What are tool racks, hooks and holders?

Tool racks, hooks, and holders are invaluable for all kinds of worker - from industry professional to amateur hobbyist, it is important to have a well-organised tool storage solution. All three items provide a handy and covenient way of storing your tool.

Why tool racks, hooks and holders?

Tool racks, hooks, and holders allow users to make use of wall space - a valued commodity, considering how cramped floorspace can get in warehouses and garages.

Not only is this a more space-effective solution, it also promotes workspace safety and organisation. With a dedicated tool hook, tools are far more likely to be put back in their correct place.

This allows for a far more efficient way of working. When tools are on the wall, users can quickly see what they're looking for at a glance, saving you time when working.

Types of tool racks, hooks, and holders

• Tool racks - Similar to shelves, tool racks provide a dedicated solution to keep tools and other items organised and out of the way. Racks are excellent for holding boxes of screws, nuts, bolts, and more. Some racks have dedicated spacers to keep items separate and organised.

• Tool hooks - Tool hooks are small, space-saving components that can be easily fastened to a wall. They come in a variety of designs and can be placed virtually anywhere. Some tool hooks are specially designed for certain tools, giving each tool it's own 'slot' for easy storage and identification.

• Tool holders - Tool holders come in a variety of styles, but the most common type is perforated panels. Perforated panel tool holders can be placed on the ground, making them suitable for places where wall space cannot be used. They typically use magnets or hooks to keep tools organised and in place.

Considerations when choosing a tool rack, hook or holder

• Size - As with any means of storage, the size of the item needs to be suited for your workspace. Be sure to select your tool rack, hook or holder to fit in your desired space.

• Material - Most tool hooks, racks and holders are manufactured from a robust material such as steel, to provide maximum durability. However, for smaller tools, something less resilient may suffice such as plastic or wood.

• Maximum Load- If you're planning on handing a more robust, weightier piece of tooling, it's worth checking that the product you intend to purchase has the correct specifications to bear the load.

What does galvanised steel mean and why is it beneficial for steel products to be galvanised?

Galvanisation is the process of applying a zinc coating to a product, usually manufactured from either steel or iron. By galvanising the steel, you bolster the material's resistance to corrosion and rusting, making your product last longer. Most tool racks, hooks and holders that are manufactured from steel will have been galvanised to bolster product longevity.
