Industrial Steel Shelving

Industrial steel shelving is used in a broad range of commercial, warehousing, construction, retail, food service and home applications. Steel shelving is lightweight, easy to install, and can be placed up against walls to take up less space. Adjustable shelves make the storage of products fast and simple.  


East Coast Rack carries a large variety of new and used industrial steel shelving. Used shelving can help reduce your cost by using quality material in good working condition. We carry all kinds of styles from open, closed, clip style steel shelving, nut and bolt style steel shelving and more. With nut and bolt steel shelving, the shelves are simply bolted to the posts, whereas with clip style steel shelving, the shelves are attached with small metal clips. This makes it extremely easy for the individual shelves to be moved to any height when the unit is fully assembled without taking apart the unit or moving the other shelves. The two most standard styles of industrial steel shelving are open and closed. The open style does not have sides, which allows for greater visibility, storage of products in various shapes and sizes, and in some cases, product picking from both sides. The closed style has side and back panels, which can keep certain products better contained and more secure.


One thing to remember, not all post diameters and shelf widths in use are the same. The wide variety of metal clips are not always interchangeable among manufacturers. Many use proprietary designs that do not fit with the systems of other makers. This variance tends to make it difficult to mix and match various brands of steel shelving.
