1. What is a Dunnage Rack?

The Dunnage Rack enables the storage of food and perishable items just off the floor in wet, refrigerated chillers and coolrooms. A single- or double-tier Dunnage Rack design and open-style shelf surface provide excellent air circulation around the products stored. Various sizes of Dunnage racks in zinc-plated and stainless steel finishes are available for sale. Capacities of around 450kg per shelf are also available.

2. Dunnage rack sizes

A variety of standard shelf heights, bay widths, and shelf depths make this type of shelving suitable for almost any location, including coolrooms and chillers, for example.

a) Lengths of Dunnage Rack

600mm, 750mm, 900mm, 1050mm, 1200mm, 1350mm, 1500mm, 1650mm, or 1800mm overall.

b) Widths

450mm, 525mm, or 600mm

c) Heights

Typically, a single-tier rack has a shelf height of 200mm above the ground. Similarly, a 2-tier rack has a lower shelf height of 200mm and an upper shelf height of 400mm. 150mm vertical clearances are available between shelves within either design.

3. Multiple-Level Dunnage Rack

This multi-tiered style is also called Dunnage Shelving. While the single-tier units are not designed to be stackable, there are several options available when more than one level is required.

Within the Dunnage Shelving post range, 2, 3, 4, and 5 tiers are available with post heights up to 2000mm. This is especially the case when Dunnage-style shelving is added to Coolroom shelving to form a hybrid design. The bottom levels are for heavier use, and the upper levels are for lighter use in this scenario.
