We manufacture all our racks individually and by hand in our workshop, so for the majority of our racks you can have them made to any width, depth or height you want! Please visit our Gallery page to take a look at some of the customised designs we've produced in the past. You can order a rack to your own specifications using our online ordering system, or contact us on either +44 1572 756 447 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd prefer to discuss your order with one of our experts.
The LP pack is a dedicated section within your rack to store your vinyl records, offering two additional internal legs on each side and a rear crossbar to prevent your records from falling. If you order a four-tier rack, one of the tiers will be allocated to this section if you select the LP pack upon purchase.
The thickness of the solid hardwood plinth is dependent on the range you have selected. Our Podium XS, Reference and XL racks have 40mm thick plinths, the Omnium8 and Omnium8 XL have 27mm thick plinths, and the Podium Slimline, Slimline XS and Slimline XL have 22mm thick plinths.
Yes we do! Whilst 15mm isolation spikes are included with your order, if you would like to purchase our large 30mm stainless steel spikes these are available to order separately in the Accessories section of our website. You can also order these from this section at a later date if you wish as all of our racks are built to be compatible with both sizes.
For racks: The leg height is the measurement of the wooden leg plus the 15mm spiked foot. So, this is the internal height from the top of one plinth to the underside of the next - or the “gap” between tiers. To calculate your required height, check the dimensions of your equipment and if your manual recommends a certain amount of space around the component to allow for airflow. For speaker stands: The height you enter will be the total height of the stands, including the base and top plinths, and also the spikes.
The internal space of the rack is dependent on the range you have chosen. For the Podium XS, Reference and XL, the internal space for the range is between the inside of the legs. To work this out, you need to deduct 112mm from the external dimensions that you require. For the Podium Slimline, Slimline XS and Slimline XL, the internal space for the range is also between the inside of the legs. To work this out, you need to deduct 84mm from the external dimensions that you require.
Locking nuts for spikes on the base give a 6-7mm height adjustment which can eliminate any wobble that may be there due to a slightly uneven floor. These spikes are useful on speaker stands to prevent movement or loosening of the spikes caused by the movement of the speaker.
Please see below for some examples of the Cable Management system.
As the solid oak within the Podium Slimline is not thick enough to house the metalwork of the cable management system, we unfortunately can’t install the system on this rack. If you need a rack that offers cable management, please refer to our Omnium8, Omnium8 XL, Podium Reference and Podium XL racks.
To work out the usable depth of the Podium Platform, 20mm is deducted from the depth specified.
Whilst your product will come with a satin finish as standard, we can provide a gloss finish at no extra charge if you contact us at email@example.com or +44 1572 756 447.
The cost of the timber is based on the size and availability of the tree. For example, an oak tree is large and plentiful, whereas other woods like cherry and walnut come from smaller trees and are less plentiful. As we only use solid hardwoods, we always price our products in line with the latest market cost of the raw materials we use.
You can use shoe spikes (floor protectors) to protect wooden flooring from the spikes on the base tier of your rack. Shoe spikes will be included with your order if you choose racks from our Podium Reference range, or our Grand Stand range if you are ordering from our exclusive stockists. Currently, our Podium Slimline range doesn't include floor protectors. However, you can add these to your order at a small additional cost. You'll find them on our Accessories page.
We recommend that any rack 1200mm wide and over should have a fifth leg to ensure adequate support across the width of each tier.
Castors enable you to move your rack around easily on both hardwood floors and carpets alike, which is perfect for larger racks with heavy components. These are available to purchase separately on our Accessories page.
Unfortunately if you require castors on your hi-fi or AV rack this will need to be specified and ordered at the time of purchase. We are unable to fit castors at a later date.
