What Makes Lightweight Shelving Different From Other Options?

While it may appear indistinguishable from other styles, lightweight shelving or rivet shelving comes with a few unique features. First is the rivet assembly design. With a single- or double-rivet system that locks shelves into place, rivet shelving is easy to assemble and surprisingly strong. Additionally, some systems won’t have sway bars or panels, making all four sides accessible.

What Tools Are Needed For Assembly?

One of the key features of lightweight or rivet systems, the rivets themselves, makes assembly a breeze. In most cases, the only tool you might need will be a rubber mallet to help lock the rivets in place. You’ll find you won’t need to struggle with nuts, fasteners or bolts. That makes for easy assembly.

Is Lightweight Industrial Shelving Adjustable?

Yes, most lightweight industrial shelving or rivet shelving units are adjustable and designed to allow easy modification of shelf heights. This can help facilities accommodate items of varying sizes. To adjust shelves, most units require the movement of the rivets themselves as well as repositioning of the shelves.

What Is The Weight Capacity For Lightweight Shelving?

The weight capacity for lightweight or rivet solutions is going to depend on several factors. This includes the size of the unit, materials and the design. Generally speaking, though, standard rivet shelving units can handle loads from 500 to 1,500 lbs per shelf. Always review manufacturer specifications to determine proper weight capacity ranges.

Is Wire Decking Or Particle Board Shelving A Better Choice?

You’ll often need to decide between metal wire decking or particle board construction for your lightweight shelf systems. Wire decking is a sturdier option that can stand up to low temperatures and moisture, all while handling heavy loads with ease. Particle board can still offer reliable storage — and often at a lower cost relative to wire decking — but is more susceptible to extreme temperature shifts, moisture, and damage.
