Our millwork stack racks are movable, stackable storage systems for windows, doors and other products. Because they’re movable, you can load millwork onto them directly at the assembly area and then move them to a warehouse or staging area. Because you can stack them up to three racks high, you can arrange them densely and thereby eliminate aisles and save warehouse floor space. They can even be loaded directly onto a delivery truck used in conjunction with curtain vans and piggyback lifts and thus eliminate manual loading and unloading.
