Stainless Steel Shelf. Shelf’s Mantel (portable stainless steel TIG welding)

JW Portable Welding & Repairs offers repairs on kitchen equipment in restaurants and other commercial kitchens via in-place welding. We accommodate our welding equipment and welding techniques to fit your needs.


This is a very popular repair and we receive many calls for this type of repairs because the mantels cannot hold the weight of the containers hanging on them. The mantel usually breaks and the containers fall to the bottom of the fridge shelf, making it messy and difficult to work with. We have used our smallest portable welding machine to TIG weld stainless steel sheet metal in order to provide a connection between the shelf’s mantel and the shelf door.


In regard to this specific weld, we had to properly clean the welded parts before starting the repair. We then had to position an oversized weld with correct penetration to cover the gap that is seen in our photo gallery. Lastly, we cleaned the entire welded area to achieve a “food grade” quality weld.  An experienced stainless steel welder would notice that we have used a more advanced technique to clean this weld.

JW Portable Welding & Repairs worked on this project during the normal business hours of the kitchen. We had accommodated appropriately to our surroundings (kitchen staff preparing food nearby) and minimized interruptions to those working around us.

Our technological advantage, efficiency and effectiveness sets us apart in the industry.
