Warehouse Shelving Systems
Stack and store your inventory on the classic storage system: shelving. Industrial shop shelving systems come in a variety of designs and store a variety of materials. Industrial shelving, rivet shelving, and wide span stores standard products and boxes while bin shelving, modular drawer, and tire rack stores parts and tools. There's also mobile aisle shelving available for high density storage.

New and Used Shelving FAQs
Q. What are the most common types of industrial shelving?
A. Boltless, metal industrial, and widespan are the most common types of shelving that you will see in a commercial or industrial setting. Warehouse1 can help guide you to the best selection based on your needs.
Q. How do I choose the right system?
A. Boltless shelving, also referred to as rivet shelving, is assembled without using any screws or nuts and bolts. It is generally sold with a particle board or wire decking as the shelf level and is configured with both sides open, allowing the user to access material from either side.
Metal industrial shelving, also called clip shelving, can be configured with closed metal backs and sides or as an open concept. Open shelving requires metal sway bracing on the back side to stabilize the unit so users can only pick from one side. In many cases, this type is configured in back to back runs.
Widespan shelving can be described as a lightweight version of pallet rack but meant for hand stacking material. This type is generally sold with a wood or wire decking shelf level.
Q. What are the most common sizes?
A. The most common height of shelving sold is 6’ to 10’. Some customers choose to go even taller and pick material using a rolling stock ladder or an upper catwalk system. The most popular widths of boltless and metal types range from 36” to 48” and widespan is 72” to 96”. Common depths are 12” to 24” and for widespan are 24” to 48”.
Q. What is mobile aisle shelving?
A. Mobile aisle, like its name implies, is a shelving that is mounted onto a track system. The shelving can be cranked out or in to allow for dense storage in a small space. This type of system is excellent for file or small parts warehouse storage needs.
