Light duty racks are generally designed for the placement or storage of light and small items. The height of each unit is adjustable depending on the requirements, and each layer can hold up to a 100kilograms.

Light duty racking is built according to individual requirements, and the design and style are easy to customize, dismantle or move.


Every warehouse or industry comes with its requirement in terms of shelving or racking systems. Some industries manufacture heavyweight items, others lightweight while others have medium-weighted goods. The choice of the shelving system depends on the weight of things they want to place or store.

Light duty racking is applicable in many storage solutions such as in industrial offices, supermarket storage of commodities and electronic items, storage boxes and archives and general indoor storage of items. It is also commonly useful in placing or storing data files.

It is stable, safe and the most affordable racking system. It also has good shape and proves useful in the electronic industry for storing delicate small and medium-sized parts.

Small and light-weighted supermarket items can use lightweight racking systems. The stress or capacity area is also useful in the storage of heavyweight items as the stress in the area is more stable and uniform, but it is ideal for medium weight items.

It offers more visibility and makes the items easily accessible.

The structure of light duty racking systems

Light duty racking systems come in three broad categories. One is the boltless rivet racking system, the second one is the European light racking system, and the third one is slotted angle steel racking system.

Angle steel racking is most common in supermarket stores as its carrying capacity is enough to handle small items and commodities.


Light duty racking has double side punches of equal angle steels with the hole occurring in a parallel line of 50mm. The upright holes are useful in hooking up the laminate.

Shelves/ racks

When building light-duty racks, the Eonmetall steel plates are bent and modified on the four sides according to the requirements.


The installer connects the columns and steel shelves by using a quick-release bayonet pin and a triangle-shaped fixing component.

The finishing

After the installation of all the components of the shelves, all the units are given a proper finish by either grinding, phosphating, pickling, drying, automatic powder electrostatic spraying, or through other processes to finish the structure.

The final structure is usually smooth with an aesthetic appeal.  You can adjust the laminate up and down which offers convenience for assembling and disassembly.

Each layer of angle steel storage can hold up to 100kg because it is a light-duty storage system.

The bottom line

When it comes to light-duty racking systems, they are available in different styles, design and clours and offers you a variety of choices, however, choose one according to your weight to leverage on the efficiency of the shelving system.
