Tips for Cold Storage

When it comes to Metro Shelving Product one of the most common questions customer’s ask us is, “What style or finish will hold up best in a wet or cold environment like a cooler or freezer?” We normally give 2 options. Finish should either be the Metroseal3 Epoxy Coated Finish or Stainless Steel.


MetroSeal3 Epoxy Coated Finish (12 year limited time warranty)

Metroseal 3 is applied using an

exclusive state-of-the-art finishing and
coating process that creates an attractive and
corrosion-resistant finish. Metroseal 3 is
enhanced with built-in Microban®
antimicrobial product protection, which
protects the Metroseal 3 coating from
bacteria, mold, mildew and fungi that cause
odors, stains and product degradation. It is a forest green color finish.


Stainless Steel 

Electropolished Type 304 (18-8) stainless steel – the ultimate in corrosion resistance – ideal for damp locations as well as cart washing applications. Stainless steel is unsurpassed for abrasion, gouge, temperature, and corrosion resistance requirements.



Both finishes can hold up to aggressive environments therefore, they are excellent choices when used in cold storage.
