Debunking Myths About Our Barrel Racks: The Truth Behind Our Manufacturing Process

In recent times, we’ve come across a few rumors concerning the quality of our wine barrel racks, particularly regarding our refurbished racks. As a company dedicated to excellence in manufacturing and refurbishing wine barrel racks, we believe it is essential to address these misconceptions head-on and provide clarity based on facts.

The Rumor: Our refurbished racks are said to harbor internal rust inside the steel tubes.

The Rumor: The proximity of our manufacturing facility to the beach and leads to faster rusting of our racks due to the salty air.

The Truth: Our location by the beach does not compromise the quality of our racks. In fact, we take meticulous steps to ensure the durability and longevity of our products, irrespective of environmental factors. We use a Pangborn wheel-abrator shot blasting system to clean all racks—both new and refurbished. This state-of-the-art cleaning process leaves a fine rough finish on the steel, which enhances the adherence of the powder coating. Contrary to the rumor, we do not powder coat over rust. Instead, our rigorous cleaning process ensures a pristine surface for coating.

Our Commitment to Quality

1. Double Coating Process: Unlike many other manufacturers, we apply two coats of powder coating to our racks. This extra layer of protection significantly enhances the durability and resistance of our racks against environmental factors.

2. Superior Material Thickness: We use the highest thickness for our metal, at 0.065 inches. This commitment to using premium materials ensures that our racks are robust and long-lasting.

3. Attention to Detail: If powder coating ever peels off, it’s usually due to external factors such as forklift impacts or damp storage conditions, not due to any flaws in our manufacturing process. When a forklift damages a rack, the powder coating can chip, leading to potential rust formation. However, this is an issue stemming from handling and storage practices, not from our manufacturing quality.


We stand by the quality and integrity of our wine barrel racks, whether new or refurbished. Our advanced manufacturing and refurbishing processes, combined with our commitment to using high-quality materials, ensure that our products meet the highest standards. We encourage our customers to reach out directly with any concerns or questions, as transparency and customer satisfaction are our top priorities.

Thank you for your continued trust and support.
