Method of assembling boltless rivet shelves

Boltless rivet shelving is an efficient, economical and easy to assemble type of storage solution in many applications. It is common for businesses that operate garages or warehouses to store products, gear and industrial tools. Aceally boltless shelving is available in a variety of sizes and designs.



Why do you need boltless racks? 


You should use boltless racks because improper racking in your place of business can quickly bring about a mess and confusion of tools or products. It can be difficult to have controlled inventory when you don’t have the proper shelving. Boltless shelving will allow you to display frequently used or selected items and can also help you spot problems such as overstock.


Boltless shelving will also work to maximize your space, so you don’t have to worry about costly storage moves or expansions. This shelving strategy will help you optimize vertical and horizontal storage space efficiently, so you don’t have to worry about space.


Boltless shelving is stable and easy to assemble. Depending on the type and application you need, there are two main types of boltless shelving: large span shelving and regular boltless shelving. Large span shelving is designed to be more robust and also has a higher weight capacity. Conventional boltless shelving has a smaller capacity and smaller dimensions than large span. Both types of boltless shelving are much better than conventional metal shelving.


Another benefit of using this type of storage system is that it fits your plan. You can always expand the capacity of the system to help you store more products or tools in the future. If you anticipate an increase in sales in the near future, perhaps this storage option would be a better choice than metal storage.


Boltless shelving is even easier to disassemble because there are no bolts involved, but rather beams and plates inserted into different rods. All components of the shelving system can be easily disassembled and reassembled in the near future, depending on your needs.


This shelving option is much cheaper than many other traditional options. Since the materials used are much lighter but weigh very heavily, you can invest in as many of these shelving options as possible.


How to assemble boltless shelves? 


The first step you should take when assembling boltless shelves is to collect the tools with the boltless shelf kit. The main tools you will need here are gloves and a rubber mallet. You should begin the process by inserting the rubber plugs, which are usually small black plugs that are inserted into the end of the blue rectangular posts.


Insert the short yellow beam into the post and use a rubber mallet or hammer to insert the beam properly for adjustment. Redesign the arrangement and make sure the hawk hook is fully locked into the pole.


Repeat for the remaining poles and that these poles should work two at a time. You now have two pole sides, each consisting of two poles joined together through the beam. You should now connect the two stacks of poles together with the longer beam. Make sure that the inserted long beam and the short beam are at the same level when inserted.


There should now be different levels on the storage shelf and the supports should be inserted at each level. Make sure that the supports are fully inserted into the arrangement. Place the HDF panels on each completed shelf level and you have completed the assembly of the rack.




Shelving or storage is a very critical component of any business, and every business owner must find the right option to support their business in the long run. If you have to invest in a storage option that cannot be easily assembled and disassembled, it can be a complete waste of time. For convenience’s sake, especially when moving from one business location to another, you should find a storage solution that can be easily removed.


Boltless shelves do not come with welded joints or bolts, which is why you find them easier to use for different purposes. These shelving options are also easier to maintain in the long run.
