A situation we often run into is that trim needs to be pre-painted or stained before installation. This requires us to have a way to story large quantities of these materials and allow them to dry, while also protecting the newly created finish. We have used both traditional stacking systems and the Erecta-Rack, and wildly prefer the Erecta-Rack System. This system provides the following advantages. First, it is easily portable because of its light, take apart, minimalist design. Second, it offers superior stability to homemade racks, and because it is stackable, maintains stability as additional levels are added. Finally, points of contact with the rack are limited, which allows minimal damage to newly finished items during drying and storage. The optional carrying case makes transport and storage incredibly simply and efficient.
