Why Metalware? Metalware has been making steel shelving for well over 50 years. It’s the only thing we make, enough said. Making only the one product allows us to focus on making some of the strongest and most ecinomical shelving on the market today.

  • Metalware uses one style of post, the T-Post. No angles to assemble, no worrying about getting it wrong during the install.
  • We’ve recently added a box beam shelf. Hey, better late than never, right? Less steel, less money, with more capacity. Can’t argue with that!
  • Installers love putting up Metalware. The compression fit of the shelf and clip allow for quick and accurate installations.
  • Open style or closed style of shelving are available. Our end pannel assemblies are welded, not bolted, saving valuable assembly time. 

Metalware Steel Shelving is ideal for Archival Storage of boxes or X-rays, High Rise picking applications, Tool rooms, and of course, general storage.
