Here’s Another Handy Idea: Wide Span Shelving for the Front End

Are you at a loss for how to effectively display bulky items like liquor bottles or pet food? Do you have a stock room that is a mess due to lack of proper shelving to store items? The creative concept of Wide Span Shelving may be the answer to your retail shelving problems.




Wide Span Shelving is also a great solution for warehouses or stock rooms, as each shelf has the ability to hold over 2,000 pounds evenly distributed.


With Wide Span Shelving, each section is modular and available in a variety of colors and sizes. Each shelf can stack on top of one another for multiple levels of display, making the shelves perfect for the “bargain look” of bulk items. The strong shelving option is sure to enhance any store display, making large products easily visible and accessible.


Wide Span Shelves are constructed from steel for long lasting strength and the decks are available in grid or wood in an option of finishes. Prior to being shipped, the uprights are completely welded and bolted together to maintain rigidity. Once received, the shelves are easy to assemble with no nuts or bolts.


And remember, when you work with Handy, you will always find:



  • Superior customer service



  • Store designers with over 25 years of experience that are always available to answer questions



  • The fastest lead time on the most steel color and black panel options in the gondola shelving industry



  • The easiest to assemble gondolas with the fewest parts



  • Accessories that are always in stock and ready to ship immediately
