Materials & Workmanship
The shelving is made from only the finest materials and highest quality workmanship. The sheet metal is commercial quality steel fully pickled or equivalent.
Open uprights are formed of 18-gauge cold roll steel, rolled into a 2” wide hollow “T” or 1” wide hollow “L” shape with keyslot holes punched on 1-½” centers along the inner wall. There are no holes on the face of the post. The front and back posts are joined by welded 18-gauge 3” high spacers to maintain the required distance apart and add rigidity to the assembly. Top and bottom spacers have 11/16” stiffening flange with two ¼” holes to allow securing to the floor or mobile base. Center spacers are flat strips. All uprights 64” high or less plus uprights 76” to 88” high that are less then 30” deep have three spacers. All other uprights have four spacers. The “L” uprights are used for row ends and the “T” uprights are used as common intermediate uprights.
Closed uprights have the same specification as open uprights except the spacers are replaced by welding a 24-gauge closure sheet with a stiffener flange at the bottom of the closure sheet. The flange has two ¼” holes to allow securing to the floor or mobile base.
Shelves are formed of 22-gauge cold roll steel with 25/32” high channel formation on all sides. Return flange is formed 120° permitting easier installation. Optional Slotted Shelves have shelf divider slots punched on 2” centers. Two supports required per shelf
Shelves are formed of 18-gauge cold roll steel with 1-7/32”” high channel formation on all sides. Return flange is formed 120° permitting easier installation. Shelves available punched with divider slots or holes on 2” centers for use with X-Ray X or B type dividers. Two supports required per shelf.
Thin Shelf Support
Shelf supports are formed of hot roll pickled steel, 36” from 14-gauge and 42” & 48” from 11-gauge, 11/16” high with flat ears at either end. Semi-tubular rivets with 7/16” diameter head is staked onto ears, four rivets for each support, to set into the keyslot holes of the Open and Closed Uprights.
Heavy Shelves Support
Shelf supports are formed of 11-gauge hot roll pickled steel, 1-1/8” high with flat ears at either end. Semi-tubular rivets with 7/16” diameter head is staked onto ears, four rivets for each support, to set into the keyslot holes of the Open and Closed Uprights.
All steel parts are thoroughly cleaned in a multistage washer including the application of a phosphate coating. This results in superior paint adhesion and rust resistance. A durable baked on Powder Coat is applied for a high-quality finish. Coverage is capable of withstanding a minimum of 250 hours salt spray test per (ASTM) method number B-117 in a salt spray chamber as well as all normal resistance of a quality finish.
