In choosing a storage shelf, whether wood, metal, glass reinforced fiber, plastic, or a combination of wood and aluminum or wood and stainless steel, consider its durability, lifespan, stability, safety and cost. Other elements such as beauty, size, height, mobility, ease of access all come into play in determining your shelving options. The popular type nowadays as a storage equipment is the metal shelf with a capacity of 150 lbs to over 1,000 lbs. per shelf. They can be made of aluminum, galvanized, chrome plated or stainless steel.
Pallet - This type of shelving is usually found in a warehouse or factory and can hold as much as 6,000 pounds.
Floor-supported garage shelving is another site-built option. One method for constructing these is to form upright supports by running vertical 2x4 boards every 50 inches. Each 2x4 should rest on the floor and be attached to a rafter or ceiling joist at the top. Then, additional 2x4 boards are attached horizontally on edge between the uprights and particle board is used to create the shelf. Dimensions are usually 19-25 inches deep with 25 inches between each shelf. These are only suggested dimensions and can be adjusted to better accommodate the size of the items that will be stored.
