It’s Element-ary: FEM launches versatile shelving solution

Robust, corrosion-free and cost-effective system manufactured by Cambro.

In commercial kitchens, cold rooms and dry stores, shelving tends to be a ‘fit and forget’ decision.  Until staff need to clean it and find out it’s a hugely complicated job.  Or it starts to rust, or it warps, or it gets damaged by corrosive chemicals.  Now FEM has launched a new shelving range from American manufacturer Cambro, the Camshelving Elements Series, which is a cost-effective, versatile shelving solution that overcomes all these problems.

The Elements range is stronger than common wire shelving, so it won’t warp.  It’s made of a robust composite material that is totally rust and corrosion-free – in fact, it’s backed by a lifetime guarantee.  The shelves are comprised of a series of shelf plates that slot into place and are easy to remove for cleaning, by wiping down or they can be put through a dishwasher.  The shelf plates feature Camguard antimicrobial properties that inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria and microbes.

The shelving can withstand constant loading and off-loading of heavy products, and each shelving unit has a weight-bearing capacity of up to 910kg.

As well as being practical, Elements is very versatile in terms of layout and adjustability.  The range includes starter units, add-on units and corner units.  This allows for a huge variety of configuration, and the shelves come in a choice of widths and depths.  In addition, the corner units can be used to create u-shaped shelving systems.  This versatility makes it easy to maximise the storage capacity of any walk in, cold room or dry store.

Elements joins FEM’s established Camshelving products, the Premium and Basics ranges.  Elements is lighter and has a lower price point than the Premium range, and is more robust and versatile than Basics.  Like its sister products, Elements is very easy to assemble, without the need for tools.

The smallest Elements basic starter unit, comprises of two post kits and four vented shelf kits. Its shelves are 610mm wide and 460mm deep, while the posts are 1830mm high.
