Simple storage for production areas

Simple storage for production areas Users wanting to add storage space to work benches or production areas need look no further than the Item Shelf 8. The shelf is available as either 200mm or 320mm deep, and can be provided as a 600mm long unit complete with ends caps, or can be cut to any desired length up to 6m long from the raw extrusions, and finished with end caps as required.

It is therefore no longer necessary to construct shelves from an unnecessarily complicated and expensive combination of several different extrusions and panels, saving time and money in the process.

The shelf profile is designed using the tried-and-trusted rebate profile type of connection, whereby the shelf is simply tilted in to place and secured with a pair of grub-screws to prevent removal. It really is very simple, and correspondingly quick, to install.

The extrusion itself is hollow, making it lightweight and inexpensive, and the anodised aluminium surface offers a stylish finish. The addition of line 5 T-slots facilitates the addition of partitions and other attachments.

If there is no horizontal profile to attach the shelf to, then a Shelf Adapter Set is is available, so the shelf can be used even on constructions that are not made from Item aluminium profiles.

The shelves are capable of supporting loads of up to 500N and are available from Machine Building Systems Ltd's stocks at its Ripley factory.
