Industrial Racking Guide - Versatile Storage Solution

Industrial shelving can meet a multitude of needs when dealing with the diverse storage requirements of a warehouse. Whilst shelving is most suitable for slower moving items, small parts assemblies and carefully selected orders, shelving is a cost effective way to optimize your storage, resulting in faster inventory access and turnaround. Less labor means valuable cost savings in economical and customizable packaging. In addition, your industrial shelving is compatible with automated picking equipment, just like other static shelving options.

The best part of industrial shelving is the modular design that allows you to customize each unit individually, with relatively easy installation and a lower overall cost compared to storage racks. To design your system efficiently, you will need to refer to the detailed information.

What is industrial shelving?

Industrial shelving is a versatile storage solution used in a variety of environments, including retail stores, offices and warehouses. Industrial shelving offers easily adjustable options and most units are compatible with useful accessories. It also comes in a variety of materials, styles and designs to suit different product types, warehouse layouts and budgets.

Over the years, industrial shelving has evolved and now almost all units are made of metal or steel. What hasn't changed is the functionality, as metal shelving has been used to increase visibility and maximize space within warehouses and factories. Durable and sturdy metal shelving helps you maximize floor and vertical space while improving visibility and accessibility.

Main advantages of heavy-duty industrial shelving

Wide range of uses

With heavy-duty industrial shelving, you can choose the material you need based on your needs, budget and product. Options include metal, wire decking.

Metal shelving will withstand humidity, water and roughness. What's more, this structure can also mitigate fire problems. Likewise, wire decking is another alternative that can withstand humidity, water and roughness. It is especially suitable for bulky items that will not be affected by holes.


Heavy-duty industrial shelving is designed to allow access to stored goods from both sides and ends of the shelves. This model is critical for companies seeking to increase employee productivity by reducing the time wasted retrieving products from storage.

Subsequently, the shelving allows for better use of forklifts and the performance of critical warehouse operations such as scheduling, transferring and secure storage. Likewise, fixtures make the best use of space, thereby improving organization.

Customizable Heavy Duty Industrial Shelving

Heavy-duty industrial shelving is not one-size-fits-all. That's what makes customization such an important factor when considering storage solutions. Industrial shelving can be customized to fit the height and product needs of your warehouse. In addition, the layout can be customized to maximize security and protect fragile goods that may require special attention.

Space Optimization

Heavy-duty industrial shelving is great for saving space. Certain builds allow you and your team to utilize vertical space for storage, rather than floor space. Without vertical storage, you will need more floor space to ensure all products fit.

In addition, heavy-duty industrial shelving creates space for you to organize and store products vertically and easily take them down when you need them. This solution not only saves storage space, it also saves a lot of money.


Large-scale storage of products of different weights requires the weight capacity and robustness of heavy-duty industrial shelving. The use of all available space is optimized because the shelving infrastructure opens up the space. For example, double-decker shelving can reach the ceiling, thus maximizing storage capacity. With superior design and construction, these racks are safe commercial investments that are sure to last a relatively long time.
