Dishes and glassware are a delicate subject – literally! Dish racks are used to hold and protect dish and glassware as these fragile items run their course to and from the dish room. Unfortunately, finding a place to store the racks, as well as having the means to efficiently transport them to their destination, can be an issue. Here are three ideal ways to safely store and transport your dish and glassware racks.
Broken glassware can quickly put a dent in an operator’s budget. Transporting cups and glasses can, by any method, be a tricky business and is often how glassware meets its end. By using a cup/glass dolly, the odds of your new glasses arriving safely at their destination can be stacked in your favor.
These small dollies can be placed at tray drop-off tables, hidden discreetly at waiter station, or any other area where glassware needs to be held and protected before transport to and from the dish room. They are designed to securely hold single or multiple 20”x20” racks.
Dish racks are a necessity in any commercial foodservice environment, but when they’re not being used, they take up valuable space. Wall-mounted dish rack holders resolve this issue by holding empty 20”x20” dishracks on their side and mounted to the wall to clear up clutter and free up space. New Age Industrial dish racks are constructed from aluminum meaning they’ll never rust or corrode in wet conditions.
If you have larger loads of cups and glasses to transport, or their destination is further away, mobile cup and glass racks can be a great addition. They are designed to carry anywhere from six to nine racks, allowing you to keep your ware organized and secure. Engineered to support heavy loads, New Age Industrial glass racks are built on 5” plate casters for ease of transport.
