Buying factors to consider

How will you use the metal storage units?

Think about where the units will be placed and who will use them. You stand a better chance of choosing the right storage furniture when you know the usage requirements. You can also take advantage of our 3D rendering service to get a sneak preview of how the storage units look like on your property. This helps with figuring out how many units you need and if they will fit in your designated space.

Pros and cons of metal storage units

The benefits of investing in metal units include durability and security. Metal is a tougher material than plastic or melamine, which means it can take more impact before breaking. Therefore, these units are ideal in high traffic areas where the cabinets will be opened and closed throughout the day.
Furthermore, you can choose units that come with a lock mechanism to protect the files and material stored inside. The quality of these security mechanisms is not comparable to safes, but they are good enough to keep nosy unwanted eyes away from the contents.

The industrial type appearance can be a drawback of metal. We offer styles that make the most of the limitation by adding colour and style to the equation. However, there is only so much that you can do with the nature of the material.


Do you have huge storage needs across a building? Then you need to budget correctly to make sure all storage needs are met. Don’t blow a big part of your budget on a few premium units since some departments will struggle to meet their storage needs.

We offer bulk discounts for larger orders, which means you can make huge savings when buying a quantity of units. Give us a call for more information on what savings we can offer for the metal storage units of interest.


Metal is a very durable material as already discussed, but the way storage units are put together also plays a part towards durability. Inspect the unit when it arrives and look for possible manufacturer faults. However, you don’t have to worry too much, since most reputable stores provide a warranty. Take a look at our product description pages for information about the length of our warranties. We take warranty claims seriously, and strive for a 24 to 48 resolution. We always go the extra mile to provide satisfaction.


Consider the size of the storage units you buy since that plays a role in functionality. Larger units are perfect if you have big storage needs. You can fit in more per piece of furniture and the storage can be centralized to one location.

On the other hand, multiple small units are ideal if you need to spread the storage needs throughout a large building or office floor. Perhaps a mixture of different sizes is best so that you have the flexibility to choose the right unit for a given area.


As mentioned previously style is not a strength of metal storage units, but you can still put some thought into the process. For instance, consider getting the same colour, or match the colour to what furniture already exists in your office.

Take a look at our range of metal storage units with planter boxes. These are perfect for adding some natural greenery to the surroundings. It’s a positive ingredient to the atmosphere of most office spaces.


Q. What are the biggest advantages of metal storage units?

A. They offer better durability, which is perfect for high-traffic areas and long term use. Therefore, you can go for longer before you need to replace furniture in the office.
Security is also another key factor with steel units. The locks on these units are generally stronger than on other types of storage.

Q. How do I know if the metal furniture will fit in my office?

A. Take a look at the dimensions in the product description for information about the size of each model. Don’t try to estimate the size based on the pictures alone.
