When you are looking for metal garage shelves, there are several things to consider. The first thing is the space available, and the next is what you intend to store on the shelves. Heavy-duty steel shelving is preferred by many homeowners and businesses because these shelves can store a variety of items and are low maintenance. Just set them up and let them go to work.
What are Some Ideas for Using Steel Storage Shelves?
The key to placing the shelves is putting them where they will have the most structural integrity. Having these shelves sit in the middle of a garage or closet is asking for an accident. Folks will walk by quickly, snag clothes on something sticking out of the shelf and topple the shelves. Instead, use the back wall or put the shelves in a corner, this is a great way to use other structures to add strength to the steel shelves. This placement also makes it easier to navigate the space.
The other thing to consider is how the shape of the shelves impacts their placement and sturdiness. Rectangles are the ideal style for these types of shelves because they can support more weight due to their wide base. The more shelves are attached, the stronger the shelving unit is. The high-density red steel will be eye catching regardless of where it is placed.
What Is the Best Way to Organize Shelves?
The first thing to note is that heavy items or items that can break easily should be stored near the bottom. The heavy items will act to keep the shelves more stable, while having the breakable items at the bottom makes it so that if they fall over, there’s less of a chance you will have to replace something.
When you have smaller tools, put them farther and farther up. The good thing about these shelves is you can adjust the shelf height to however you see fit. Make sure that you don’t have to do too much reaching or bending. Keeping items in proper position will make it so that you don’t strain your back constantly bending over to get the hedge trimmer.
