About ROCKET RACK®
The ROCKET RACK® System was designed & patented by Ron Meyer, a former IBEW (Local One) electrician working mainly in the food-processing industry. He was frustrated with the expensive and dangerous process of on-site rack fabrication.
“During one particularly fast-track project, I was fed up with the pipe-rack fabrication process. I’d been toying with the design for a prefabricated system – a pre-slotted rack with mounting holes at each end. A slot would allow for repositioning of the conduit, creating precise alignment of the entire run. A machinist friend was able to turn out a batch on short notice. We completed the job in record time; our customer was thrilled. My Project Manager suggested I apply for a patent.”
The company was formed shortly thereafter while Ron continued to work as an electrician. Julie Meyer, Ron’s wife, headed the operation from home. The first patents came in 2009 with the introduction of the original products, the ROCKET RACK® Standard and Wall Mount and Coated Mounting Rod. Along the way a new product was designed – the ROCKET RACK® TentedTM (slot and mounting holes cut into the peak of the angle) resulting in a total of five patents.
Today ROCKET RACK® is used in food/beverage manufacturing facilities all over the U.S. Says Meyer, “Having been in the trade, working on the same kinds of projects that my customers are working, I know these guys need their materials fast. For that reason we keep a large inventory, so most orders ship same day. Our customers say they love our products. They’re able to pass the value along to their customers.”
The ROCKET RACK® System gives food manufacturers a smooth, sanitary way to install conduit or process pipe. Its patented slot design eliminates harborage points caused by recessed spaces and exposed threads.
It is infinitely reusable, as pipe and conduit can be placed anywhere along the slot. When re-tooling or re-configuring a plant layout, existing ROCKET RACK® racks can be disassembled and re-installed again and again, making it a sustainable component of your installation.
And, of course the safety aspects of a prefabricated system are immeasurable to the contractor.
ROCKET RACK® saves time and money and meets all standards set forth in the 2016 Food Safety Modernization Act.
