Open Shelving Uprights And Sway Braces

Unlock the potential for creating a tailored storage solution with Republic’s steel open shelving uprights and cross braces. These clip shelving components empower you to seamlessly replace or enhance parts of your existing shelving setup. Republic’s open shelving design features exposed backs and sides, making it an ideal choice for cost-effective, versatile storage solutions. Notably, open shelving units enable natural light to permeate the storage area while facilitating unrestricted airflow around stored materials. Open steel shelving provides a comprehensive storage solution, capable of addressing a broad spectrum of needs, from basic backroom storage to fully integrated warehouse applications.

Uprights For Open Clip Shelving

With Republic open clip shelving, you have a choice between beaded posts and angle posts. We employ a roll-forming process with robust 14-gauge steel to manufacture the post uprights, ensuring unparalleled strength and durability. These post uprights feature precision punching designed for our compression shelf clips, facilitating effortless shelf adjustments on 1-½ inch centers. When it comes to configuration, beaded posts find their place exclusively in the front corners of a shelving section, whereas angle posts offer versatility, accommodating use in both front and rear corners of your shelving setup.

Sway Braces

Our sway braces are expertly crafted from sturdy 12-gauge steel, serving as essential stabilizing components for open shelving units. Republic has thoughtfully punched these sway braces, allowing for effortless attachment to the 2000 series open uprights using nuts and bolts. To ensure proper support and stability, it’s crucial to incorporate one pair of sway braces on the back of an open shelving unit, as well as on both sides of the shelving section. While side sway braces effectively mitigate front-to-back sway, the back sway brace plays a pivotal role in averting lateral sway, collectively reinforcing the structural integrity of your open shelving unit.

Both the uprights and sway braces are offered in our standard Dove Gray finish, featuring a powder coat paint that provides protection against the rigors of everyday use. Republic proudly manufactures its 2000 series uprights and sway braces in the USA, ensuring quality and reliability.
