4Post Case-Type Shelving

Case-type shelving is similar to closed 4-Post Divider Shelving, except that the upright has a dual wall

The dual wall prevents media from getting hidden or stuck behind the front post from the inside of the unit

Cantilever Shelving

Very popular in libraries, cantilever shelving is constructed with a central upright frame and shelves that hang on either side

The main difference between Case-type and Cantilever Shelving is that Cantilever units are easier to adjust than Case-Type
