THE DIFERANCE BETWEEN OUR STANDARD AND SLIMLINE SHELVES

ADD AS MANY AS YOU LIKE

Upright Sizes

Effortlessly shift and add shelves to your existing units.

Using our double rowed uprights, you can add as many bays as your space allows!

USE MULTIPLE DEPTHS

Our reducer shelves allows you to add various depths to your units on either side!

Reducer shelves are used either on the left or the right of a unit to reduce the width by stepping back from the front line of the overall unit. The reverse can be used to create a straight front line to the overall unit and stepping in from the back line on either the left or right of a unit to allow to pass obstructions or a step in the wall the unit is up against. These reducer widths are in 100mm increments.

BACKING & SIDES

Back panels are used to close off the back bays of a unit.

Side panels are used to close off the side bays of a unit.

Wood shelving can in many cases be more economical than steel shelving. It can take a substantial amount of with and unlike steel, it won't buckle under pressure.

TECHNICAL UPDATE

The manufacturing process of our uprights has had a subtle change since October 2017. Prior to this, the measurement between holes was 130mm and since October 2017 this measurement has changed to 128mm. The reason for this is that the machinery used to drill multiple holes at once conforms to the building standard module 32. This means that any measurement used is divisible by 32 (32 x 4 = 128) and the machinery is adjustable in steps of 32mm. Lastly, our shelves, although indicated as 900mm in length they are 895mm to be precise.

This change only affects existing Mak-Rak customers (before October 2017) if additions want to be made to an existing installation. The difference of 2mm seems very small but the longer the upright the greater the difference becomes between holes as you get closer to the top and the new uprights are slightly shorter. For example, if you take a UP16, the first holes at the bottom will be in line but every hole after that accumulates by 2mm so by the time you reach hole 16, the last hole of the new upright will be 30mm lower than the old upright. The overall length will also be 30mm shorter.

Ideally, if you have existing Mak-Rak and want to extend, then leave the existing as is and extend by adding separate bays of the new sizes. If you really want to physically attach your new bays to your existing unit? Let us know so that specific uprights can be manually drilled from blanks to match the OLD. There is a charge for this. If youre not sure how to proceed then please do not hesitate to give us a call or Contact Us via the link on our site and we will gladly assist and advise where necessary.
