WARNING

I bought these from Homebase and they are supplied with only 6 brackets and the instructions refer to 8.

Took back for a refund.

B&q do very similar shelving for £10. The quality is much better and they are much easier to put together as it's just screws and bolts.

I have fitted two in my shed and screwed to the wall they are solid as a rock, ive got tools and old tins of paint in them

Would strongly reccomend getting the B&q version over this.

Are they strong enough to put a fish tank which gonna be about 100kg total?


The total weight allowance is supposedly 200kg but that is 50kg per shelf. I wouldn't want to put a fish tank on these.

These are ok I have a couple in the hut , a bit shoogly but once a couple of heavy boxes on the bottom it gives it a solid standing ! Don't make it top heavy !
These are excellent if they are screwed to the wall. If not then they do have some side to side wobble potential.

Edit: They are a bit fiddly to put up and you do need to tighten the bolts about every year

Good price!
Brought 4 of these for new shed. Pain to build with fiddly small bolts etc. Once built, I bolted them together to get a sturdier structure and put them along one one wall and fixed them to the back wall of the shed. Now it's pretty strong but you will need to 'balance' out the weight distribution on the shelves.
They’re not very high either. Should be good for a green house I think. I bought 2 built half and have given up, as I have no idea what you use it for

I use two of these bolted together for more height / shelves and use it for all of my computer equipment, works so well.

Only if you don't intend to keep the fish (or tank) if you catch my drift 😏
Only 10 (norm price) in Ikea and they do covers too for them
Bought two and put all the shelves into one frame. Could also build higher using two to make a taller one, bearing in mind max 200kg and would then be ~25kg per shelf

Just checked that.. That's more narrower and not as strong

I screwed 3 of these shelves together and put no where near the max amount of weight distributed and all the shelves toppled over early hours in the morning whilst we were asleep . I came down to find utter carnage in my garage . Went straight to Costco and bought the proper heavy duty shelving around £120 ish . Honestly don’t waste your money on these flimsy shelving as they do wobble if not screwed to a wall and are made of very thin metal which will bend if your not careful whilst building shelf or if you give it a push or place something heavy on it .

Stil, you'd make the money back from by uploading the youtube video, as it collapses under the weight.
Suggestion. Maybe good to use a bit of thread locker on bolts if these tend to come loose.

I've got 4 from b&q also £10 each. Easy to put together and I bolted them all together and put full length of shed.
There great for the cash.
Sorry can't comment on homebase ones.

Agreed a little fiddly but the 2nd one I did in about 20 minutes

Ye first one takes that extra 5 to 10 mins but once that's done each one takes about 15 to 20 mins just because there is 32 nuts/bolts to pop in by hand. Then a quick fly round with spanner to tighten.
Worth the cash.
I had 2 of these and they were utter In the end I spent the extra and bought this from Screwfix.

screwfix.com/p/h…17r


They are listed at being able to take 200kg per shelf, but strongly suggest bolting to the wall for extra stability.
Instructions are a bit pants but they're quite easy to assemble.. ad NO bolts to worry about, just a hammer and maybe a flat bladed screwdriver to put them together..
I have 6 of these in various closets. They're rubbish as freestanding units but as many others have said if you can bolt them to the wall (or have a sheet of ply you can screw to the back) they become entirely useable.

Putting together is a massive faff particularly if you're used to the slot-in tool free types. The Screwfix ones mentioned above for example are at least 100x better in all respects.

BUT they're super cheap. Each time I needed another one I vowed not to buy this rubbish again and get the better one, then left the shop with these.

True story and I second the experience.

Maybe you didn't build it properly. My 4 have been up for 5 years now and not fell over or even came close to falling over...

I had the same issue but I called Customer services at Homebase who acknowledged that the instruction leaflet was wrong and that you only required 6 brackets. They e-mailed me the correct leaflet and it all went together perfectly.
