How big is a “U” when measuring rack size?
stylor 40 weeks ago
Rack heights are usually given in “U”s. For example, pretty much all the racks in our office are 42U. Since they are pretty much exactly the same height as me, I’ve always pretty much thought of it as U = You, but obviously this doesn’t work if you are shorter/taller than me. Is there a conversion to a standard unit of measurement?
