durable and easy to assemblePATRICIAAlthough this is priced a little higher than big box store offerings, it is much easier to assemble and durable. The accessories are well planned and help make the unit even more useful and organized. The difference in price is well worth the time and aggravation saved.5

Sturdy and stylishBRANDYThese shelves were easy to assemble with 2 people- I wouldn't recommend it as a solo job. I have two of the deeper ones connected and they hold a TON of stuff. These were put in my kitchen to store small appliances and pantry goods (think bulk buying), our cases of drinks and our microwave. They're perfect and now I can see my dry goods (in huge ikea jars), my snacks and canned goods (and I can stop double buying them!)5

Great for a PantryJulia(Review for both shelf and frame) I got this to turn part of my closet into pantry space for my kitchen. It looks great and holds a TON of canned/dry goods. The only issue I had was that the stabilizing bar on the back was a little short to fit into the holes - after summoning some 'Hulk'-like strength, my husband and I got it to fit. Definitely would recommend.5
Could use side-bracing as wellKristinIt's a nice product, fits where we wanted, and holds the intended things, but the bracing only prevents movement side-to-side. It could benefit from additional cross-bracing that prevents front-to-back distortion as well.4

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.

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.
