I need the worlds longest wall mounted pot rack/bar

I need something to hang all my pots, pans, strainers, colanders etc.

I am hoping to get something 4 feet long, that can mount to a wall, and hang a bunch of hooks to hang my pans etc.

I am thinking like a stainless rail.

Anyone ever seen anything this big, if so where and made by which company?

  1. You didn't say where you're located but you'll find what you seek at a restaurant supply store.

    You can also find styles that have a top shelf for extra storage:

      Ohh goodness! You have taken it to a new level. Thank you!
      With a shelf, i can get away with maybe 3'.

      Have you ever seen/touched these units? IE: Is the quality there?

      And i am not in the US, so internet based stores are my best option.

        If you are anywhere an Ikea, they have multi purpose bars with hooks available on the cheap. Although 4 ft were available, I used two three ft as that gave me more mounting points. Pots are heavy, and 4 ft would tend to bow.

          Good quality commercial stuff is quite nice -- remember most people in commercial kitchens are less than well paid, and they don't have to pay to fix it. There's also junk, though. And price isn't always an indicator. I'd hesitate to buy something without either being able to touch it, or previous experience with the particular item.

          You don't say where you are, but there are probably restaurants there. Storage is tight in commercial kitchens everywhere, so this sort of stuff is available anywhere. You just have to figure out where to look, or who to ask. Also, a lot of this stuff (even in the US) is fabricated for a particular customer, so don't over look finding someone to fabricate it for you.

          Yep...commercial stuff opens new doors.

          What the OP is looking for is not uncommon at all.

          And yes...the quality is there. Stuff like this is made for daily use by people who don't give a shit about breaking other people's stuff. Way overbuilt for home use...I like over built.

        3. Consider something you can hang from above if at all possible. Or make sure you're super-straight about the bracing needed for a wall mount.

            The ceiling is not sturdy, but the walls are solid concrete. Strange house, i am not in the US.

          2. I have this ClosetMaid system of wire shelving hanging the kitchen.


            I screwed a hanging track to wall framing just under the ceiling, hung vertical tracks from that, with wire shelves mounted on those. Pots hang from hooks under the lowest shelf. By using a shelf rather than a simple bar I can hang the pots two deep.

            Since the only thing is permanent is the hanging bar at the top, I can easily remove the shelves if needed (e.g. to move the fridge), or rearrange them.

            Even though this particular system is not available to you, it might give you ideas.

              I think i am just going to get a commercial single rail and drill into the concrete nice and deep.

              Thanks to all for their help and suggestions, i guess i need to look further afield than amazon for my goods.

                Hi, Sneef:

                Another thing for your consideration: If you have the ceiling height and support, an old-style butcher's rail and rolling hooks can be a classy abatoir-like touch. 4 feet isn't a long length, but you'd still get the same effect.


            2. If you're really committed, you can get one custom made for you by Enclume.

              Pre-remodel, I had one of their racks and they're top notch. They customize but I can't imagine it being inexpensive.


              1. How about a rack modeled on bamboo scaffolding?
