Customizing storage containers with shelving for your specific needs is definitely a winning move in the game of productivity. Stacking materials without support or structure, especially in a disorganized fashion, will lead to unnecessary duplication of efforts as well as possible injuries. Isn’t is often the case that the one item you need is always the one that is furthest away or at the bottom of the stack or pile? So you wind up moving materials repeatedly as you need to get to other items. Additionally, it is difficult to fully utilize vertical space without shelving.
When deciding on shelving for your storage container it is important to consider the weight of the materials to be stored. You will then need to compare the load rating of the shelving to the weight of those items. It is a good idea to have a larger weight capacity than you currently need to cover future changes or additions to your stored goods.
Custom rack shelving can be added to any container you purchase from us. We also carry the Atlas Shelving system, an adjustable shelving system that attaches to the tie downs located along the top of each container. Suspended from the overhead tie downs, this system does not require drilling and does not redirect valuable floor space required by larger items. This system is rated at 1,000 pounds per bracket.
High Cube containers are an excellent option as well. These containers have a higher ceiling and can accomodate taller shelving, utilizing that vertical space that so often is not used while keeping the same ground level footprint.
A American Container can customize shelving to meet your specific needs so you can store your goods in the most productive way possible instead of having to conform to standardized shelf measurements.
