Wire shelving is used in food service, retail, and general storage. Our units have capacity ranging from 150 pounds per shelf to 800 pounds per shelf.

Open Type Shelving

Open type shelving is the basic and most economical shelving design for general purpose use. Backs and sides are open with the exception of side and rear stability braces. Standard color for most steel shelving is gray. Many types offer stater and adder configurations whereby a run of 20 shelving units is one starter unit and 19 adder units. Many dealers obsess on steel gauge. We suggest looking into shelf capacity rather than shelf thickness. Money can be saved by ordering a lighter shelf with additional welded bends , which increases capacity. A 22 GA boxer shelf has a better capacity than standard 20 GA shelving – which is thicker than 22 GA steel shelving. Posts can be offset angle as well as box type. Box type posts allow more access to your individual shelves.  We stock shelves by Penco, Lyons, Edsal, Republic and many others. Another popular type is rivet type, which assembled with only a rubber mallet.

Rivet Shelving

Rivet Shelving, also known as Rivet rack, wide span rack, double rivet shelving, double rivet boltless shelving, speedibilt or rivet shelving is becoming a very popular type of shelving or rack style. The benefits are manifest. Rivet shelving offers spans of up to 8 feet wide and depths of up to 4 feet deep. Capacities run to over 2000 pounds per level in some cases. Assembly is simple. The shelf components are put in place with the use of a rubber mallet. No nut and bolts or shelf clips required! Our rivet shelving is available with wire decking – for compliance with local fire codes where applicable , with pre cut particle board – for convenience, with steel decking – for capacity and finally – with no decking at all – for economy.

So, why should you consider shelving at all? The answer is clear to this question. A thriving business is always growing.
