New and Used Industrial Shelving
Organize and store your hand-loaded, non-palletized inventory. Industrial shelving, also called warehouse shelving, metal industrial shelving and steel industrial shelving, is a versatile storage system that accepts materials of a variety of shapes and sizes. When assessing the types of industrial shelving systems to use, consider the size and weight of the inventory being stored, as well as your desired degree of accessibility to products.
Open Shelving: Open Shelving is generally made steel between the gauges of 18 to 22. This shelving allows for high visibility and makes it easy to hand pick inventory. It also helps with organization and categorization especially with parts storage.
Closed Shelving: Closed shelving is ideal for the storage of items that you don’t want contaminated by dust or light. It also reduces visibility in environments where you may not want your inventory in plain sight.
