Plastic/Poly Shelving

Plastic shelf units provide storage, organization and decor throughout the office or home. Available in numerous colors and styles, these durable shelves maximize the available space and cut down on clutter in high-traffic areas. Choose from different sizes and configurations to create storage for any area.

Choosing the Right Plastic Shelves for the Space

Staples offers shelves ranging from single units to those with three or more, ensuring an option that will work in most areas. Single shelves hold small items or decorations and can add valuable storage in closets and half bathrooms. Larger units, such as those with three, four or five shelves, organize closets, keep necessities on hand and provide space for pictures, knickknacks and other decor. Double-wide shelves keep laundry detergents and necessities tidy or work in the garage to organize smaller tools, fasteners and chemicals. Corner and compact plastic shelving units take up less space in smaller rooms while providing valuable storage.

Durability

Shelves made of plastic are easy to maintain, with most requiring only a wipe down with a damp cloth to keep them looking nice. The plastic materials don't absorb water or other spills, making them ideal for holding cleaners, beverages and craft supplies. There are some units that feature composite wood shelving materials paired with plastic tube frames, resulting in a lightweight yet sturdy design that holds up to years of use. Units made of polyethylene plastic that are reinforced with steel provide protection against dents and scratches and support up to 180 pounds on each shelf, ensuring a storage solution for most materials in the office or the home.

Stand-Alone or Anchored Options

Stand-alone plastic shelves, which are those that simply stand up right in a chosen location, provide a stable option for storing lighter items. When stored items are distributed evenly, these types of units stay planted, without leaning or tilting on flat surfaces. Anchored shelving includes hardware for securing it to a wall for added stability. Consider anchored options in areas that are uneven, for storing heavier items or when distribution across each shelf may be unbalanced. These anchors prevent the unit from shifting or falling, providing added protection and safety while ensuring items remain on the shelves, even in high-traffic areas.

Designs for Any Decor

Plastic shelving units are available in different colors and designs, so there is an option for nearly any use. Use a traditional black or white unit for storage rooms, closets and bathrooms. Shelves accented with uprights painted in metallic colors add polish in offices and waiting areas. There are plastic units with shelves in a variety of wood colors, making them a good solution for adding to business areas and libraries. Look for units with cloth bin inserts that offer additional storage and hide smaller items while providing plenty of space for holding towels and other necessities in the bathroom. Whether you prefer rounded shelves or those that are square or rectangle, there is a shelf option available that will fit with any style of decor and provide storage and organization.
