We very recently purchased some Metro shelving as temporary storage areas during processing. As far as my research into the topic could tell, the chrome plating is acceptable for long-term storage. There was not any research into the suitability of “Super Brite” chromate finishes. I was also advised that for long-term storage, you want to cover the wire shelving with corrugated board or coroplast, as the shelving will end up damaging heavy archival boxes.
