How strong are these shelves?

I am thinking of the library shelves for my daughter's room. Books and piggy banks, tchotchkes, etc. How much weight can these shelves hold? I don't plan on maxing them out, but its good to know. Thank you!
Asked by: SarahJNY
When installed properly (into studs where possible and using our wall anchors where studs aren't present), our elfa solutions can support up to 75 pounds per linear foot. We recommend having one of our designers create a design for you to ensure you have all the components you need for an elfa solution.

How much weight can this system support?

If only the top track is mounted to the wall, how stable are the lower shelves? How much weight can it support? Will the vertical tracks sway if bumped?
Asked by: ScootersEverywhere
When installed properly (into studs where possible and using our wall anchors where studs aren't present), our Elfa solutions can support up to 75 lbs. per linear foot. The stability of an Elfa Easy Hang solution actually is enhanced the greater the weight placed on it. In an earthquake prone or high traffic area where the solutions is likely to be bumped or jostled, we offer our Elfa Hang Standard Wall Clips to provide additional piece of mind.

is there something at the end of the shelves to hold books in place/ prevent them from toppling over?

Asked by: mawm
This particular design does not include the elfa bookends, but we do have some available for purchase that you can add to keep your books upright.

Can you stagger the placement of the shelves (or leave one shelf out entirely) - in case I want a larger height for one shelf?

I want to put a record player on one of the shelves but i need space that to lift the lid of the player.
Asked by: ctlee4
Yes, the shelves can be adjusted as needed.

I want this but in a wood colour----can I do that? price differnece?

Asked by: kimasa
We can customize the design with a different color shelf, you can give us a call at 1-800-733-3532 and we would be more than happy to help. There might be a slight difference in price with the wood color, that will be determined when we change the shelving.

weight limits?

someone else asked but no specific weight limits were given. How much can each shelf hold?
Asked by: mks11
We do not have a weight limit for Elfa shelves, it can hold about anything as long as the weight is evenly distributed.

Are there weight limits for the 8'x16"x7' shelving unit? My plan is to use it for my library of books and media.

Asked by: JoannW
When installed properly (into wood studs where possible and using our wall anchors where studs aren't present), the weight of books and media can be supported by an elfa solution with no problem.
