Muscle Rack® 5-Level Heavy-Duty Black Steel Shelving is a sturdy storage option for Members who have limited space in their home or office. Muscle Rack shelving is a leader in the heavy-duty shelving sector because their stainless steel shelves are made from industrial-grade steel. When you’re looking for reliable garage shelving units or a heavy-duty shelving unit for a janitorial closet, there are few options better than the Muscle Rack.
There are lots of different uses for heavy-duty shelving. In a garage, these are the perfect for keeping different types of lawn equipment such as a hedge trimmer, weed eater and an edger. You can store power tools there as well. For janitorial closets, these shelves are ideal for holding chemicals and different types of cleaning tools.
What Makes Steel Shelves Strong?
These shelves are strong because of how they are designed. The rectangular design is critical for keeping the items from tipping over and breaking. A rectangle provides a wide base, and the wider the base, the more weight can be carried. Having the shelves inserted makes the frame even stronger. This is because the additional shelving units provide greater stability.
This unit is made from industrial-grade steel. This steel is designed to handle large loads. The density of the steel is why it works so well. Steel can be heavy, but if it isn’t dense then it won’t be too strong. This steel is lightweight and dense. Unless there is nearly three tons of equipment on the shelves, these shelves will last for decades.
Tips for Storage and Organization
When you are using steel shelves, the key is making sure they are in a place that makes sense organizationally. This means using walls and corners for placing the shelving units. Free standing shelves are problematic because items could stick out and catch people walking by.
Make sure heavier items are stored on the bottom. Power tools fall into this category. When you are storing items, it also makes sense to keep the ones that are fragile near the bottom of the shelves as well. If you need tools and or different items frequently, the best thing to do is keep them just below eye level. This reduces the need to bend and reach which causes back strain.
The Best Places to Use Steel Shelves
If you are using steel shelves, this means you need having a place where lots of important items can be stored. One of the best places is the garage. Garages are great because there is lots of open space. You can place the shelves wherever is best for the organizational flow of the space. Closets are great for these shelves as well. Avoid using these shelves in areas where young children are running around because they would be tempted to climb.
