Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Flimsy If you're looking for heavy-duty racking, this isn't it. It's nowhere near as strong or as heavy-duty as I thought it was going to be and I'm disappointed. It's pretty Mickey Mouse, especially for the money. I would rate it less stars, but the website does plainly state the thickness of the metal. I guess I don't know much about metal thicknesses.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Another great product The rack of this style is really great, a little pricey but very sturdy and is built to last and strong with great weight rating. You can actually hook one shelf to the other and that makes it even more sturdy. I put mine together by my self and it may have taken me 30 min. Don't buy the others because there cheaper this will last you a lifetime. January 27, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product with the addition of tie bars When the bottom shelf was loaded with 1126 lbs, they had to be blocked up to keep them from sagging to the floor. The second shelf is loaded with 844 lbs. and is showing some stress. February 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent For The Price Great Shelves, Industrial Strength, Easy Assembly, Saves Space! November 20, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Strong enough, but not strong as... I bought several of these beams and an end section to add on my existing Muscle Rack purchased a few years prior. All the parts look similar and are compatible, but these beams are not made of the exact gauge material or have as superior a finish. The beams are still plenty strong enough once assembled, but again beware they are not the exact same as Muscle Rack. I'm not sure if the quality changed overall, or these add-on parts are a lower grade. There is always a chance of fighting with the beams tabs sliding into the end section slots, as many reviews mention. Having a rubber mallet and HVAC hand seamer helps a lot. October 21, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for small warehouse production My production floor is full of these racks. It is great for picking items to assemble. April 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garage and basement Placed these storage racks in my garage and basement. Huge improvement. Quality is top notch! March 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What can I say about a heavy duty steel beam? Well...... Heavy duty steel beam. When I first purchased the individual parts for the unit (apparently, only on line now), I only needed five cross beams. Now, in a new home, I needed a sixth. Had to special order, but process was quick and easy. August 14, 2013
