The SmartRack® - Product overview

From Accessories to Holder for wash bottles– everything from a single source and always the first choice

The SmartRack® was designed by scientists and laboratory users, because the Better Basics team knows the special processes in laboratories and has developed the SmartRack® and its modules in cooperation with various laboratory users. A wide variety of module configurations are available to meet your individual requirements. Whether you work in the field of chemistry, biology, biochemistry, food chemistry, pharmacy or medicine, the SmartRack® represents the innovative standard for every modern laboratory workstation and should form part of the basic equipment of every laboratory. With us, you can choose from over 100 holders or modules for organizing your laboratory workstation, which you can combine as required in our SmartRack® .

The integrated click system - the optimal solution for safety and efficiency

Better Basics Laborbedarf SmartRack Click System mit haptischem Feedback

All SmartRack® modules, that can be clicked directly in slot rails, have an integrated click system with which users receive haptic feedback when positioning the mounting modules within the slot rail. Since all mounting modules can be freely positioned within a slot rail, you have complete freedom of arrangement – depending on the needs of your work. Once clicked into place, the SmartRack® modules remain securely in the SmartRack® frame, even when the slot rail is moved to another usage level. In this way you protect yourself and your work from sample loss or accidents at work.

02101 SmartRack Modul SmartCase

The SmartCase is designed to transport and store the SmartRack®, a modular a modular organization system for laboratory workstations. Its aluminum case safely protects a SmartRack® inside and its contents from light and other environmental influences.

The SmartCase consists of a lower part with four castors into which a SmartRack® can be placed. The upper part of the SmartCase has a cushion on the inside, which serves to fix the SmartRack® in the SmartCase as soon as the SmartCase is closed by the tension locks.

This prevents the SmartRack® from slipping or tipping over. The SmartCase has a self-acting valve system which can be used to change the atmosphere inside the SmartCase by means of an external gas supply.

This allows, for example, the temporary generation of a low-oxygen atmosphere in the SmartCase, which creates an additional safety level when transporting oxygen-sensitive, highly flammable substances or substances that spontaneously ignite in air. For further information on the durability of the atmosphere exchange in the SmartCase, please contact us at contact@better-basics.de.

The SmartCase includes the following components:

  • A bottom section with four casters, four tension locks and an automatic gas outlet valve system.
  • A top part with a handle, four put-on aids and an automatic gas inlet valve system
  • A connector for connecting gas hoses of various diameters to the SmartCase
