    This rack fits a full-width 500 series chassis perfectly. The woodworking is lovely, and it feels very sturdy. Because it’s such a snug, secure fit, the only thing I recommend is to install the chassis in the rack before installing the modules, otherwise you may have a hard time setting it in there gently! Thank you for a very nice piece to house some gear.

    We love our 3U rack, an elegant solution for our home stereo components. It’s a very solid piece too, we highly recommend Sanctus products and service.

We accept all major debit/credit cards, as well as PayPal.

We are committed to both quality and efficient production. With this in mind, our current production time is four weeks (28 days) for each order. This means you will receive tracking information via email on your order within 28 days after we have received payment for your order. We primarily ship via UPS Ground, which within the Continental US can take up to 5 business to travel from us to you. For some destinations, the shipping time may exceed that estimation. The closer you are in proximity to us (New Hampshire), the faster the shipping time. Please be advised that shipping times can take longer than expected in the holiday season or from uncontrollable outside factors (global pandemic).

We process orders on a first-come-first-serve basis and do not offer expedited production services.  If you’re interested in paying for expedited shipping services (our default shipping offering is UPS Ground), please contact us BEFORE making your purchase so we can send you a custom order for purchase with the upgraded shipping option of your choice.

Yes. Yes we do. Check out our “Ready To Ship” section.

We always welcome clients who elect to pick up their orders directly from us. Please contact us BEFORE making your purchase so we can send you a custom order for purchase with a reduced price reflecting your “local pick-up” choice for delivery.

We currently manufacture in Deerfield, New Hampshire in the barn of an 1782 farmhouse.

We offer four shades of stain for our finished items: Black, Kona, Walnut and Classic Oak. These colors are a water-based stain and poly combination made by Varathane. According to their labeling, the max VOC content on these stains is <275 g/L. The coloring of each stain does slightly vary depending upon the underlying wood type. For reference use the wood/stain swatch photos attached to each product to get a better idea of what to expect when ordering. Please note: the Black stain is just that, a stain and not a black paint. It is the darkest color we offer, but really a darker shade of brown.  

Yes. You can purchase stain swatches HERE.

We do not offer colors outside of the four stains noted above. However, we will sell you an unstained version of your desired item (sanded and ready for finish), and you can paint/stain it yourself any color you like. Please contact us BEFORE making your purchase so we can send you a custom order for purchase with your choice of a natural/unfinished look.

All of our racks receive size 10-32 screws. We sell packs of rack screws HERE.

Rack screws are sold separately and not included with our racks. However, each pack of our Maple Rack Spacers includes 12 corresponding rack screws.

Yes, we do. Contact us here and tell us about your custom project.
