Heavy-Duty Shelving Systems

A Heavy Duty Shelving System

E-Z’s heavy-duty shelving systems are built from industrial-strength steel and aluminum. The brackets and shelves feature stiffening flanges that prevent deformation under heavy loading. Working together, the components form a “rock-solid” connection to your building structure, suitable for applications such as:

  • Heavy Storage (Coins, Ammunition)
  • Humid Environments (Walk-in Coolers/Freezers, Turnout Gear Storage)
  • Shop Work Surfaces
  • Mobile Storage (Box Trucks, Shipping Containers)

 

The shelving is rock-solid when attached to wall panels in the freezer or cooler.  It makes a big difference, especially when it comes to safety.

…the product is virtually indestructible. We use it in both offices to hold up our desk tops.
