Premier Built Aluminum Platform Racks - Strong but Lighter
than Traditional Steel Platform Racks
When you try to lift a steel rack off or replace it on your platform, you may be inducing unnecessary strain into your back muscles and risking serious back injury. Premier Racks are built with heavy gauge extruded aluminum slats. The posts are thick aluminum channel, this makes for a significantly lighter rack section and makes it much easier to move the sections when necessary. In fact, the typical Premier section weighs 34% less than a steel rack section. That’s 27 pounds or 12 pounds lighter than a steel section.

We also offer the “Swing Out” version of the front most rack on each side. This allows you to lift the aluminum rack just a bit, enough distance to disengage the vertical posts from the side pockets and swing it out and forward. This leaves you with access to load and unload large, heavy objects from the side and up close to the cab where it rides well and can be secured against the headboard.
