Polymer Plastic Shelving

by Janice Knight

If you need a strong, heavy duty, attractive storage or display system, consider polymer shelving units. The latest polymer shelving is far superior to the plastic shelving of the past. Here are some features of the newest polymer shelving:

  • Polymer shelving is as strong as steel shelving and yet weighs much less. Some brands of polymer shelving have reinforced steel corners and center supports which also contribute to its strength and durability. 
  • Polymer shelving is lightweight, which makes it perfect for freestanding, wall-mounted, and mobile shelving. When installed on wheels, polymer shelving can be easily moved, even when fully loaded with objects and materials.
  • Polymer shelving is resistant to rust and corrosion so it can exist in humid or dry conditions without any degradation in strength. 
  • Polymer shelving is safe for restaurant and food storage as well as use in the medical and health fields. 
  • Polymer shelving is easy to clean so it can retain its visual appeal years after it was installed. You can clean polymer shelving with mild soap and water on a damp cloth. If shelf mats are used, they are easily removed for cleaning. 
  • Polymer shelves can be quickly raised or lowered to maximize shelf storage space. Some brands of polymer shelving have quick release mechanisms so that you can adjust shelves without tools. 
  • Vented polymer shelving allows air and light to circulate around shelf contents to protect electronic equipment from overheating and allow other materials to keep dry while being stored. 
  • Solid polymer shelving can contain inadvertent spills on one shelf without leaking onto the shelf below. 
  • Polymer shelving comes in an unlimited range of colors and finishes. Some polymer shelving is made to look like marble, porcelain, cotton, silk, wool, aluminum, zinc and other materials. It also can be made to look like glass.  
  • Polymer shelving is great for industrial, garage, and closet usage, and is attractive enough to use in the kitchen, living room, or bedroom. 

Here is what the American Chemistry Council says about polymers:  

"Polymers affect every day of our life. These materials have so many varied characteristics and applications that their usefulness can only be measured by our imagination. Polymers are the materials of past, present and future generations."

Try polymer shelving whenever you need to organize and store materials. Polymer shelving is cost effective and once installed, will last for years. Try it and you definitely won't be disappointed.
