Heavy Duty Storage Shelving Built with Steel Components for Superior Strength & Durability
Because tools and dies are vital components of your manufacturing process, we think it makes a lot of sense to carefully consider how they’re stored. Suitable storage of heavy or large forming dies, fixtures, jigs and molds requires more than standard pallet racks or spare floor space. Ross can design and manufacture an efficient, robust racking system to meet your unique needs. And like all of our racking solutions, Dexco® Tool and Die Rack Storage Racks are built with structural steel components for superior quality, strength and durability.
Tooling, dies and other manufacturing equipment can be tricky to store because of their size, weight and inability to be stacked. As a result, these indispensable tools are often stored on the manufacturing floor, where they take up space, are susceptible to damage and can endanger workers. Dexco Tool and Die Racks provide vertical storage capacity on high-strength shelves designed to accommodate the unique characteristics of manufacturing equipment. This type of storage system offers many advantages including:
Dexco industrial tool and die racks can hold items on removable deck plates, fork entry bars or open beams for easy location and access. By making organization more efficient, tool and die racks also streamline the setup process.
Tool and die racks increase floor space for manufacturing. Die storage racking systems free up walking space in facilities by keeping equipment off of the floor. Since these racking systems effectively use vertical space, you can clear more horizontal space in your facility.
Structural steel I-beams resist damage and keep your tooling secure as forklifts move through your die storage area. Each rack also has an optimized design for forklift access to reduce the risk of damage during loading and unloading.
Engineered racks enable safe tool storage. Manufacturers that store tool and die equipment on the floor put their staff at risk of strain and accidents. A racking system can lower this risk when implemented as part of a comprehensive safety plan.
We will enable you to change or add to your racking system during or after the initial concept design. Our custom design options and modular systems give you optimal control over the layout of your industrial die rack shelving.
Choose from standard designs or custom engineering. Standard designs offer the best value and shortest lead times, and custom orders provide tailored features with longer lead times.
Any business that uses or makes dies and tooling can benefit from a racking system. Customers that use our tool and die storage racks include:

Dexco Rack Systems are engineered using American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) standards, which were developed to guide the design of large steel structures such as bridges and buildings. The stringent nature of these standards, coupled with Ross Technology’s conservative approach to structural rack design, mean you can be confident that your people and products are safe and secure.
All vertical and horizontal members are manufactured using wide flange beams with a 50 KSI minimum yield, offering greater strength and durability compared to roll-formed steel. As a result, these racks better resist damage from material handling equipment and provide larger load capacity within a given space.
For the shortest lead time and most economical price, consider our standard industrial die rack shelving with the following features:
Our fabricators apply a powder coating in-house as the standard finish. Powder coating offers basic protection from rust and wear and provides a uniform look.
As your commercial die storage rack manufacturer, we provide custom options for your racking system, such as:
For added corrosion protection in harsh environments, you can request a hot-dip galvanized coating for your industrial tool and die racks. This treatment offers a high level of corrosion resistance and can be coupled with a durable powder paint top coat.
During the rack manufacturing process, our fabricators follow leading industry guidance for steel construction, maintaining compliance with the following standards:
At Ross Technology, we maintain ISO 9001:2015 standards for quality control in all aspects of our business, striving for continual improvement in:
Columns and shelf beams are bundled to make installation simple and shipping cost-effective. Detailed installation manuals are provided for your installation crew. Ross also offers installation services – please contact us for more details.
Semi-annual maintenance is recommended to 1) inspect structural components and welds for damage caused by overloading or forklift equipment 2) tighten or replace missing bolts and anchors and 3) confirm racks are plumb.
Ross offers both standard and custom engineered tool and die rack designs for a wide range of weight and capacity requirements. Standard designs offer the best value and shortest lead times.
Ross warrants that all of its manufactured products shall remain free of defects in material and workmanship under normal use for a period of one year from the date of delivery.
The American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), headquartered in Chicago, is a not-for-profit technical institute and trade association established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design community and construction industry in the United States. AISC’s mission is to make structural steel the material of choice by being the leader in structural-steel-related technical and market-building activities, including: specification and code development, research, education, technical assistance, quality certification, standardization, and market development. AISC has a long tradition of service to the steel construction industry providing timely and reliable information.
Applicable Standard: AISC 360, Specification for Structural Steel Buildings.
ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international voluntary consensus standards. Today, some 12,000 ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence.
The American Welding Society (AWS) was founded in 1919 as a multifaceted, nonprofit organization with a goal to advance the science, technology and application of welding and related joining disciplines. From factory floor to high-rise construction, from military weaponry to home products, AWS continues to lead the way in supporting welding education and technology development to ensure a strong, competitive and exciting way of life for all Americans.
