Product Information

Originally designed for commercial use, Metro shelves and posts combine to create shelves with the weight-bearing capacity to handle heavy equipment in any room of your home. With just a few steps, you can create a custom solution with shelves that can hold up to 800 pounds! The shelves are adjustable, giving you the freedom to move them up or down to create your desired storage space.Customize your unit by adding the shelf dividers for added storage space, and if being used in a pantry, you can add shelf liners so nothing slips through the ventilated shelves. You can also add industrial casters with brakes for ease of mobility.

  • Chrome-plated solid steel construction
  • Each shelf supports up to 800 pounds
  • Light assembly required; hardware included

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Only five stars? I just brought the components home today. I added two shelves for a total of six. The store put the wheels on for me - two locking and two non-locking. I was able to assemble the whole thing by myself (58-year-old female) using only a pair of snips to cut the ties and a ladder to lift the shelves onto the poles (I'm 5'3"). I put the first two shelves in place with the unit on its side, then tipped it upright and lifted the other shelves onto the poles. It was a bit of a stretch, but totally doable! End result is that I am beyond thrilled with these! They are super sturdy, including the wheels, and I can swing the whole unit 90 degrees if I need access to part of the garage. Everything is visible and accessible and NEAT! I even adjusted one of the shelves after it was all assembled, because I wanted more room on the bottom shelf. It would have been easier with two people, but, again, it was doable. It's not the least expensive shelving out there, but after reading other reviews on shelving units that collapsed or weren't level or had a host of other problems, I'm so glad I invested in this. I wish I had room for more of them! August 8, 2016
