Why You Should Powder Coat Your Metal Shelving

Powder Coating by Frank T. Metal Shelving

Powder coating is a great way to customize and protect your metal shelving.

Metal shelving is great because it offers an affordable, low-profile storage solution for many different situations and circumstances. These shelving units have always been popular for the garage and other workspaces that need durable, affordable shelving. However, over the years they have become more and more popular as home shelving alternatives. Powder coating your metal shelving can keep them looking sharp and performing at their best for years to come.

Customize the Look

You might not be too worried about the color of your metal shelving if it’s going in the garage, but more and more people are bringing them into the home for storage and display. As the price of bookshelves and other storage options continues to increase, metal shelving remains an affordable and reliable option. Having the ability to change the shelving from shiny chrome or pitch black to something that reflects your home design and personal style more can make it a more visually appealing addition to your home. There’s no need to settle when it comes to metal shelving—powder coating can give it the exact look you want.

Protect it from Damage

Whether the shelf is going in the garage or being placed in the home, powder coating can help to keep it protected for years. In the garage, the shelving will be exposed to extreme temperatures and humidity, threatening the longevity of your metal shelving. Powder coating creates a protective layer over the raw metal, making it impervious to rust and degradation. This can keep your metal shelving in top form even against the elements of nature. In the home, metal shelving might see less wear and tear, but a painted shelf will peel before too long. Metal shelving has also become popular with fish keepers, which poses a risk to the metal due to the water. Counteracting the threat of the water will ensure that your metal shelf doesn’t fall victim to rust or weakened metal through degradation. You don’t want your shelf collapsing due to extensive damage because the metal was left unprotected, so it’s a good idea to have it powder coated.
