Metal Shelving

From libraries to law offices to museums, our metal shelving has been used in some of the world’s most interesting spaces. Cantilever shelving or 4-post, wide span or wire, we have a solution.

Spacesaver offers a variety of metal shelving options, depending on the type, weight, and bulk of the stuff you’re storing. Originally specializing in library storage, we now offer solutions for all types of objects.

Cantilever Shelving (Bookstack Shelving)

Due to its strength and aesthetic design, cantilever shelving is ideal for academic, corporate, public and legal libraries as well as many other general office applications—although it’s worth noting that those same features are the reason this shelving is also popping up in industrial warehouses, museums, law enforcement agencies, and more. With the Modular EZ Rail™ element, you can further transform this shelving system into a holder for industry standard plastic bins, pegboard, slatrail, and slatwall accessories.

Wide Span Shelving

Rugged and versatile, Spacesaver’s RaptorRAC™ wide-span shelving provides the perfect platform for storing those heavy, bulky items. Designed to work in static applications as well as seamlessly integrate with Spacesaver’s industry-leading mobile systems, RaptorRAC’s range of standard and configured sizes and decking options make it possible to build a custom shelving system for your needs.

Wide-span shelving is ideal for a variety of applications. We’ve seen it applied to everything from parachutes on a military base, to evidence storage in a police station, to stock in industrial warehouses, to large artifacts in museums.
