Good enoughlisaGood enough for the price, but turned out that one of the shelves was not hammered together properly. Make sure you check all shelves before taking home.4

Easily increase shelving space...IKEA fannnpurchased a few sets (comes in sets of two) of these to increase the number of available shelving space.5
Simple, Excellent, Greatrwalker77Highly recommend this product, simple, easy to set up and excellent in garage, shed or kitchen storage...or to store LEGO and toys5
Excellent valueTrix3Easy to put together. A few blemishes needed a quick sand down but generally the quality was excellent. The ability to space the shelves to suit my purpose was an advantage.5
Great priced shelvingFrankies53I have just purchased my second lot of Hejne shelving for my garage. It is a very economical way to add storage and I had no difficulty assembling it myself. The shelves are nice and wide and very strong and very easy to add as many shelves as you like. I would strongly recommend this shelving system. It looks good too.5
Lee716In all the years we have bought Ikea products this is the first time we are unhappy with a product. We bought the set to complete the shelf system and although it went together easily both shelf systems have the appearance of leaning sideways quite a lot.1
So easy to build and looks great.gruntI needed new shelving in my garage. Hejne was perfect. 2 shelf system, Light but strong and stable. I oil finished the timber for even better looks, and it's practicle in that I can add shelves for further versitility for smaller things.5
Transform unused bathtub into instant storage!Tez73I was complaining to a friend that with a only a tiny vanity I was lacking in sufficient bathroom storage. She suggested I copy her idea and buy 3 Hejne shelving panels and lay them over the top of my rarely used bathtub. I measured up and 3 fit the space almost perfectly. I now have so much storage above and below that I no longer even need to use the drawers in my vanity. On top I keep a basket of rolled bath towels and baskets of frequently used toiletries (eg. tissues, my make up and my sons shaving gear). Then below I’ve got 3 storage tubs full of rarely used items and bathroom products that I buy in bulk when on special. Because the bath is covered in 3 panels instead of 1 big one it makes the items underneath very accessible and the gaps between each slat means there’s lots of airflow. I gave the shelving a light wipe down with some wood oil but it didn’t make too much difference to the look. I’ll probably get around to staining them properly one day. My friends sister painted her set white. In fact her whole family has used this hack it’s so genius. Maybe one day Ikea will catch on and actually make mould and mildew resistant covers with rubber seals specifically for bath tubs just as they do for kitchen sinks. White or bamboo would look lovely and cedar would smell fragrant like a sauna. But for now this Ikea hack is doing the job beautifully and has received lots of compliments.4
Good productFred OGood value for money compared to other products available.4
LDD29easy to assembly, very versatile, have purchased before. Would like one with 4 wooden slat width as only available in 3 or 54
Our take on wood
Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage.
At IKEA we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
The key is to use more parts of each tree and to cut transportation costs by producing where the tree is sourced.
Sourced from sustainable forests
"The first part is harvesting the timber from responsibly managed forests, and then it’s on to the sawmill," says Jesper Gunnerling who helped source the wood.
The outer sections of the log are what we use to make HEJNE. The price for these parts is lower, without losing the benefits of solid wood.
"There's no difference at all in strength," Jesper says. "But furniture makers don't always use this type of wood because it has these natural markings in the timber where branches have come out from the trunk."
Strong and straightforward storage
Solid timber is so strong that each HEJNE unit can be used to store heavy loads, like a garage worth of tools.
There's no paint or extra fittings, just practical and strong solid wood shelves to make sturdy, unpretentious storage, ready for years of service around the home. That’s likeable, don’t you think?
Forests are critical for life on earth
Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon.
Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.
100% wood from more sustainable sources
At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict.
Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions.
By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030
As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come.
The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas:
• Making responsible forest management the norm across the world.
• Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes.
• Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.
We accomplish more by working together
For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond.
We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.
What is solid wood?
Solid wood is one of our favourite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful, renewable and recyclable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood. This way, every tree is put to good use that little extra.
