You’ve successfully completed stage one in your journey to storage success: purchasing your Tennsco shelving. You’re ready to get your shelving assembled and put it to use, but you’re not sure where to start. After all, there are a lot of components to Tennsco shelving systems, and things can get a bit confusing, particularly if you’re not accustomed to shelving assembly. No matter though, the team at AK Material Handling Systems has put together a simple, step-by-step instructional blog and video detailing how to assemble Tennsco low profile shelving. For you visual learners, we’ve got the how-to video posted below. If you’re ready to get started, read on!

Your first step when assembling your Tennsco shelving unit will be to organize the individual shelving components. This may seem like a given, but it’s a step that’s frequently overlooked. Failing to organize the individual shelving components prior to assembly can lead to a cluttered mess, as well as confusion about which parts are which. In addition, organizing the parts of your shelving will give you a better visual as to how they’ll eventually be put together.

The next step will be to connect two (EUR) upright posts together with two (DRS) end supports. To do this, you’re going to need two people. One person will stand holding one EUR upright post in each hand. The other person will start by inserting one side of the DRS end support into the slots at the bottom of one of the EUR upright posts. Then, they will do the same with the other side of the DRS end support and other upright post. After that, they will repeat the process at the top of the upright posts. At this point, one end of the shelving system will be complete. The entire process will then be repeated with the other end of the shelving.

The third step in the Tennsco shelving assembly process will be to connect the two ends of the shelving system with your left-to-right shelf supports. This step is similar to the first step; simply line up the end of the shelf support at the same height on the upright post as the end support to ensure an even shelf. Then, do the same with the other left-to-right shelf support. At this point, each left-to right shelf support will be connected to one end of the shelving. After this, you’ll want to do the same at the other end, so you’ll have the frame ready for your bottom shelf level.

Repeat the previous steps with the top shelving level to stabilize the unity, and then with the remaining shelving level. After that, place the shelving boards on the level.
