What Type of Z Rack Should I Purchase?

Z Racks come in different lengths and heights, but the biggest difference in Z-Racks comes to play when we talk about the thickness, or gauge of the material that they are made of.  The best Z-Racks for daily use that will withstand the heavy trials of a locker room, retail store, or laundry are going to be made of a heavy gauge material.  Made here in the USA, Z Racks from Quality Fabricators fit the bill if you are looking for a rack that will last.  There are cheaper imports available, but it is a you get what you pay for on most of those.  If you have ever flipped a Z-Rack, or had one fail because there was too much weight on it you will understand why you should look to purchase a Z Rack with a thick sturdy base, strong uprights, connectors and crossmembers.  Our USA Made 60” Single Rail Z-Rack can hold up to 500 lbs on a single hangrail.
