If you’re contemplating using boltless shelving in your warehouse or distribution center, you’re not alone. Boltless shelving is a popular product used in a wide variety of industries. From light duty wire shelving used in food services and health care to heavy duty boltless shelving used to build catwalk and mezzanine structures for parts distribution, boltless shelving is a great choice for many hand pick and high-density parts storage applications. Read on to learn about some of the benefits associated with this product.
Top 3 Reasons to Choose Boltless Shelving
1) Easy to scale, adjust, & modify
The primary benefit of boltless shelving is that it is a pre-engineered structure with standardized parts making it possible to scale, adjust and modify the storage area of your facility with as minimal effort and labor as possible.
2) Meets seismic building codes
In most jurisdictions, a permit and seismic anchoring is required for any shelving over 5’9” and a state licensed engineer’s stamp (signed and dated) is required for shelving or racks greater than 8’. Boltless shelving can be engineered to meet seismic building codes to comply with the requirements in your jurisdiction and improve warehouse safety.
