A shelving unit is a specifically designed framework that is used to exhibit objects, products, or data in a certain order so as to make a display of items visible to customers or other interested parties. The shelving is usually flat, with a smooth and level surface on all sides, and usually supported by built-in brackets on its longer ends. It may also be hung from the wall or ceiling. It can be secured by fixtures, screws, or other permanent structures such as columns. Shelving may be movable, stackable, portable, or collapsible and you can see all of these options at Rackzone. A shelving unit is usually found in organizations, offices, stores, and other places where objects are displayed, stored, or sold.
There are several types of shelving available in the market today, including wire shelving, wood shelving, and pallet racking. Wire shelving is composed of rods and shelves that are attached together with clamps. This facilitates easy storage and transportation of materials. Wood shelving consists of wooden shelves, hangers, and hooks.
A popular type of shelving is pallet racking, which is composed of individual shelves stacked on top of each other. These racks are commonly seen in retail stores and warehouses, and are commonly used to display different types of goods. Wooden racks are preferred over metal, plastic, and composite racking, because of the aesthetic qualities they offer. Both horizontal and vertical bin shelving are available in the market, but vertical racks tend to be taller and hold more materials than horizontal ones.« Back
