The Secret of Long span shelving


Long span shelving

Long span shelving, also known as wide span shelving is one of the most efficient storage systems and a very useful asset which most businesses prefer to have for their storage space. This is a distinctive shelving system that provides an optimal solution for high density storage of small parts with light or medium loads. Long span shelving is perfect for any type or size of merchandise and never takes up most of the floor space. As a result, long span shelving is known as the most optimal choice for retail and industrial houses with space constraints. Installing these long span shelves is simple and does not require expert support.


A unique storage system that is designed for small to medium sized items is the Long Span Shelf. This is a rugged, hard-wearing long-span shelving structure that can be used in a wide range of shelf lengths, widths and heights. In addition, it is designed with four side steel beams to support any material. Our sturdy long-span shelving allows materials to be accessed and retrieved from all four sides. It will definitely improve the efficiency of your warehouse or workspace by using it.


Spieth's long-span shelving system is designed to provide a cost-effective storage system with rigid connections that provide reliable support for shelf decks. It consists of materials such as mesh, steel or particle board. Long span shelving is available in different sizes, shapes, and designs that you can customize based on storage space or product type. Contemporary long-span shelving has a boltless locking system that holds the support beams in place. Its installation is simple, with no nuts and bolts required for installation. Its lighter shelving system is ideal for small to moderate sized items. Compared to the old bolt system, the new long-span shelving is durable and safe for employees. It is also a useful solution that is specifically designed to minimize any wasted storage space.
