Wenger GearBoss Shelving

Wenger's GearBoss wall- and floor- mounted metal storage shelving system is part of the GearBoss® family of durable athletic specialties and equipment. GearBoss provides rugged industrial grade athletic apparel and equipment storage, featuring adjustable cantilevered shelving and apparel hangers, work surfaces, and security lockers. Uprights and shelf brackets are capable of 1000 lb (454 kg) loading per 4-foot-wide section. The clear space below the upper shelving can be coordinated with Wenger's GearBoss® SportCart for efficient use of the floor space.

GearBoss is an equipment storage solution designed to transform the athletic equipment room into an efficient, program support space that reduces the square footage required for your storage area. The modular system features accessories specific for the needs of bulky athletic equipment such as helmets and shoulder pads.

Additional Specifier's Notes for Wenger Metal Storage Shelving

Substitution Reviews: When reviewing substitution requests for other products for compliance with this specification, Wenger recommends particular attention to the following issues:

Strength of hardware fastening. Failure of these components is the most common field service issue among alternative products. Wenger hardware mounting maximizes use of welded and through-bolted connections.

Replaceable construction for doors and shelves. These most frequently- damaged items are easily replaced in Wenger metal storage shelving, and are engineered to prevent damage to their supporting components.

Warranty terms and conditions: Wenger offers the most warranty protection available in the industry. We do not make exceptions for the normal levels of wear and tear common to learning environments. Our only such stated exception is failure resulting from vandalism or uncontrolled moisture or humidity.

Coordination with Drawings: Make sure you coordinate the following:

Size and configuration of shelf units and overall size of shelf openings.

Location and size of shelves, work surfaces, garment hangers, and other components.

Location of other building elements, including light switches and power outlets, HVAC supplies and returns, and sprinkler heads, in relation to locations of shelves, to avoid conflicts.

Typical mounting details and locations for blocking in framed walls.
