Rack is pleased to launch the new twentytwenty range.
twentytwenty is a modular grid based shelving/storage system that facilitates the mass personalisation of interior spaces.
The work place is evolving; the demand for adaptable, flexible spaces is greater than ever with more emphasis on creativity, collaboration and well being. Open plan offices, for all their benefits, are now required to do more and work harder. The need for furniture solutions to offer differing work zones, breakout spaces, social spaces and biophilic elements has never been so important. Coupled with less demand for physical storage space, there is great potential for a furniture system that offers all of these elements.
Utilising a small number of standard components twentytwenty can be configured in an infinite number of ways giving architects, designers and specifiers the flexibility to define and organise the workplace in a highly bespoke and individualised manner, and users the opportunity to personalise their space.
Should you wish to develop something unique and bespoke to you, please contact us.

I am delighted to announce that it is Rack’s intention to ‘re-open’ on Monday 4th May for ‘business as usual’.
Since ceasing production of office furniture products on Friday 3rd April in order to concentrate on the production of hospital beds, Rack has produced 3500 beds.
This has been a herculean team undertaking of which I am extremely proud, and my gratitude goes out to Rack’s entire workforce who, without exception, have stepped up and played their part at this time of national crisis.
However, I am delighted to have been recently advised (by people close to the heart of NHS procurement) that demand for emergency hospital beds is now expected to be at the lower end of the initial forecasts, and hence, orders have slowed as social distancing measures take effect.
In addition to this, and whilst cognisant that the lockdown has only just been extended, Rack’s directors are firmly of the opinion that the government will start to ease lockdown measures week commencing 11th May and that Rack should plan accordingly.
I am therefore pleased to confirm that, following fulfilment of Rack’s last order for hospital beds on Friday 24th April, the factory will be re-configured through W/C 27th April and gradually turned back over to the production of office furniture; with ‘full service’ being resumed the following week.
Consequently, if you have any queries about the status of orders placed prior to the lockdown, or new orders that you wish to discuss/place, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
We look forward to hearing from you soon. Stay safe.
Following a collapse in orders for office furniture components, it is no longer financially viable for Rack to remain open. Consequently, as of 5:00pm tonight Rack will progressively cease production of all office furniture related products and dedicate the company’s entire productive capacity to the manufacture of hospital beds required by the NHS for the emergency treatment of Covid-19 patients.
All outstanding orders scheduled for delivery next week will be completed and delivered as planned, however, thereafter the factory will be ‘closed’ until Monday 20th April, whereupon the directors will review the situation.
During this time all office staff will be redirected to other duties and the offices will effectively be shut. The three directors will be available on their mobiles and contactable by email, however, I would ask that you only contact us if your enquiry is absolutely ‘essential’, or to keep us updated us as to the status of your business.
The decision to ‘close’ the factory has not been taken lightly and we understand the implications this will potentially have on our customers businesses, however, in light of the national crisis posed by Covid 19 we would ask for your and understanding and forbearance at this time.
Rack is pleased to launch the new Sollis Booth range. Designed as a response to the changing demand of the office furniture environment, sollis offers an unparalleled level of quality, value and craftsmanship; brought together into one simple, beautiful offering. Sollis can be specified as a high back booth, for occupancies of two, four and six; or as a high back sofa, in single, double and triple seat units and also as a range of workstations.
To enhance Rack’s sheet metal working capabilities and capacity, and in line with Rack’s policy of continuous investment, Rack is pleased to announce it has taken delivery of Salvagnini P2 Lean panel bender.
This compact automated panel bender configures tooling and manipulates components automatically, thus greatly reducing setup times and improving overall productivity. The P2Lean also increases both the complexity and range of bend profiles Rack can now produce, thereby substantially expanding the design possibilities for future products.
Long coveted by Rack’s MD, ever since he first saw one 25 years ago, the Salvagnini’s arrival and commissioning represents the passing of another major milestone for the company.

We are delighted to announce that Rack has been included in the publication ‘1000 Companies to Inspire Britain 2019’.
Produced by The London Stock Exchange Group the report highlights and celebrates the importance of independent SME’s to the British economy and goes on to name the top performing companies within their Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) Groupings.
To qualify companies must be registered and active within the UK and have revenues of between £6m - £250m. Investment vehicles and funds are excluded. Financial performance is based upon average annual turnover growth rates calculated over a three year period (based on four sets of accounts), with the calculations weighted to favour latest-year growth. Eligible companies are then separated into their SIC groupings and ranked to identify those companies that have most outperformed their sector averages.
Rack is delighted to have been included within this prestigious report and the senior management would like to thank everyone at Rack for their hard work and commitment over many years. It is their collective efforts and dedication that got Rack to where it is today. A big thank you to all concerned.
