Heavy-duty stainless steel shelving features to consider before buying
Mobile vs. stationary stainless steel shelves. Kitchens need movable equipment for better cleaning. Moreover, the racks that are equipped with movable casters ensure great transportability and facilitate serving. You can easily move such a unit for quick washing of the surrounding, supporting a sanitary environment, and avoiding lifting heavy steel equipment. For bakeries, for example, a rack with wheels for cooling baked goods is an indispensable component. Fixed shelves are suitable if you have enough space to set them up. It could even be a multi-tiered corner shelving. In addition to saving a couple of square meters, a corner rack is able to bring comfort and neatness.
Wooden vs. metal. Among the available range of shelves, you can also select wood models. However, they are perfect for private use. As for the intensive use and influence of external factors on the surface of equipment in commercial kitchens, wood as a material will not be so highly functional, because in most cases, it plays only a decorative role. For food establishments, only a strong metal such as steel can provide high-quality characteristics, comply with food safety, and guarantee a long service life.
