Metalware Wide Span

Wide Span was introduced in 2014 to meet the distribution needs for a bulk storage system. Using the metal frame and a low cost wood shelf we can achieve savings for the end user all the while maintaining the capacities needed for a larger size than what we can offer in shelving.

Easy installation, cost effective, available in multiple depths, widths and heights as well as offering multiple surfaces for the shelves such as wood, wire mesh and steel. Ideal for record storage, Wide span’s dimensions are in line with standard archival box sizes.

Wood Shelf

Wood shelves for our wide span line are available in a multitude of sizes to meet your requirements. We also ofer wire mesh or solid steel shelves.

Frame Connector

Frame connectors are used to connect posts together from front to back. Refer to capacity charts to determine the number of connectors required.


A 14 gauge roll formed post with 2” slots to allow easy adjustability of the unit’s height. Splice posts together to create a mezzanine catwalk system.

Tie Bar

Tie bars are designed to avoid buckling on longer beams. Placed between the two beams, they will also increase the capacity of the level.


2” profle beams made of 13 gauge steel are the main shelf support. Available in a variety of widths and capacities.

Foot Plate

Foot plates are used to anchor the units to the foor. Highly recommended for units of 8 feet or taller.

Using 5 wide span components and no hardware you can create the bulk storage system you need.
