As the name suggests, the shelves are the foundation of every shelving unit. That is why the strong and sturdy 42" x 14" Galvanized Steel Super Erecta® Flat Solid Shelf (1442FG) from Metro is so important. It is made from thick 18-gague galvanized steel and features two-fold thickness along every edge and corner for improved rigidity and strength. The shelf is also constructed with a complete ship’s edge around the entire shelf to help contain spills and improve overall sanitation. Additionally, the shelf measures 42 inches wide and can support up to an incredible 800 pounds.
