1/3 Blank Rack Panels?

I was just wondering if anyone had found a supplier of 1/3RU blank rack panels?

I am just re-organising the racks in my sterling modular desk, where the rack rails have three evenly spaced screws holes per 1RU. So i am hoping to gets little more air flow through the racks and to separate all the gear a little, so 1/3RU blank panels would work perfectly, without having to dedicate a full rack space.

I just wanted to check before looking into custom options.

Thanks

Edit: just on further information, the rack rails don't have evenly spaced rack holes per individual rack unit, so 1/3 panels actually won't work, is anyone using half rack panels in the sterling modular desks?

I've got stacks of those 1/2-U jobbers. They're great.

That said -- You're going to have pieces that aren't screwed in - or spacers that aren't screwed in - depending on what's in the rack. But it's not like anything is going to fall out...

Middle Atlantic manufactures both 1/2 and 1/3 rack filler panels. They also make 1/2 rack-width cabinets and related hardware which are handy when a full 19 inch rack is too wide.

i've got these, but they don't fit into my sterling modular. either the space between 2 units is too large or too small for the 1/2 rack panel.

Sorry Riccardo, this was Waltz's last post before getting banned and I didn't know where else to ask the question. I know its none of my business, but he's one of the last people I'd expect to get banned. Would you mind filling us in? Maybe via PM?

No worries. I have just checked and I'm sure he will be allowed back in a few days.
Please guys and girls make sure you follow forum rules, especially rule number one.
