Bonar Plastics


Rack-Master’s™ revolutionary design helps wine makers focus more on making wine, rather than being burdened with rack and barrel maintenance issues. A unique all plastic construction provides complete corrosion resistance and a gentle surface texture that protects expensive oak barrels from unnecessary handling damage. Rack-Master™ is also built to last with unparalleled impact strength, which resists the denting and paint chipping associated with steel racks. This proven durability is backed by the industry’s best warranty protection, offering twice the coverage of the nearest competitor.

The Rack-Master™ design is also very versatile in that every dimension was carefully crafted to accommodate the wine industry’s most popular barrel handling and washing equipment, and is stacking compatible with existing steel barrel rack systems, making the switch to Rack-Master™ a seamless change for existing winery operations. Finally, if Rack-Master™ ever has to be replaced at the end of its useful life, Bonar Plastics has a return program, where used racks are welcomed back to be reprocessed into new racks, providing the wine industry with a documented cradle to grave solution.
