Metal gondola shelves are one of the most popular accessories for gondola shelving units and a great way of displaying your products in a stylish, organised fashion. The shelves come in an array of styles and sizes and are easy to attach and move so that you can create on-the-spot and effective shop displays. They are compatible with a range of different shelving models and designs, at affordable prices.
What is metal steel gondola shelving?
Metal steel gondola shelving is specially designed for gondola retail units and can be used with pegboard, grid mesh and slatwall shelving. These steel shelves have built in shelving metal strengthening bars on the underside for added strength and durability and each shelf comes with a pair of multi angle shelf brackets so that display shelving can be arranged flat or angled at 30 degrees downwards for special displays. The brackets simply clip into the uprights (posts) located on the sides of each shelving bay, so there is no need for any drilling or screwing. Angled shelves can be fitted with front fences to keep stock in place.
What can they be used for?
This metal shelving can be used to enhance any display in a variety of retail types. Shelving can be arranged in a series of rows from the top to the bottom of a display unit, on the upper area of a unit only with an alternative type of display (e.g. hangsell) underneath it, or angled with front fences to more effectively display flatter items.
Shelves have a good load capacity so are good for displaying stacks of items such as books or supermarket foodstuffs. They can also be used in more creative displays where items are more spread out, such as in gift stores or collectors’ stores. The angled shelves are great for displaying newspapers and magazines in a browser-friendly way for customers.
Gondola shelving safety:
In general, upper shelf levels can handle 60KG max of weight distributed evenly on each shelf. Heavier items such as 1.25 litre soda bottles or slabs of cans should be loaded towards the bottom of the units followed by less heavier items towards the middle height and lighter items halfway up to the top of the gondola retail units. Gondolas should NEVER be loaded top heavy as the units may become unstable and collapse.
