Shelving racks

Shelving racks are designed for warehouses for the storage of primarily light parts which are manipulated by hand during storage. They are also essential for archives, file rooms, libraries, in laboratories, offices and on sales floors.

So that we meet your requirements for storage or archival to the maximum extent, we offer high-quality professional rack systems.

The Variant FL and FZ rack system

The Variant FL and Variant FZ systems are screwless rack systems thought through to the tiniest detail. The rack is composed of a frame and shelves, with the frame consisting of two sides joined by an appropriate number of cross-pieces. Each side is fitted on the bottom with a plastic or metal foot. The shelves are designed as self-supporting panels of the appropriate length and width, affixed to the rack frame by hooks. The stability of the rack assembly is ensured by a cross brace.

Variant Shelves are often used for storing archives. For this purpose, the rack system has the following features:

  • shelf depth from 250mm
  • an often used shelf depth is 350mm - for storing documents in stacks
  • adjustable up to 20mm
  • hooks recessed into the shelves to allow use of the full shelf length
  • many accessories for increased comfort
  • weight-bearing capabilities of the shelves from 90kg to 220kg

Accessories: The Variant Shelving System offers full comfort: each shelf may be fitted with a backstop, reinforcement for increased loadbearing or shelf dividers. Slide-out shelves, sliding drawers, map holders, etc., may be used instead of shelves in the rack. The rack may then be fitted with a back wall or dividing walls (with double-sided design), sliding or opening doors or a solid frame, all in a variety of colours.


The two types of shelving rack differ only in terms of colour. See the following table.
