How to choose the right shelving for your commercial kitchen

How to choose the right shelving for your commercial kitchen

The impact of shelving in your commercial kitchen can be more significant than you realise. Thoughtfully designed shelving can alleviate staff stress, streamline processes, save time, and minimise food wastage. Not all shelving is the same; for instance, Cambro Shelving offers stability, and anti-microbial protection, and is easy to clean, making it ideal for commercial storage. This enhances kitchen efficiency and elevates hygiene and food handling standards. When the unseen areas of your kitchen are well-organised and efficient, it speaks volumes about the overall quality of your kitchen operation.

Maximising Space

Shelving can be challenging around corners, window ledges, and vents. Cambro has ingeniously designed corner shelving without posts, facilitating easy access to items. Vents no longer need to occupy wasted space; instead, storage can be built around them. Even if the floor is uneven due to ledges, Cambro shelving can adjust its legs accordingly.

For those seeking ultimate efficiency, custom-built shelving is the way to go. It's all about optimising every inch of available space, turning it into functional storage that works for you. Enter Camshelving® Elements XTRA Series High-Density Storage System – a game-changer for maximising storage capacity, even in the tightest of spaces.

This rust-free system is not only efficient but also incredibly versatile. It comprises stationary starter units securely anchored to a raised floor track system. In between, high-density mobile units glide effortlessly on grooved casters, making the most of every inch. And here's the kicker – with the potential to increase storage capacity by up to 50%, it's a game-changer for any space-strapped environment.

Overlooking the Unseen Expenses of Metal Shelving

Metal, prone to rust and corrosion, quickly succumbs to deterioration in the demanding environment of a commercial kitchen. Its sharp edges become hazards, while the crevices become breeding grounds for food residue, fostering mould, and fungi, and attracting pests.

In stark contrast, manufactured of durable composite plastic shelving all Camshelving® comes backed with a lifetime guarantee against rust and corrosion. Moreover, they are equipped with Camguard®, an antimicrobial agent, ensuring hygienic storage conditions. You also have the choice of only vented shelves or vented shelves with one solid shelf, providing flexibility to meet your specific storage needs and aiding in spill prevention.

Cleaning metal shelving presents a logistical challenge, especially if the shelves are welded together. The process demands dedicated time and effort from staff, resulting in kitchen downtime and a diversion of personnel from more critical tasks.

Conversely, each Camshelf® is designed for easy disassembly and dishwasher compatibility. This streamlined cleaning process seamlessly integrates into your routine, eliminating interruptions and ensuring optimal hygiene standards are maintained. This makes Cambro Shelving an excellent choice for commercial storage, providing both efficiency and cleanliness. For reliable commercial storage solutions, Cambro Australia provides top-quality options tailored to meet your kitchen’s specific needs.
