Plastic greenhouseVerified ReviewerPut in a very protected area and screwed to wall, used all spring and surprising how much you can get in it5
Very happy with this shelvingVerified ReviewerVery happy with this shelving unit. It's a sturdy, basic unit for my garden. Good value for money . I am thinking of getting one or two more.5
DefectedVerified ReviewerUnfortunately the holes in one of the shelving units are too small.
I will now need to do a 50 mile round trip to change it.2
BrilliantVerified ReviewerBought to use as mini greenhouse. Fits the bill perfectly5
Zip has already brokenVerified ReviewerZip has already broken so disappointed I know it's cheap but I expected it to last a least more than opening it twice.1
Needed electric screwdriver and helpVerified ReviewerNeeded electric screwdriver and help but does the job well.4
Just the right sizeVerified ReviewerGreat but cover strap to legs is above lower shelf cover needs to be longer or straps4
Good valueVerified ReviewerI bought these to cover the Hyllis outdoor shelving and they are pretty sturdy. Good zip closure and for the money I think they are good value. Snug fit so should keep out the wind and rain.5

Bought these for my greenhouse.Verified ReviewerBought these for my greenhouse. They are perfect!5
Perfect timingVerified ReviewerBought this to germinate our vegetable seeds in the garden, didn’t want to keep so many little pots indoors. Seems to keep warm and dry inside, hopefully it will work. It was simple to set up.5
Hyllis metal shelving unit with coverVerified ReviewerThese are sturdy and strong, so useful.
They look smart , I have plants across the tops , I have five of these now, love the size and depth perfect5
Verified ReviewerGreat product for what we need, not bulky4
Sturdy shelvesVerified ReviewerEasy to put together and doing a good job outside in the British weather5
very useful unitVerified Reviewergreat mini green house for seedlings etc4
Super shelvingVerified ReviewerBought this as greenhouse staging and it’s perfect for a fraction of the price the horticultural suppliers would charge. Have ended up using the cover for garden chairs instead (so as not to waste them) because this bit, while a great idea, didn’t work well. It was just too tight to be easy to use and the fact that it is held in place by the top shelf, reduces the usefulness of the whole init down from 3 shelves to just 2 when the cover is on. Still excellent value for my purpose though.4
Great shoe storage but hard to assembleVerified ReviewerThe holes were in the wrong position and it took over an hour to assemble. Poorly made but good product.3
Excellent productVerified ReviewerI bought two of these items ready for the spring to start seeds for the garden However we assembled them and stored food and drink on them in the cold garage over the Christmas break ,giving us more room in the kitchen the zip up covers gave total protection .It is an excellent product for the money ,however you need two pairs of hands to assemble just to steady the frame whilst fixing the shelves5
HYLLIS creates room for life on the balcony
Some of us live smaller than we’d like. It often means a constant hunt for more space. So why not try and use the space we have in smarter ways? This was something our product developers wanted to help out with when they created a small version of HYLLIS – a shelf that fits almost anywhere – and can be used if you want to grow your own herbs and small plants.
Philip Dilé, one of the members in the development team behind HYLLIS, live in an apartment with balcony in southern Sweden.
“My balcony is filled with stuff. I’d like to use it for something other than storage, and I think many of our customers feel the same way.”
Cover from the elements
To shield our balconies from weather, wind and exhaust fumes, it usually isn’t enough with the protection from the neighbour above. That’s why the team decided to create a cover for HYLLIS. They made it transparent and added ventilation holes. It makes it possible to use the cover and the shelf as a greenhouse.
Become a balcony farmer
“I grow herbs myself. It saves money and it’s fun to see life sprout on your own balcony. I think people who live in cities should be able to grow small plants and herbs too, even if they don’t have access to a garden,” says Philip.
With HYLLIS shelf and cover they can do it in a small scale and use the balcony for more things than storing – a greener life and a smarter use of space at home.
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.
