Written on: 06/02/2010 by berrywoods (1 review written)

Being a small business and on the verge of opening i decided we needed some racking to use for keeping stock in our back area, having spent a day looking at what was avalible i decided on using monsterracking.co.uk, they sell racking in both a blue and a grey colour, their website explains how their racking is easy to put together and requires no bolts, which i thought would be perfect for us.



I recieved a call the same day to tell me they had sold out of the blue racking and that id have to wait till the end of feb before it was back in stock (almost 25 days which would not have done) so instead they changed it over to grey shelving.



Having today finished putting this shelving together i would avoid it again in the future, although it did come very quickly (next day delivery) although the concept on boltless sounds like a good thing, i can assure you it is not.



I lost track of the times we had managed to build the first 2 levels only for a slip and a little upwards pressure to send the whole lot crashing to the floor, it took us 3 hours to build 5 units which is resonable but i do believe that unless there is constantly heavy things on these shelves, it would only take someone to accidently knock one of the shelves upwards and ud been looking at rebuilding that unit again.



Good Points:

It did go up fairly quickly i guess, and does look the part with MDF panels.



Bad Points:

Is not very stable unless fully loaded with lots of heavy things.



Putting it together was not entirely fun having it colapase again and again.



Joining the bottom section to the top is not fun as it seems every corner must slip in together which would require 4 people..



Conslusion: If you want real hardcore racking, try and source out some second hand bolt type, it'll be much stronger and a hell of a lot cheaper.



Dont be fooled into thinking you need the mallet that is advertised as being a needed tool on their website, having bought one i failed to need it once.

I am a 76 year old man and managed to assemble 3 90cm wide racks in less than 2 hours - single handed. This is an excellent product and outstanding value
