So tell me about garage shelving…
big dug stuff is inexpensive, although Id recommend adding a few extra bolts between units and maybe screwed to the wall for extra stiffness.Posted 4 years ago
Aiming to replace the existing shelving with something deeper.Posted 4 years ago
I don’t collect paint – it’s just hard to throw it away…molgripsSubscriber
I used to have the Ikea garage stuff, but I realised if I put one high shelf along the length of the garage I could get almost all the same stuff on it as I had on the four or so units of Ikea, but all at head height leaving me way more floor space.
The shelf had to be pretty well engineered DIY though, I’ll post a pic tomorrow if you like.Posted 4 years agocranberryMember
This http://www.machinemart.co.uk/shop/product/details/csr5350bp-350kg-boltless-shelving-blue is the shelving I have – I can’t fault it.Posted 4 years agosamuriMember
This looks like great value.
I think that’s what I’ll be going for.Posted 4 years agoLegomanMember
I bought a load of those bigdug shelf kits for my garage.
They do the job but I found all the MDF shelves they give you have warped and, more annoyingly, developed a thick growth of mould which covers everything on the shelf below.
My garage isn’t particularly damp & I’ve got plenty of other MDF stuff out there which has never gone mouldy.
I’ve had to empty them all to remove & paint all the shelves. Which was a job I could have lived without.Posted 4 years agoMadflyMember
Dexion speedlock racking is superb. Went through a couple of other cheaper ones before i bought a load for peanuts on ebay (took a while to find i’ll admit!)
I have the 500mm deep sections, they do hold a decent weight. I have truthfully around 200kg on each shelf without being unstable or overly flexy, they don’t need bolting to the wall either.Posted 4 years agoShibbolethMember
I say “BIG”, you say “DOUG”… “BIG!”…
Cheap, strong, orange and “Park Blue”. Winner winner chicken dinner.
I like the way the guy in the French cleat video turns the words “45 degree bevel” into one word with just one slightly lumpy syllable… Like what Elvis used to do with “Thank you very much”.Posted 4 years ago
More french cleat – including colour-coordinated tools 🙂

The best place in the UK I ever found for plastic boxes was:
Nice to do business with and they get some great boxes that are a good bit more industrial than anything you’ll find in your local DIY store. I’ve hauled stuff all over the world in boxes from Solent and no, I have no connection with the business other than a happy punter!Posted 4 years ago
If they don’t have what you need, you are being too niche for your plastic box desires.
