|SIDE SHELF SUPPORTS:
Heavy gauge steel angles which support steel shelves.
Each support engages the upright frame at four points. One or
more tangs stamped into the surface engages the reinforcing pan
on the shelf bottom to prevent accidental dislodging of the
shelf. One pair is required for each steel shelf.
RIGID WALL BRACKETS:
Used to fasten upright frames to the wall for sturdy
single row applications. Includes hardware to fasten to frame.
RIGID ROW SPACERS:
Used to space and join back-to-back shelving units. Adds
rigidity to double row applications. Includes hardware.
PLYWOOD USED IN LIEU OF STEEL
Special beams and supports are used when plywood, pressed wood,
particle board, oriented strand board or other composition type
panels are used in place of steel shelves (these deck materials
must be purchased separately). Two beam types are available:
Standard Plywood Beams, and Heavy Duty Plywood Beams. Each is
manufactured an extra 1/2" long to facilitate placement of
full foot lengths of decking. Each uses a different type of
front to back support for the decking material. Neither can be
used in the same unit or bay with standard rigidity beams,
because the lengths are different.
STANDARD PLYWOOD BEAMS:
Designed to support 1/2" thick deck material flush with top
of beam flange when used with the appropriate number of Plywood
Support Angles (ordered separately) which insert into slots in
beam step. Overall height is 3-1/2". Beam step is
1-1/2" deep by 5/8" high. A 48" deep deck will
fit between beams without trimming when a 48" deep upright
frame is used.
HEAVY DUTY PLYWOOD BEAMS:
These beams can support a greater load than Standard Plywood
Beams, and have a flush front facing the aisle. Requires the use
of Beam Brace/Heavy Duty Plywood Supports which are ordered
separately. A full 48" x 96" deck will fit on a pair
of 96-1/2" beams when 50" deep upright frames are
Heavy Duty Plywood Beams can be used in the same unit or bay
with Standard Plywood Beams, however the depth of the decking
material must be trimmed for the heavy duty beams (i.e. deck
must be trimmed to 2" less depth than the depth of the
STANDARD PLYWOOD SUPPORT ANGLES:
Standard Plywood Support Angles fit into the slots in the beam
step of Standard Plywood Beams. Order separately from beams.
Order two per pair of 48-1/2" & 60-1/2" beams;
three for 72-1/2" & 84-1/2" beams; four for
BEAM BRACE/HEAVY DUTY PLYWOOD
This item fits easily into the inside of the beam opening and
has two functions: A) When Rigidity Beams are used as load
bearing members, the Beam Braces are used to keep the beams from
twisting; B) When used with Heavy Duty Plywood Beams they are
used as Plywood supports. Use a minimum of two supports per pair
of beams. Use more if required by your load condition.
