Great qualityMelissaBought these for my husband's office. Couldn't believe the quality for the price. He loves them--says they are "bloke-y." I think these would also work great in a kitchen or garage.5
WobblyErny G.The shelves wobble a lot. I'm not really sure why? At first, I thought it was me but after double checking the manual it just seems to be the shelves.1
Quality productDwightThese shelves are sturdy, all steel, easy to assemble and look nice after assembly. I would recommend them, although they do not appear to actually be an IKEA product.5
Good qualityERICAThis is in our garage and it's good quality I am surprised.5
Easy to assemble.BERTINAEasy to assemble.5
perfect garage storagechristineeasier to set up than wire bakers racks... look better, too:) like how deep the larger ones are so you can fit 2 of the clear IKEA tubs on each shelf.5
Shelf SystemEsmeraldaOverall aesthetically it looks really pleasing however the quality feels flimsy even with X bracket in the back . We had to add additional screws directly into the studs to avoid any possible tip overs and to give more security. I would say since the recent cost increase, I am not sure that it is worth the ticket price, but I could not find another item on market that fit the look I was going for in my kitchen.3
Sturdy, easy to assembleDeniseI have purchased five Bror shelving systems. I find them to be extremely sturdy, easy to assemble, versatile, and priced economically when compared to other products. I highly recommend and will likely be purchasing more to finish outfitting my backyard shed.5
Very goodNADIAVery good5
Not GreatHEIDIThe shelf is not sturdy. Difficult to put together. Materials were flimsy and bent easily.1
Does not assemble correctlyJorgeShelves do not assemble correctly and instead bend very easily when inserting.1
EXTREMELY difficult to assembleTom C.This product is poorly designed, particularly in the method of assembly. There’s very little hardware included; instead it relies on the components themselves fitting tightly together. Because the tolerances are tiny, any variation in manufacturing causes misalignment between the adjoining parts, requiring extra force to assemble. Because the metal is so thin, the additional force deforms the parts - almost to the point of breaking (and beyond, depending on how hard you try to compensate for the misalignment by banging on it harder). The result is an assembly that is not stable (or doesn’t remain assembled at all). I bought two sets of shelves and was able to assemble the first one relatively easily. The second set, which should have been easier as I had successfully gone through the process already, simply cannot be assembled with the parts I received. Trust me when I tell you that the video showing the parts fitting easily and perfectly together is movie magic.2
Great and solid itemJulianIt's great, just what i was looking for my garage.5
where are white metal shelves?AnonymousI ordered this system in white which is 25 inches wide. However, Ikea does not make or sell the shelves in white to go along with it. If you want shelves for this unit, you have to either buy black metal or black with plywood. Who would put up white posts with black shelves? Avoid this width in white.1
BrorROSAI really liked how it looks in my garage, the size and appearance, exceeded my expectation, it was very easy to assemble it, the instructions are very easy to understand.5
ShelfNORMAA decent alternative to the Fjalkinge units that won't be available any time soon, for display of my doll collection. I need adjustable shelving, with a depth that is more than a typical bookshelf unit. They are also a good height for my purpose.5
Easy assembly and very sturdySUE A.Easy assembly and very sturdy5

Great Display SolutionAlexI love this. It's very large which makes it great to display my large LEGO sets. It matches nicely with my Fjallbo pieces too. great buy.5

The strongest storage we’ve made so far

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 285 lbs. and the smallest shelves can hold 154 lbs. This means that you can store both tires 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.
