Mushroom Growing Shelving


JFM Aluminium Shelving

Back when Phase 1 mushroom compost was filled, shelving was made from aluminium because of the corrosive nature of the compost.

With the introduction of Phase 2 & 3 composts galvanised shelving became popular because of the lower cost.

The corrosion resistance of some galvanised shelves was poor with the life expectancy around 10 – 15 years.Quality galvanised mushroom shelving had become expensive so we decided to design a high quality aluminium mushroom shelving system.


Why Annodized Shelving?

Aluminium mushroom shelving is normally supplied mill finished. We have gone one step further and anodized the exposed parts: Sideboards, end boards and legs. Although it increases corrosion resistance, Anodizing is not necessary for corrosion resistance of the shelves and is generally done for cosmetic appearance only.

Advantages of Annodized Shelving include:

  • High corrosion resistance
  • Transport-friendly
  • Easy to assemble
  • Easy to clean
  • High resale value
  • More cost-effective than galvanized shelves
  • Less wear on nets compared to galvanized shelves
  • High resale value


We have a number of different shelving specifications available for you to choose from.

Side Boards

We have a choice of Round Top or Flat Top. The standard height is 180mm with deeper boards available on special order. The sideboards are anodized.


The legs are 80 x 50 mm – 3 and 5 mm wall. This width is sufficient for sideboards to be joined on legs giving extra strength and easy assembly of the shelves. The legs are anodized.

End Boards

The end-boards are made from a bespoke aluminium profile and are anodized.


Our crossbeams are designed to give greater strength than standard within the industry. End crossbeams are closed on exposed face. Crossbeams can be punched for fitting of underbed mushroom watering system.
