Clipper® - Industrial Shelving

Clipper Shelving features Hi-Performance® Box Beam Shelves, which offer an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio for industrial settings. Clipper Shelving offers a wide variety of sizes and capacities too. This gives you the flexibility to provide top quality storage for a simple back room area, up to a sophisticated multi-level or high-rise application.

At the heart of the Clipper® Shelving System is the ingenious Penco Clipper Clip. It is easily installed, holds the shelf firmly in place, can be repositioned at any time, and actually helps make the shelving more rigid.

Clipper open type shelving is the basic and most economical shelving design for general purpose use. Backs and sides are open with sections stabilized by sway braces. Closed type shelving units are covered on three sides with steel panels to provide stability, protection and to promote cleanliness of stored items. Optional locking doors may be added for greater security.
