Bror for the garageVerified ReviewerSorted my garage out a treat. Sturdy and well built5
Black version has terrible plywood topVerified ReviewerBlack version bought a week ago, sight unseen as none on display at Lakeside UK. Unpacked and saw terrible quality plywood top forced into metal. It looked cheap and was splintering where it was compressed into metal. We didn't assemble it, just returned 2 days later. I already have a white version with wood effect top which looks great and is very sturdy. I wouldn't recommend for a kitchen so try to view one before purchasing.1
Lovely trolley, nice fit in the utility roomVerified ReviewerLove this trolley. Easy to assemble. The trolley sides have ore drilled holes in, although we needed the shelf at a different height. Easy to add in more homes (if you know what you’re doing). Some of the edges in the wooden section would have been a little smoother.4
Strong & SturdyVerified ReviewerWell built strong and sturdy, wheels around nicely too5
Workshop trolleyVerified ReviewerBought to use in workshop, well built and easy to put together. Wooden top sturdy and easy to bolt pillar drill to. Lower shelf strong with no sagging, very pleased5
Just Wahey I was looking forVerified ReviewerThe Bror trolly / work station is perfect for the job! Easy to put together, easy to move around, perfect height for working on and it looks good.5
PerfectVerified ReviewerPerfect for using in the art studio. Keeps everything easily accessible and looks neat and tidy.5
Robust and practicalVerified ReviewerEasy to assemble and feels very solid. We bought three of these to use whilst re-configuring a kitchen and are very pleased with them. IKEA stores on mainland Europe also stock a metal cupboard to fit between the lower shelves of this trolley but the cupboard is unavailable in UK. It costs an extra Euro50 and in France the reference number is Référence de l'article : 003.986.08. IKEA UK please make this available to us, thank you.4
Does your garage sometimes feel like a lost civilization? Pyramids of paint cans grouped around the car, sports equipment you can’t remember even using and forgotten hobbies in boxes stacked high. IKEA product developer Lina Ringefelt wanted to help out. The outcome: the heavy-duty BROR storage system.
Lina and her team researched peoples’ garage needs and found that there’s an interest in everything from full-on hobby rooms, to a place to pot plants and work on cars, as well as storage for everything from heavy power tools to seasonal equipment. Many people also want lockable, closed and open storage that could hold very heavy loads.
Creating very strong storage
“I was inspired by classic industrial furniture typically used in workshops during the 50’s, as well as Meccano, to create the design,“ Lina says.
“The idea was to create these beautiful storage units that have double the weight carrying capacity of any other shelves we were making at the time.”
Engineer Philip Nedergaard made sure that the design held true to the heavy-duty ambition.
“We built some of what we call ‘worst-case scenarios’ by loading the shelves high with concrete bags to really test that the shelves could safely hold almost anything you would want to keep in a garage,“ he says.
Combining good looks and practicality
The result is an adjustable series of shelving units with closed and open storage, including a trolley that serves as a movable shelf and workstation.
But perhaps the series biggest calling card is its combination of looks and function. BROR could definitely be used in the home too.
What is steel?
Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
A real tough one
BROR storage system can withstand a lot. The widest and deepest shelves actually hold 130 kg and the smallest shelves can hold 70 kg. This means that you can store both tyres and heavy flower pots without problems. We know this since we tested the storage system by filling the shelves with concrete bags – all to ensure that they can safely hold almost anything you can imagine storing. Regardless if the surroundings are tropically moist or dry and freezing cold.
