Aurora Quik-Lok Shelving

Patented back in 1961, Aurora Quik-Lok Shelving was a brand new concept in the world of shelving. Not only was Aurora Quik-Lok Shelving strong but it was assembled with only a rubber mallet. Nuts and bolts were replaced with easy to install shelf supports. Many users choose to install the shelving themselves and all users are able to reconfigure shelf spacing without the need of a service technician.

The installation process is very simple as referenced below.

There are three main components to Aurora Quik-Lok Shelving, uprights, shelf supports and shelves. Uprights make up the sides of a section of shelving, two shelf supports per level (one in front and one in back) lock into key holes on the uprights with a rubber mallet and shelves are placed on top of the shelf supports.

If you have existing Aurora Shelving and need additional shelving units or just a few parts.

The founder of our company helped to develop the Aurora Quik-Lok Shelving concept. Having been a designer and supplier for close to 50 years we have developed a knowledge base about Aurora Shelving that few if any can match.

The volume business we do each year qualifies us for the maximum discount structure, which we pass along to our clients. We ship nationwide directly from the factory in Aurora, IL. Quick Ship is available in various sizes and colors when you need it fast!

{HELPFUL TIP}: Since the patent ran out, other companies have started manufacturing their version of Aurora Shelving. Not all manufacturers parts are completely interchangable with Aurora Shelving and visa versa. Contact me, I am happy to help you figure it out!
