Single bays. (easiest to build laying on flat ground)

  1. Place the back sheets inside the uprights and attach with 4 bolts.
    (all bolts point inwards)
  2. Bolt the top shelf in the very top holes of the uprights.
    One bolt in each corner.
  3. Next fit the Bottom Shelf. The bottom shelf is positioned in the third hole up from the bottom. The bottom shelves are bolted in the back holes only. Clips are placed in the front, and the shelf rests on the two clips at the front. (This allows the bottom shelf to be tightened)
  4. Tighten all bolts securely.
  5. Stand the shelving bay up and move into position.
  6. Slide the bottom shelf down onto the clips at the front.
  7. Next fit intermediate shelves, by placing clips into the four corners where shelves are required.

 

Multiple Bays in a line. (easiest to build lying down)

  1. Insert the first back sheet inside the first upright and bolt together.
  2. Now a joining strip and the second upright need to be bolted to the first back sheet. Place joining strip onto back sheet, so that it extends the width of the back sheet. Place an upright facing inward, on top of joining strip and back sheet. Place bolts through all three components and fasten.
  3. Now attach a second back sheet to joining strip.
  4. Continue extending the shelving by placing a joining strip and upright ontop of back sheets as done in step 2.
  5. To finish a run of shelving, simply place an upright facing inwards behind the last back sheet and fasten (so the folded edge of the upright stops the back sheet from bowing out).
  6. Top Shelves are now bolted in the very top holes of the uprights. A bolt is placed through the top shelf on one side, through the upright, and through the adjoining top shelf, where it is fastened.
  7. Now fit the Bottom Shelves. The bottom shelves are positioned in the third hole up from the bottom. The bottom shelves are bolted in the back holes only. Clips are placed in the front, and the shelf rests on the two clips at the front. (This allows the bottom shelf to be tightened)
  8. Tighten all nuts and bolts securely.
  9. Stand the run of shelving up and push into position.
  10. Slide the bottom shelf down onto the clips at the front.
  11. Next fit intermediate shelves, by placing clips into the four corners where shelves are required.

 

Back to Back Bays. (Easiest to build standing up)

  1. Slide the first Back sheet between two uprights and bolt together.
  2. Place the free end of the first back sheet, and a joining strip between two in- facing uprights. One bolt is placed through the two uprights, the back sheet and the joining strip.
  3. Bolt a second back sheet onto the joining strip
  4. Continue extending the shelving by bolting a joining strip and two inward facing upright’s onto back sheets.
  5. To finish a run of back to back shelving, simply place two uprights facing inwards on either side of the last back sheet and fasten.
  6. Top Shelves are now bolted in the very top holes of the uprights. A bolt is placed through the top shelf on one side, through the upright, and through the adjoining top shelf, where it is fastened.
  7. Now fit the Bottom Shelves. The bottom shelves are positioned in the third hole up from the bottom. The bottom shelves are bolted in the back holes only. Clips are placed in the front, and the shelf rests on the two clips at the front. (This allows the bottom shelf to be tightened)
  8. Tighten all nuts and bolts securely and push into position.
  9. Slide the bottom shelf down onto the clips at the front.
  10. Next fit intermediate shelves, by placing clips into the four corners where shelves are required.

 

Open Shelving Bays. (Easiest to build horizontal)

Open Shelving is installed much the same as Shelving with backs and sides. Top shelves are bolted in the very top hole. Bottom shelves are bolted in the third hole from the bottom.

Where bays are set up in runs, or lines, a common angle is used between the shelving bays. i.e. Where there are two bays side by side, only 6 angles are needed, not 8.

Side and Back bracing is only installed on every second bay.

For back to back units, shelving is built in single runs and then pushed next to
each other (back to back), using common back bracing.

 

Steps:

  1. First Bolt all top shelves into position
  2. Bolt bottom shelves in the third hole from the bottom, all four corners are bolted.
  3. Fix side bracing on every second pair of uprights, as bottom shelves are bolted in, to prevent the shelving collapsing while being built.
  4. Fix Back Bracing on every second bay.
  5. Tighten top and bottom shelves. Ensure that the units are square and plumb, then tighten Back and side bracing,
  6. Clip or bolt intermediate shelves into place where they are needed.
