The Benefits of NSF Shelving
In this brief overview, we’ve shared some background information about the NSF, so that you can learn why it’s a trusted badge of cleanliness and safety. At Seville Classics, we’re proud to carry a variety of NSF-certified products, including high-quality steel shelving units. We recommend using our shelving in your kitchens, offices, and industrial warehouses.
What is the NSF?
Short for the National Sanitation Foundation, the NSF was founded in 1944 as a set of standards for luncheonette and water fountain hygiene. Today, the public health organization is a global force for good, with dozens of safety standards for food equipment, appliances, and many other products. Any item that meets their rigorous standards is stamped with the “NSF” logo.
What is NSF Certification?
To qualify for NSF certification, your product must undergo testing by the organization’s independent inspectors. They evaluate every aspect of your creation, from the manufacturing process to the product materials.
Once they determine that the product has no contaminants and performs as advertised, an NSF auditor visits the manufacturing plant to verify that it meets the same standards. If everything looks consistent, they grant the NSF certification.
Benefits of NSF-Certified Products
At Seville Classics, many of our products are used in commercial and personal kitchens, so they absolutely need to be food-safe. In particular, metal shelving units like the 5-Tier UltraZinc NSF Steel Wire Shelving and the 6-Tier NSF Corner Shelving are perfect for commercial use. With NSF certification, you can be confident that these units meet every criteria for food hygiene and worker safety.
Our steel wire shelving is designed for serious use, and many of our NSF-certified units can support up to 600 pounds per shelf. They’re also constructed with UltraZinc plating, and this guards against corrosion in dry climates. In fact, all Seville Classics shelving comes with a 10-year limited warranty, which protects consumers against any material defects. We believe in our products, and so does the NSF, so you can rely on us to meet exacting standards of quality.
For more than 35 years, Seville Classics has been a leading innovator in home storage. Our heavy-duty NSF shelving is built to last, no matter if it’s used in a commercial kitchen or personal workspace. Visit our blog, Pinterest, or Facebook pages to get inspired!
