Mar 13, 2008
Used commercial shelving offers the immediate, tangible benefit of savings that approximate 20% on the average in comparison to new equipment procurement costs. Pricing can be even lower based upon current availability. As a nationwide distributor and installer of used commercial shelves, many companies often have access to surpluses or can arrange for special installation based upon geographic area and client facility. These factors can sometimes generate additional discounts on a case-by-case basis.

Used commercial shelving consists of either metal or a metal/wood material blend and comes in either open backed or close backed units. Key components such as angle corner braces, shelf reinforcements, end sheets, posts, and back braces all play critical roles in determining storage and weight capacity.

Used & New Open-Back Shelving Units

Generally made from lighter gauge materials, open commercial shelves are used for both warehouse and office storage. Weight capacities for our many models average around 450-500 pounds. Open-back commercial shelves are great horizontal space savers, as they tend to be taller than they are wide.

For heavier storage capacities, or for environments where horizontal space conservation is less of an issue, you might want to consider using long span shelving. Based on open-backed design, wide span commercial shelves normally feature wood-decked shelves reinforced by metal supports and support weight capacities of up to 2,000 pounds. The heavy-duty models are ideal storing equipment and heavy containers in warehouses.

Lighter gauge wide-span shelving make for excellent document storage in office environments. Many auto repair shops with a small office adjacent to the service center will use a Wide span to keep parts catalogs and invoice records close at hand behind the desk. They also make excellent storage areas for hard copy data and larger items such as bankers' boxes.

Closed-Back Shelving Units

Closed back commercial shelving units are often used like cabinets because backs and sides provide additional support and added stability. Obviously, they offer superior storage capacity than cabinets both because of their metallic construction and the dimensions of their individual compartments. They can also be folded together to protect sensitive materials such as chemicals and certain forms of paint.

18 gauge models are available with 5, 6, and 7 shelf builds. Heavier, 20 gauge units are also available with 8, 9, and 10 shelves per unit. For specific details visit our industrial shelving section for dimensions, weight capacities, and more suggestions for use.
