Boltless heavy weight shelving

Shelving that adapts to your specialised needs.

General Purpose Steel Shelving is a space-effective and economical storage system for virtually any heavy-duty application. Manufactured from quality steel and modular in design, General Purpose Steel Shelving is designed for versatility and easy installation and can be easily adjusted or relocated. A comprehensive range of accessories is available including shelf dividers, drawers and kick plates.

  • Open Braced Bolted Steel Shelving is the most basic and economical shelving design for general purpose use. Back and sides are open, except that sections are stabilised by means of cross braces on the back and sides.
  • Closed Back and Side Bolted Steel Shelving units are closed on three sides with steel panels to provide stability, protection of the items stored and to promote cleanliness of these items. When units are joined side by side and back to back, a common side or back panel is used between the two units achieving a large cost saving.
  •  These units are assembled into rows of units side by side and back to back and are of sufficient strength to support Mezzanine Floors.
  • Krost Shelving and Racking storage experts will design the correct storage solution to maximize your storage space in the most economical manner.
