There are many things that we tend to take for granted until they break or we’re forced to face the reality that we did so. One thing that tends to bring harsh lessons is when we don’t realize the actual weight limitations of our shelves. Shelves can be made from plastic but look incredibly strong. For a short time they may actually support something heavy but although we may not notice it, this is usually a short lived concept. When our shelves break they don’t just make us think we need to buy a new shelf. A lot of the time we end up losing or breaking something of value and that is the real lesson involved.
With the sturdy and reliable steel shelving unit you can often store a great deal of heavy items on it for years and years. If you mount the shelves right and reinforce them into a stud, these shelves will stand the test of time and heavy use. Things that we use in a laundry room for example like heavy buckets or boxes or detergent, or several medium sized bottles of liquid chemicals for cleaning the house, can over a short period of time weaken the infrastructure of a cheap shelf and bracket. Steel shelving units however are designed to take this and much more thus are a very good idea when choosing shelving for the garage.
Steel shelving units can also be used for a large variety of things such as commercial warehouse shelving, retail product shelving (especially heavy products like food/cans, or big bags of sugar that collectively become extremely heavy. They are also wonderful for home improvement store items that are small but dense and need good support strength. A benefit of using steel is that it is by natural design extremely durable and strong. These shelves can last a hundred years or more if taken care of! If used for heavy items they can last a very long time as well. The other thing that’s great is they can be recycled, even turned into other products when they become bent or disfigured from several years of abuse. You can even weld them back together if they become cracked or separated.
