Vertical and shallow rack

I've got a few rows of Moogerfoogers mounted in Moog's rack thing. I'd like to mount them vertically and to use as little horizontal space as possible. Most music rack equipment is quite deep, wasting floor space.

I found 19" server racks, like this: https://www.racksolutions.eu/relay-racks.html or https://www.startech.com/ca/Server-Mana ... POSTRACK42

I presume it uses the same hole spacing and width as music gear, but I've never seen people use them in a music context. Does anyone know if they might work - or be a bad idea for other reasons?

I would think that would work. You just need to make sure the weight balances and wouldn't tip these over. The MF's kind of have all of the weight in the front when in the racks.

I built something similar for my MF Racks. I just bought rack rails and made a shallow wood case to mount them. Not sure why the pic is upside down, but if you click it, it should be displayed correctly.

Thanks! Good tip about the centre of mass. I was figuring I'd have to have weights at the base and/or a wire anchor to the wall.

...and nice Moogy setup you have :)
