Industrial shelving units are a critical part of any business who is trying to keep large amounts of inventory organized. Because different companies have different storage requirements, many companies choose to use custom industrial shelving.

There are numerous advantages to using custom industrial shelving units. In this article, we will take a look at the top ten benefits that custom industrial shelving from BILT Industries provides your business.

Professional engineering

Capacity, space, and workflow efficiencies are all factors to consider when designing large-scale warehouse custom shelving units. As such, it’s essential that you choose to work with a company that has a background in designing custom industrial shelving systems.

With dozens or hundreds of storage units, the warehouse layout design may appear overwhelming, but the engineers at BILT Industries are more than capable of handling the job. Our engineers can design a storage solution that will meet the needs of your business and accommodate future expansion.

Maximize space

One of the most significant advantages of custom industrial shelving units is that they are fantastic space savers. Industrial shelving units are specifically designed to assist facilities by making the most out of all available warehouse space, but they can also help you save space on your floor.

Because industrial shelves can be stacked on top of one another, custom industrial shelving allows you to store more products, make the most of the available floor and storage space, and ensure that stored products and materials are accessible securely and conveniently.

Optimize your warehouse

When choosing which industrial shelves to use for your warehouse, it’s critical that they will work in collaboration with any existing infrastructure. With our custom industrial shelving units, that’s something that you will never have to worry about.

BILT Industries’s shelving is catered directly to your existing warehouse floor plan and provides a long-term return on investment. Most of all, our knowledgeable staff understands what works best in your industry and can tailor solutions to meet the specific requirements of your business.

Improved efficiency and convenience

All warehouse facilities must make efficient use of space, and one of the most significant benefits of using custom industrial shelving in your warehouse is convenience. Luckily, our shelving has the advantage of being very space-efficient.

You can make the most of your available space by using industrial shelves, by allowing users to have shelves at various levels, giving them the freedom to store items in multiple ways. Not only does it make certain products, supplies, and other items more accessible, but it also makes it easier for your employees to find what they’re looking for.

Customized to your needs

Product picking and distribution operations will run more smoothly if you have enough space for everything you store in your warehouse. Thanks to our custom industrial shelving units, your material handling requirements will be fully met.

In today’s e-commerce world, most warehouses require same-day picking and packing, so it’s critical that your warehouse is well-organized and that products are stored so that you can pick and ship as quickly as possible. With custom industrial shelving designed to accommodate your specific product storage needs, product movement throughout your warehouse will be much improved.


For warehouses with large storage capacities, custom industrial shelving is a cost-effective solution to their warehouse needs. Your warehouse can never go wrong with industrial shelving, and they will provide you with the extra space you require without breaking the bank.

Better organization

With custom industrial shelving, you can keep your inventory and your entire warehouse well organized so that all of your inventory is visible and easily accessible. This ensures that the processes in your operations run smoothly with little to no downtime and frees up more space for other operations.

This is highly profitable for delivery and logistics companies, as they can store twice or even three times the amount of goods that they could before installing an industrial shelving system. With the use of custom industrial shelving units, accessing stored products is simple and efficient, avoiding direct contact with heavy items and reducing the risk of accidents.

Improved Safety

Any warehouse facility must prioritize employee safety, and custom industrial shelving is a great way to store and organize goods in your facility while also lowering the risk of workplace accidents. However, even if they are designed to carry heavy loads, you must carefully select the appropriate type based on its weight and load capacity.

With our custom industrial shelving units, you can rest assured that your shelves are safe for your warehouse because they are made of high-quality materials.


One of the most significant benefits of custom industrial shelving units is that they can withstand temperature extremes as well as the typical wear and tear of forklifts and order pickers.

With custom industrial shelves, your shelving will take the dents of nearby machinery much more gracefully because of their galvanized or painted finish. Additionally, paint is applied evenly and throughout the custom shelving unit, resulting in a smooth, aesthetically pleasing finish.

Improved Visibility

Last but certainly not least, our custom industrial shelving increases product visibility. Because it focuses on product placement and management, custom industrial shelving units make products more accessible and make retrieval easier and more efficient. As such, custom industrial shelving allows order pickers and forklift operators to see what they need when they need it.
