The Choice of Leading Glass Manufacturers

Our durable construction and full weld seam joints are just two reasons why so many companies buy and buy again from us

Types of Glass Racks

There are two common style of glass racks, A-Frame and L-Buck racks each designed for specific applications. All of our racks can be stationery, forklift accessible, or mobile with the addition of heavy duty castors.

A-Frame Racks:
These freestanding racks have two upright sides connected by a crossbar at the top, and they may or may not have shelves. A-frame racks are often used to store or transport large sheets of glass inside a glass manufacturing plant or warehouse.

L-Buck Glass Racks:
An L-buck glass rack is a type of metal storage unit designed specifically for holding large, flat sheets of glass securely. They are typically L-shaped, with one long side and a shorter side that provides stability and secures sheet glass for storage or moving from one area to another.

Benefits of L-Buck Racks

Space efficiency:
L-bucks take up less floor space because they have a single upright back. This can be crucial in tight storage areas. Stability: The L-shaped design of L-bucks offers a wider base of support, which can be advantageous for storing particularly heavy or thick glass sheets.

Custom Built to Your Specifications

Our glass transport racks are custom fabricated to meet your size, load requirements and specifications. We also offer rack design services to help you create a custom rack that will meet your requirements.

Our racks feature rigid steel frames, full seam welds (not stitch welded to reduce costs) and have optional dunnage and security features to secure and protect the glass. Our quality control and assurance inspects each unit we build throughout the entire process to eliminate any issues. We also offer heavy-duty swivel casters to improve workflow.

We also offer complete finishing of your rack with paint or powder coating in a wide range of colors (even specific brand colors) to enhance and add to the durability of your racks in even the harshest environments. We complete the process by adding screening or stenciling of your company name, inventory number or department to the frame.
