New Shelving From Detail Retail

New Shelving From Detail Retail

Detail Retail, the supplier of affordable fixtures to retail, trade and garden stores, has launched its DIY Pigeon-Hole shelving system.

The DIY Pigeon-Hole system is a cost and space effective way of retailing timber, steel, PVC and bundled product. The shelving was created as a kit which allows stores to ‘Do-It-Themselves’.

Indeed, Detail Retail understands that hardware stores are more than capable of installing their own fixturing systems, as long as they have the right components. With the new system, managers have the option of using store staff for the assembly rather than paying for expensive installation labour. Of course, Detail Retail will also assist with the installation if necessary.

The DIY Pigeon-Hole kit includes all steel framing; uprights and dividers; stair case sets including steel stringers, treads and balustrading; vertical balustrading and inserts; floor joist connectors and all the required brackets, locking mechanisms and nuts and bolts. When required, the store simply needs to provide the timber flooring and timber lining.

The steel frame clicks and locks together with ease and it can be installed within a couple of days. All components are pre-drilled to ensure a speedy assembly and there is no on-site welding or drilling. The kit is designed to offer future flexibility by altering the hole spacing in height and width. The Pigeon Hole racking kit is manufactured to the store’s requirements: height, length, depth, hole spacing which means customisation can be achieved without adding cost. Detail Retail will also happily draw up the plan to suit space and budget.

The DIY Pigeon-Hole kit is available in multiple configurations.

1. One Level Kit

2. Mezz-Kit

3. Multi-Mezz-Kit


  • The One Level Kit is a very affordable single-level option, where product can be accessed simply from the ground level. Generally, the top beam height is around the 2.3m mark. Hole size and height can be varied.



  • The Mezz-Kit is popular as it has an integrated mezzanine level over the top of the pigeon hole racking. The Mezz-Kit offers an incredible opportunity to create another level of storage of product above the pigeon hole without changing the building structure. The second level is fully supported by the steel structure. The mezzanine level can be divided to provide additional pigeon hole capacity or additional storage.
  • The Mulit-Mezz-Kit allows for extended Mezzanine levels, with framing that reaches as high as 6m.The DIY Pigeon Hole racking is available in a powdercoated finish. If used for storing timber in the yard it can be provided with a hot-dipped galvanized finish. Detail Retail’s products conform to all relevant Australian Standards, namely AS4084-1993 and AS4084 Supp1-1993. Detail Retail also ensures full compliance with standards in manufacture.

    “The product is first class and went together effectively and quickly,” says Norm Hastings from Diamond Valley Mitre 10. The kits are delivered flat-packed wrapped and labeled and they are available nationally. Detail Retail also has the same DIY philosophy with its other trade fixture products. Their pallet racking differs from others in the market as the all end-frames are supplied pre-assembled for fast installation.

    Detail Retail has also successfully provided DIY flat-packed galvanized garden fixtures, and also offers cantilever racking, heavy duty retail racking and outrigger retail racking.
