2000 Series Open Shelving with Angle Posts

Republic makes industrial clip shelving to fit your storage needs. Our steel open shelving units can be found in businesses and warehouses across the country. They are the perfect, budget friendly option for storing and organizing smaller products. Republic has been an industry leader in heavy-duty open shelving since 1930.

What Is Industrial Open Shelving?

Republic 2000 series steel open shelving units have open sides and backs. This allows for access from all sides. They allow light to penetrate a storage area and allow for free air flow around stored materials. This style of shelving uses cross braces on the sides and back to provide support to the shelving unit. Open metal shelving is available in different depths and widths. We stock our clip shelving in our standard Dove Gray finish. The powder coat paint finish will protect your industrial open shelving from everyday use.

Uprights and Sway Braces

These 2000 series steel open shelving units come with either beaded or angle post uprights. Beaded posts will only be used on the front side. Republic roll forms the posts from 14-gauge steel for maximum strength. The back and side sway braces help to stabilize each open metal shelving unit. Republic punches the 12-gauge steel sway braces so that you can easily attach them to the post uprights with nuts and bolts.

Starters and Add-Ons

You can use Republic 2000 series steel open shelving units as standalone units or with add-on sections. Join add-ons to a starter to create rows of shelving.

Adjustable Shelves

Our versatile 2000 series steel open shelving units come with fully adjustable shelves. We roll form the shelves from 20-gauge steel. Our shelf design features box formations in both the front and rear of each shelf. These heavy-duty shelves can hold up to 850 lbs. Each shelf sits on 4 compression clips that we form from 13-gauge steel. The Republic clip design lets you easily adjust these steel open shelves on 1-1/2-inch vertical centers.

Republic has a huge selection of accessories to get the most out of your 2000 series steel open shelving units. We make shelf dividers to create dedicated areas on a shelf for products. There are steel and plastic shelf bins for storing smaller loose items such as parts or hardware. Get label holders so people can easily find stored items. Finally, get all the parts you need to make sure your metal open shelving unit is properly anchored and secured in place.
