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..

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.

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. 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

However, depending where you put the bottom shelf, you have slots on each side of L-shaped post to bolt on a caster holder, BUT can you make that caster pin connect strong enough to hold the weight that the shelving could hold. I think you can get close to two tons onto this unit -- that requires pretty strong casters. If mobility is the most important to you, there are flimsier wire rack unit that come with casters.

Answer: 
You would have to do a lot to make this thing casterable, and casters would make it more vulnerable to tipping and falling and it would limit the amount of weight you could handle on the shelving. They're not designed to be pushed side to side, so you'd first have to install cross-bracing to the back and sides. I think I'd put braces between the halves of the uprights to keep them together, too. Then Read More

I think I'd put braces between the halves of the uprights to keep them together, too. Then you'd have to replace the bottom shelf with 3/4" plywood and drill holes in the 4 shelf brackets to attach the plywood to the brackets. Then you'd have to fix the bottom shelf supports to the uprights (bolt through top of keyhole and nut on the back--for all shelves.) Finally, you could install smallish casters, making sure they had room to swivel every direction. This will take the better part of a day, most likely. If you intend to load it down, I would not recommend going with casters. Read Less

Answer: 
You cannot fit the casters to the shelving unit. But if the casters were large enough, you could replace the bottom shelf with ¾" plywood and then fit the casters to the bottom shelf (plywood). You would just need to make sure the casters are tall enough to clear the bottom racks.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 122 reviewers.
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 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 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Better than first appeared 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! August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love the shelves This is 2nd shelving unit of the same kind, I will be ordering at least 2 more. August 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 1, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Weakened construction 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. August 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Product These shelves are sturdy and look good as well. No issues. July 19, 2016
