If you’re looking for extra storage or an organization solution for your restaurant’s kitchen, stainless steel shelving might be the answer. There are so many different types of shelving and we have it all at Kohn-Megibow Company. Stop by our warehouse in Anaheim to see our new and used restaurant equipment selection.
When buying shelving for your restaurant, there are some things you should know in order to purchase the best shelves for your needs. First, let’s start off with the advantages that come with shelving:
1. Organization – Keep your kitchen more organized with a nice shelving system.
2. Storage – Have the room you need to store everything you need to.
3. Space Limitations – Shelves help you maximize your space. The more limited your kitchen space is, the more valuable shelving becomes.
Stainless steel shelving is the most popular and prominent because it is sturdy, long-lasting and easy to keep clean and sanitary. There are three main types of stainless steel shelving to consider for your restaurant:
1. Stainless Steel Wall Shelves
These are shelves that mount on the wall with brackets and can be set at your desired height. The depth of the shelves usually ranges between 12 and 18 inches, though they can come in an infinite amount of sizes and configurations and can be used for any number of purposes. You can arrange these shelves side-by-side or vertically to get the most out of your restaurant space. Wall shelves are great for storing steel pans, ingredients/spices and excess small equipment (blenders, mixers, choppers, slicers, etc.). It keeps them handy when you need them, but out of the way when you don’t.
2. Custom Corner Shelving
KMC gets used restaurant equipment from many different types of restaurants, so we regularly get shelves of all shapes, sizes, and designs. Some restaurants have shelving that is custom-built to fit in corners and they are easily repurposed to fit your restaurant’s kitchen space. These custom shelves may cost up to $100 a foot brand new. At KMC, you can usually get them at auction for a fraction of the cost. Talk about incredible savings!
3. Over Shelves
These shelves are not mounted on the wall, but rather directly above appliances or kitchen equipment. They come with one, two or three shelves and in varying widths to fit with all different types of mounting situations. Over shelves come with brackets that allow for mounting. They are also excellent space savers. Again, you can find over shelves at KMC for a fraction of the price they would cost new.
