Shelving for Your Business

When you run a business shelving is necessary in stocking your items to present a professional looking store or to keep your extra stock in the backroom. Even If you do not run store shelving is also used in warehouses to store almost anything depending on what your business produces.

There are many different types of shelving available to store items; the first type is the wire shelving. I found that wire shelving is extremely durable and also light weight because of the empty space made within the wiring. The wire shelving is great for storing a large amount of items and you can also utilize the wiring for additional fixtures. Because of the nature of the wiring you can hang promotional items easily on this type of shelving.

Another type of shelving is the Galvanized steel shelving or zinc plated shelving, while generally I see these used in industrial warehouses or maintenance areas because this type of shelving can take a beating and is also resistant to moisture or spillage which can occur often in these types of work places. This type of shelving is also used often in cold areas for example in a stockroom where meats and perishable foods are kept in a chilled room for storage. One of the best advantages of this type of shelving because of the material is that it is rust proof and anti corrosion so if you use this shelving in the weather you will not have to worry about rust or corrosion from spills.

Aluminum shelving I also found to be useful, the material is light weight so it can easily be installed and moved around when empty. When using aluminum shelving I found that this type of shelving is also corrosion and rust resistant although you will have to check with the type that you buy as not all has this benefit. Aluminum shelving can be used for almost anything and can be considered general purpose although it’s not ideal for heavy items as overtime you will see the welds break on the shelving if using too much weight.

Plastic shelving is another type of shelving which is generally used within offices because these do not allow large amounts of weight. But if you have an office especially ones in an industrial area there can be a lot of dirt so you would not want wood shelving. The plastic shelving is also easy to clean and you will not have to worry about humidity affecting the shelving.

Shelving and storage options such as metal cupboards and large storage boxes are very important to businesses in order to maintain a safe and tidy environment.
