SECTION 10 56 10
ALUMINUM STORAGE SHELVING SYSTEM
***** For over 30 years Rangine Corporation has provided the construction industry with high quality, functional, and distinctive shelving systems, counter support brackets, a handrail system, and other and architectural specialties. This guide specification section can be used to incorporate Rangine Corporation's Rakks Storage System into a competitively bid construction project. This contemporary designed system provides infinite shelf adjustability without slots or visible hardware and includes both wall mounted and pole mounted applications. This unique system consists of the following fully compatible parts which can be easily configured to meet a very wide range of shelving and display applications. Refer to Rangine product literature for illustrations and descriptions of the following models.
Wall mounted standards: Model Numbers SC, SM, SE, SG, SD, and SQ2.
Pole supports: Model Numbers PL, PC2, PC4, PS4, and PD6.
Shelf support brackets: Rakks Style, Universal Style, T-Style, T-Style Laboratory Bracket, Aria Style, Tray Brackets, Floating Display Brackets, and Desk Brackets.
Extruded aluminum shelves: Model Numbers SA-04, SA-06, and SAF-06.
This guide can be used to prepare a section for specifying a complete Rakks Storage Shelving System. For some building projects the various Rakks products could be used as components for casework, countertops, work surfaces, displays, and other custom designed fabrications. For these applications a specifier would not necessarily prepare a separate section for a Rakks product. Instead the requirements for brackets, standards, and other components would be placed in another section such as the following:
Section 05 50 00 - Metal Fabrications

Section 06 40 00 - Architectural Woodwork

Section 06 41 00 - Architectural Wood Casework

Section 10 56 33 - Mercantile Storage Assemblies

Section 10 12 00 - Display Cases

Section 11 21 10 - Mercantile Display System

Section 12 35 00 - Specialty Casework

Section 12 59 59 - Display Casework
When inserted in a broader specification section such as those listed above, the various paragraphs of this guide will need to be inserted in the appropriate locations in either Part 1, 2, or 3 of the section requiring Rakks Shelving components.
This specification section is organized by placing information in three standard parts:
PART 1 - GENERAL Describes administrative and procedural requirements.
PART 2 - PRODUCTS Describes materials, products, and accessories to be incorporated into the construction project.
PART 3 - EXECUTION Describes how the products will be installed at the construction site.
Throughout this product guide specification, references are made to other specification sections that might be contained in the project manual. These references are presented as examples and coordination reminders. Specification section numbers and titles are based on the 2004 MasterFormat published by the Construction Specifications Institute (CSI) and Construction Specifications Canada (CSC). For each project, these references will need to be revised to reflect actual sections being used.
Within the specification text, Imperial dimensions are presented first in brackets followed by System International Metric (SI) equivalents also in brackets. Depending on project requirements, either the Imperial or the SI metric equivalents will need to be deleted.
The specifier will need to edit this product specification for a specific project to reflect the options and applications being used. The guide section has been written so that most editing can be accomplished by deleting unnecessary requirements and options. Depending on project requirements, some additional information will need to be added by the specifier. Options are indicated by [ ]. Notes to assist the specifier in selecting options and editing the specification guide are printed in bold and indicated with *****. For final editing, all brackets and notes will need to be deleted from the guide.
Other products manufactured by Rangine Corporation can be specified using the following specification guides:
Section 10 59 10 - Aluminum Support Brackets

Section 05 52 10 - Aluminum and Wood Railings
