196HP Lightweight Eurorack Rail Silver (one piece) for building your DIY eurorack case. These rails are smaller and lighter than the standard rails therefore are a perfect choice for portable eurorack cases! The basis of those rails is the same as in standard profiles but the entire back of the profile has been removed. These changes in design allowed for a reduction of the weight for over -40%! Therefore our Lightweight Eurorack Rails are perfect for all sorts of portable DIY eurorack cases where weight is a crucial factor. Rails are anodized to natural aluminium/silver color – characteristic for most eurorack cases. Rails are equipped with a lip – for that reason, they are well suited for holding eurorack modules in place in perfectly aligned horizontal lines.
A suitable size of screws to fix the modules to the rail (assuming a modular face plate thickness of 2mm) is an M3 x 6mm or M3 x 8mm if a washer is used.
EURORACK MODULES FIXING
Besides rails, you will most likely also search for modules fixing to hold the modules securely in place. We’ve got you covered! Especially for that purpose, we have for you M3 Sliding Nuts or M3 Threaded Strips – all you need to do is to choose what is your preference.
A suitable size of screws to fix the modules to the rail (assuming a modules face plate thickness of 2mm) is an M3 x 6mm or M3 x 8mm if a washer is used. To prevent scratches on the modules front panels we recommend using Anti Rack Rash Screws.
