Skandia Uprights are the side panels that support Skandia Shelves. Their ingenious design allows you to add an entire bay of shelves in minutes simply by adding one upright. Made to correspond with our 16" shelves, you can create a custom solution to fit your space. Use the 82" height for creating a custom built-in shelving effect. When creating a solution that uses four or more uprights, balance and secure it vertically by attaching an Aluminum or White Cross Brace within every other section.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love Skandia Purchased Skandia 20 years ago to cover a wall in a den like room. Like the 16 inch shelves because they will accomodate books and photos on the same shelf. Over the past 20 years we have moved five times and have added Skandia drawers and shelves along the way. Used the drawers originally to hold extensive music collection. Every move has had storage challenge. Now use drawers as dressers with lots of shelves above. Skandia has solved issues in every place we have lived. Very versital.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice but pricey Skandia shelving is a nice, flexible solution for shelving needs. It is easy to assemble and sturdy, but for the quality and look, it is pricey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skandia is timeless shelving I first used Skandia shelving in Europe for inventory storage. When I opened a retail store here in TX it was perfect for my merchandise displays. Now I use it at home in my office and garage. It is so flexible and can be re-used and reconfigured when circumstances change. I am thankful that the Container Store still offers this great system. And what's more, the service at our local Container Store is just excellent!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and flexability I knew this product from YEARS ago and amazingly, it has maintained its quality and ease of assembly and adjustment....well, that's a function of the excellent and simple design but still.. I will say that there are NO, if I didn't remember how to do this w/ the best approach, that would not have been good. I did go on line and they were there w/ a few tips but an assumption, from the pictures at least, that there would be two of you to assemble. Not always so and I managed the thing by myself. A few more tips on where to put strategic shelves would have been helpful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Skandia I have been buying Skandia shelving since you first started selling it. I appreciate that it did take up allot of space in each store so I understand you removing it but I love the fact that I can still order and receive/purchase it from the Container Store. I don't mind waiting for it either because I am always redesigning what I have, just adding to it. Thanks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SKANDIA Our first set was purchased from a store in Dallas in 1991. Now,after moving 3 times and adding more sets, I consider this shelving heirloom furniture. They have held encyclopedia sets , reference books, many old computers and teenage boys for these 18 years without turning or sagging or injury. I just ordered this new set for my sewing room. I can adjust them anyway I want, and I know they will endure

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over 10 years old and still looking good My husband and I created a wall of shelves for our den using Skandia shelving, including a L-shaped desk. They've been there for well over 10 years now and they still look and work great. I like the open look and feel they give, and they're super sturdy. The great thing about them is we can disassemble them and take them with us if we move, or we can give them to one of our sons later on. Well-made product.

Community Q&A

My current uprights measure 23-3/4"wide x 84" tall and use shelving that measures 23-1/2" deep x 36" wide. Which uprights are used?

The uprights have a part or patient #2577138. Thanks!
Asked by: ericstoufer
If I'm not mistaken, there are two kinds of Skandia shelving. The original is made in Europe and sold by the Container Store. The uprights come in 12” wide and 16” wide. If there's a 24” upright, I haven't seen it. There's also Skandia shelving that's made in the USA, and the two products are not compatible, size wise. You might want to Google it or call the Container Store for advice. If you don't have any luck, try the 16" wide uprights and simply lay the shelves on top of the pins, with the excess 8" part of the shelf facing away from the wall. Without the security of the Skandia metal tab in groove setup, you'll have to be careful to load the shelves toward the back so they won't tip.

What is the depth of the supports (around an 1")?

I know the width is 16" Need the depth of the supports to make sure I have enough room for the supports and the width of the shelves when the whole thing is built. Thanks.
