Shelving Systems

If you run a storage facility in London, Mississauga, or the Greater Toronto area, then there is a strong chance you need a shelving system to store boxes, cartons, bins, or totes that can be accessed easily and quickly multiple times per day. At The Material Handler, our experts know how to design the perfect shelving system with a fully customized layout for your facility in order to increase item selectivity, while attaining storage optimization and allowing room for equipment to make its way down the aisles.

Our friends at Metalware supply us with strong, economical, and efficient shelving materials that can be put together in a number of practical ways; their multitude of options for shelves, drawers, and dividers can maximize storage in any space.


Their Interlok No-Bolt design presents a strong and rigid construction that is achieved by the wedge-type combination of shelf and brackets. With the capacity to hold up to 600 pounds, Metalware shelving is amongst the strongest in the industry due to the 18 or 20 gauge cold-rolled steel used in production. The shelves are built with your choice of double bends or box-style front and back edges, complete with closed corners. The uprights are made of 16 gauge hot-rolled steel that are pre-punched, roll-formed, welded, and cut to preferred length in one continuous operation. The shelving now offers multiple hooking points, which can be adjusted to 1” with no interference.

Because high assembly costs for shelving are generally the number-one culprit , Interlok No-Bolt is the preferred choice—its assembly and reassembly are remarkably easy, so it eliminates the methods of installation used by our competitors. Those methods have become obsolete because Metalware has found a way to remove nuts, bolts, and tools from the equation, cutting the assembly time by 80%.


Since the Interlok No-Bolt system is installed in an upright position, there is no additional space needed while assembling, and therefore less labour required. Once set up, the shelving component can be easily rearranged or displaced without completely dismantling the entire unit, all thanks to its ingenuous design.

Two-Tier Mezzanine

If you’re thinking about moving to a new facility due to a lack of space, think again. The Material Handler can provide you with a shelving system that functions on a two-tier mezzanine, ultimately maximizing the use of existing areas. By installing a boltless floor channel and flooring and connecting them to stairs and landings, we can increase your floor space by a significant amount.
