Want to know more about Metal Bookcases

A variety of metal bookcases are available

Hundreds of types of bookcases are available, including metal versions in a variety of shapes and sizes, including low, squat units and narrow, tower cases. All provide a stable, rigid structure for holding between two and six shelves, many with a weight rating of 180 to 200 pounds. Most sturdy bookcases of metal have adjustable shelves, while others have permanent ones or a combination of the two. Many feature oversized bottom shelves to hold books like atlases or have shelving with depths of 12 inches to hold 3-ring binders.

Stationary bookcases in metal are available, as are versions on casters, to provide mobile storage stations around the office. As pieces of storage furniture for hefty office, school, or library reading material, many units consist of tempered, 22-gauge steel with fully welded joints or double-wall construction. Although open-architecture structures are available, many have closed backs of tempered steel sheeting to add to the sturdiness of frames.

Some of the more stylish steel bookcases

Many two to six-shelf units have straightforward styling, while others offer more visual flair and appeal as pieces of office furniture, particularly when combined with other materials. Some attractive metal bookcases consist of pine shelves on bolt-through, cast iron frames with crisscross framing members. The units are up to 90 inches in height, so many come with accompanying ladders to reach the top shelves. Other steel bookcases come with charming glass doors in a barrister-style arrangement with integrated finger pulls and safety locks for protecting the contents. Some include rack-style units with latticed sides and contoured railings in a contemporary, minimalist design that provides versatile storage not only for offices, but also for home pantries or bathrooms.

Sturdy bookcases can be colorful

Many steel bookshelves come in black powder coating or enameling, which suits just about any decor, whether traditional or contemporary. Besides black bookcases, many other colors are also available, including different shades of white and vibrant tones like red, yellow, green, and blue. Like many metal desks and other pieces of office furniture, metal bookshelves also come in stylish, traditional shades like burgundy, forest green, charcoal, and gray.

Brands

Choose from many respected makers of metal bookcases well-known for their furniture designs and styling. Some top manufacturers include the following:

  • HON®
  • SAFCO®
  • Sandusky LEE®
  • Tennsco®
