Space is a valuable resource in all kitchens and the management of space must be handled carefully to maximize kitchen efficiency. Often times there just is not enough space in a commercial kitchen to store everything from equipment to tableware and utensils. However, through planning and utilization of the right shelving system this issue can be properly handled and create a more smoothly run operation.
We provide shelving units in both open-wire and solid styles in a number of different finishes and materials for each.

The most popular shelving system. Stationary shelving rests on straight posts that do not offer any mobility.
Mobile shelving is essentially stationery shelving with the added bonus of having casters to support the system. This adds a great layer of versatility and function to the shelving system including the transportation of heavy or large products.
High Density Shelving
High density shelving, also known as track shelving, operates off the same concept as mobile shelving. However, instead of moving the shelf system around via casters the shelves are attached to a track system. The shelves can be mounted in a variety of ways including to the floor and ceiling. In addition to this, high density shelves do not require an even floor and are much easier to clean.
Wall-mounted shelves are simply shelves mounted to a wall. They can be mounted at any height to accommodate to the specific situation. This shelving system is ideal for walk in refrigerators and is known for its ease of cleaning.
We offer shelves in a vast variety of sizes to accommodate for the unique differences and design of every kitchen. Shelf lengths range from 24″ to 72″ while shelf height can be raised up to 86″ and shelf depths range from 12″ to 36″. The most popular shelf dimensions for height and depth are 74″ and 18″ – 24″ respectively. Before deciding on what shelving system size is most appropriate for your kitchen consider how much space you have dedicated to storage, and what exactly you will be storing.
