction.

Stackable Rack: The Sanus Component Series CFR1620's modular, stackable structure can be coupled into five different height combinations - 40U, 35U, 30U, 20U and 15U. 

Capacity: The Sanus CFR1620 can accommodate up to twenty rack spaces (1.75" tall) or fifteen shelf components (3.5" tall). It can support up to 600 lbs of AV gear on the floor, or up to 200 lbs when mounted on the wall.

Quick Assembly: The rack is self-aligning and requires only four bolts for quick, easy assembly in approximately 15 minutes.

Leveling Feet: The CFR1620 comes with 4 feet that are threaded so you can level the component rack. An optional CA6CK caster kit, available from the manufacturer, includes 4 casters to enable you to roll the rack from place to place.

Wall-Mounting: This versatile rack can be mounted directly to wall studs for a more permanent organization solution in any room.

Optional Swing-Out Bracket: The Sanus CFA16SM-B1 (051CFA16SM, sold separately) is an optional swing out mount for Sanus Component 1600 Series Racks. This optional swivel accessory enables access to the back of these wall-mounted modular rack systems, so you can easily get to your components rear-panel connections. It allows your Sanus Component 1600 Series Rack to swivel effortlessly with a touch of the release tab, and locks securely when returned to home position against wall. The Sanus CFA16SM-B1 opens up to 90-degrees

Required Tools: The following tools are required when wall-mounting the rack system.

  • Stud finder
  • Level
  • Awl
  • Hammer
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
  • Ratchet with 1/2" sockets (or 1/2" box wrench)
  • Drill with 7/32" bit for wood stud installations (3/8" bit for masonry)
  • Tape measure (ruler)

Customer Q&A

8 questions already asked

Q
I have castors for this. Can I put the feet on and then add the rollers, or do I have to use one or the other (either the feel or castors/rollers)? Thanks!
[ Jay  May 05, 2020 ]
3 answers
A
One or the other I don't see any way for both
[ Pete  May 05, 2020 ]
A
it's one or the other. you can get decent castors at the hardware store to keep your options open.
[ steve  May 05, 2020 ]
A
Can only use one or the other. My rack is fully loaded and over 200 lbs so used the feet as it sat on carpet; to prevent sinking into carpet used a 2x2'x0.5" sheet of MDF. Recently moved so now sits on a hard surface floor but can't find rollers to switch! Advice tape either rollers/feet inside rear of rack to prevent misplacement.
[ Randall  May 05, 2020 ]
Q
can you put a turntable on this (at the top)?
[ Hemant  Mar 07, 2020 ]

A
If you put a shelf at the top. There isn't a "top".
[ Geoffrey  Mar 07, 2020 ]
Q
Since it is all coated, is there an exposed grounding tab to ground isolate the rack?
[ Michael  Oct 20, 2019 ]
4 answers
A
There is no grounding tab but with very little effort and the appropriate hardware you could easily create one!
[ Randall  Oct 29, 2019 ]
A
Hi Michael, thank you for your question. The Sanus CFR1620 does not have a grounding tab, but you are able to ground your components to a location that you have sanded the coating from. Chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695 if you have any other questions. They will be happy to assist.
[ Jess  Oct 28, 2019 ]  Staff
A
The legs are solid steel and accessible for grounding.
[ michael  Oct 28, 2019 ]
A
no, i had to determine where i wanted to "apply" my grounding and sand that one screw hole on the surface.
[ Don  Oct 28, 2019 ]

Q
How many blanking panels are included with the rack and what is the finish (e.g., black powder coat or black brushed and anodized)?
[ Jay  Feb 18, 2016 ]
3 answers
A
There are no blank panels. Its just a 4 post open rack. Mine isn't a matte black but also isn't shiny. Kind of in between.
[ Chris  Feb 19, 2016 ]
A
Two bins and The finish is black powder coat.
[ Jose  Feb 19, 2016 ]

None were supplied and all parts are coated....

Q
How many shelves comes with the Sanus CFR1620?
[ Mark  Dec 29, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
It came with 2 shelves. One single rack space shelf and one double rack space shelf. I purchased additional shelves only to find out that many of my components were rack mount. Be sure you have enough screws and I recommend the caster set if your rack is in a closet
[ John C.  Jan 03, 2016 ]
A
This unit includes 2 shelves. Additional component shelves are available for purchase.

Q
I have a cfr1620 sands rack and I need more space. Which stackable racks will work with this?
[ Bob  May 23, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
Bob I'm not sure if your asking about shelves that you can add or if you want another rack to put on this one. Let me know and I will try and help you out.
[ HANK  May 30, 2015 ]
A
Bob -- The CFR1615 works for this purposes. Depending on how much vertical space you have, you could also stack another CFR1620 on top of your existing one. Personally, I have a 1615 stacked on top of a 1620.
[ Ioannis  May 25, 2015 ]
Q
Does this rack have square holes or round threaded holes? BTW, I'd like the square holes.
[ Terry  Mar 05, 2015 ]
7 answers
A
Terry -- Not sure which holes you're referring to. If you mean the holes in the front of the frame of the rack that you use to attach the shelves, then they are round and threaded.
[ Ioannis  Mar 09, 2015 ]
A
The trays have round threaded holes.
[ LAURANCE  Mar 08, 2015 ]
A
It has threaded holes on front and square holes on the sides. Hope this helps, Hank
[ HANK  Mar 06, 2015 ]
A
Threaded holes for the shelf fasteners front and back, with square holes on the sides.
[ Richard  Mar 06, 2015 ]
A
Uprights have round holes in front and square holes on side
[ William  Mar 06, 2015 ]
A
The shelf holes are approximately 1/2"wide by 3" long. They cover approximately half of the shelf area. Hope this helps
