We utilize standard shelving and line the shelves with plastic VHS tape
shelf inserts available from Winsted. www.winsted.com
http://catalogs.google.com/catalogs?dq=&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&issue=19046&catpage=175&zoom=3

Product number 70985 is for the 35" shelf.

If you can't find an answer to storage needs at Winsted, you might be stuck.
