Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AH 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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eclectic Overall good, but....
Qualified "yes" on the recommend. The shelves are generally sturdy, but I was unhappy to find that Edsal has downgraded the connections for the 36" outer frame sections. On earlier models, we had fitted steel sleeves or bolts and grommets. Now Edsal expects you to secure the upper and lower frame portions with a grommeted shelf. Does not inspire confidence in the sturdiness of the frame overall, especially since the unit torques a bit when you pick it up and move it into place, and the grommets tend to pop out, even after they've been hammered in with a mallet. We sacrificed a bit of height in order to bolt the four corners together with (separately purchased) two-hole frame overlaps and four bolts in each corner. I definitely would not put 500 lbs on the shelf that "holds together" the upper and lower sections if you build it the way Edsal intends you to.

Assembly at first was tricky trying to keep 4 leg uprights steady as you try to secure the cross members. Then trying to attached the top half to the bottom half definitely a 2 person job. Before inserting the wooden shelving pieces I was leery of the units stability. But once I got the unit into its permanent position and the wooden shelves in and our stuff on the selves the unit was very sound and secure. Happy with the final outcome and will need 2 more units for more stuff!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kber A Commercial Shelving Unit this is NOT!
Just when you thought you could not buy another disappointing product you end up buying another disappointing product! The side rails are not one long piece as they should be, it is two pieces so you would think there should be some kind if brace to hold the two of them together since the side rails should be strong to hold the unit together and give it a sturdy base but there are not any braces to hold the two pieces together, silly design. When they say you may need a rubber mallet to set the rivets, you actually need two and 4 hands when you tap one side down the other sides pops out. A commercial shelving unit this is not! Would not recommend, spend a little more money and get a better product!

The shelves are now only particle board instead of being sheathed . The upper half and lower half angle pieces used to be connected using a metal bracket and now they are not, relying only on the shelf rivets. I hope they will not collapse once I place items on them.
