There are several factors that need to be considered when planning for an industrial storage system. These factors include:

  • Shelf height
  • Durability
  • Weight limit
  • Materials to be stored

There are other factors to consider, such as price and installation. The best type of industrial storage shelving are industrial steel shelves. Western Pacific Storage Solutions engineers industrial steel shelving that can be customized to meet the storage needs.

Shelf Height

Our steel shelves are designed to grow with the warehouse. Our design and engineering team can custom develop a system to meet individual warehouse needs. All WPSS shelving systems are custom engineered and professionally installed. The precise height and width of the shelves can be customized when consulting with our engineers before the shelves are manufactured.


Our steel shelves manufacturers use high-quality stainless steel for better durability. We use 3 different posts to build our industrial steel shelves. Angle posts and delta posts are heavy-gauge steel. We have 6 different shelf types, also from heavy gauge steel. We offer multi-level options for our storage systems that meet OSHA and IBC standards. Our SureSTEP line comes with stairs, handrails and gates, and deckover options. We secure our industrial storage shelving with clip shelving.

Weight Limit

How much weight can the warehouse’s current storage system hold? Standard storage shelves can hold hundreds of pounds. Since our industrial steel shelves are made with steel, they can hold more weight, allowing warehouses to store more goods and take up less space.

Materials to be Stored

Industrial storage shelves are designed for long-term storage. Warehouses can store various sizes of inventories and equipment. Our steel shelves are perfect for any materials that may need to be stored. They can be spaced apart to hold big or small boxes, large containers, and loose items like cleaning supplies and other inventory.


One important aspect of finding the right industrial storage system is the price. Buying one of WPSS’s industrial steel shelves is a worthwhile investment. Our steel shelves are built to last, and take a beating.

When investing in an industrial storage shelving system, the warehouse is investing in the future. Instead of being forced to expand outward, shelving can expand upward. Industrial steel shelves saving money and giving space!
