The sleek, smooth finish of the uprights minimize cut-edge corrosion, and are built without holes on two faces of the frames for easier cleaning and bacteria prevention.



For better airflow, the diagonal upright frame bracing has been replaced with horizontal bracing, though there is enough spacing for oversize or infinite trays to pass through the upright frames. (Note: Diagonal bracing may be required in some instances.)


Custom bracing provides clearance between each level for greater airflow and accommodates ventilation system ducts, lighting fixtures, and other utilities. The bottom horizontal frame bracing can also be customized to provide the desired clearance for pipes, fittings, and other utilities just above floor level.



The beams are designed to minimize standing water, and the inverted reinforcements on the optional wire mesh decking prevents standing water.


The beams are adjustable at 2” (5.08 cm) increments and lock safely into the tapered holes of the upright frames. The strong welded uprights facilitate the assembly process.



The front-to-back flush or sloped universal supports are designed to accommodate trays and hang lighting fixtures.


The inclined supports allow for easy drainage:

  • Trays sloped over 8 feet (2.4m).
  • Trays sloped over the full length of the racking row.


The front-to-back universal supports integrate seamlessly with LED lights and allow for various lighting attachment positions. Brackets and mounting hardware are available to hang numerous models of LED light fixtures and Montel’s built-in LoopAir® dual ventilation system (patent pending).



In lieu of front-to-back supports to accommodate trays, hang lighting, or attach other utilities, you may opt for wire mesh decking. The wire mesh decking provides numerous possibilities for LED lighting attachment. The wire mesh decking is designed with upside-down reinforcements to eliminate standing water.



GROWRAK is finished with an ultra-reflective antimicrobial powder-coated white paint approved by the FDA.
