Rated 5 out of 5Â by DaveTx Good price. Sturdy. Easy to build
I picked up two of these. I had to organize a shed with a ton of small and medium items.
The installation was simple. One tool. The rubber hammer.
I stopped after the first one to load it up then built the second one. Then loaded that one.
Two hours tops for all the loading and the building of the racks.
I hear people complaining about the wire mesh shelves. I bought pre-cut wooden shelves right at the Depot. when I bought the units.
They sit right on the wire shelf and are inside the lip of the shelf.
Yes that add's to the cost, but without the wooden shelves I'd have hated the wire because of the holes.
Now I have the wire shelf as extra support below the wood. Perfect marriage between the two.
They are solid and sturdy. Mine will be there for a long time to come.

Simple installation with a rubber mallet. Took me and my son about 30 minutes to put it together. The heavy gauge wire shelves are well designed for carrying a lot of weight and sag very little when under load. The only downside is the spacing of the wire itself, (it's made of 4" x 2" rectangles). The spacing is so large that narrow items like a can of spray paint can't stand upright. Home Depot also sells 48" x 24" pre-cut plywood panels. I bought one sheet of the quarter inch plywood (Lauan Handypanel) for about 7 bucks and it dropped right onto my third shelf for my tall narrow items. It was a prefect fit, no trimming needed. See photo.

I didn't want to cheap out on storage shelves for our basement, so we went with the Husky shelves. These shelves feel tough enough to last a long long time, so I'm glad we opted for these. I love that you can adjust the shelves. We use big Rubbermaid tubs for storage right now, so I was able to set each shelf height to accommodate them.
The only downer is that some of the wire shelves seem to be cut a tiny bit off or bent way too much. I can see why you'd want some kind of initial bend in it so you can place it on the frame bowing upwards in anticipation of placing heavy items on it, but some of them took a few pounds of the hammer to get into place. Speaking of which, make sure you have a rubber mallet or a block of wood to protect the shelves as you hammer them into place.
So while the fit is kinda wonky for some shelves, I'd still buy these again if we ever need more storage. The cheaper ones would probably work for our needs, but I can't predict what the future holds, and I'd rather have something sturdy that will transition to our next home, rather than buy something to last us a few years just to trash it when we move.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AussieLady SO SIMPLE TO ASSEMBLE EVEN A GIRL CAN DO IT!
I know that sounds like a "sexist" review title, but that is the thought that sprang to my mind when I assembled this shelving unit. I say that only because this shelf unit is heavy duty with nothing flimsy about it, and I was a bit worried that because it was so heavy, I might not be able to manage the assembly without help. Which was happily not the case!
The item was well-packed with a clear set of assembly instructions, although in reality it would not be difficult to assemble without instructions if necessary. There are braces and beams that form the perimeter of each wire shelf and you can install them upwards so the shelf rests on the beam, allowing items to slide directly onto the shelf, or you can install them downwards so the shelf sits inside the beam which provides a "lip" to prevent items from sliding off the shelf. I installed mine with the "lip" so that I can place cans of paint and so forth on the shelf and they won't accidentally slide off in any direction. The shelves are open wire shelves, but super sturdy. Imagine the racks in an oven and then double the gauge.
All the components of this storage unit are heavy duty, just as the name implies. And there is so much shelf area in the five shelves that I can throw out two of my cheaper, weaker, shelving units and still have some extra room left over.
All in all, this unit is less expensive than it could be, and I may consider getting another one at some time in the future, after I rearrange my garage.
