SHOP-Smart Shelving has transformed the retail displays of many of our customers. Like Miena Village Store, Complete Stationery, Grove Store, and Modern Musician.  These and other customers appreciated the choice of practical styles and sizes that are matched perfectly with their businesses allowing them to display their products to their best advantage and help maximise sales. The Gondola or Cantilever Shelving is the most popular variant.

Essential Features: Uprights and Base Legs

The strength of the SHOP-Smart Gondola or Cantilever Shelving starts with the superior Upright Posts and the Clip-On Base Legs

Single and Double Sided

The Gondola Shelving has heavy duty Base Legs that clip in to the Uprights to create heavy duty Upright Posts. This clip-in feature eliminates the need to have separate welded single and double sided uprights. Freight costs are reduced. And the posts can be easily converted from single sided to double sided and back again should the need arise.

The Uprights and Base Legs are readily available in several sizes to suit most applications. The standard 160mm high base leg is the most frequently specified. High Base Legs are available for some applications like the Supermarket Shelving shown elsewhere on this website. All Base Legs have adjustable height feet.

The Uprights are slotted on one or two sides. Shelf Brackets and Back Panels clip into these slots. The specifications for the Uprights exceed industry standards. The cross section dimensions are 80x30mm and the wall thickness is 2mm. Each slot is 18x28mm and the pitch of the slots (distance from the top of one slot to the top of the next slot) is 50mm. This shelving and its components are not compatible with those of other, similar looking gondola shelving systems.

Back Panel Options

Although the shelving can be assembled without Back Panels this is rarely done. The Back Panels prevent merchandise from falling off the back of the shelves and are used to increase the merchandising flexibility of the shelving. Select from three styles: plain metal (decorative), metal pegboard (for hang-sell applications) or metal Slatwall (with all of the advantages of traditional MDF Slatwall).

Plain Metal Back Panels are used for applications where all of the merchandise is displayed on shelves. Volcano-style Punched Metal Pegboard Back Panels are specified where some or all of the merchandise is displayed on hooks. Brochure holders and small plastic containers can also be used on these panels. The metal Slatwall Back Panels are compatible with many more accessories including clip-in acrylic shelves, clothing arms, baskets and specialise accessories like picture hanging hooks

Colour options:

Custom Colours

The Upright Posts, Back Panels and Metal Shelves are readily available in matt black or gloss white in most sizes and styles. The Wire Shelves are galvanised.

Subject to minimum order quantities all components can be powdercoated in other colours to help you create a unique "look" for your store or to reinforce your corporate identity. Select from most standard Dulux powdercoat colours. Not every component of your shelving needs to be powdercoated in your custom colour. For example, just the Upright Posts, Base Legs and Base Shelves can feature the custom colour with the Back Panels and other shelves left as standard white or black. This makes it easier, and cheaper, to add a few extra shelves at a later stage.

Shelf Options

Greater weight carrying capacity and more display flexibility are the features that make these gondola shelves the best available.

Melamine Board Shelves for Gondoila Shelving Image

Board Shelves

Select from heavy duty sheet metal or wire mesh shelves in a range of sizes and colours. Or, for special projects, we can supply compatible, decorative, melamine board shelves.

The wire mesh shelves are the preferred option for supermarkets, convenience stores, hardware and similar businesses that require super-strong, easy to clean shelves. Typically a metal base shelf is used to hide any dust and debris that may have accumulated on the floor.

Metal shelves add a softer touch to the ambience of the shelving system and are frequently specified by gift and homewares shops, pharmacies, vet clinics, and licenced post offices that do not want the "supermarket look".

Melamine board shelves can be custom made in a range of plain colours, textures and woodgrains subject to minimum order quantities. They are not as strong as the wire and metal shelves but will add a new dimension to the displays of clothing businesses, premium gift stores, sporting shops and selected displays in gourmet food stores. Melamine board shelves are 20mm thick for extra strenghr. This chunky look is admired by many.

When used on Cantilever Gondola Shelving these shelves have a maximum evenly distributed weight carrying capacity in excess of 100Kg.

Multi-purpose Multi-angle Brackets

The metal shelves have "top hat" style reinforcing on the underside. Wire shelves have reinforcing steel slats. The shelf brackets for both the metal and wire shelves are multi-functional. One design fits both types. The brackets can be used flat or sloping at 15 or 30 degrees. Shelf fronts of several styles are available to prevent your products from falling off the shelves.

Gondola Shelving Hinged Data Strips

The SHOP-Smart Shelving System has its own unique Data Strips for shelf edge labelling. They are not adhesive but simply clip on to the label plates of the shelves. No messy adhesive tapes. Easy to remove or change when the need arrives. The Data Strips are hinged so they flip ot of the way when merchandise is taken from the shelf below.

Accessory options:

Both the metal and wire shelves can be supplied with optional shelf fronts and shelf dividers. Select from chromed wire or polycarbonate plastic. Additional spring-loaded pushers are available to automatically front-face the stock.
