CE Pro 100 Names Top Rack Cooling System Brands

SnapAV’s Strong brand closes the gap to share second place with Active Thermal Management (ATM), right behind Middle Atlantic.

Middle Atlantic is the No. 1 brand in the 2017 CE Pro 100 Brand Analysis for rack cooling systems.

CE Pro's annual Brand Analysis study surveys the top 100 highest-revenue residential integration firms, otherwise known as the CE Pro 100, to determine their preferred brands in the categories of audio, video, home automation, networking, lighting control, security and more.

In this category-by-category breakdown, senior editor Bob Archer delivers an in-depth look at the most frequently used manufacturers in 55 product categories. The numbers associated with each manufacturer reflect the number of CE Pro 100 dealers using that brand.

After pulling into a near tie with Active Thermal Management in 2016, SnapAV’s Strong brand closed the gap to share second with Active Thermal Management (ATM), right behind Middle Atlantic.

Popping into the top five, Cool Components has nearly a quarter of CE Pro 100 backing. Sanus adds five dealers from last year’s tally.
