When determining if and what type of shelving system your warehouse facility needs, it is important to first consider what type of product you are storing. Used industrial shelving is typically used for individual items or boxes, whereas pallet rack is used for products loaded onto pallets. Used shelving comes in many different styles, including enclosed, nut and bolt, modular, wire, clip, record storage, and more. ASI offers all of it used at discounted prices, and we have a huge selection to choose from.

For storing heavy inventory items, used steel shelving should be considered. This style has the highest weight capacity of steel shelving, and the shelf heights are adjustable to accommodate different product sizes. Used 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.

Used shelving- closed style protects product from falling out of the shelves, and is great for keeping small parts organized and separated. Doors can be added to shelving for added security, and additional features include dividers and shelf boxes. In addition to side walls, there are also back walls to used closed shelving, so two rows can be placed back to back. This helps save on aisles, making storage more dense.

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.

There are a lot of options to choose from when purchasing used shelving for your material handling facility. ASI’s dedicated sales team will work with you to determine the right style of shelving system for your specific needs. We always have an abundance in stock, and quantity discounts are available when buying in bulk.
