Plate racks hire for busy catering events

January 21, 2016

When professional caters are providing their catering service for temporary, large events such as weddings, Christmas party nights and corporate luncheons, for example, one of the key elements to hire are plate racks, also known in the trade as jackstacks.

Plates containing food can be positioned onto jackstacks, with the aim of either easy access for the waiting staff or transporting it from the kitchen to the dining area, ready for table service.  Jackstacks can hold in the region of 80 plates of food, and are on castors and so fully mobile and easily wheeled between destinations within the venue that you are catering.

Plate Racks Hire For Busy Catering Events

Many caterers will choose to prepare the course of food that sometimes don’t need to be warm, and store them for a short period of time on jackstacks, ready for service, so starters such as terrines, pates and so on, and likewise desserts such as cheesecake slices, for example, all of which can be stored in a cool place on plate racking and then wheeled out into position when the time is right.

At Event Hire UK, we offer 84-plate platemates for hire as well as jackstacks, both of which fulfil a similar role in a catering environment.  These are available in the quantities that you need, with us having an extensive stock on offer, although it’s always a good idea to get these on order sooner rather than later as they do get booked up in the peak periods of the year such as in the summer months and at Christmas.
