Mobile Glass Storage


Sometimes people consider placing their glass storage onto wheels.  It is better to avoid wheels on glass storage for several reasons.

You would need heavy duty wheels to cope with the weight. Glass is 2.5 times as heavy as water, so it does not take much volume to make a really heavy glass case.

Example of mobile glass storage


You do not need to move all your glass at once - a piece at at time is all that is needed. It will be safer, and in the end easier, to build your work bench nearer the glass.

There are risks breakage while moving. The heavy glass store will vibrate the glass within the storage, and any snags or obstructions while moving the glass will increase the risk of breakage.

The structure can become too heavy to move and so defeat the original intention.
