This shelving is going in a feed store.
16' long x 7' tall x 2' wide.
It's to big for my powder coating oven, so I have to send it out for that.
Next up is the same design, but app 24' long.
The feed store has been around for 50+ years, but up to one year ago, their retail space was app 400sqft. Two stalls in a 50+ year old barn. Then they build a new building with app 3000sqft of retail space and I have been building all the shelving for them.

Nice work!  Are they integrating lighting into the underside of the upper shelf?

Good work!  That's a big jump in size, hope they have the customers to make it worth while.

Why Powder coat instead of enamel paint ?   Cost ?

i'm with Steve on this, i'd sure spray paint them before doing any powder coating. powder coating isn't worth a dang in our part of the country.

Dave, yes they will put some LED's under the top shelves.
John, In the old place, 5 people and one would have to wait outside. In the new place, they now have 5+ people each waiting in 2-3 lines to order/pay. One week in Nov, in the first three days, they sold more, than they had ever sold in a full week in over the 50+ years they have been open. Old school, one family own type of place.
S & S, If done half way right, powder coat will last 2-3 times longer than spray on paint.
Once you buy the right equipment, for 10-15 times what a top of the line spray gun cost, your cost per item is 1/2 to 1/3 what it is to spray paint.
My to small oven cost over $5000 new now. The guns I use cost over $1200 each.
If I need to, I can bake a item, pull it out of the oven, run water over it to cool it down and it is ready to use. Plus, I can powder coat 4-5 times as many items in a hour, than I can spray paint.
