The heavy weight and dimensions of most granite slabs makes them difficult to transport. If stored incorrectly, the polished surface needed for some applications can get scratched, affecting the value of a slab or requiring further investment to buff out the damage.

The simplest solution to storage and transportation problems is an effective granite rack. At Roura Material Handling, the original inventor of the self dumping hopper, we pride ourselves in providing storage solutions such as granite transport racks that do the job right and that maintain their usefulness over time.

A Truly Versatile Granite Transport Rack

We understand our clients’ needs and are committed to offering a product that offers versatility, sturdiness and ease of transport. When you are looking for the right granite rack, one thing you are probably considering is whether or not it will be able to handle your inventory. One of the features you can find with our units is the capacity to mount additional racks, increasing the holding capacity of one rack and saving you from having to buy a whole new one.

The other advantage offered by our units is variability in the spacing between segments. Thanks to an ingenious design of mortise and tenon joint-locking assembly, you can customize each unit to fit your needs. If you need to relocate a unit, disassembly and reassembly are easy. These joints will stay securely in place until you manually release them.

Stability is Safety

Not only does having a stable base on your racks prevent your product from falling over and getting damaged, but it also reduces the likelihood of an accident. The racks that you find in our selection are all fitted with extra-wide bases, making them nearly impossible to tip over.

To add to this stability, we take things a step further by outfitting each granite rack with floor mounting cleats which will keep it from sliding around. Structural posts provide additional reinforcement so you can be assured that your racks will not break down under the weight of the slabs they hold.

Practical Enhancements

Every single one of our granite racks comes outfitted with protective white caps that prevent scratching. If you want extra insurance against scratches, you can also add protective strips made of rubber cushion. As mentioned above, you can add additional racks, but another option is to bolt two full racks together. All of our products can be combined and separated to suit the length that is most appropriate for your space.

What You Can Expect

Whatever the density of the product you are working with, you need a granite rack that you can depend on to bear the weight. Our racks can carry 4,500 pounds per post, and between posts, they can hold up to 9,000 pounds. The thickness of the posts directly correlates with how much weight they can bear.

The posts in our top-notch units are all uniformly measured at 60″ x 2″ x 2″ x 1/4″.  The base rails need to hold it all without giving out, and we suggest an ideal size of 10 inches, which is what you will find with each and every one of our units.

The racks we have available come in quite a few different sizes. You can find racks with as many as 20 posts or as few as 12 posts. Our largest units weigh over 1,000 pounds while our smallest ones weigh 610 pounds. Since our units are all interchangeable and can be combined, the amount you can store is really only limited by the space in your warehouse.
