Need Uncompromising Storage Strength? Go with Heavy Duty Metal Shelving

If you work in an industrial facility, you can't afford to skimp on your shelving. Although racks are similar to heavy duty shelving, they have different storage uses. The biggest difference between them is that heavy duty shelving is typically comprised of individual steel shelves that measure no more than 48 inches wide and 36 inches deep. This size is adequate for your typical hand-loaded storage, offering capacities up to 1200 lbs. per shelf. However, some applications require additional storage. In general, if you intend to store individual bins or boxes of product, heavy duty warehouse shelving may fit the bill.

Modern Shelving Improvements Give You a Reliable Product

Recent improvements in shelving design gives you a heavy duty shelving system you can rely on. Back in the 1970s, customers paid attention to what gauge steel the shelves were made out of. Lower gauge steel is thicker, so all things being equal, lower gauge has greater capacity. Back then it made sense to order 18-gauge heavy duty shelving units because getting lighter gauge metal to hold more weight was difficult.

Basically, when you take a piece of metal and bend it 90 degrees, the bent metal is able to take more load. When you bend it again and make a box weld, you make a sort of I-beam to help support the shelf. While the physics were the same as now, this process required labor to make these precision bends and welds. Now, industrial robots make the bends and welds with precision, and 20-gauge steel or thinner has the capacity of what basic 18-gauge had a few decades ago. This is great news given the amazing inflation in steel over the past several years.
