I have a question about...
Are the shelf clips included in the price of the shelves and shelving kits?
How thick are the wires on your wire shelving?
How do I purchase a wire shelving kit that is a different size than what you offer?
Is your wire shelving hard to put together?
Can I add casters to my wire shelving unit? Which ones are the right ones?
Can I add another shelf to my wire shelving unit?
Do I have to have a shelf at the bottom?
How are SI brand shelves measured?
What is the distance between the shelves?
Our Wire Shelving posts have notches every inch that allow shelves to be adjusted, so you can make the space between your shelves as short or tall as you need them to be!
What is the difference between your SI Wire Shelving and Metro Wire Shelving?
Our wire shelving is manufactured to the same specifications and grade of steel as Metro, meaning they have the same weight capacity. The Super Erecta Metro line we carry has levers that allow for easy shelf adjustment. However, our SI brand has far more sizes to choose from since we stock our brand in bulk. If you put SI brand and Metro side by side you really couldn't tell the difference but our SI brand is more budget friendly because of our bulk quantities.
What parts make up a post?
Here is an illustration of our posts' anatomy. Note: all posts over 54" in length come in two pieces that are held together by a connector (as shown in the picture). Smaller posts will not have this piece because they do not ship in two pieces.
