Is the particle board shelf only supported by the four sides or is there also support of shelf in the cavity of the shelf frame. Do not want the shelf to belly out and fall thru the broken particle board..

Answer: 
Particle board shelves are ¼" thick.. After a while you will need to replace sagging shelves with ¾" plywood. Home Deport can cut the plywood to size in store.

Yes, it is only supported on the 4 sides. It is pretty strong though. I think it is rated to hold 800 lbs. per shelf.

I have used this shelving with the particle board for over 7 years in an outside Tuff Shed to store boxes of client records (very heavy), lots of other very heavy items as well. Never had any warping or sagging. Very pleased with them. One did get wet because of a liquid spill and needs to be replaced.

Never had any warping or sagging. Very pleased with them. One did get wet because of a liquid spill and needs to be replaced. It was a bottom shelf so I just removed it and place the items on the shed floor which is not a problem at this time. The bottom shelf is only about 4 inches high off the floor anyway. You should always store your heaviest items on the bottom of these tall shelves for added stability. I had concerns with the wire or steel shelving that it would sag or rust and these particle board shelves are very easy to replace with MDF or plywood if you really want to be fussy. But I have really found this sturdy for the long haul. Read Less

Answer: 
Thank you for your inquiry. The particle board is probably not the best solution for an outdoor shed. The humidity and any possible moisture will warp the board. I would recommend our products with wire deck and or could replace the particle board and cut some solid wood boards.
I hope this helps you with you purchasing decision.Thanks

In order to gain more space between the shelves, I would like to put it together using only four shelves instead of five. Does that jeopardize the sturdiness or stability of the unit? Would the same maximum amount of weight per shelf still apply if only using four shelves? Thank you.

Answer: 
The unit is a base of 3 shelves and 2 added shelves to make 5. Unfortunately if you only add the 1 shelf it would make the side rails really unsupportive. It would require all shelves to have a solid structure.

Answer: 
I used all 5 shelves, but I do not see any reason that using 4 would compromise the stability or sturdiness of the shelving. The shelves help square up the unit. Three shelves would probably be pushing it though.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 128 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Shelves For its price point nice. 2 of the 4 purchased were missing parts. Manufacturer is sending parts. Instead of a full height bar it comes with 2 segment with iffy engineering -we decided to overlap and bolt. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So Pleased I am glad that I made this purchase. It was conveniently priced, easy to assemble, and very sturdy! October 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by edsal steel storage rack Although the price and quality were good. Impossible to assemble. I had to return it. October 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 0 stars Assembly easy, but wonky. It looked great when put together, but It's a lock and groove kind of shelving unit. Unfortunately they weren't locking into place in some areas or popping out of locked position at random causing It to be unbalanced and useless. I don't know if we received a defective product, but we weren't going to chance getting another. Returned and still looking for a better quality shelving unit that is sturdy and functional. September 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good product I recently purchased two larger versions of this product and am very happy with them. I purchased those at a Home Depot store. I wanted another smaller unit, so I ordered this one online. I think it's a good product, but it came without the stacking brackets. I don't blame whoever packed it, because they weren't on the parts list. I informed HD customer service of this, around two weeks ago, They were going to notify the manufacturer, haven't heard anything yet. I'm not unhappy with the product, just frustrated I can't finish putting it together. September 6, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by The Frame is Flimsy I purchased these to add to the "identical looking" product I purchased at Home Depot a few years back. This newer versions frame is much flimsier and less sturdy. A dissapointment. September 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Terrible design; cheaply made I bought these expecting them to be the same as some other ones I got from Home Depot a year ago, which I was very happy with. These are different. These are poorly designed, cheap junk. They are a thinner gauge metal, the angles aren't very square, the shelves are flimsy and the verticals don't have the clip to reinforce the butt joint between the top and bottom levels; supposedly, the shelf brackets should link those together. Not a good design. Since I live a couple hours from the nearest store and I had these delivered via UPS, they are too much of a hassle to return so I am stuck with them. July 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bad instructions, hard to put together The shelves are not easy to put together and stacking them seems really precarious. We were able to get them up and they serve the purpose I need and they were not too expensive but, do yourself a favor and look at the assembly videos of this product on youtube so you know what you're getting yourself into.
