What Are the Main Benefits of Utilizing Stainless Steel Floating Shelves from MarlinSteel?

Floating metal shelving is one of the most versatile shelving options available for all types of workplaces. Stainless steel shelves, in particular, are a popular choice for storage and display needs in office, retail, food service, laboratory, and residential environments.

Unlike other steel shelving options, wall mount stainless steel shelving offers more durability and a longer lifespan. They are also environmentally friendly due to their nontoxic and recyclable composition. Recent developments in the fabrication industry have enabled manufacturers to weld, cut, mold, and process stainless steel like other metal materials.

At Marlin Steel, we manufacture top-quality stainless steel shelving for a wide range of applications.

Benefits of Stainless Steel Floating Shelves

Restaurant and laboratory facilities often use sturdy floating stainless steel shelves to store and organize supplies. In these environments, stainless steel is preferred over other materials—like wood—because it is strong, easy to clean, and water-resistant. In humid settings like kitchens, wood shelves rot and harbor mold, which can harm staff and diners. Stainless steel shelves are corrosion-resistant, so they are waterproof and do not rust.

This corrosion resistance is also important for hospital and lab shelving, which is regularly exposed to various chemicals.

Floating shelf designs are also as robust as conventional shelving with visible brackets. The lack of visible brackets often leads people to perceive floating shelves as less sturdy, but stainless steel floating shelves can indeed support heavy equipment while freeing up wall space.
