Shelf Types Of Open Span Shelving 

Open Span Shelving Systems - Particle Board Shelves

Particle Board Shelves

This is the most common type of shelves for an Open Span (Long Span) unit. Its suitable for a range of uses in your warehouse or workshop.

Steel Shelf Panels

These shelf inserts are ideal in a warehouse environment where the products being stored on the shelving won't suit particle board, an example is the storage of liquid containers. The thickness of the Steel Shelf Panel is 0.8mm.

Wire Shelf Panels

These wire shelf panel inserts are a great alternative to particle board as the mesh is stronger, more durable, cleaner and safer.

Features Of Open Span Shelving

Easy Assembly

We provide the warehouse shelving units with the end frames assembled. This means that all you have to do is slot the horizontal beams into the upright frames and clip in place with the retaining pins, then place the chosen shelf type into the recess of the beams on each shelf level.

Upright Frames

Upright frames are supplied pre-assembled for ease of installation. That way we are providing an industrial storage solution that is predominately bolt-less and simple to put together. The heights of the frames that we offer are 900mm, 2000mm, 2500mm and 3000mm. Our range will provide a solution to suit the available space for a long span storage unit.

Open Span Shelving - Two Tone Grey Coating

Two-Tone Grey Coating

The two-tone grey powder coat finish is aesthetically pleasing in any environment. The shelving units can be used in a variety of environments from offices, schools to workshops and warehouses. Given that the nature of the product is heavy duty shelving they do have a high load capacity per shelf level.

Cross Beams

Cross beams are recessed to facilitate flush fitting of shelf panels. Beam retaining pins are fitted to ensure the cross beams cannot be accidentally dislodged.
The shelf panel inserts can be either 18mm particle board, mesh shelf panels or steel shelf panels.
