How to Choose a Warehouse Shelving System
When determining the type of shelving system your warehouse facility needs, it is important to first consider what type of product you are storing. Used shelving is typically used for individual items or boxes, whereas pallet racks are used for products loaded onto pallets. Used shelving comes in many different styles, including enclosed, nut and bolt, modular, wire, clip, and record storage. ASI offers all of it used at discounted prices, and we have a huge selection from which to choose.
Used steel shelving should be considered for storing heavy inventory items because they have the highest weight capacity and the shelf heights are adjustable to accommodate different product sizes. Steel shelving comes in different styles, including open or closed, and clip style or nut and bolt. Open style used shelving allows for product visibility, which makes inventory spot checking very quick and efficient.
Closed style used shelving protects products from falling off shelves and is great for keeping small parts organized and separated. Doors can be added to shelving for added security as well as additional features, including dividers and shelf boxes. In addition to side walls, we also offer back walls for the shelving so that two rows can be placed back to back. This helps save on aisle space, making storage denser.
Used Shelving Assembly
The two ways that used shelving is typically assembled is nut and bolt, and clip. Used nut and bolt shelving is the most secure; it takes longer to install than used clip shelving, but also has a higher weight capacity. Used clip shelving uses clips to secure each shelf to the uprights, which is still very sturdy, but not as sturdy as nut and bolt. Clip shelving is easy to install and can be done so very quickly.
