Used enclosed shelving is a style of steel industrial shelving that has side panels and back panels. This style typically uses nuts and bolts to assemble, and this allows for multiple rows to be secured together side by side. When multiple units are placed side by side, only one side panel is required between them. This greatly saves on material costs, because for every 2 rows that are side by side, you save one side panel. (click here to view entire article)
Some additional options that are common to used enclosed shelving is doors, dividers, shelf boxes, and label holders. Doors are a cost effective solution to transforming this style of shelving into secure storage cabinets. Dividers can be used to divide up individual rows for organized storage of small parts, and the row heights can be adjusted for even more customization. Shelf boxes are also very useful for storing small parts because it keeps them organized and accessible, and label holders are great for labeling exactly what is in each shelf.
Why buy used enclosed shelving?. The most obvious reason for choosing to buy used over new is the simple fact that it saves you money. With cost savings, many are skeptical as to whether or not they are getting the same quality. At American Surplus, we only provide good quality used equipment.
