Project Description

Wide Span Shelving

A Wide Open Storage Alternative

Metalware Wide Span shelving provides a heavy-duty storage solution with an easily accessible, widespan design. It bridges the gap between clip-type shelving like steel shelving and full-scale pallet racking, and can accommodate hand-loaded items as well as pick lift loads (within the Wide Span load capacity ratings). Accessories such as back-to-back ties, wall ties and foot plates add strength and stability.

Easy installation, cost effective, available in multiple depths, widths and heights as well as offering multiple surfaces for the shelves such as wood, wire mesh and steel. Ideal for record storage, Wide span’s dimensions are in line with standard archival box sizes.

Wood Shelf

Wood shelves for our wide span line are available in a multitude of sizes to meet your requirements. We also ofer wire mesh or solid steel shelves.

Frame Connector

Frame connectors are used to connect posts together from front to back. Refer to capacity charts to determine the number of connectors required.


A 14 gauge roll formed post with 2” slots to allow easy adjustability of the unit’s height. Splice posts together to create a mezzanine catwalk system.

Tie Bar

Tie bars are designed to avoid buckling on longer beams. Placed between the two beams, they will also increase the capacity of the level.


2” profle beams made of 13 gauge steel are the main shelf support. Available in a variety of widths and capacities.

Foot Plate

Foot plates are used to anchor the units to the foor. Highly recommended for units of 8 feet or taller.
