Wide Span Shelving

Wide-span shelving is designed for storage areas in which goods are handled manually instead of being transported on a pallet.  The system is ideal when there are many different products (SKUs), when the quantities are small or variable, and when rotation is only partial. The system is designed for handloading medium to heavy loads.  In other words, wide-span shelving cannot be machine loaded.
