Widespan is North American Steel's most advanced and modular shelving system, with four major applications:


Most shelving systems stop at 4 foot wide. North American Steel Widespan covers from 4 foot to 8 foot or longer with clip in front mounted beams on 2 “adjustability. The ¾ “step beams allow a variety of shelves: wire mesh shelves, (1” x 21/2” mesh) particle board shelves, corrugated steel decks and metal drop in panels.


Similar to racking, widespan frames can span the total distance of back to back bays in the frames and shelves can span the depth of back to back bays. Wire mesh dividers are back stops and can divide the common shelf level or can be easily removed for large items.

3. VNA Shelving

Due to its high capacity post structure, VNA shelving can be doubled for added capacity. The frames can be designed for back to back adjustability. Ideal for picker trucks up to 30 foot high.


Most shelving systems can be designed to 2 level platform while wide span with this double post can be designed up to 4 levels. Storage platform/catwalks are ideal for utilizing the maximum height of new warehouses up to 40 feet high with multi level floor ranging from 8 ft to 10 ft in height with the first floor being high volume picks and upper floors for the slower moving items.
