Shelving System Growth
Calculating Post Height
First calculate the center-to-center spacing
1. Determine the minimum clear vertical opening required per shelf.
2. Add 1-1/4″ (shelf profile) and round up to the nearest 1-1/2″ increment.
Calculate the minimum post height:
3. multiply the center-to-center distance by the required number of shelf openings.
4. Add 4″ for the bottom shelf openings plus the profile of the first shelf. If you wish to bolt the first shelf closer to the ground, and either 2-1/2″ or 1″.
Example Show (7 Shelves / 6 Shelf Openings)
If the minimum clear vertical opening is = 11-3/4″
Then the center-to-center spacing is = 13-1/2″
If 6 shelf opening are required the total post height is (13-1/2″ x 6) + 4″ = 85
