Track shelving can be used for a variety of shelf systems and designs in the home or office. Track shelving for books, supplies and industrial equipment all have similar installation processes. The important difference in these systems are their weight allowances. A home or business must take into account the weight of the materials sitting on the shelves. The weight will determine the type of shelf tracking installed, plus the location on the wall.
