1/4" plywood with spray on bedliner type stuff. Definitely not any laminated type finish.

What is the material OCD uses for their racks? (Not a carpenter)
I assume it's a coated wood, but if so, what's it coated with? It's a great finish.
IIRC, it has a hexagonal texture, like the attached pic.

I dont think so.  This is a common stage deck top surface.  My experience with the decks shows this to be a finished item that is laminated to the structure.

I have one here in my hands. It's spray on stuff. There are no visible seams. Also OCD has their logo routed into the top of the rack and that's all coated nicely down to the bottom of the routing.

It it absolutely not like the photo Andrew posted above. . .except that it's also black.

There we have it.  Visual deception!

Thanks, Tim!
It's called hexagrip and you can get it from Penn/Elcom in 4x8 sheets
it comes in 3/8" or 1/2" thick panels and the panel itself is a premium birch ply
I built many a case out of it in the past and it was wonderful to work with

-obviously "OCD" or whomever you are discussing can built cases out of many different materials of the customer's choosing

I used to do case-over racks with the shell made of the hexagrip and the interior rack made of 3/4" birch using the bedliner type coating or nicely stained and clear poly coated if the customer wanted

McNally Enterprises down in Anaheim is doing their ATA cases in house from the hex grip material. They are very nice. They will build for others.

Cool production house with a full carpentry and paint shop and lots of other bells and whistles in addition to AV gear.
