Common Questions About Shelving
What are the best ways to utilize restaurant shelving?
Commercial shelving comes in many styles, so there is a shelving solution for most storage spaces. Affordable and reliable wire shelving is adjustable, relatively easy to install, and can be placed almost anywhere. This type of shelving is often used in both dry storage areas and walk-in coolers and freezers. The wire provides air circulation around stored items, keeping them dry and free of mold. Since air moves freely throughout the storage space, dust buildup is minimized.
Specialty shelving options like security cages and dunnage racks are also available. Cages can be used to lock up expensive items, protecting them from theft and damage. They are durable and typically mount on casters so that they can be moved around. Dunnage racks elevate heavy items off the ground so air can circulate around them.
How durable is commercial shelving?
Whether it is made of metal or plastic, commercial shelving can withstand high-volume use. Both options are strong, but each material has benefits and special features that add to its durability.
Metal shelving is the most common type available since it is heavy duty. It may be made of stainless steel, which is corrosion resistant and quick cleaning, or of chrome-plated aluminum or galvanized steel. Even though metal shelving is heavy duty, some materials are susceptible to corrosion, so plastic shelving is a great option for walk-in coolers and other humid spaces. Most plastic shelving units have capacities similar to metal shelves and are strong enough to hold bulk product. Plastic shelves can also be much easier to adjust and clean than metal shelves and are sometimes made with antimicrobial compounds that prevent the growth of bacteria and mold.
