Modular metal shelving is excellent in terms of flexibility. You can configure shelving in infinite ways. But you need to keep quality in mind, and safety.
Here is something I think is a must to post. The shelving is from a major European and global manufacturer. It is a mono-branded display so probably the designer of this solution wanted to make it easy to put inside boxes and to ship in small quantities to diverse locations.
But what about safety?
The upright connection, as it is normally called, is as long as the main upright. There are no screws nor locking clips. The vertical column holding all the un balanced weight is cut into two halves and is sharply inclined In both axis. Very dangerous.
In Italy we started a process to create a norm for ruling shelving that goes into public places, like retail environment. There is obviously a lot to be done! The customer must have enjoyed the look and the practicality of the solution, but safety is under doubt.
This display is for dog food. Deep shelves and heavy bags require a strong solution. The designer here only kept in mind look and cost efficiency but the result is risky for every consumer going shopping.
This is an invitation for critical analysis of shelving solutions proposed in the industry.
