How to Guide to Boltless Shelving
Longspan Boltless Shelving
Regular Boltless Shelving
Boltless shelving is a great product for general purpose storage of all kinds. This industrial bulk shelving system is more closely related to pallet racking than to traditional steel shelving, as it's fully self-contained; in other words, you don't need any hardware to assemble it. Boltless shelving consists of the rails and upright posts. The unique "buttons" on the shelf rails snap directly into the post holes – No nuts and bolts!
This shelving comes in two main types – longspan boltless shelving and regular boltless shelving. Longspan is typically a little more rugged, featuring higher weight capacities and longer span shelves. The regular boltless shelving has lower capacities and doesn't have the size advantage that longspan boltless does, although this is still a more convenient and sturdier solution than traditional metal shelving.
Choosing Boltless Shelving
Step 1: Choose from Starter or Adder Units
The first decision in ordering boltless shelving is whether you need a starter unit, add-on unit or both. The starter unit can stand by itself or you may purchase add-on units to attach to the starter unit. For example, if you want a row of three shelving bays, you would order one starter unit and two add-on units
Step 2: Choose Shelf Size
Next you can choose the size of shelving unit that you want to order. All boltless shelving sold online is 7 feet in height. All boltless longspan sheving is priced with 4 shelves. The boltless regular shelving comes in 4-, 5- or 6-shelf varieties. Additional shelves can be ordered for both the regular and longspan shelving units.
