Plastic Utility Carts

Their smooth, plastic surfaces make them easy to clean and protect them from rust and chip. Most of all, plastic carts are lightweight and are ideal for the handling of many hazardous materials, sharp items, and especially fragile items that may be prone to scratching.

Stainless steel industrial carts also fair well under the most hazards conditions but they do cost quite a bit more than the other carts mentioned above. Stainless steel shelves on the other hand, are seen as the best piece of equipment for harsh environments in commercial storage. What truly sets it apart is the fact that stainless steel can outlast plastic, wood, or aluminum. Stainless steel shelving is a long term solution to moisture and corrosion. Businesses such as restaurants, laboratories, and hospitals prefer stainless steel surfaces that are easy to clean and sterile. A good scrub down with some cleanser or a steam tunnel is all that is needed to get a cart back on the job.
