Drying Without the Clutter

Looking at the base PDREX system, you can see why PaintLine thought expanding it to tackle wider applications made good sense.

PaintLine ProDryingRack EX-Plus PDREX-3

The PaintLine ProDryingRack EX-Plus accomplishes expansion by adding more towers. Using either three or four towers gives you between 60″ and 180″ of horizontal rack space. It also doubles the weight capacity of the PDREX to 1,800 lbs., still providing you with 15 removable vertical shelves.

Each tower in the ProDryingRack EX-Plus setup features 5″ locking casters and anti-torque stabilizers for rolling the whole rack to your desired area in the shop.

Though you can find the PaintLine product line in a growing number of online and brick and mortar storefronts, the entire PaintLine catalogue of painting solutions is available directly from the company website. You can find it by clicking here.

Technique, in this case, trumps technology.
