For industrial and wholesale warehouse facilities in need of a heavy duty storage solution, boltless steel shelving is ideal.

This type of shelving, also known as rivet shelving or originally called RiveTier shelving, is able to be assembled easily by professionals and can be reconfigured without the need for nuts or bolts, hence the name boltless shelving.

The benefits of boltless industrial shelving include durability, ease of configurations, and versatility. These attributes make them an excellent solution for a wide range of facilities. The shelving is available in a range of capacities, from standard to heavy duty to match the needs of the facility.

Advantages include:

  • Hardware is not required for assembly
  • Available in a variety of sizes and shelf capacities
  • Customizable to match the needs of your facility

Shelf design
Boltless steel shelving is made with solid steel, and comes in a range of types. The options for decking include particleboard for standard duty systems as well as wire decking. The benefits of wire decking are increased air circulation and the ability for dirt and dust to fall through the deck, rather than accumulate on each deck. This can simplify and speed up cleaning. In case of a fire, the wire decking allows the ceiling mounted sprinkler system greater access to lower shelves.

Ease of assembly
Boltless shelving is available as a complete kit system as well as available in individual components for building custom systems. The system offers the ideal combination of high strength and adaptability to meet the needs of any facility.

Boltless industrial shelving is different from the traditional type of shelving system. The system uses uprights which attach to other components to form a frame. Decking is then laid on this frame, using either solid board or wire, depending on the needs of the facility. This frame and deck system means the boltless rack uses less material than traditional steel shelving, which in turn helps to keep costs lower.

The system is highly adjustable, enabling a variety of deck or shelf heights to meet the needs of items being stored. The adjustability of the system makes it relatively simple to reconfigure the shelving as your storage needs change.

The availability of individual components for the system allows for further customization, resulting in a system that adapts to the particular needs of each facility, making this an ideal solution for a wide range of storage needs.
