Metal Shelving

 By: Carmel White
Shelves made of metal are quite popular because they are sturdy, long lasting and compact. They are also easy to ship and easy to assemble on site where needed, and come in attractive finishes and customized shapes that fit the application.

Metal shelving can be made with steel for functionality or aluminium when the focus is on display. Metal shelving does not suffer from moisture and wood pests that typically affect wooden shelving. They can also be made with wire, perforated steel, tubes and other components to reduce weight.

Many of us might have assembled custom shelves using slotted steel angles and bolts/nuts. Wood is much more cumbersome to handle and even more difficult to assemble correctly. When it comes to customization, metal is far more flexible.

Speaking of customization, shelves are available in numerous styles to suit varied requirements. Listed below are some examples from one supplier:
