New Quadadjust shelving from Eagle makes shelf changes a snap
By Laura Aiken
March 4, 2009, Clayton, DE — Eagle has introduced a new
shelving product that the company reports allow for even more flexibility,
functionality and value for the foodservice industry.
The company’s latest introduction, QuadAdjust Shelving,
features a special design that makes it easier than ever to change shelf
configurations to meet individual needs. Eagle's familiar, numerically
calibrated, grooved posts and tapered split-sleeves combine with a patent-pending
"collar" design to make shelf reconfiguration easier than ever –
without the need for tools and without disassembling the entire unit. The
inventive collar also makes adjusting a shelf's height or completely removing a
shelf just as easy.
The new QuadAdjust Shelving incorporates Eagle's patented QuadTruss
design. Four horizontal truss wires provide maximum load-bearing weight per
shelf. Unique pincer-type design, with reinforcing mat wire between the two top
truss wires, distributes shelf load weight evenly, thereby reducing stress and
strain on the welds. Deflection tests conducted by Eable under laboratory
conditions show that the shelving is up to 25 per cent stronger than competing
wire shelving products. Eagle's new QuadAdjust Shelving is offered in most
popular sizes and finishes.
