Instantly create more vertical storage space with Lyon’s 8000 Series 8340S open steel shelving starter unit. This 4 foot shelving unit is ideal for storing items where high visibility is a concern. Our industrial open shelving allows you to see from either side. This 5 shelf metal shelving unit offers great storage space for light parts and aerosols as well as heavier items like tools or safety supplies. Our tall open shelving unit is ideal for use as either a warehouse or commercial metal shelving unit. We offer our industrial steel shelving with a durable powder coat finish available in Dove Gray. The powder coat paint finish will help protect your steel shelving from everyday use.

Open Shelving Upright Assemblies

Each 8340S open steel shelving starter includes two upright assemblies. An upright assembly consists of two t-post uprights as well as a cross side brace. We make the t-post uprights out of durable hot-rolled 16-gauge steel. The side braces are made of 12-gauge steel. A 12-gauge cross brace on the back helps prevent lateral sway. Both the side and back braces give this steel shelving unit the support and stability it needs.

Adjustable Steel Shelves

The 8340S open steel shelving starter includes 5 shelves with your choice of shelf gauge. Our 22-gauge medium-duty shelves provide ideal storage for most small parts and light weight items. Choose either our 20-gauge heavy-duty or 18-gauge extra heavy-duty shelves for storing heavier items such as tool boxes and large parts. The patented box design of our industrial metal shelves provides added strength in both the front and rear of the shelf. The lapped and welded corners provide extra strength and durability.

Each shelf also includes four shelf clips. Simply set the clips at the desired height and set your shelves in place of your 8340S open steel shelving. Easily adjust the shelf clips on 1-1/2-inch vertical centers. Since the clips install without tools it’s easy to adjust your shelf spacing when your storage needs change.

Assembly and Installation

The 8340S open steel shelving starter ships unassembled. This 5 shelf steel shelving unit assembles easily in the field. Use this starter unit either alone or combine it with other 12-inch-deep 8000 series add-on sections to create a long run of industrial metal shelving. Lyon strongly recommends that each steel shelving unit be properly anchored. Make sure to install your 5 tier metal shelf plumb and level before anchoring it to the floor and/or wall. Use the Upright-to-Floor Angle and a Concrete Wedge Anchor to anchor your uprights to the floor. Anchoring your shelving helps prevent tipping and allows you to take full advantage of the weight capacities.

Additional Shelves and Accessories

Expand your storage options further by adding extra Shelves to your 8340S open steel shelving unit. Keep your shelving unit organized by adding Shelf Bins to keep small loose parts together. Easily add Label Holders to the front of each shelf to ensure items are placed back in their proper spot. This also helps inventory control to see when stock levels are running low.
