CE Pro 100 Names Top Rack Brands
Led by market stalwart Middle Atlantic, the rack category remains relatively unchanged except for Sanus making solid gains to claim the third spot.
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.
For the most part the rack category remains unchanged, led by market stalwart Middle Atlantic.
The one brand that made noise within the category is Sanus. Adding 11 dealers from its 2016 totals, Sanus is now solidly the third-most-used brand in the rack category.
Middle Atlantic: 79
Thermal Management: 2
