The polypropylene skin gives a smooth easy wipe down surface. Because of the polypropylene encased steel core, the Plastlok system is acid and alkaline resistant.

Each Plastlok component is dishwasher safe.

Hygienic storage areas are complemented when incorporating the ‘easy cleaning’ properties that Plast-Lok provides. With Plastlok HACCP compliant operations and sterile environments are easier to gain and maintain.

Good looking & built tough.

Strong as steel

Upright frames and horizontal rails all incorporate a steel core. This provides maximum strength, rigidity and durability. Tapered post connectors that slide and clip into the vertical posts at the top and bottom give excellent diagonal rigidity.

The posts incorporate heavy duty adjustable feet to provide stability and allow for leveling of units in all applications.

The unique upright post design allows for extension bays that simply clip in and add on to initial bays.

The Plastlok shelf inserts are molded with a material that has an antimicrobial additive that inhibits the growth of mould and bacteria. This greatly reduces the risk of product degeneration.

Plastlok Rails positively locate onto post.

The rail slides down onto the tapered dovetail connection and locks firmly in place when lightly hammered down with a soft face hammer.

The Plastlok units come complete with adjustable feet to compensate for any irregularities in the floor surface.

Novalok has recently introduced Plastlok because we see this product as superior in many ways because of its special corrosion resistant coating and click together construction

This system has really significant benefits for restaurants, wholesale food merchants, commercial kitchens and residential use.

Novalok Plastlok Shelving Cleaning Assembly

Novalok Plastlok cleaning and assembly is a simple task.

There are no nuts or bolts required, so it is simply a matter of removing the plastic shelf panels, washing down the framework with CIP chemicals, or fully dismantling is an easy reversal of the assembly process, so this can be done to allow a complete clean, then reassemble.

Typically a standard Plastlok unit will take less than 5 minutes to assemble. It often takes more time to remove the product stored.

Often, the Plastlok shelf panels are all that need cleaning. They can be simply removed by hand for washing in hot water, caustic or detergent solutions without detriment to the product.
