60" Weha 10' Buffalo Slab Rack

The Weha Buffalo Bundle Slab Storage Rack 10 foot long with 16 60" Safety Poles. 6 Point Post Touch Locking System.

This slab rack is fully Hot-Dip galvanized for longer life and better durability and has a World Patent Design. Buffalo Slab Bundle Storage Racks represent the latest technology in vertical stone storage and are rated for 11,500 lbs. for each set of poles used on the rack.

Rack Design

Buffalo Bundle Slab Storage racks are designed with a 6 point post touch locking system. Other slab rack bases touch the pole in just 1 or 2 places. However, the Weha Buffalo Slab Rack base works using 6 different pressure points on the post. This increases the metal to metal contact from a standard 4 1/2" to over 9 1/2". So the surface contact is doubled.

This world patented design offers the safest and strongest method of storing stone slabs. This includes bundles of stone such as:

  • Granite
  • Limestone
  • Marble
  • Sandstone
  • Quartz
  • Slate
  • Onyx
  • Soapstone
  • Quartzite
  • Engineered Stone

The special patent multi locking post to base design produces the most surface contact between base and post than any other slab rack system on the market; increasing the structural strength by 57%. This translates into a greater weight capacity, with full confidence and worry free storing of full bundles of 2cm and 3cm granite and marble slabs.

Each Buffalo Slab Storage base has 14 receivers spaced at 8 1/2" on center and 6" from hole to hole. Included at each end of the bases are anchor holes for securing the Buffalo bundle racks to the floor when this is necessary.

Hot-Dip Galvanized Posts

The posts of the slab rack are 2 3/8" x 2 3/8" x 60" in size and are fully hot-dip galvanized. Additionally, each post comes with the Weha signature safety angle bracket. This angle bracket faces the stone and offers a fail proof way to set the angle for the stone to the best position. This ensures that the safest and least amount of weight is transfered to the poles when the rack is loaded.

Each post comes with white rubber caps for safe and scratch proof storage. The Buffalo poles come with special lock notches that securely lock into the base. This adds additional structural strength to the poles and increases weight capacity.

  1. Most Economical: Galvanized steel is often the least expensive initial choice. As other labour intensive coatings have risen in rates, galvanizing has maintained a consistent price-point. Moreover, it lasts longer and requires less maintenance, making it the most cost effective, long-term option.
  2. Maintenance-free: Galvanizing provides maintenance-free corrosion protection, unlike other protective coatings. This mitigates long-term costs, hassles and disruptions to production.
  3. Longest Lifespan: Galvanized coatings on typical structural members have a life expectancy in excess of 100 years.
  4. Most Durable: A galvanized coating has a unique metallurgical structure, providing outstanding resistance to damage during transport, erection and service.
  5. Most Reliable Performance: Galvanizing is carried out to ASTM A123 and standard, minimum coating thicknesses are applied. Coating life and performance are reliable and predictable as it’s performance is based on the known corrosion rate of zinc. Galvanized steel provides a thick, complete and easily inspected coating.
  6. Most Protection: Galvanizing protects every part of a structure, including recesses, sharp corners and inaccessible areas. Galvanized coatings also provide cathodic or sacrificial protection to small areas of steel that are exposed due to damage. Unlike other coating options, small damaged areas are automatically protected and don’t require touch-ups due to zinc’s sacrificial nature.
  7. Environmental Sustainability: Zinc, like steel, is a natural substance that is recyclable.
