Here are some simple steps for planning your next project:
First, determine the amount of space you are working with. this will save you time and money.Once you have the dimensions, we recommend drawing a top view. if you have a corner, insert the corner unit first. The corner unit will require 48 inches on each wall
Next, determine what you are using the space for. The uses are endless - network storage, server rack, a computer repair station. Knowing this will make it easy to configure the unit exactly how you need it
Determine the number of shelves that you need for your unit. Each shelf will require a back plate and a shelf support kit. Each of the side frame kits will require a least 2 shelves.
Determine the depth and width you want each shelf to be. Kendall Howard offers both 24" and 30" depths. We also offer following width, 36", 48", 60", 72". Square corner units are 48".
TIP: If you are assembling a larger combined unit you can reduce the number of side frames by ganging the units together. For example the fully assembled unit above shows 5 units ganged together. It only requires 6 Performance Plus side frame kits, rather than 10 side frame kits. By ganging them together you can save on the cost of each unit, and the amount of labor it takes to install them.
