We use them to hold our rails in our cookie storage and they are very heavy and they hold up to anything that happens to them

Cassandra A. from Cookie Munchers Tampa on 12/03/2021

Extremely easy to install, move or remove. This in very convenient for us as storage space must keep up with our constant change in supply and projects.

Jennifer E. from YWCA Central Maine on 05/21/2020

These go in quick and easy and do great to hold heavy containers on the coated wire shelves. The rails snap into place in seconds. The Avantco refrigerators can be very customized with the addition of extra shelves to fit your product/container heights.

Caroline C. from Jefferson Country Store on 09/26/2019

Rails work as they should. Over loading racks will result in bent rail security latch pin things. Clean up well. Do not rust. Easy to install and remove to move shelf around with ease.

Ruben S. from El Capitan Cocina on 03/18/2019

This shelf rail works great. It is very strong so you can put a good amount of weight on it. Exact replacement for an old unit we had.

Robert B. on 10/17/2018

works absolutely perfect. makes fridge clean-up a piece of cake. I am very happy with my Avantco Fridges, and because of accessories like this - I will continue to order more.

Peter T. from Weho Sausage And Catering Co on 04/24/2018

Great product fits well in freezer or fridge we recently bought. You can even fit full baking pans in the slots or a shelf. Durable and clean.

Brian J. from Bjames Llc on 04/16/2018

Bought these for my unit a while ago and they are great to have as extra rails. The full pans can rest on these without the need for a shelf.

Christopher C. from Just Eat This Catering on 04/02/2018

These are needed to add extra shelves to our avantco reach in refrigerator and they are just like the ones that come with the refrigerator.

Tracy B. from Life In The Slow Lane LLC. on 10/31/2017

We wanted to add another shelf to our reach in and was happy there was this option. We purchased 2 and a full perferated sheet pan to hold different types of meats for thawing and avoid cross contaimination.

Craig B. from Parsnipity Enterprises on 02/09/2017

Work great for not just holding the shelf but you can use them to make drawers out of commercial food pans and to just hold the pans.

Jack V. from Rooma4baking on 10/02/2016

I needed another shelf for my fridge and was glad to know that this was available. It was easy to put together and now the extra space is very handy!

Doan N. from Good Doggy on 06/29/2016

Solidly built rail, which makes putting shelves up in the avantco freezers easy. Not a fan of this system because it takes up more space, but on the plus side airflow is great.

Michael P. from Mike's Mindful Plate on 05/18/2016

These work as should and i have not had an issue with them. The stainless steel is on good quality, take the wrapper off sooner than later or it will be more difficult.

Tripps P. from Tripps Primal Farm And Kafé on 12/30/2015

Great product to help store food pans in your refrigerator or freezer. Saves time and money by not having to purchase additional shelves. Would recommend

Brian B. from B-4 Investments LLC Dba Wallys on 11/23/2015

Built to last these avantco shelf rails come In real handy in Our food truck since space is always an issue. Being able to hold two full size hotels pans really help us out a lot storage wise

William P. from Funky Fresh Food Truck on 06/18/2015

I purchased the additional rails for the refrigerator and it was well worth it, these allow me to be able to store additional full hotel pans, which is awesome.

Richard G. from Green Zone B & G on 05/29/2014

We bought extra of these for our Avantco CFD-2RR 54" Two Solid Door Reach-In Refrigerator so that I could simply slide in extra hotel pans of food. The design of the rails versus those stupid clips is great. And because you can slide full size pans right into them, you don't have to pay the extra price and buy extra racks, too.

Barry H. from A Tasty Affair on 03/21/2014

what can I say other than they arrived quick and were very cheap compared with my regular supplier. They are working fine will last a long time.

Joyce B. from Breezy Point International on 01/22/2014

These are convenient for placing additional racks inside your reach in fridge. My mistake was that I thought you can slide full bun sheets into them. You have to buy grill racks to fit them. Right now, not being used since grills are expensive.

Mitzmichael S. from KAMI Cakes on 10/11/2012

Thank you for your comment! Food pans will slide into the rails length-wise, but you are correct, sheet pans will not fit directly into the rails.

These are a must have they work great. We added them under our shelves to make use of that area then we slide steam pans in over the items below to utilize more space.
