Heavy duty stainless steel shelving is perfect for warehouses and showrooms, those places where solutions are frequently needed for the storage of heavy items. Steel is the most widespread used material for warehouses and other storage facilities, not only because it is strong, but also because of it being way more durable than the other type of materials used for shelving purposes.
Shelving made from stainless steel provides storage that is well organised and allows for easy accessibility. This heavy-duty shelving system also makes the storage environment a lot safer, especially heavy items, which can often create hazardous surroundings.
Advantages of using Stainless Steel Shelves include:
Durability — compared to other types of metal, shelves made from stainless steel need very little maintenance. It is rust-resistant and extremely easy to clean. Powder coating the shelves with paint will give them additional protection against scratches and rust.
Being non-porous, they are able to withstand cleaning many times during a day, with basically any type of cleaning solution or chemical needed to create a super-clean environment. Since it is this easy to clean, the stainless steel material is incredibly suitable for the storage of oily or greasy items.
Yet another benefit of this material being porous, is that it is impossible for viruses or bacteria to penetrate the surface and they will simply be washed away during the cleaning process.
Corrosion resistance — being resistant to rust, these shelves will stay looking good for many years to come and will maintain that sleek, modern look you want in your work premises. It contains high levels of chromium and when it comes into contact with astringent chemicals, air and water, corrosion is prevented when a layer of oxide forms on the chromium. With the proper care and maintenance, stainless steel shelving will stay as good looking for years – just as they did on the day they were first installed.
Strength — a stainless steel storage system is the ideal choice when you need strong and durable, heavy duty shelves for storing heavy items. The shelves are specially constructed with welded beams, which are able to safely and efficiently store items that weigh up to 1000 pounds on each shelf.
Welding is a procedure that has been used for many years. Metal pieces are joined together permanently, by using high temperatures to melt and fuse the pieces to each other. When welding is carried out by an experienced welding artisan, the joints will be extremely neat, with the finished shelving system looking its absolute best.
Since welded joints are normally stronger than the metal that has been through the welding process, you can rest assured that your shelving system is 2the strong and heavy-duty type of shelving system you need for storing those heavy items on your premises.
