The Basics >

Innovative Shelving

Aurora invented Quik-Lok, an innovative shelving design assembled with no tools.

  • Aurora Shelving cuts assembly time and costs by 30%
  • Quik-Lok = easy assembly and easy disassembly

Quik-Base

Patented Quik-Base streamlines shelving installation by combining a front base, shelf support and floor anchoring device in one assembly. Quik-Base is firmly attached to the uprights with our patented Quik-Lok system so it won’t move if accidentally kicked or bumped.

Quik-Base combines shelf support, front base, and floor anchoring device... all-in- one patented assembly 2-3/4” and 4-1/4” heights

Shelving supports with rivets fit neatly into upright keyholes.
