reduced from £9.98 & £14.98 respectively.

This is nationwide as i checked.

IF YOU CANNOT SEEM TO FIND ANY IN YOUR LOCAL, I would suggest getting a member of staff to go on the RF system for you, get them to simply type in ' floating shelf' in the search tab. and they will easilly see all the ones listed in the price column as '£5.00 & £7.00' next to that they will see the stock figures and can hunt them down for you, as they may be in overstock. (this will litterally take 2 minutes of their time!).

I would post the ean/barcodes but zooming in on my phone does not give enough detail.

See post 43 for some helpful barcodes!

Great deal!
Cheap because they aren't much use?
Things fall off the ends, and too deep for DVD and Blueray storage
Just in for some DIY. Thanks OP.
Have some heat.
A great price, for good looking shelving.
I installed some just last weekend - which was in the garage for about a month, having bought them during Homebases 20% off weekend... (not as Cheap)
I got a 'very similar' one to this in Home Bargains for £4.99.
I got some from Ikea which were dearer for the same so heat added!

Holds my Rush cd's nicely

jasee- i dont think these kind of shelves are intended to be used to store dvd's and cd's. Well unless u lay them down flat.

thanks besford- i realised as i just wrote my previous comment.
Thanks. Had 3 oak from the high wycombe store. 7 left on shelf plus two of the 80 cm in beech. Everything else sold out.
How much weight can these shelves hold? Would they be able to hold a few school books, folders and ornaments at the same time?

lol, these are storage shelves, you put boxes of stuff on them

if you were to put dvd's or br's on them then you can attach book ends (eg metal ones)

depends on the wall its fixed to - we have a similar ikea one and thats been up for 4 years and holds boxes of stuff that weighs approx 20 kg
Can these shelves be shortened. e.g. from 80cm to 60cm?

psmith222- no u cannot shorten these because of where the support attaches.

Can't believe people fall for the homebase 15% & 20% fortnightly events.

Daft statement, they're shelves! You put things on them. Buy some book ends if things fall off the end. Might not be much use to you but to others they might be.

Thanks to "Hank2spoons".
Good spot mate
Heat added. Thanks for posting. I hope they have some left in stock at my local B&Q.
do they come with fixing brackets?
i looked at some a month ago going cheap, but you had to buy the brackets seperate
I think these come with the fixings. The fixing is like a metal plate with 2 poles sticking out that slide onto recesses in the shelf itself and then held on by 2 small screws.

Which pressure washer would that be? Just went into B&Q after reading your post and they don't seem to have any at £25.

Thankyou for letting me know, that's a lot more weight than I thought they would hold - just have to see now if they have any left in my local shop.
Can someone post the EAN please? Stores that I have called don't know about them. Is this old stock or have they changed supplier?
Got my beech ones in asda 3 for £16 because it was end of stock

Full price at B&Q harlow...



Its a national pricing, they would have been a fiver if you took them to the till.

Picked up 4 at swansea morfa.
Gah, what a wasted trip. Nothing left on shelves.

sab- tell the staff to stop being lazy either get them to scan them or get then to look it up on rf system. Its so simple for them to do.
shelves were empty
FLOATING SHELVES? . .......Do these need to be attatched to a wall?
