Cambro Basics Shelving Assembly

Cambro Basics Shelving Assembly

In this video, you will see just how easy it is to assemble a basic, stationary starter unit. In your package, you will receive all the components needed to assemble a complete starter unit with four shelves. The only tools you will need are a rubber mallet and a level. Also, it is best to have an additional person to assist with the assembly. Basics stationary starter units ship with pre-assembled post kits. You should have two stationary post kits to build a starter unit. We're going to begin by installing a set of dove tails onto the post. Take a set of dove tails, 1A and 1B dove tail. The A dove tail will be installed on the right side and the B dove tail on the left. We will now install the traverses onto the basics stationary starter unit. It is time to complete our assembly by adding the shelf plates. Place all the shelf plates onto the traverses. The last step is making sure you level the shelving unit to make sure that it is evenly positioned, leveled front to back, and side to side. Do not climb or stand on shelving. Place heavy objects on lowest shelf. Use a dunnage stand when storing heavy items. Distribute weight as evenly as possible. There you have it! We have just assembled a Basics series starter unit. You can count on Cambro to be on the leading edge of technology, innovation, and food safety. Your complete shelving solutions from Cambro.

Cambro Camshelving®: Overview

Cambro Camshelving®: Overview

My passion for cooking actually came while I was in high school, when I was 13 years old. Had an executive chef who used to be a former Walt Disney World chef and he really got me into falling in love with ingredients and falling in love with the food. I love following recipes, I love creating things from recipes, but the real passion came when I was able to create whatever I wanted too. Efficiency and organization is the backbone of any successful operation. Without it, you aren’t going to succeed in what you do. The biggest challenge in running an operation of this size is really just creating efficiency and productivity. The impact of not having the right equipment is extremely visible. Having a dependable product that you rely on, that’s something we look deeply into to make sure we have the right solution to our business needs. This is the biggest hotel I’ve worked at in my career, ya know, and in terms of coverage, it’s really high. That’s where the organization is important. With this particular hotel, everything was sitting on a shelf at one point or another, and if we didn’t have that type of organization and that kind of space utilization with our shelving units, we wouldn’t be able to effectively service our guests. That’s where the Cambro shelving line really helped us in our operation become more efficient. Working with Cambro they actually came in, measured out the room, and made custom pieces to fit the entire room so that I could use the entire scope of the storage area. The problem with wire shelving is you know the rust is probably the biggest thing, you know, you get into operations where you are throwing away a ton of scrap metal and things like that into a trashcan. To have the Camshelving® itself, I’m not throwing anything away. Moving to the Cambro solution, we’ve been able to really maximize our team in getting a much more sterile environment, I would say that everything needs to have a place, and the Cambro shelving really helps provide that solution for us, which creates efficiency back-of-the-house which trickles down to impact our team that’s on the floor working face-to-face with the guests. The Cambro brand is important to me just because of the fact that it just really means quality, um, and durability, and, ya know, Cambro really stands behind their product. I take a lot of pride in what I do, and to see my kitchen running smoothly and efficiently is probably, you know, the one of the most important things for me.

Customer questions about this product

Do I need to purchase anything else to build a complete shelving unit?
Additional shelves, posts, connectors, or a starter unit will be required to build a complete shelving unit.
Can I create an L- or U-shaped shelving system with this add-on unit?
If the add-on unit is over 48” long – no. The manufacturer does not recommend using these add-on units for an L- or U-shaped design. The length of the shelf traverses is too long and could cause potential load bearing issues.

If the add-on unit is 48” long or less – yes. These units can be used to create an L- or U-shaped shelving system. You must also purchase enough corner connectors to link the add-on unit to your shelving system (2 connectors required per shelf).
I want to create an L- or U-shaped shelving system with this add-on unit. Is the shelf capacity the same as a standard Camshelving Basics unit?
While the shelf capacity remains 600 lb. when building in a straight line, creating an L- or U-shaped shelving system brings the capacity to 300 lb. per shelf.

Cambro CBA214884VS4580 Details

This Cambro CBA214884VS4580 Camshelving® Basics Plus add on unit with 3 vented shelves and 1 solid shelf allows you to easily boost the storage space of your preexisting Basics Plus series Camshelving® unit! Great for all of your light to medium-duty storage needs, this package includes 4 shelves, 2 posts with pre-installed post connectors and wedges, matching dovetails, and 8 traverses. The vented shelves facilitate optimal airflow and the solid shelf can hold smaller items while containing leaks and spills. The traverses on both the first and second unit share the middle post, eliminating the need for add-on clips or s-hooks. When built in a straight line, there is no loss of weight bearing capacity.

With a slim design and a sturdy combination of solid and vented shelves, this add on unit comes with many innovative Camshelving® features, but for a more affordable price! Made with durable composite material that is as strong as steel, this add on unit still weighs 60% less than steel and is easier to set up, clean, and maintain. With its professional-looking brushed graphite color and great durability, this add on unit is perfect for any area of your business, even humid dish rooms or cold walk-in freezers. Featuring a limited lifetime warranty against rust and corrosion, this unit is guaranteed not to rust, corrode, or peel, even when used in wet, dry, hot, or cold areas. It can withstand temperatures as low as -36 degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 190 degrees Fahrenheit without breaking down.

Versatility is built in to this add on unit! The shelves can easily be adjusted in 4" increments even after the shelving unit is assembled. The shelf plates are impervious to chemicals and moisture, making this unit easy to clean. Just take a cloth and wipe them down as you would other surfaces in your kitchen or storage room. And, when a more thorough cleaning is called for, you can remove the shelf plates and run them through the dishwasher.
