This means EXPO shelving can be used in a variety of sectors, including Industrial, Retail and Office applications. It has the capability to be built
either as just a few simple bays of shelving or a complete self-supporting storage structure, which could be configured as rack supported floors, two or three tier installations or high bay racks which use automated or guided picking equipment.

Expo 4 Shelf Overview

The EXPO 4 shelf design shown above comprises a single shelf panel that sits on a steel clip in each corner. This allows quick and simple installation and adjustment of each level.
Using the latest design and manufacturing technologies the shelf has been designed to provide a “friction fit” due to the unique connection between the shelf, shelf clip and upright. This provides additional strength and stability to the shelf and the bay through its unique design.
The shelves are available in a variety of modular sizes and can also be fitted with either one or two reinforcing ribs depending on the shelf
capacity required. The shelves are finished in a hard wearing epoxy powder paint finish.

Expo 3 Shelf Overview

The unique design of the EXPO 3 style shelf brings the possibility for a greater range of shelf sizes and capacities. The use of a shelf carrier at
each end of the shelf, which supports a combination of shelf panels in a variety of depths, provides capacities up to 500kgs UDL.
This also means the shelf is available in widths from 550 to 1500mm and depths from 200 to 1000mm. The Expo 3 shelf design can also create compartment shelving with the addition of a slotted panel and a fixed height divider. As there is no additional bracing to the end frames, each
bay can offer open access on all four sides.

Fixed Height Dividers

Compartment shelving is suitable for sub-dividing shelves to keep items organized and in their own location. By using a specially slotted EXPO3
Shelf panel and a vertical steel divider, multiple compartments can be created within each shelf.
The dividers can be positioned every 50mm along the shelf and made any height in increments of 25mm. The addition of a bin front and back
panel means smaller items can also be stored.

These can produce a pigeon hole style of system along with a free standing divider system where a full height system is not required.

Shelf Trays

The Heavy Duty Shelf Trays have been designed specifically to fit the EXPO 4 shelving and maximise the density of storing small parts within
small part shelving bays.
Each tray fits perfectly within the 1000mm wide modules and is available in two widths, two heights and three depths, all of which can be sub
divided by a simple slot in divider.
The trays and dividers have a large reference label for clear identification which means selecting the correct item is much easier. The addition of
the sprung loaded shelf stop allows the tray to be safely withdrawn and held in position without the risk of the tray falling.
