Dunnage Racks, Shelving Units and Wall Storage

Do I Need Dunnage Racks, Shelving Units or Wall Storage?

The three primary types of storage are dunnage racks, shelving units and wall shelving. All three provide excellent options for creating a customized storage scheme, but are most effective when combined.

Dunnage Racks

  • Low, very strong shelves intended to keep large items at least 12 inches of the floor.
  • Sold individually, but can be linked together end-to-end, back-to-back or stacked.
  • Ideal for keeping bulk items off the ground.
  • Don’t provide a lot of clearance between the shelves when stacked.

Dunnage Rack

Consider Dunnage Racks if:

Heavy Bag

You have very large items that need to be staged or moved frequently.

Dunnage Storage

Your storage area is not permanent and needs to be cleared out for other uses.

Shelving Units

  • Rectangular blocks with multiple shelves.
  • Can be combined to create highly versatile custom storage.
  • Are typically around six feet tall with three to five shelves.
  • In many units all or part of the shelves in a unit can be moved or removed based on the amount of space you need.
  • Can’t store quite as much weight as dunnage racks, but the adjustable shelves allow large items to be stored on multiple shelves.
  • Are usually purchased in sets of standard units or add-on units.
  • Are safest when anchored in place, making them less mobile than dunnage racks.
