1. What is a Dunnage Rack?

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 design and open style shelf surface provides for excellent air circulation around the products stored. Capacities of around 450kg per shelf are available.

3. Multiple Level Dunnage Rack

This multi-tiered style is also called Dunnage Shelving. Whilst the single-tier units are not designed to be stackable, there are several options possible 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.
