You can also choose from our very-own-manufactured plastic dunnage racks and aluminum dunnage racks.
A Look at Dunnage Racks
Dunnage racks are low, durable racks constructed of either plastic (most commonly polypropylene or other types of thermoplastic polymer) or aluminum. A dunnage rack is a great way to store food, ingredients, or beverages and drinks inside busy commercial kitchens designed to store restaurant items.
In addition, most health-and-safety codes regardless of state or city, states that any food item, ingredient, or beverages must be stored in storerooms or inside walk-in fridges and freezers at least six inches above the ground. This is where a heavy-duty and durable dunnage rack comes in. A dunnage rack will help you make sure that you can keep your food items and ingredients safe and sanitary at all times.
Two of the most common dunnage racks include aluminum dunnage racks and plastic dunnage racks, which are both guaranteed rust-free and heavy-duty. This is the reason why a plastic and aluminum dunnage rack are very common must-haves for any restaurant or food-service establishment that regularly stocks their own food stuffs, beverages, and ingredients for the long term. A dunnage rack is perfect for storing heavy food products such as tubs of processed food, various crates of beverages and ingredients, and sackfuls of corn or flour.
Because it is both difficult and hazardous to place heavy items on relatively high shelves, a dunnage shelf is an excellent and sanitary alternative to simply putting boxes or crates directly on the floor. A dunnage rack usually stands between six to twelve inches (but not more) and can handle up to a couple of thousand pounds of weight at one time, depending on the type of dunnage shelf you are using. One good thing to remember, though, is to instruct your staff to follow the proper way of lifting heavy weights—which is to make sure that they bend their knees, using their legs—instead of simply bending over to pick up a sack or crate for instance, which could result in painful and potentially life-threatening back injuries.
The Dunnage Rack: An Versatile Piece of Restaurant Equipment
Some of the big advantages dunnage racks include keeping food, beverages, and ingredients safe and sanitary inside both dry and refrigerated storage areas as well as providing an extra storage area, allowing you to store bulky and heavy items that include canned food items and even sacks of rice, flour, sugar, or kernels of corn. Needless to say, because of good-quality dunnage racks the food products in your restaurant can safely stay off the floor, ensuring a sanitary environment.
Both plastic dunnage racks and aluminum dunnage racks help make rearranging and cleaning of your storage areas easy and convenient. All in all, a dunnage rack can guarantee a convenient and cost-effective solution for storing your food items in both dry and refrigerated areas.
