Middle Atlantic’s racks are getting downright sexy.

On a more serious note, Middle Atlantic was showing off its new Residential Designer Rack (RDR) series at EHX Spring, touting an aesthetic appeal making it well suited to be on display in a home vs. hidden in closet like racks usually are.

According to Jay Franetovich, application engineer at Middle Atlantic, the pre-configured rack has “four pillars” of configuration:

  • Cable management
  • Thermal management
  • Built-in power distribution strip
  • Aesthetics

The unit ships loaded with the accessories.

From a visual standpoint, the wood and metal unit has sleekly designed, patterned shelves and unobtrusive venting panels between each shelf.

The three-shelf S3 unit has an MSRP of $1,100, while the S4 is $1,250 and the S6 is $1,400.
