Different Types of Industrial Shelving Systems

If you are in the market for new industrial shelving, you may be surprised at the number of options. Along with the more standard type of steel shelves is boltless shelving, an innovative solution worth your consideration.

Shelving Options

  • RiveTier– The Z beam shelving system offered by this brand is an incredible solution. As a combination of low profile and long span, each shelf spans up to 6 feet and under certain circumstances can be designed to hold hundreds or thousands of pounds. Especially in areas where space is limited, this shelving system is ideal. Without a sway brace, access is possible from all four sides.
  • Pacific– This brand offers both open and closed steel shelves. Unlike the closed design that has a back and enclosed side panels, open shelves are accessible from all four sides. While the open design is ideal for packaged and bulkier items, closed shelving is the preferred choice for storage and containment. These industrial shelving systems make assembly and disassembly, as well as adjustments, quick and easy.
  • Deluxe– For maximizing space, many industries rely on a catwalk system. Because these steel shelves build vertically, additional levels are added to accommodate growing storage needs. This multilevel shelving system features different options for stairs, gates, handrails, and the deck over. You also have a choice between a standard and double return based on your specific requirements.
  • Industrial– This brand offers a top-of-the-line platform system, also referred to as a mezzanine in the past. The three key features include a galvanized finish, the use of high-strength 50 KSI steel, and unique flooring options. There are also several unique platform (mezzanine) designs, such as freestanding, rack or shelving-supported, and pre-engineered, each with unique characteristics and qualities.

Although there is certainly nothing wrong with traditional steel shelves, due to the many benefits provided, boltless shelving has become a popular choice for many industrial applications. As stated, this type of industrial shelving is easy to assemble and disassemble. Therefore, it can be moved to a new location. As your business grows, you may need a larger facility. Instead of purchasing all new shelving, you simply take the existing shelving system along and add on as needed to accommodate growth.
