A Buyer’s Guide to Industrial Shelving

Industrial shelving

Whether you operate a warehouse, an office or an industrial storage space, heavy-duty industrial shelving units are the basic building blocks for any professional storage solution. If you’ve recently opened a warehouse or are looking to implement a storage system for your office, both the variety of choice in the market and the daunting task of setting up your shelves can seem like a headache. But it doesn’t have to be!

In this blog post, we’ll take you through some helpful notes when shopping for industrial shelving units and implementing a storage solution at your workplace, as well as highlight a few of Stockspace’s bestselling industrial shelving units. Industrial shelving doesn’t have to be scary!

Types of Industrial Shelving

There are three basic types of industrial shelving that are commonly manufactured:

  1. Rivet shelving
  2. Wire shelving
  3. Steel shelving

Here at Stockspace, we sell the last kind of industrial shelving: steel shelving. Steel shelving is considered the best type for high-density storage due to its durable nature. However, many people choose rivet or wire shelving because steel shelving can be tricky or a hassle to install. Luckily, Stockspace industrial shelving units have all the benefits of steel shelving with the added benefit of easy installation! Read on for more info.

Below are a few notes about our range of heavy-duty industrial steel shelving options…

Built Tough for Warehouse and Industry Use

One of the main things to look for in industrial shelving is the weight capacity and materials. Our industrial shelving units are built with premium steel, making them a perfect solution for high-density applications such as tools, equipment and parts storage. Stockspace’s industrial shelving units are equipped to bear up to 200kg per shelf with high quality reinforced steel hat rails.

Our products are built tough and designed to meet a variety of personal, commercial and industrial storage needs. Stockspace’s range of high-quality industrial shelving units and warehouse storage solutions not only complies with the Australian Shelving Safe Shelving Standards, it exceeds them.

Clean & Polished Finish

Many kinds of industrial shelving can look out of place in a professional office – Stockspace’s industrial shelves are different. In addition to focusing on durability and performance, we take into account the aesthetics our shelves present.

We prioritise durability and quality in all of our industrial shelving units. Stockspace’s high quality and durable industrial shelving units are perfect for commercial use in warehouses and offices due to their clean and polished finished look. All Stockspace industrial shelving units are finished with powder-coated beams and uprights.

Permanent Installation

Many steel shelves on the market today require lengthy and involved installation. Clips, braces, hardware and more can make the seemingly simple process of setting up a shelving unit overcomplicated and stressful. Here at Stockspace, our priority lies with the end user which is why we take the installation process into consideration with all of our shelving units – from industrial shelving to garage storage.

The best part about these shelving units is the super easy assembly. In addition to being designed for durability and strength, our industrial shelving units can be bolted to the ground for permanent installation – making them a stable, secure and safe storage solution.

This aspect is especially important in a working environment. Many industrial shelving units do not allow for permanent installation or cannot be bolted to the ground. This can easily lead to workplace accidents and even injuries since the shelving units have the potential to tip over.

The smart lock-in system on these industrial shelving units allows for easy assembly using a 17 mm spanner. Our industrial shelving units can also be installed as is for a more temporary warehouse or office storage solution.

Extendable Storage Solutions

Another great aspect about our industrial shelving units is that they can grow and adapt as your organisational needs change. If you find that your organisation is growing, you’re moving into a larger warehouse space, or if you have additional stock that needs storing, simply purchase multiple industrial storage racks to meet your vast storage needs. These industrial shelving units can be extended by adding extra levels or set up a dynamic storage system by purchasing multiples of these heavy-duty industrial shelving units. You can also purchase individual shelves to make your industrial shelving units taller.

Not only are our industrial shelving units super high quality and durable, they can also be arranged and constructed into custom layouts. The extendable nature of our industrial shelves allows you to create a variety of shelving configurations with a seamless aesthetic and function.
