Tips on usage:
The Best Way to Dry Your Bars:
Speed drying by placing fans around trays. The slotted design and open sides allow maximum air flow around product.
We have found that the quickest way to stack and dry your bars is to stand them on the long edge. See diagram below.
Space them with about an 1/8″ (3mm) between the bars and about 1/4″ (6mm) between the rows. Take them off your Bar Cutting Table just the way they were cut, then just separate them out, as you place them on the tray.
The average 3.5 to 4 oz. (100g to 120g) bar size can stack about 100 to a tray (up to about 25 lbs. (11.4 kg).
If the bars are under 3/4″ (19mm), you may need to place a row on top of the bars, straddling the rows. See diagram below. This method works very well for small sample bars, even down to 3/8″ (9mm) or less. This locks them together and allows you to move the tray around. It’s quick and easy.
Try our Soap Tray Dolly (solid tray on wheels). It is inexpensive, durable and works on almost all applications. It also doubles as another tray.
For limited space considerations, stack trays as high as you want, for ease of use and working heights stack low. You are not restricted by rack limitations.
Need even more space and mobility? Stack the trays on a pallet and move easily with a pallet jack or fork lift.
