Shelving in a commercial kitchen is essential. For storing ingredients, ware-washing, and so much more, your shelving will be used each and every day. Intermetro offers wire, plastic, solid, and adjustable shelving, all made with uncompromised reliability and flexibility to fit the needs of your unique configuration. A variety of materials and finishes are all offered to fit every application. Which finish best fits your environment?

  • Stainless Steel: for the most aggressive applications and environments
  • Chrome Plating: the “real” Nickel-chrome finish for dry, low humidity environments. Metro’s chrome finish includes a protective lacquer coat
  • BRITE: economical, chromate finish for dry, low humidity environments. Provides the look of chrome and includes a protective lacquer coat
  • Metroseal 3 Epoxy: corrosion resistant finish for wet or high humidity environments. Microban antimicrobial product protection is built into the finish to keep the product “cleaner between cleanings”
  • Standard Epoxy: a plastic aesthetic and basic protection for dry environments. Black epoxy is NSF listed for dry environments.

But it’s not just the finish that is important to consider when picking shelving for your commercial kitchen. The application of the shelf will also dictate the style that is needed:

  • Vented: shelf design allows for easier loading and unloading of product, as well as good air circulation for drying and temperature regulation (to help prevent mold!). Vented shelving is also generally lower in weight which allows for easier mobility
  • Solid: shelf design is ideal for messy areas like food prep and ware-washing to control spills and store small items because the surface is easy to clean
