Bluff Manufacturing Introduces Floor and Wall Racks for Safe Storage 4/27/2011 Products part of new slab handling equipment line

FORT WORTH, TX – April 27, 2011 – As part of its new line of slab handling equipment (SHE), Bluff Manufacturing introduces its A-Frame Slab Rack Floor Display Unit, Single-Sided Wall Display Rack and A-Frame Slab Racks, all designed to safely store and display heavy stone slabs in showroom applications. These products, along with the entire slab handling equipment line, are made in the company’s Fort Worth, Texas, manufacturing facility.

Similar to the A-Frame Slab Transport Rack, which protects personnel and stone slabs during loading and unloading, the A-Frame Slab Rack Floor Display Unit enhances the security of slabs in a public showroom. Built with heavy duty construction and specially designed cold formed sections of 50,000 PSI steel, the A-Frame Slab Rack Floor Display Unit features two all-welded A-frames securely joined with two structural angle cross members for a solid display unit. The A-Frame Slab Rack Floor Display Unit can be shipped anywhere in the United States, Canada and Mexico, and is easily assembled with furnished hardware.

The Single-Sided Wall Display Rack sits flush to a wall providing a secure platform for slab presentation. Each set contains two vertical frames which, when tied together with two structural horizontals, provides a single-sided display rack to support one piece of slab. The Single-Sided Wall Display Rack is made with specially designed cold formed sections of 50,000 PSI steel and is easily assembled with furnished hardware.

Bluff’s additional storage and showroom display option for stone slabs include the A-Frame Slab Rack. With an all welded steel frame manufactured from structural channel steel and punched for floor anchoring, the heavy duty construction provides unmatched durability. The A-Frame Slab Rack is available with either 5-inch or 6-inch deep pockets for safety post insertion at nine discrete locations. In addition, it is made in 5-foot sections for shipping convenience; sections can be bolted or connected for longer runs. Also available from Bluff Manufacturing are the A-Frame Slab Rack Post and A-Frame Slab Rack Post with Handle.

According to Clark Smith, president of Bluff Manufacturing, “Natural stone slabs are incredibly heavy materials that require specifically designed equipment to safely handle, transport and store them. All of Bluff Manufacturing’s slab handling products combine heavy duty steel frames and pipes, PVC protective caps and welded construction to ensure durability and safety.”

  • A-Frame Slab Transport Rack
