A shelving unit is usually made of wood, metal, glass, steel, and other materials. It may not have doors or even windows, depending upon what you need it for. It doesn’t have to be aesthetically pleasing as well. Many shelving units can be made to look like closets, storage units, display cabinets, pantries, drawers, or anything else you need it to do. A shelving unit takes up minimal space, usually no more than 5 feet wide and 12 feet long, depending on which Rackzone shelving you choose.

A shelf is basically a flat, even floor plane that’s used to hold things that are either displayed, stored, or available for purchase. Usually, it’s supported on its longer end at the bottom and extended off the floor at the top. It may not be held up with pillars or posts. Some shelving units stack on top of each other; others are part of a freestanding arrangement, where one shelf serves as a base for others; and some are arranged in “stack and cover” style, which means that they’re arranged so that shelves are at the base of the shelves, while other shelves are mounted on boards or other forms of shelf support.

Pipe shelving is relatively simple to install if you have the proper tools, or if you know how to use hand tools. The system consists of several shelves, each fitted with metal brackets, which can be bolted together to form a sturdy shelf that hides your pipes.
