Longspan Shelving is a term applied to shelving with a LONG span between uprights. A normal span becomes a long span above around 1200mm. The span can be as long as required, though spans over 3000mm become very expensive or will carry very little weight.
The main components of a Longspan Shelving System are:
- Frames consisting of 2 uprights held together by horizontal and diagonal bracing
- Beams which attach to the frames.
- A shelf cladding which is normally either steel or chipboard
- Where necessary, decking supports to increase the loading capacity of the chipboard
The long span between uprights allows you to store large bulky items
- Boxes of the same size
- Boxes of different sizes
- Or a variety of boxes and other bulky items
