Product description

Shelving and storage system with unmatched flexibility

Uprights and profiles in extruded anodized aluminium with finish in satin silver, matt black, or powder coated white.
Shelves and storage units in anodized aluminium sheet, finished in satin silver, matt black, or powder coated white.
Uprights: used to create partition shelving. The uprights support these shelves and are fitted and secured to the floor and ceiling. Therefore, it is important to check the hold and tightness of the ceilings. The uprights cannot be fitted when there are false-ceilings of any kind. The uprights can be adjusted in height by 4 cm at the top and 4 cm in the lower part by adjusting the end units. The uprights must be properly matched with the profiles.
Extensions: to be used to increase the height of uprights.
Supports: to be used for shelving system installed with wall upright or along walls. They serve as an anchor and bracketing for wall shelving. Their use is highly recommended when shelves have to hold a great deal of weight and for all uprights that exceed 3 m in height.
Reinforcement cross-pieces in extruded anodized aluminium with satin silver, matt black, or powder coated white. They are used solely for shelving with uprights. Cross-pieces should be attached in every span, one for each meter of height (e.g. 3 cross-pieces for 3 meters in height).
Extruded anodized aluminium profiles with satin silver or matt black finish, or powder coated white. Used to mount and attach shelves. To be used both for wall shelving and for uprights. The spacing of the holes for the positioning of the shelves differs in the 11 cm and 39.5 cm profiles, so one or the other should be used. In case of wall profile, verify wall firmness in order to choose the ideal anchor.
