Extend rack mount UPS to power wall mounted devices

we recently installed a rack mounted UPS at a customer site.  we would like to feed UPS power to the wall mounted devices.  we have two choices, either buy a wall mountable UPS or use an extension cord from the rack UPS to the wall.  I would prefer the latter as the current UPS is only at a 15% load but don't want it to look tacky with an extension cord running to the wall.  what is the standard in these cases.  is there a professional looking power strip that we can use?

Thanks for the recommendation.  I ordered the PDU1215 which is a 15amp vs a 20amp as shown in your link.  The unit comes with a 15ft power cord so we should be good.

Let's hope there's sufficient bits of bent metal to mount it on the wall, if it says 0U that's generally a clue to it having several brackets included.

According to website ---- "Multi-outlet power distribution unit is the ideal means of powering multiple loads in 19 inch rackmount, wallmount and under-counter
applications"

it states wallmount and under-counter applications so it has to have some sort of brackets.
