Metal Shelving

Metal shelving units have a sturdy construction that stands up to continued use, making them suitable for the home, warehouse or office. They come in an array of sizes and styles to fit varying needs. At Staples, you'll find shelving systems to organize paper, equipment or home goods from companies such as IRIS, Home Basics and Excel.

Different Styles and Sizes for Versatility

Shelving systems come in a variety of sizes, from small units with two tiers for simple shoe storage to large six-shelf systems with adjustable levels for larger, heavier items. Those with glass shelves work for home organization, but warehouses, stockrooms and garages benefit from wood or metal shelves that can hold up to 4,000 pounds of evenly distributed weight. Wire units offer the flexibility of installing additional organizational elements such as hooks and bags for more storage options. These units work well in rooms with limited space. Those looking for custom solutions should consider a bolt-less design that lets users create their own configurations.

Metal cabinets let users hide away contents for a clean appearance, making them a suitable addition to a home or commercial garage. Cube storage units are good for lightweight use such as storing craft supplies. Each metal shelf has space for a fabric bin to keep contents hidden, or you can use them as-is for visibility. Cube units come in several sizes and feature a wire mesh construction that lets you configure them in different ways.

Wheels Increase Portability

Storage carts meant for temporary use have built-in wheels for portability. They let users move items such as files, boxes and equipment between areas with minimal effort. Those with dual-caster wheels move smoothly over a variety of surfaces including tile, carpeting and concrete, making them a versatile addition to any environment. Storage carts come with as few as two shelves or up to 15 drawers for more organizational options. They have convenient handles for navigating through halls and around furnishings.

Metal Shelves Double as Housing Accents

Some metal storage shelves have modern or whimsical design features to complement home decor. Wall-mountable options in the shape of a whale or map of the United States let users express their passions while still enjoying the benefits of added storage space. Some have hooks, doubling as a key holder, while others have slots for organizing smaller items such as mail. Corner units help conserve space, especially in smaller rooms. Certain models have shelves that fold up to close the unit for discreet storage. Bathroom shelves add extra space for toiletries and essentials, while closet racks help organize small and large wardrobes.

Other Features for Stability and Durability

Leveling feet help keep metal storage shelves stable on a variety of surfaces. Shelves with lips provide a barrier to keep contents from falling off. Heavier units often have a standalone design, but some come with a wall-mount anchor strap to keep them upright. Rubber food pads help units stay firmly in place to increase safety. Some models have brackets to install on or over a cubicle wall to hold files, office supplies and important documents.
