Support Poles Features
Rakks support poles are made of extruded aluminum with channels designed to incorporate Rakks Shelf Support Brackets. Poles are available in 5 profiles to meet a wide range of storage and shelving applications. The infinite adjustability of shelf brackets eliminates the need to level or shim poles. Anodized aluminum finishes provide a clean and chemically resistant finish.
