Great deal
Very good deal. I literally just got a three pack the same size from Racking solutions. Cost me over £100 although they are blue and slightly better looking.
Having a quick look at some of the other varients from other manufacturers, who state they are heavy duty. The stated max load for each shelf seem is almost or more than double with this product.
Surely that weight per shelf is bogus?
Will be ideal in my garage. Will order, thanks!
Would not like to stand next to this with 1.8 ton on it
What is the difference single post and double post
Perfect, ordered one to go in the loft. Thanks OP heat added.

Return P&P on these would be expensive

Any anti mould paint should do the job. I used left over heavy duty Leyland floor paint which worked well.
How long have you had the shelf after you did the job? I only ask as a quick google reveals lots of issues with mdf attracting mould outside in sheds. Alot of the products seem to warp the mdf or just don't work.

Had 5 years from Racking Solutions shelves in an out building, a little mold on a few shelves due to damp, but otherwise metalwork still like new. Recently purchased more - great product!

Anyone know if this is of similar quality?

Looks very very similar to this Screwfix Heavy Duty Shelving - which is 2 for £50.

If it's pretty much the same then it's not that amazing of a deal to be honest.

I think the only benifit is free delivery for one. For screwfix it will be free delivery from £50.
Btw, i got 4 of Screwfix one which is very strong and reliable.

U got the 2 shelf config and the specs (if true) it is designed to handle almost twice the amount of weight (if evenly distributed along the shelf).

200kg vs 362kg.

To me that suggests that it might be better quality. However i have not seen both together so, who knows.

Whole shelving unit holds over 1.8 tonnes??? YEH RIGHT!!! LMAO...

Also - how does the removeable top part attach to the bottom part? Surely that bit must be really flimsy?

Some useful excerpts from the reviews:

"it was missing a side brace (I see another reviewer had the same problem). I called Amazon to send a replacement but they don't have a procedure for doing so."

"Update: the replacement unit arrived...and it was missing the same side brace! The quality control on this model is terrible. Given the extra hassle of dealing with the return issues and general annoyance of having incomplete units, I really can't recommend ordering this model from Amazon."

---

"it was easy to assemble. However I got to the last particle board insert for the top shelf to find that its warped."

---

"one of the vertical metal brackets was bent when I received the package. The outside of the package was clearly damaged at some point. Luckily, the bend didn't go down far enough to compromise function for me, but it's still frustrating to buy something new, only to see it has been damaged."

---

"any kind of chemical spill would easily impregnate the board."

"...I did not enjoy assembling this shelving unit."

---

"The instructions are OK but lack detail around sorting the components, and how the two verticals come together."

"The double post shelves can be assembled as a single stack or two side to side but there are only end pieces supplied for the single stack configuration which seems a little mean. You could use the top pieces are additional feet if your flooring is easily damaged but then they wouldn't match!"
I think the bonus of this over the screwfix model is the adaptability splitting it in half is perfect for me. Always get a few negative reviews. The majority seem good..
As for reviews I noticed this one from a top reviewer..

You receive a flatpack unit, the box it comes in is heavy, which indicates its a study unit.

Building the unit is fairly straight forward, there are no screws or bolts, all you’ll need is a hammer to tap the bits together.

The instructions are very easy to follow.
Each metal part slots in to a grove type fixing, its straight forward and one of the easiest I’ve build.

Its good quality, its a good medium Duty Industrial Shelving Rack, which is well described. its sturdy and solid, I’ve a few commercial shelving units, which cost a lot more than this, they are much more solid, however they were five times the price, and this is good enough for the lighter stuff I need to store.

This is an ideal unit for home office, shed, garage or light storage, the price is amazing for what you get.

Very pleased, its size is perfect, can’t believe it fitted in to my work rooms space, couldn’t have fitted better.

You have obviously done some in depth research on this topic. Can you give a link for a better version of this product @ the similar price point. It would be very much appreciated.
These are junk, don't waste your hard earned. There's a tip near me with 4 of mine, 2 still in the boxes

Are you serious - did you buy the double or the single? I was thinking of taking a chance on the single one - the double one looks too flimsy a design to me. I need something for storage. What was wrong with yours?

Bit tired didn't notice that! Did open up the reviews about 130 or so mostly positive, does seem parts can be missing at times. I will leave my order open. What I will do though is kick up a fuss if any parts are missing, amazon customer service pretty good usually to be fair. Will have to paint boards for sure in damp metal shed.

I decided to order some of the single post ones. The Screwfix ones are smaller than what I want and have some bad reviews so thought I'd take a chance. If they're crap, will send them back.
