You will have more control of the local mesh. Then for the transition with the entire model, just apply a size funtion with created volume as source. For the other problem, are the 2 volumes connected? (at tthe interface between the volumes, do you have 1 or 2 surfaces?) Hope it helps

A transition of cell size wil be desired between the outer surfaces of the volume (set as source in the Size Function)and the average cell size of the domain. In fact you will have: your rack (smallest cell size), transition to cell size#1 in your volume, then transition to cell size#2 in your domain.
