The most popular type of shelving systems is standard, and you can meet it in any settings. As a rule, these shelve stands have a construction with four stands where you can place as many shelves as you want. This shelving unit is able to keep the heavy loads, however, you can see all the stuff on these shelves.
The next common type is wall mount. You can mount this shelving unit anywhere you need, so this feature makes this type of the shelving system very convenient. If you do not want to keep your tools on the ground, this is what you need. Or maybe you have very curious kids? But you should take into account the weight of the things on the shelves because the wall mounts have some limits.
An overhead shelving unit provides a balance between the standard type and a wall mount. The shelves are installed on the roof beams. It gives a good security for heavy loads and provides a bigger storage space. A great advantage of this type is keeping the stuff away from other people and things. However, you may face a problem with installing this type of the shelving unit. And if you need to take something from this shelf, you should use a ladder. The cost of the overhead shelving systems is higher than other types.
If you are going to use a big shelf, it does not mean that you can store everything you want on it. You should consider a weight of the stored materials. For example, not every shelf can handle a bag with concrete. This is one of the most important characteristics that should be taken into account when you choose shelves for your garage.
Another fact to consider is a size. Some shelve can be adjusted which is very convenient. And other shelving systems have different configurations meant for different spaces. And a number of the shelves depends on these characteristics.
The shelving unit should fit a space you want, so make sure that you have measured the space and the shelves you are going to buy. The shelving system with wheels may be a good option if you are going to move it from time to time.
