Click this button, Option 1: Fill The Room if you are going to fit a specific
number of shelving units in a single room, or you want to fill the room with as
many shelving units as will fit.
Click this button, Option 2: Starters & Adders if you know how many starter
and adder units you need. No drawings will be generated for estimates based on the
number of starters and adders.
Click this button, Option 3: Single Row if you want to fit a single row of
shelving between two walls. You will be asked for the distance between the walls.
Adding a center support increases the capacity of a shelf. It also keeps the beams from twisting as a load is applied to the shelf.
When you add center supports, one center support per shelf is included, except for 96" wide shelves. 96" wide shelves
will have two center supports per shelf.
Selecting this option will add wood decking to the shelving units. 5/8" underlayment grade particle board is what we would typically provide. Contact Cisco-Eagle
if you need an alternate decking material.
Cost Saving Tip
Particleboard is particularly dense and heavy. Because of this it can add significantly to the shipping costs. If you can purchase the wood decking locally,
it may be more cost effective than purchasing the decking from us and shipping it to your location.
Contact Cisco-Eagle if you require greater capacities than those shown.
Nominal Sizes vs Actual Size
While boltless shelving is specified in even inch increments, the actual size of the units is 1/2" greater in width, and 1/2" greater in depth. In addition,
when you are using starters and adders in a row there is an additional 1/4" growth between units. The extra half inch in width and depth
also means that you do not need to cut wood decking to a special size.
This growth is accounted for by the estimator. When you submit your specification, the estimator will provide a floor plan view with growth included in the
overall length of a row, rounded up to the nearest inch.
rows may fit more shelving in a room.
If you are placing 12", 18" or 24" deep units back to
back in the room, you can achieve cost savings by using a single
24", 36", or 48" deep unit instead.
In the example above with five shelf units, you
require half as many posts and beams using a single deep unit. This
saves on material costs, freight costs, and labor
