Answer: 
The shelves are a light weight 3/8" particle wood. Having dealt with material like them before they will sag over time. The material for the shelves is the same material the junky Wal-Mart style book shelves are made from. They will not hold anywhere near what the manufacturer says they will. I bought this and the shelf wouldn't even hold my weight (308 lbs).

Answer: 
The inlays for the shelving unit are wood composite so if you have moisture issues like we do, I would suggest spraying them with some sort of coating to resist moisture. The shelves sit up off the floor so they would not come into direct contact unless there were flooding. The rest of the unit is metal.

(Note, even though this is admittedly unusual, you shouldn't do assemblies that are inherently unstable. For example, don't put all the shelves near the top leaving long, gangly "legs" for support.

The wooden shelves themselves no way, 3/8" light weight particle board with no cross braces. I weight 308 lbs and I couldn't even get my full weight onto a shelf before it started cracking. The metal braces and posts? Maybe, problem is anything you put in for a shelf that would hold 800 lbs would be stronger than the posts and braces themselves.

Answer: 
These are designed with the vertical supports being 2 x 36" = 72" tall. So you could make a "double-wide" installation. However, they are not supplied with hardware to bolt them together in this orientation. It would be easy to use other bolts, flat washers, lock washers, and nuts to secure them together. The narrow portion of the keyholes is 1/4", so 1/4-20 hardware should be fine.

Each unit is 36" high pieces and so, in the package you have 8 uprights at 36" tall. To get the full 72" height you have to attach one 36" to the top of another 36" upright with a special bracket they have included. Keep in mind, I had to pound it pretty significantly with a hammer to get the uprights into that bracket. Their instructions are a bit lacking on clarity.

Each unit is 36" high pieces and so, in the package you have 8 uprights at 36" tall. To get the full 72" height you have to attach one 36" to the top of another 36" upright with a special bracket they have included. Keep in mind, I had to pound it pretty significantly with a hammer to get the uprights into that bracket. Their instructions are a bit lacking on clarity.
Now for me, I actually put together a full 72" high rack and then on top of that, I added a 36" section to go higher. And to make sure it was secure, I screwed it to the wall. This worked out great, especially if the items your putting on them are not too heavy. If your going to fill the rack to its 800 pound per shelf capacity, then I would not advise doing the setup like I did.
One more thing to know about these units, the boards (in my opinion) are very susceptible to being damaged easy and I feel rather brittle. They should have put 3/4" particle boards on each shelf. I would gladly have paid more to have that done. If these break, I will be replacing them with 3/4" particle boards. Or, even better, use Plywood.
The picture is actually a 48w x 24d x 72h storage rack. I then bought a second package and used half of it to add to the top of this to utilize high up the wall in the garage. Now I just need a 36w shelf to go next to it. Read Less

The instructions do show the shelving in a configuration of a three shelf unit with a table. I don't see how it would be that hard to add another unit to the other side. For five shelves and a table in the center would probably be three kits. The three shelf units attach to one another by a metal piece that goes into the top of one unit and the rails attach to the bottom of the next unit.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 205 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Light-medium duty shelving, assemble with 2 people I picked up a couple of these to help organize my storage room and my workshop. They certainly are not "Heavy Duty" shelves, as the steel is far to flexible for them to be considered such. They do work very well for storage bins, tools, hardware and camping gear, as I'm using them. Assembly is a bit tricky due to the flexibility of the pieces and the sharper than 90 degree angle on the corners. Early in assembly, it's really difficult to keep the unit straight and it twists all over the place, sometimes popping out joints already hammered into place as you hammer others. A second set of hands to hold it straight really helps a lot for the first part of the assembly, and then it starts to straighten out and gets much easier as a few shelves are inserted. The weird angle actually seems to make the joints tighter and more solid once the whole unit is assembled, so I'd imagine that this is a design feature rather than flaw. When it's fully assembled, the unit feels fairly sturdy and doesn't wobble on a flat floor, but having felt how easily the metal bends, I don't think I'd trust the unit with anywhere near the 4000 lbs claimed. I feel uncomfortable loading upper shelves with any heavy objects, as I can imagine that loading or unloading them might put side strain on the unit, and that seems to be where it's weakest. The lower shelves do feel sturdy enough to support some fairly heavy objects. For a sub-100 dollar shelving unit this size ($98.97 when I purchased), I expect some quality deficiencies, but all-in-all these look quite nice for the purpose and do the trick quite nicely for helping me organize some chaotic storage. July 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy and assembles in a few minutes I recently bought two of these shelving units for my brother-in-law's new house. These were actually the second set I'd bought, the first ones about 10 years. I'd forgotten how easily they go together. Just need a hammer to tap the braces in place. No more of those hundreds of nuts and bolts that take hours to assemble. Less than 10 minutes per unit was all it took. What is also surprising is how sturdy these are even as you just get the first shelf section assembled. Accurately machined parts that go together well and hold the shelves rigidly in place. The finished units are strong enough to stand on, too. Can't think of anything I didn't like about them. I would buy these again if I need more shelving. August 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very sturdy case I purchase this to used as a book shelf it looks good very sturdy.. August 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mega Sturdy I bought this shelving unit for me garage. It is loaded to the hilt right now and holding strong! I really like the solid shelves vs other types with wire mesh shelves where things fall through the wire. This unit holds small items as well as large with no issues. I would not suggest trying to assemble it by yourself, but I did and it can be done. Pay very close attention to the slots in the rials. They do have to be facing the right way or you will end up taking half of it apart to turn them the right way (Ah, life's lessons) I would definitely recommend this product. August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by What came and what didn't! Good overall shelf, but an extra set of hands could help to hold together while you hammer in the corners using a block. Had to call twice to get replacement shelves that were damaged. Leave a message and they will call you back. There should be more of those plastic finishing pieces, especially if you are doing a horizontal install. July 26, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this shelving unit! This was my second purchase of the same product. This is so easy to put together, has braces to firmly connect the upper shelves, and the price was very reasonable. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product This is some of the best shelving that I have found. They are strong, easy to put together and I can store a good amount of things on them. The shelves are easy to relocate. Just take a rubber hammer and tap upwards on the rivets and you can move them anywhere you want. No wrenches or pliers needed. I liked them so much, that I bought three of them and plan on buying another. A excellent purchase. I found them way in the back of the store. Glad I didn't jump on the first item I saw and took the time to look around. July 12, 2016
