"For reference the chipboard used in these shelves is only 7mm thick, sits on a 7mm lip in the metal framing and only has one cross brace to stop the from from splaying. The cross brace will only add support once the chipboard distorts under load. I really cannot see these shelves carrying their design weight (175kg) even if evenly distributed.
I'm not overly fussed as if they do start to fail I will uprate the shelving material to something more robust."

Review 2 for RB UK Boltless Freestanding Galvanised Shelving 5-Tier
"Very poor quality product, don't be fooled into thinking just because it's painted orange and blue it's warehouse quality. The clips that are supposed to hold the frames together are softer than bean cans and I defy any one to get them to work correctly. Even the slightest tap with a rubber mallet as recommended, has then bending out if shape. Returning the three sets I purchased, hope Screwfix speaks to the supplier RB UK to sort this poor quality out."
