About

The Flip Tray is a product that will help benefit the operations of any restaurant, bar, hotel catering event or cruise ship in which it may be implemented. The ingenious design and simplicity of the product allows for the safe and effective transport of clean glassware across any dining room, hallway, kitchen, dance floor or ballroom with ease. 

One of the most creative and innovative features of the Flip Tray are the magnetic locks affixed to either side of the product. These magnetic locks are used when the Flip Tray is placed over the top of the clean glass rack. Once the locks are secured the user is able to flip the glass rack allowing for the safe transfer of the glassware from the glass rack to the Flip Tray. Once the locks are released and the glass rack is removed transporting the glassware is as easy as carrying a tray. 

 How it works

The subtle black design of the Flip Tray offers an elegant alternative for transporting glassware around the facility. Rather than lugging around a glass rack, the Flip Tray offers a less obtrusive lightweight  alternative to the outdated look of glass racks. 

The anti-slip silicone mat at the bottom of the Flip Tray ensures that the glasses remain in a safe and orderly fashion while being transported. If the person carrying the Flip Tray is jostled or needs to slightly tilt the tray when in transit the silicone grip will ensure that the glasses will not slide. 

Once the glasses arrive to their destination the person tasked with removing them from the Flip Tray can remove them faster and more efficiently than a traditional glass rack. An old glass rack requires the time consuming task of reaching into numerous small chambers to retrieve the glassware individually. The Flip Tray allows the user to pick up multiple glasses at once and use both hands to retrieve them making it a more efficient and less time consuming task. 

The Flip Tray is also a safer product. The design of the Flip Tray lets the user inspect the glassware before it arrives to its destination.  This allows them to verify the cleanliness and sterility of the glassware while ensuring that there are no chips or breakage before transport. The Flip Tray also eliminates the necessity for someone to reach blindly into one of the chambers of a glass rack where broken glass could be hidden from sight. 

I believe the Flip Tray is a product that could be integrated into any service establishment and have an instantaneous impact on the quality, efficiency and safety of service. 


Save time, maximise productivity and most importantly stay safe ...

Production and Material 

Flip Tray is made trough injection molding process with (ABS) Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene.

Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) is a terpolymer consisting of acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. The usual ratio of materials is 50% styrene and 25% each of acrylonitrile and butadiene. The resulting polymer is comprised of a long chain of polybutadiene crossed with short chains of polystyrene-co-acrylonitrile. The short chains containing the nitrile monomers bond together, making it stronger than polystyrene. Styrene gives the plastic a hard, shiny surface and butadiene, which is a rubber, makes it resilient. The most important mechanical properties of ABS are impact resistance and toughness. A variety of modifications can be made to improve impact resistance, toughness, and heat resistance. All this factors confirm long life of tray.

Bottom of the Tray

The anti-slip silicone mat at the bottom of the Flip Tray ensures that the glasses remain in a safe and orderly fashion while being transported. If the person carrying the Flip Tray is jostled or needs to slightly tilt the tray when in transit the silicone grip will ensure that the glasses will not slide.

Risks and challenges

We have developed three different models of the Flip Tray designed to be compatible with the most common types of glass racks found in restaurants.

Our next goal is to design versions of the product which are compatible with other types of glass racks like those used in hospitality industry. To achieve this we must make the present incarnation of the Flip Tray a success.

The Flip Tray will work with any type of glasses, as long as they're not protruding from the glass rack.
