Following the information below to maintain the functionality and longevity of your wire rack shelving system:

  • Inspect for bent wiring, rust spots and warping periodically
  • Address any damage to the unit to prevent any further deterioration
  • Avoid cleaning with harsh chemicals to maintain the finish on the unit
  • Adjust shelving to new storage requirements as often as necessary
  • Keep shelving units in a dry and low-humidity environment to prevent rusting

Factors to Consider When Choosing a Wire Rack

There are many factors to consider when choosing the wire rack shelving to best fit your needs.

First, determine whether a wire rack or different storage solution will be necessary for your application based on the weight of the items you are storing or displaying. Barron’s wire rack shelving units provide a rugged 800 lb. overall weight capacity, bearing 200 lbs. per shelf. Any additional weight to wire racking can cause bowing or warping of the shelves over time. Additionally, carbon steel wire racks are prone to rust and are most fitting in dry and non-humid environments.

Next, find the appropriate size of the rack you will need based on the space you would like to house the wire shelving unit and the size of the items or merchandise you will be storing. Barron Equipment offers a wide selection of widths and depths of shelving units to choose from.

Lastly, choose the finish and leg type of the metal racking that best fits your application. Barron Equipment offers both stationary and mobile wire racking in three colors, making our selection fit for warehouse storage to commercial displays.
