MetroMax Drying Rack

Metro® drying solutions put your customer & your employee safety first.

Eliminate wet nesting and minimize wet, slippery floors with MetroMax Drying Racks. Designed to promote food safety, the open-air design maximizes airflow for faster, safer drying while the smart new water capture system minimizes wet dangerous, slippery floors.


Key Benefits

  • Promotes food safety by preventing wet nesting, where two wet/damp items are nested together preventing proper airflow.
  • Superior air circulation: Fast drying of trays, cutting boards, pans, lids, pots and all sink items.
  • Drip Tray minimizes wet floors by collecting dripping water and funneling it to a removable full size steam pan.
  • "Hold strong" slots: Tray and Pan Racks have tall slots to assure trays, cutting boards, steam pans, and other tall items don't tip over.
  • Easy to Move with swivel polymer casters.
  • Easy to Clean: Shelf mats, posts and epoxy coated drying racks have built-in Microban antimicrobial product protection. It keeps the product "cleaner between cleanings"
  • Superior Organization: Optional hanging rails and grids help sort and dry utensils and other vessels with long handles.
  • NSF Listed
