Cantilever Flexible Shelving

Providing users with a solution that can be fitted with exposed locking or concealed caster options, Spacesaver’s Cantilever Flexible Shelving is designed to be reconfigured, relocated, expanded, or mounted on Spacesaver’s compact mobile systems as your space needs change over time. Flexible Shelving is offered in a range of design styles and sizes manufactured to accommodate the fit and function of your operation and the specific needs of those it serves.

• Enables spaces to be easily reconfigured on the fly
• Frees up valuable space for events
• Allows alternate uses such as meetings, classes, training, makerspaces, and more

• Customizable end panel finishes available in a variety of materials (commonly laminate, wood, acrylic, and resin)
• Ability to match custom finishes between stand-alone/static, on-casters, and on-mobile shelving for a cohesive and complimentary look
• Helps to create a warm and welcoming space for students and visitors to “unplug” from technology and browse for physical books and other collections


• Spacesaver’s Flexible Shelving Caster Bases passed:
» Rigorous internal cart stability testing per BIFMA X5.9-2012 Section 9 standards
» Maximum load testing - proving Spacesaver’s caster base design will robustly support an 810 lb. point-load or 1,620 lbs. total load per 72”W caster base, which represents the maximum loading scenario for a single caster base
• Maintenance-free solution: Aside from routine cleaning and dusting, feel confident in Spacesaver’s Flexible Shelving knowing we use premium materials
• Our Flexible Shelving solution offers lifetime limited coverage on shelving and 5 years limited coverage on wheels

• Spacesaver’s Flexible Shelving units maximize precious funding – delivering a solution that is quick and easy to move to accommodate a variety of alternative programming
• Reduces institutional cost per square foot by enabling space to be used for many purposes - not solely static shelving


• Reduce: Our durable steel shelving solution comes with a lifetime limited warranty
• Reuse: Designed to be customizable and configurable, shelving can accommodate a myriad use as needs change over time
• Recycle: When shelving is no longer needed, the durable steel construction is 100% recyclable

• Flexible shelving is most commonly selected at counter-height to maintain line-of-sight for a safe, open, and welcoming environment
