What is a double sided storage rack?

Imagine a robust, freestanding unit specifically designed to store your glass sheets securely and efficiently. That’s the essence of a double-sided storage rack. These racks utilise both sides of the frame, essentially doubling the storage capacity of a single-sided unit.

  • Optimum Dimensions: Our rack boasts an impressive 5000mm length, 2500mm height, and 1250mm width, providing ample space for your glass inventory.
  • Material Options: Choose from a variety of colours (red, green, or black) to complement your work environment.
  • Durability and Strength: Crafted with high-quality materials, this rack is built to withstand the demands of everyday use.
  • Accessibility: The open design allows for easy loading, unloading, and access to your stored glass.

Double sided vs. A-Frame / vertical storage racks:

While A-frame racks offer a similar vertical storage solution, they often cater to a wider range of materials like timber, metal, or plastic. Here’s a breakdown of the key differences:

Double Sided Storage Racks:

  • Designed Specifically for Glass: Optimised dimensions and features cater to the specific needs of storing glass sheets securely, like those compatible with our Half Jumbo Glass Rack.​
  • Double-Sided Utilisation: Maximises storage capacity by utilising both sides of the rack.
  • Open Design: Enables easy access and retrieval of glass sheets.
  • Colour Options: Adds a touch of style to your storage solution.

A-Frame / vertical storage racks:

  • Multi-Purpose: Designed for storing various materials, potentially requiring adjustments for optimal use with glass.
  • Single or Double Sided: May require additional units to achieve the same storage capacity as a double-sided rack.
  • Adjustable Compartments: Flexibility in compartment size may not be ideal for standardised glass sheets.
  • Limited Customisation: Often limited colour options compared to double-sided storage racks.

For businesses specialising in glass handling, the Double Sided Storage Rack emerges as the clear winner. Its specific design features, double-sided utilisation and focus on glass sheet security make it an unmatched storage solution.
