Racking & Shelving


Racking and Shelving are two of the most common systems used for warehouse storage around the world.

The two words are often used interchangeably, but in reality there is a vast difference between "Racking" and "Shelving".

What is Racking and Shelving?

At its core, racking and shelving is simply a storage system that can be used in warehouses, factories, distribution centers, businesses, homes and garages.

A storage system is something that safely holds products, materials and other items placed inside of it for either long or short term storage. This could refer to books on a bookshelf, or pallets on pallet racking.

What is the difference between Racking and Shelving?

Shelving Systems:

The main use of shelving systems is to store items which are accessible by hand. This could be books, files, stationary, small parts, boxes or cartons.

Shelving systems are much lighter duty than a racking system, meaning that it can support a much lighter weight than racking can.

Racking Systems:

The main use of racking systems is to store large, bulky and heavy items which need to be loaded onto the racks via forklift. The types of items stored in racking systems are often impossible to handle by hand.

Racking is a heavy duty storage system. It allows you to support much heavier loads than shelving systems can.
