"Haha '2 man build' - I ended up having to put these together on my own and was pulling my hair out, they were challenging with only two hands!!!
That said, I managed it in about 1 1/2 hours and they are well strong. Don't think they are going to end up being all that weather-resistant (they are in an outdoor shed) but value-wise, they were the cheapest but biggest Screwfix do and we're chuffed with the final result."
"I fitted out my garage with two sets of the 619mm deep shelves about a year ago. They were pretty easy to knock together although they are heavy and it took a couple of days but have totally transformed my garage. They look very good and I can now find all the stuff that was on the floor. They have not warped or bent despite some considerable abuse - by me. I have another garage in a block left over from my first house ( 1970's ) and am going to fit this one out in the same way. This is a good product at a very good price!"
"I ordered 2 shelving systems (2 lots of 3 shelving bays)..code 91486.
I was very pleased with communications from Screwfix from start to finish. So polite and helpful and they did exactly what they said they would do.
The assembly instructions weren't very comprehensive (mainly a sheet of photographs). That said, it didn't take long to determine what went where and with no nuts and bolts to fiddle with, it took a surprisingly short time to erect all 3 shelving bays. The only tool needed was a wooden mallet... couldn't be simpler! They are really solid and sturdy and I'm very pleased with them -good value for money (and I'd shopped around a fair bit before buying!). Thanks Screwfix! Woodmeister, Somerset."
"I have owned and used these shelves for over a year now and have no problems whatsoever. They are strong and durable, not sure about them if they got wet though. It took me a short while to work out how they were assembled, then with the use of a rubber mallet they didn't take very long to assemble on my own."
"simple enough to put together in principle but reality a bit different. you need a rubber mallet and pair of pliers and a swear jar. the problem is building the second tier using the shelf brackets as joining bridges. the corner angle supports tend to very in there size so you line one side up only to find the other side out of line. after many frustrated times with two of us trying to manhandle the brackets a pair of pliers was brought into use to bring the sides into line (hard to explain but when you get to put one up you will soon see what I mean). once up stable enough so for the money not too bad, worry that the chipboard shelves might bow when the air gets damp ( in a garage), but will wait and see; might be worth people putting a stain or similar on them if likely to be subject to wet."
"although it was easy to put together. this is not a shelving system that is one unit... its three separate bays that stand next to each other. there are no cross members so they are very wobbly and I have no confidents they can take any weight."
instructions (when found) refer to different shelving with 1.8M uprights - very poor.
This shelving is supplied with the uprights in two (900mm) halves and no means of connecting them rigidly together other than using a cross beam which wobbles- I can see the whole lot collapsing if the top is heavy loaded - very poor.
Basically its cheaply made, expensive to buy and nasty - its going back for a refund as can buy better elsewhere."
"I was hoping to receive heavy duty shelvin. However, these are the same light wieght units you can buy in DIY shops. They come with half corner posts which need connecting with the cross members, this task would take 2 people."
