Metal Shelving Units

What is Metal Shelving?

Metal shelving units are metal framed bays with shelves generally made of MDF, chipboard or metal. They are designed for safely storing a wide variety of items in commercial and domestic locations. We have lots of different variants to suit all sorts of budgets and applications. These metal shelving units are great for storage at home, in garages, in warehouses and for storerooms.

Many of our metal shelving products are made proudly in the UK, so you can be sure that no compromises are made on quality. Every effort has been made to create useful and exceptionally hard-wearing metal shelving that will last a very long time.

All of our metal shelving units are extremely easy to assemble. Generally, they all take just 5 – 10 minutes and require only a rubber mallet to build. This makes it much quicker and easier to assemble than traditional shelving units. Use these metal shelving units to keep your workplace tidy and organised. They typically have very large load capacities of 120kg -250kg and above per shelf so are very suitable for storing large and heavy items.


What are the benefits of metal shelving and which models should I use?

The wide selection of products in our range of metal shelving are well suited to use in many different applications. For home use, shelves like the Quick-Click Metal Shelving are ideal. This is very easy to assemble and comes in 175kg per shelf and 265kg per shelf load capacities. Use shelves with larger load capacities to safely store heavier items. These shelves fully conform with GS TUV standards so you know that they are also safe for commercial use in the UK and Europe.

For garages, the Galvanised Steel Shelving units are superb. They are made from rust-resistant galvanised steel, which is perfect for use in garages that can often be damp. A sizeable maximum load of 200kg per shelf means you can easily store heavy items on these shelves. This type of metal shelving also works very well in retail environments and are easy to clean.


When storing really heavy items, and for use in more demanding locations, the Heavy-Load Shelving is an excellent choice. With massive maximums load capacities of 200kg – 300kg and chunky 12mm chipboard shelves, you can be sure that they are very strong and sturdy. A robust steel 6 fold channel beam construction ensures superb durability.


The J-Rivet space saver shelves are ideal for use in cramped areas. They also feature melamine shelves which can be wiped down with a wet cloth, an advantage over other shelving materials like chipboard. This means that they are great for use in retail areas where shelves need to be cleaned regularly.
