Sliding Reference Shelf (if requested)
9.0 Reference shelves are formed of 18 gauge steel and are attached to the underside of shelf supports, where needed. A shelf extends 9" from the face of the shelf. Reference shelves operate on ball bearing extension slides and can be mounted alone on single face units or, back to back on double face units.
10.0 Reinforcements are formed of 13 gauge hot rolled pickled steel. Heavy shelf reinforcements are 13/64" high with two 29/64" deep slots to fit over the short leg of a heavy shelf support. Thin shelf reinforcements are 39/64" high with two pair of 23/64" deep slots. The inner and outer slots fit over the short leg of the double and single shelf support, respectively.
11.0 All steel parts are thoroughly cleaned in a multi-stage washer. An integral part of this stage is the application of a phosphate coating. This results in superior paint adhesion and rust resistance. The finest grade of industrial enamel is applied with electrostatic spraying equipment. This insures complete and even coverage. Coverage is capable of withstanding a minimum of 250 hour salt spray test per (ASTM) method number B-117 in a salt spray chamber as well as all normal resistance of a quality finish.
