Dixie Widespan, sometimes referred to as “Rivet Shelving” or “Boltless Shelving”, is commonly used in applications that require high load capacity in widths beyond what standard metal shelving is available in. Its design allows quick assembly and brace free construction. Brace free construction allows access to shelving levels from both sides with no X-bracing to interfere. Certain sizes and load applications have bolt in supports for strength while others require only a rubber hammer to tap the components into position. Our Low Profile series gives the user the lowest cost multi level shelving available! Using standard Rivet Beams and configuration for top and bottom levels the Low Profile shelving series adds the levels in between using a front and back beam that is only 1 3/8” thick. This allows more room for material to be stored on a standard height unit. Low Profile series is available in widths of 36”, 42”, and 48” with depths up to 24”. Our standard decking for both styles is 5/8” particle board. This is optional, should the customer want to cut shipping costs and buy the decking locally or want to use another type of decking. For customers with very high shelving loads please inquire about our “Channel Beam” construction. We also specialize in file storage boxes. Sometimes called Archive Boxes or BANKERS BOX® storage boxes we have a special size unit ( 69” wide x 30” deep x 84” tall) that can hold 80 boxes per unit!
Our steel shelving manufactured in Houston begins with high strength steel ( 50,000 psi test ) that is cold rolled to specified dimension. Components are formed to shape in presses capable of 150 tons of pressure. From there components are put thru a three stage washing process at the start of our modern powdercoating line. After washing they are oven dried and sent thru our Nordsen powdercoat spray booth where environmentally friendly powder coating is electrostatically applied. From there it goes to our curing oven where it spends a precise amount of time to allow the coating to bond to the components. This finish is highly resistant to scratching, fading, peeling.
We maintain a considerable inventory of shelving components. Our goal is to ship orders the same or next day. Our shelving manufacturing process allows for quick turn around to build additional material for large orders.
Our reputation is built on satisfying customers. Our quality products, friendly staff, and experience in the shelving industry guarantee your satisfaction. Please contact us with any questions you have about DIXIE WIDESPAN.
