Companies that have industrial units to store large quantities of goods are always in need of excess storage space. This is because extra storage space would mean the ability to stock and provide retailers with more products. This could obviously result in more sales and as a result more profit. However, large amounts of storage space are often not available and you need to make the most of the space you have.

In order to increase the available space within an industrial unit, many unit managers and owners are buying shelving units. These shelving units allow companies to store larger quantities of goods without taking up too much floor space. But selecting shelving units does not only depend on this. There are many other factors to look into when choosing an appropriate shelving unit.

The best quality steel shelving units are made from roll cold steel that is thick enough to sustain heavy weights. It is also important that phosphate is first used on the steel shelving unit and later baked on enamel is used to paint it so that it lasts longer. Depending on the size of the unit, a quality steel shelving unit weighs between 500 to 2000 pounds.

There are different kinds of shelving units available. These shelving units can have different features like accessibility from one or both sides or additional storage accessories. It is important for companies to refrain from buying cheap shelving units. It is better to spend a little more and ensure that you have purchased durable long lasting units rather than those that will need replacing quickly.
