    Rack 482mm ou 42cm ou 19 pouces probably. The rack cabinet is "une armoire".
     

  6. The racks I've seen in telephone central offices were 24", not 19"

    He asked for Europe, not France :)
    But for France you're right: "rack 19 pouces". The rack cabinet is
    either "une armoire" or "une baie".

    They used to be called post office racks. In
    the US they are also called relay racks since they
    were made for telephone relays. In some countries,
    the telephones were run by the post office.

    Same in Germany where they say "19 Zoll Rahmen". Sometimes it's called
    VME rack because they are so popular.
     
  12. Same as over here. Smallest set of boobs I've ever seen.

    Rack Royale?

    What do they call a quarter pounder?

    True. In Europe (i.e. Brussels and Strasbourg) they probably call them
    1946/19/EEC and there's mandatory compliance with a 485 page "standard"
    (which does nothing but refer to other documents, which refer etc. per
    omnia saecula saeculorum) which everyone ignores.

    But being British, I've a tendency to think "Europe" means the other end
    of the Dover ferry route.

    Last time I looked, IEC297 was the dimensional standard.

    Well, that's where it starts ....

    Nope. He's buried in one committee whose purpose is to write the norms
