Satisfied (but a little room for improvement) I bought the InterMetro Posts, 3 shelves & 4 rolling casters to set-up a shelving unit to contain my computer, UPS, a sub-woofer, cable modem, firewall and other misc. computer equipment. Everything would have been perfect if the poles had been 1 little inch taller, but even without that inch, it's great having the bigger pieces off the floor and easy to clean/dust around. The open shelving makes it so much easier to run the wires and connect the bits & pieces to each other. May 9, 2010
You can get functional... When you look for storage you generally have to choose pretty or functional. The container store is not cheap but for a 36" wide x 14" deep set of adjustable height shelves you'll get what you need. Yes, they should come in stainless and silver, not black, white and silver. Yes, you'd prefer them to be less expensive. And yes you'd like them to have 14" under shelf baskets. But if you need something to make a nook functional, this setup works. 1/8" or even 1/4" expanded hole plate might be better than 1/2" gap wire, but just put 1/8" lexan on top if you need it to be shelfy.

InterMetro post design change The InterMetro post is a hollow steel tube with grooves spaced an inch apart to hold the shelves. It is coated with durable epoxy (or chrome plated). In an earlier purchase several years ago, the posts had evenly spaced grooves. Now, there is an extra groove every 8 inches. This is a nuisance if you are trying to set the shelf to a height where it overlaps this extra groove. June 16, 2011
Crummy Paint I got these in silver. They come as 4 bundled together. Didn't notice until I got them home that there was a large dark mark on one of them, as if from rubbing against something. On another one, on the bottom, the paint looked like it was coming off. Structurally, they seem like they would hold up. But I'm giving a 2 because of the hassle of getting an entire set of these things, shelves and casters home and now I have to take it back to exchange it? I think all of it will be returned.

Can I put a shelf at the top of the post?

Or does it have to slide down one or more inches? So if I buy four 34 1/2" posts, can I have a shelf at 34 1/2"?

Do these posts accommodate casters?

I read somewhere else that intermetro has two kinds of posts: those that have leveling feet and those that accommodate casters; and that casters will only fit with the posts for casters. Which are these? Thanks.

Answer: 
There is a plug that you have to remove at the base of the poles in order to install the casters. If you are purchasing these in-store you can request to have the plugs removed on-site. If you are ordering over the telephone, you can also request to have the plugs removed.

I own an Intermetro unit with 62" posts. Can I dismantle it and have the posts cut in half to create 2 separate, shorter units? I want to top one with a butcher block, and put the other in a different room.
