These shelves do not just give a nice and neat look but are also strong and durable. If you want to save space then this is the best option for you and different materials used for shop shelving: like wood, steel or even glass.


End bays:

The end bays shelving is also known as the promo end bays and they sit at the right angles at the end of the shelving run. This shelving is very suitable for shops which opt to display their items traditionally and where the customers expect the sale items or the seasonal products or the clearance products. The thing that makes the end bays different from promo end bays is the inclusion of back panels on the back end of the unit which helps in keeping the products from falling down and they provide a very neat and tidy appearance from the behind and makes the back of the unit visible to the customers. They are available in wide range of configuration either with upper shelves or pegboard or slatwall retail shopfitting services.
