From the product description:
It is recommended that to prolong the lifespan of the shelving, you treat any MDF surfaces every 12 months with a suitable weather resistant stain or coating to protect it from any potential adverse weather or storage conditions which can cause moisture or mould to accumulate and damage the units.

Give it a wipe over with Teak Oil or similar before assembling, let it soak in, keep applying thin coats until it wont absorb any more... Rub it off (fnar), let it try then assemble. Sticky job, but once done it will not rot for a long time.

Got one of these. Really good for £20 (which is what I think I paid for it a long time back). Easy to assemble and sturdy when up.

I'v got mould over the shelves after 6 months so you better protect the plywood shelves to avoid it. Also assembling this without bolts is silly and pointless.

Want something like this for garage but prefer mental shelves. Good price tho
Over even metal
No be deal. I have similar design but from Costco. Though you reckon it’s heavier duty.

This is a cheaper way for me to get some raw materials I needed to build something else

Definitely don't listen to this comment. I have a few sets of these in my garage, have had them for a few years. They have a lot of weight on them and I have had no issue at all. More weight makes them stronger in a way as they are weighted down a bit and not so flimsy. Also, zero mould. They work great for extra storage.

I also have a heavier duty version of this style in my lockup, click in and they have a serious amount of weight on them. No issues at all. No mould either.

Maybe this person isn't very good at assembling and also has a damp garage.
Need the matching 90x45 but guess this is good if you can make with the size

Stay away from bolt system takes a day to assemble one rack
In no way is this heavy duty shelving.The 875kg is divided amongst the 5 shelves and equals to just 175kg weight per shelf so it is more like lightweight shelving. 375kg weight per shelf is widely classed as heavy duty.
Look identical to the Clarke shelves I got from Machine Mart (more expensive there though). They've been great. Not sure I'd like to test the 875kg limit on them though. For boxes and tools etc they're ideal.

I bought similar shelves that have MDF. First winter with them, covered in green and black mold. Outside Garage is well ventilated. Will probably have to replace. From what I read mdf has this issue, maybe just not suited for outside?.Does plywood have the same problems?

MDF is not suitable for outdoors/wet, but in a shed/garage it can be protected. Plywood has the same issues, you need marine/weatherproof ply.

Your MDF can (probably) be recovered... Wait for weather to improve, dry it out (pop it in the greenhouse if you have one to speed this up). Dust mask and gloves ON. Scrape off as much mould as you can.
HOT sunny day, mix Warm water 10:1 with bleach. With a scourer rub the MDF down with this mix on all sides/edges. Let it sit and air dry.
Repeat.

Now sand the mdf back (sanding block and some 100grit will do it.

Now apply teak oil/creosote etc in lots of thin coats, let it soak in and touch dry, Repeat until no more soaks in, wipe down/off with a lint free cloth

Its now ready to put it back and use.

Reapply the teak oil/creosote once a year, doesn't take long and will prevent mould/mildew forming.
It’s £17.99 on eBay that’s normal price for this shelf

Thanks very much for this. I didn't consider the damp issue for the shelves when I put them in as nothing else in there,wood or otherwise is affected.
What an excellent price, just ordered four. I've got the central heating boiler and a couple of radiators in the garage/feline adventure house for our 12 cats, so never had a problem with mould on the shelves. Loads of fur though!
Thanks OP. I'm on the lookout for some decent shelving for the garage.

Shame it's only 150cm, could have done with 180cm, but should be ok.

Odd that the corner shelving is 180cm but this is 150 though.

Hate these non bolt versions


They do take some time to put together.
It's solid and works as it should but... setting it up is one of the most frustrating things I've ever done! Especially if you're doing the tall 5 shelf setup, slotting the metal clips into the slots 2 at a time is like a cruel joke! ... But it does the job, maybe have a drink or 2 before starting to build it!
Pretty decent price got a huge garage full of junk and have quite a bit of shelving but this is ideal to surround the garage sides and nothing on the floor. Bought 3, thanks heat.
BTW why oil every year ?

Loads of excess paint in the garage, if its really that necessary I will just paint them as this is the best kind of protection.
Oil is best for cosmetic protection on wood you want to see, these are just shelves so I not going to be admiring the finish on them.
Anyone tried buying 3 and making 2 racks that stand around 225cm tall?
