About the Sanus CFR2136

Ralph Graves
If you have a large, multi-component audio/video system, you know storage can be a problem. The brawny Sanus CFR2136 is a great solution. It can handle a whole-house system and then some. And it has enough space within the cabinet to run your cables.

If you have a large, multi-component audio/video system, you know storage can be a problem. The brawny Sanus CFR2136 is a great solution. It can handle a whole-house system and then some. And it has enough space within the cabinet to run your cables.

Sturdy casters make it easy to move, and each shelf is backstopped so your components sit securely during repositioning. Quick-release removable side and back panels give you access to your components.

Rack-mount or shelve your gear

The CFR2136 can accommodate up to 36 rack-mounted components that are 1-3/4" high. Or you can use the included shelving to store up to eighteen larger components. You also get rack face plates, so you can fill in empty gaps between rack-mounted of shelved components for a cleaner look.

Easy cable connections

Space behind the shelves lets you run connecting cables between your components. And a three-rack panel that can be attached to either the top or the bottom of the rack's rear gives you options for running cables out of the cabinet.

Industrial-strength construction

The beefy CFR2115 can support up to 500 lbs. of electronic gear. Welded heavy-gauge steel construction makes it durable and strong, and a locking tempered glass door gives you added security. Drop-down legs provide stable support, and they're adjustable, so you can ensure your gear stays level.

Ventilation to keep components cool

Integrated vents along the edges and air holes in the back panel keep air circulating. The cabinet also features cooling shelves on both the top and bottom of the rack for improved airflow. In addition, every shelf also has ventilation slots to help keep the temperature down. .

It comes pre-assembled with blanking panels and vented shelves, which include back stops to ensure AV equipment does not move during use.

Steel Construction: The Sanus Component series CFR2136 features heavy-gauge welded steel construction that is strong and durable.

Lockable Tempered-Glass Door: The Component series CFR2136 features a lockable tempered-glass front door that can be placed on the left or right side of rack for added flexibility during installation. The lockable tempered-glass door provides security, while maintaining component visibility.

Quick-Release Removable Panels: Quick-release back and side panels allow complete and total access to components and wiring. The CFR2136's quick-release removable side and back panels allow for easy access to your components during and after installation.

Convection Cooling System:  Cooling vents on the top and bottom of the rack ensure all equipment stays at the ideal temperature. The Sanus CFR2136 employs a convection cooling system that allows warm air to escape through the top as cooler air is drawn in through the bottom of the rack, keeping your AV gear at the proper temperature. The rack also has two 3U cut-out openings on both top and bottom of the rack as well as a removable 3U panel that can be located above or below the rear rack door for added venting or active cooling flexibility.

Adjustable Feet: The Sanus CFR2136 includes four adjustable feet and 4 swivel casters to help with placement. These swivel casters and adjustable feet allow mobility and stable positioning,

Customer Q&A

5 questions already asked

Is it 70.5inches high with the casters? Can I remove the wheels to save some height?
[ ANDREW  Dec 12, 2022 ]

The height is 70.5" with casters. If the casters and leveling feet, it is approximately 66" tall.
[ ZACHARY  Dec 12, 2022 ]  Staff
What is the width of this rack? I'm thinking of putting it in a closet but the closet is narrow so I need to figure out if it will fit.

[ DARREN E.  Sep 29, 2021 ]
The width is 21 2/16s inches and the height is 80" with the wheels on. And 78" with wheels off..hope this helps! I like mine and have received many compliments on it.
[ CHAD  Sep 28, 2021 ]
The width of the rack is 23 and 5/8 inches.
[ ADAM  Sep 28, 2021 ]
Hi - Is the difference between Sanus CASH23 and CASH22 only the number of shelves? Would the 15% discount for accessories apply if such was not bought at initial purchase but after receiving/setting up unit and learning I could use something else? Is the light fixture(s) (not the bulbs) already in the unit or an accessory? Can you comment on the integrity of my cart? I'm thinking I probably don't need both drawers? Thank you, Bill
[ WILLIAM  Sep 13, 2016 ]
2 answers
Its not just the shelf height difference as answered above it is also the CASH23 holds more weight
[ PAUL  Jan 18, 2022 ]
The only difference between the Sanus CASH22 and the CASH23 is the CASH23 allows more compartment/shelf height at 5-1/4" compared to 3-1/2". For more information regarding your other questions, I would recommend contacting an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat--they will be able to go over all of your options in greater detail. I hope that helps!
