Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quality product Good quality and each leg is adjustable for floors that are not perfectly level. Fast shipping October 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great and versatile I'm on my 4th set of Intermetro shelves, and about to get a 5th set. I previously used the plastic kind from a home improvement store - which has hollow plastic tubes for posts. These posts, and all the components, are so helpful in designing storage that fits my needs. I don't have to worry about anything sagging or tipping. I adjust them to fit exactly what I'm storing. They are easy to put together, and have been great for the last year+. I need 2 more sets, but 1 for now. (I actually shouldn't shop at Container Store unsupervised...my poor credit card...). September 20, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product These poles, like the previous shorter poles I already own, are of excellent quality. However, my original poles (I've owned them for about 15 years) are a shiny chrome that matches the shelves. These are more of a matte silver and not as attractive. However, they work just fine. July 15, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by They do what they need to do! I had to replaced my posts I lost when I moved. I love intermetro. They are sturdy and do exactly what you need them to do. I've had two units for years. I love that I can just grab and go. I know exactly where things are. June 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love the size ranges of these. If you have a house with many different ceiling heights, you will appreciate these. Most other stores have two heights and that does not work for me in my house. The InterMetro shelves are versatile and easy to put together. June 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy! I recently purchased these posts along with a few of the shelves and they worked out great. They were very easy to setup, and they hold quite a bit of weight with no signs of stress or strain. I would definitely tell a friend about them if they are looking for flexible storage solutions. April 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the intermetro and metro system. The best part of these post is the ability to have them cut to size. Gonna come in handy while organizing a utility room. April 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by InterMetro is a Wonderfully Useful System This system is SO useful. Over the years I've used components as bookshelves, as an entertainment storage unit, a baker's rack. The possibilities are endless; which means the money spent is an investment -- and a safe one at that! March 24, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Post Extenders These Posts are best quality. I had bought another brand as well as having another InterMetro unit from Cntr. Stre.. Did not realize that I was trying to extend other brands posts (InterMetro posts can be extended easily. You have to buy extenders from InterMetro as currently Ctr. Stre. does not carry item. Extenders were not fitting tightly in other wire shelf unit, so use Locktite Professional (#8) glue to glue in post extenders and it workd (let dry for 24 hrs)! Buy Inter Metro - they are aexpandeble later as others are not! November 5, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by 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. September 16, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not worthy of five stars The one thing that really bothers me about the Intermetro posts is that the posts are not etched with marking numbers as a guide. When setting up an Intermetro shelving system, you should really use a tape measure so that each corner of the shelf is even otherwise you will end up with a lopsided shelf. How hard would it be for Intermetro to etch some numbers into each post? If you plan to place the posts on a delicate surface, I HIGHLY recommend purchasing a set of Intermetro protective feet. The metal feet alone can be damaging to a fragile surface. Oh, if you need the posts cut down to size for any reason, The Container Store will do so at no cost. It's a nice little thing they do. January 1, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. October 14, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Storage Solution I love these posts !!! Sturdy and just the right height. These guys will come in handy. July 24, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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

Community Q&A

Can Intermetro posts be cut to shorter lengths?

I want to set up a row of low shelves under the angled walls in my attic.
Asked by: IngaTipp
I think I read on the web site that the Container Store can custom cut these poles. I assume they would have to be cut on one of the one inch scribes around the poles. The top cap would have to be removed before cutting and replaced. They should not be cut at the bottom where there is a screw-in bolt that can be replace with a caster.

Do these come with leveling feet?

I have almost a 2 inch slant to the room and I need to level these. Are there options available to add leveling feet? Or do I have to shop elsewhere for them?
Asked by: Shara
The "foot" of these posts are like an adjustable screw, so you should be able to adjust them as you need. Not sure if they can go a full 2 inches.

Can 62" posts that I already own be cut in half?

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.
Asked by: HomeBird
These posts can be cut in 1" increments, along the grooves in the post.

Does the bottom of the post have a rubber or plastic floor protector?

And if not, what I can use to protect my hardwood floors? Will the "Commercial Floor protectors" work?
Asked by: yardbird
The posts don't automatically come with floor protectors, however, the Metro floor protectors are compatible. Please see our Product Recommendations below for additional details.

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.
Asked by: Steinway1905
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.

How heavy are the black 34 1/2" posts and what material are they made out of?

Hello. I need to find out how heavy each of the black 34 1/2" posts are and also, what type of metal they are made of? Thank you.
Asked by: deloppoled
Our InterMetro components are made of epoxy-coated steel, and each 34-1/2" post weighs 1.63 lbs.

Are InterMetro post extenders available?

Asked by: jeweldog
There are not post extenders available for this product as it would compromise the structural integrity of the shelving system.
Answered by: tcbeall
Date published: 2013-10-22

What's the max number of shelves that the structure can accommodate? The description reads 300lbs per shelf. Assuming a max weight limit forthe poles.

Asked by: Leakey22
We wouldn't recommend more than 4-6 shelves on a single unit.
