Plate Glass Storage and Material Handling
You may be inclined to think that Weha USA provides equipment and tooling solely for the stone industry. However, that could not be further from the truth. Many Weha material handling equipment and tools designed to work on natural and engineered stone also are compatible with other materials as well. One example is glass. There are others too, but right now we will focus on the compatibility of A-frame racks used for plate glass.
