The Benefits of Corner Shelving

If someone asks you how to get the most out of corners, you might think of scoring from a set-piece in football or licking the lid of a Muller yoghurt. At G-Rack, we think about maximising floor space with corner shelving units. 

When setting up storage, it's easy to forget about the corners of the room. It's an underutilised zone that can make a big difference to your space, whether it's a garage, shed, stockroom or warehouse. 

Here's a quick guide to help you create extra storage space with a little help from some corner racking. 

Benefits of corner racks

There are so many reasons to include a corner unit in your storage set-up. They will:

  • Create more storage space
  • Keep your items organised
  • Look great in any setting 

First, let's take a look at how they create that extra room. The G-Rack corner shelving solution fits perfectly into corners, turning otherwise wasted space into valuable storage for your home or business. 

Our corner shelving unit will help organise your items over five tiers of robust shelving. Our shelves come in a range of heights, widths and depths so you can find the right solution for your space. 

G-Rack Corner Shelf

Corner racks are perfect for storing tools in the garage or shed, shopping in the pantry, or shoes in the bedroom. Getting organised has a positive effect on wellbeing, too. Studies show 80% of people in the UK believe the state of their home affects their mood. Imagine the peace of mind when your trip itinerary doesn't involve organising the house when you return. A little organisation goes a long way! 

They're equally effective in an industrial setting, with high load weights and adjustable designs that are the perfect addition to a storage racking system. 

When it comes to business storage, you want to be making the most out of every inch of your space. Our corner racks will increase your floor space, giving workers and machinery more room to operate and move around safely. 

It's not all about the practicality - shelves have to look the part, too. That's why our racks come in a range of vibrant, powder-coated finishes to match the colour scheme in your home or give a professional look for your business. We also offer a great value, anti-corrosion galvanised finish. 

Why use G-Rack corner shelving 

At G-Rack, we like to keep storage simple. That's why we offer high-quality storage solutions at the very best prices. We design our corner shelving products to help you utilise every inch of floor space while providing convenient designs to make life easier. 

Let's talk build. Our shelves have a robust metal construction, with stainless steel beams supporting the 0.6mm MDF boards for extra durability. This allows each corner shelf to have a load weight of 175 kg per tier, that's a huge 875 kg per rack. We test our shelving units to guarantee load weight so you can store your valuables with confidence.

These units also come with some accessories to take your storage to the next level. We throw in a set of rubber feet to attach to the bottom of the steel legs to increase stability and protect floors/carpets from damage.

We also include bay connectors that allow you to connect your free standing corner unit to other shelving racks you may have on each wall to make a storage shelving system.

Now, we know that no one likes messing about with the fiddly bits. That's why all of our shelving and racking feature an easy-build boltless construction, so you don't need to worry about the nuts and bolts. You can build your unit in minutes by slotting the beams together and tapping them securely into place using a rubber mallet. 

It gets better. Our corner shelving is fully adjustable, allowing you to alter shelf height should your storage needs change. It means you can adapt your shelves if you need to store some taller items in one-tier.
