Mounting rails

Hi, I'm trying to source mounting rails. What are the standard type used for 5U MOTM modules and where can I buy them? The only ones I've found so far are the caged nut type which I don't think are the right size... or are they? My case is kinda ready and I've used wood as potential rails , drill and screw style, but I'd rather use proper rails. Cheers

I have some metal rails for 19" rack cases but for what you want Bridechamber may be the best option

Do those Bridechamber ones take 1U panels? The photo is a bit small but it looks like the hole spacing is just for 2U panels. Just curious...

Sure do I have 3 cases using them now
The big one uses 8 sets screaming goo yo

I’m using black M4 screws to hold the modules in so no need for expensive imports on the screws It's motherfucking bacon yo

20mm high may be a bit too big or are you going to hide it somehow. You only really need 12mm under the module faceplate. Any more than that and you may clash with the PCB and top pot.

The panels are expecting bigger screws. Metric size M4 is fine although the US equivalent is what most rack mounting rails use.

20mm is for central rail (double row cab) and bottom rail (10mm hidden), top rail is 10mm
