Shelving Do’s and Don’ts

Do – think about safety: it’s good to know the type, material and structure of the shelving you are using so that you know the safest way to use it. Simple things like how sections connect together and come apart are necessary to know to be able to work with the shelving safely.

Do – think about your products: what will you be using the shelving for? Will it be to display single items or products? What size and weight are the products generally? Or will it be a storage shelf and need to carry the weight of heavy books? All of these questions are important to think about when selecting your shelving. A specialist company will also be able to advise you on the right shelf for you, so if in doubt, ask a professional.

Don’t – overload shelves: not only is clutter bad for organizing stock and visual merchandising, but it can also be dangerous for shelving. Depending on the structure and type of shelving, they can take different weight loads. Never overload shelves with too much stock or products – keep it to a minimum for safety and visibility.

Remember, people shop with their eyes. That’s why the way something is displayed and the shelving it is on can have a big impact on sales. What a customer sees has a huge influence on what they purchase, particularly with thinks like attractive packaging and visual merchandising.

It’s been proven that products with attractive packaging sell much faster than those with unappealing packaging, regardless of which product is better quality and better value.

The fact that packaging can be more important than the product itself on first view makes visual merchandising and the selection of shelving all the more important.
