While there are several different materials that you can choose from, stainless steel garage cabinets give you the most bang for your buck.
Wood can chip, plastic can crack, but stainless steel is highly durable and can handle the hardest bumps and the biggest bangs. The worst that can happen to stainless steel garage cabinets is that they might get small dings in them. Wood and plastic, on the other hand, may need replacing if damaged enough.
Easy Clean Up
If paint thinner, oil or other harsh materials are spilled on wood or plastic, there is a strong chance that the shelving will be stained and damaged. With stainless steel garage cabinets, clean up of any spilled materials is easy and the chance of permanent staining is almost zero.
Locking Things Up
If you have valuable tools or hazardous materials, then stainless steel garage cabinets are your best option. Adding a padlock to your cabinets make them virtually impenetrable. With wood and plastic shelving, doors are much easier to break into.
