Wire Shelving will fit almost any storage project. Contact welds hold the metal wire rungs into the truss-reinforced frame, making it a surprisingly strong storage option. A few benefits of wire shelving are that it:
  • promotes ventilation
  • allows light to penetrate layers of storage
  • and doesn't accumulate dust

Rivet Shelving excels at heavy duty storage. You can choose single rivet or double rivet storage, which are for lite and heavy duty respectively. The riveted beams fit into slots along the post and lock into place. The more weight, the better the hold. Some benefits are:

  • optional wire decking complies with fire code, reducing insurance rates
  • can be configured to suit your storage needs, no tools required
  • and it can be reinforced with center supports to hold even more weight

Clipper Shelving won't hold as much as the other options, but is an economical option for storage. Units can be open on all sides (supported by sway braces) or enclosed on three sides with the option of putting a locking door, creating a sort of storage cabinet.

  • small clips fit into slotted posts to support shelves
  • shelves are roll formed steel with reinforced flanges for additional support
  • can be outfitted with bins, dividers, locking doors, and protective base plates
