Just a suggestion on something to check out, no idea if it'll work
or not, but I've seen rackmount cases for the mini-itx formfactor boards.
Specifically, 1u cases that can hold 2 or even 4 of them. Overkill in this
case, but it might work.

If the cases have wall-mount tabs you might consider looking at that if
there's a piece if backboard available to mount things to.
