Why Choose Metro Wire Rack Shelving?  

Metro shelving stands apart from our storage shelving competitors in quality and breadth of line. This is because we continue to focus on operational excellence and total quality. Our wire products are highly customizable and can be built to the specifications of any facility, allowing for innumerable options.  

Strength & Durability  

The proven strength and durability of our wire shelving are a function of its design. The post and collar design provides a full 360-degree capture of the post for maximum stability and durability. A 48” long wire shelf can hold up to 800 pounds safely. 

Super Erecta Pro and Metroseal epoxy shelving units are embedded with Microban antimicrobial product protection to help keep the product cleaner between cleanings. Metroseal also helps prevent red rust and corrosion.   


Wire rack shelving ledges are designed to keep your products securely in place and prevent them from falling off the shelves. In addition, you can use our wire rack dividers to create separate storage compartments for better organization.  

To prevent items from falling out of your unit's side, we recommend using Metro's wire shelving end panels. For added convenience, we also offer wire shelving label holders that provide visual indicators of where a particular product is stored on the shelf. 


In addition to our primary finishes and styles, we offer more specialized finishes for retail and grocery applications. Metro also provides a variety of wire shelving parts and accessories to enhance organization and efficiency in our customers’ processes. 

Beyond the different materials, our wire shelving also comes in a range of designs and sizes to suit your storage needs. The most common option is free-standing shelves, but we also offer wall-mounted and hanging wire shelves. 

You can also choose between stationary models and mobile wire carts. Our stationary metal racks are adjustable in 1” increments and provide stability. Additionally, standard center mobile posts work with casters and create a mobile storage solution.
