Cargo shelving Avtoprommarket
Cargo shelving is the metal warehouse constructions designated for storing various cargoes in containers, on flooring or on pallets. The main elements of the construction are horizontal beams and vertical frames. The beams are connected to frames by bolt connections or connectors (hooks).
According to the unconfirmed data, the first cargo shelving was invented in XIII century A.D. by an unknown sailor. It was wooden and very bulky. In order to move the construction from one place to another, it was necessary to disassemble it each time. In 1857 this type of shelving was patented for the first time. At the time these constructions were used exclusively for storing food. In Russia only welded cargo shelving was used up to 1990s. However, they soon became not popular as the construction could not be disassembled and had a number of other limitations.
Main types, characteristics, and specifics
Cargo shelving can be of the following types:
- Pallet (front);
Let's discuss each of these types in more details.
Palette cargo shelving
This is the front shelving for palettes. They exhibit very high carrying capacity, while their construction is very simple. These systems are the perfect option for demonstrating a wide range of goods of different categories as they provide good visibility from any side.
Cargo long-span shelving
It is designated mainly for storing different piece goods or packed cargoes. The construction is intrinsically simple. Cargo long-span shelving is fast to assemble and disassemble. In addition, cargo long-span shelving can be equipped with some additional elements. Cargo long-span shelving usually ensures easy access to cargoes thus making the manual processing of them possible.
Console cargo shelving
It is the multideck metal constructions made of bearing consoles and vertical beams. It is primarily designated for storing long and non-standard cargoes. The load is frontal and can be both one-sided and two-sided.
Gravity-flow cargo racks
It is a construction, in which the shelves are located with a small incline. Thus, the cargo moves to the unloading point by itself. The use of this type of shelving allows significantly saving the free space in the warehouse and split it into loading and unloading areas.
Drive-in cargo shelving
It is also called tunnel shelving; it is the metal construction the purpose of which is to store same-type bulky cargoes. Thanks to the specifics of the construction, the warehouse machinery can work inside the shelving. The main difference with the gravity-flow shelving is that the goods loaded first will be unloaded last. The use of such systems allows significantly saving space due to small between-shelving areas.
Mobile cargo shelving
It is also called movable. It is a special platform located on guiding paths and equipped with shelves. Pallets may be used instead of shelves. The control over this system is performed by a mechanical or electric drive.
Mezzanine cargo shelving
It is the multideck shelving constructions that are usually used for storing various types of small goods. The number of decks is limited only by the height of warehouse ceilings. To facilitate access to the goods, one may use ladders and railings.

Console shelving is often chosen for using at the bases for various materials - construction, metals, wholesale goods and in workshops.
