Types of Shelving and Where to Use Them

All shelving can be cut to your closet measurements, usually right at the store.

SuperSlide® shelving is available in 12" and 16" depths and 4’, 6’, 8’, and 12’ lengths. SuperSlide® shelving and hardware give you the best solution to closet storage, providing both ample storage and continuous hanger slide from one end of the shelf to the other. This shelf may also be used with standard hardware for storage applications such as linen closets.


Close Mesh shelving is available in 12", 16", and 20" depths and 6’ and 12’ lengths. Close Mesh is perfect for pantry storage or for anywhere small items are stored.

Shelf & Rod, or Wardrobe, shelving is widely available in 12" and 16" depths and 4’, 6’, 8’, and 12’ lengths. Wardrobe shelving is used where both storage and hanging space is required, such as in the closet or laundry room.

How To Cut Wire Shelving

You can cut wire shelves with a hacksaw or bolt-cutter. Cut shelves in one inch increments. We recommend that you cut shelving from the end that will be closest to the walls. Center your cuts between the wires or vertical spacers on the front lip of shelf to give yourself room to attach end caps to the cut ends.
