Knapheide Utility Rack

The Knapheide Utility Rack – the latest product release from The Knapheide Manufacturing Co. – combines strength, durability and aesthetics to form the best service body utility rack in the industry.

The utility rack’s construction features square and rectangular steel tube for enhanced strength and appearance. With a 1,000-pound max rating load, the Knapheide Utility Rack has more than enough payload to handle a wide variety of longer items including pipe, conduit, lumber and ladders. The design accommodates forklift loading on either side with raised cross sections, while the rear swing-away and center removable cross sections allow for the loading of taller items. Additional features include a round front bar that reduces road noise and integrated tie-down hooks in each vertical post for securing cargo.

Knapheide offers the utility rack in a black or white durable powder-coat finish. The rack will be compatible with a variety of body and chassis combinations, including class 2-5 regular, extended and crew cab chassis, and 8-, 9- and 11-foot Knapheide Service Bodies.
