What sets our SK4000 heavy-duty tool & die racks apart from other tool & die racks is the upright column. The SK4000 upright column is made of heavy tubular steel resembling a building column. It is virtually indestructible. If we could make ALL upright columns for racks with the SK4000 tubular upright column we would but it is cost prohibitive unless used for heavy duty applications. You probably won’t be replacing this upright column due to damage as it is so robust.

TIP FROM THE PRO’S: Tool & Die Rack Shelf Capacity is based on uniform distributed load. If storing tools and dies on blocks we recommend you switch to full length runners that span from front to back of shelf to distribute the weight. Beams have allowable deflection is L/180. Ideally depth of rack should match depth of tool & die and loads should be placed over beams as well.
