It looks almost identical to the partially populated frac setup I bought on here. The big difference is there are no rails on the sides (any more at least). Instead there are wood rails running horizontally at the top, bottom, and center - for two rows of modules.

Not sure that it's exactly the same, but it seems the same dimensions and design. The handle is nice to have, and the open back makes for easy access.

Was thinking of purchasing a couple Paia FR7's and putting them in the above equipment rack.
Paia FR 7 : http://www.paia.com/proddetail.asp?prod=FR-7

Wasn't sure if they would fit was wondering if any one had already done this.
Should fit being all standard 19" rack.

Any one else want to chime in?

Yes, any 19" equipment rack should work should work for your FR-7.

I use an open rack like this: 19" Open frame rack

This type of rack is for studio use as there is no casing or handle.

Another option is the 8" deep plastic racks from china you can get on ebay these days for under $100 shipped. I use them with blacet racks but they'd fit paia racks just as easily. Info and pic in this thread...

I picked up an 8" version and was impressed with quality.
There was even a zippered net pouch for cables, etc.

Still pretty wide with the covers on. Wish someone would make a 6" version and reduce the cover size. But if need protection for your modules, this would fill the bill. Under $100, free shipping. Showed up UPS second day air, but I would not expect this.....but thanks.
