Shelving Racks and Rack Shelving

Sep 10, 2008
Rack Shelving converts floor space, walls, and portions of the vertical cube into organized storage space. Shelving racks are made from the highest commercial grade steel and are available in all sizes and industrial strengths. New and used models are available in open shelf racking, closed back racks, and wide span rack shelving. Shelving racks are often connected together either side by side or one on top of the other. This is made possible with adjustable clips that connect units together. It is not uncommon to see several open backed units connected side by side and used to store paperwork and company files. Closed backed units can be connected one on top of the other in a "box shelving" configuration that can hold up to 2,000 pounds of weight. Standard dimensions are available for all shelving rack designs, and custom units can be manufactured per special request.

The durability of rack shelving is unmatched in the material handling industry. Each unit, regardless of build or weight capacity, is coated with two layers of protection prior to being drop shipped to its destination. Iron phosphate forms the first protective layer and works to prevent oxidation from salt air and airborne industrial pollutants. The second protective layer consists of baked on enamel painted onto the steel racking that helps reduce dents and warping during use and accidental impacts. These two protective layers work together to minimize stress on shelving racks anytime they are exposed to the open air and experience a sudden rise or fall in temperature.

The commercial grade quality of these materials ranks among the highest in the industry. Because the bay doors and loading docks of many facilities are often open to the outdoors--and therefore exposed to extremes in heat and cold in many parts of the country--Easy Rack shelves are designed not only with the highest commercial grade rack, but also the highest commercial grade metal protectors to make sure your material storage units withstand the elements over the course of many years of use and extended exposure to climate variations.

Two of our most popular and effective rack shelving options are industrial metal warehouse shelves and long span and wide-span warehouse shelving, also known as Rivet Rack Shelves.

Industrial Rack Warehouse Shelving

Warehouse shelving racks are frequently stacked on top of each other and bolted together to create boxed shelving systems. Such systems can easily hold up to 2,000 pounds of material.

Warehouse shelves can be ordered in either open-backed versions or close-back versions. Open-back units give employees convenient access to materials from all four sides. Closed back units act like cabinets that can either be stood against the wall or shut tight and locked up after hours.

Long-Span Shelving Racks

Long span shelving racks are designed to stand to the side of a room or warehouse and convert horizontal and vertical wall space into storage shelving. These wide span units can be linked end-to end to cover the entire wall of a large facility, or they can be used as stand-alone units behind counters in retail service centers, parts stores, and hardware stores.

Widespan units are made from 24-guage steel shelving supported by steel beams built around a two-piece design. This increases the shelving rack's center of gravity and allows it to evenly distribute loads that weigh up to 35,000 pounds.
