I have been a fan of Gladiator products for quite some time, going far beyond their adjustable-height workbench I reviewed earlier in the year. Not everything has been perfect, but overall I feel the brand is committed to producing exceptionally good home storage solutions.
This product was actually on my radar for the past few weeks, as I have been seeking to furnish my offsite storage space with a heavy duty shelving rack or two. I have numerous wire shelving units already in place, and ended up ordering a few more of those instead. I thought this shelving unit would be a superb solution, but needed something that could break down smaller for easier transport when we move to a new location in a year or so.
This shelving rack unit looks to be incredibly robust, and my experience with Gladiator suggests that when they say it can hold 2,000 lbs per shelf, they mean it. $199 seems reasonable for what you get.
