Yes, we use a system with open-wire shelving for our chemicals by Intermetro. It's great. It comes in stainless and that works well with corrosives. Stainless is more expensive, but it's worth it. Another option is polyshelving. You can buy ledges for the shelves for safety during an earthquake. Ours went through the Northridge quake and everything on the shelving was fine, but for one broken bottle, unlike most of the stuff in the department and on the campus. If you have any questions I would be happy to answer. There is a catalog on their web page. Look on page 92.

Does anyone have any experience with using this type of system for chemical storage? http://www.spacesaver.com/more-success-stories/
If you do have experience, do you have a rough estimate of cost?
Thanks very much,
