Design Your Boltless Storage Rack
SIM WIN LIANG Boltless Storage Rack is highly modular and customizable - embracing a "LEGO-like" design so that anyone can design their own reliable storage system to fit his or her space constraint. With many customization components to choose from, designing your own rack setup can be overwhelming at first.
In this guide, we will introduce the 3 basic building blocks that form the foundations of our Boltless Storage System. However, before that, let us inform you of a few safety considerations.
Rule #1 First Shelf Level to be no higher than 70cm - Having undergone rigorous safety tests, the test results recommend that the first (bottom) shelf level to be no higher 70cm for all stated technical specifications to hold true.
Rule #2 (Especially if you break Rule #1) Heavy items on the First Shelf Level - As the saying goes "rules are made to be broken". But regardless if you are going to break Rule #1 or not, always put heavy items on the first or lower shelf levels. This lowers the center of gravity of the Storage Rack, making it safer and more stable.
Rule #3 Seamless L-Shape (a.k.a no center pole) = Reduced Load Capacity per Shelf Level - Our Boltless Storage Racks can withstand 150KG per Shelf Level. However, when you combine two (2) Racks together to form a Seamless L-Shape, you essentially removed one (1) side of the Rack Frame and bridge the Shelf Levels together using L-Shape Attachments. The lack of that Rack Frame or "center pole" results in a reduced Load Capacity per Shelf Level, down to 100KG.
The 3 Basic Rack Setups
Single Rack Unit
A single rack unit is the most fundamental and common rack setup in our arsenal, which you can purchase through our STORAGE RACK page. It comes in 3 standard lengths, 4 standard depths and 1 standard height. However if you are looking for a higher rack setup or insists on building a single rack unit from scratch, here are the components you need:
- 2 sides of BOLTLESS RACK FRAME
- Number of sets of BOLTLESS SHELF LEVEL you desire (We recommend at least 4 shelf levels)
Need a longer rack to maximize the length of your space? While our longest standard length is 159 cm, you are able to extend our rack by connecting it with rack extensions. To do so, you need:
- 1 unit of BOLTESS STORAGE RACK
- Number of extension(s) of BOLTLESS RACK EXTENSION - 4 SHELF LEVELS
- (Optional) Additional sets of BOLTLESS SHELF LEVEL
Seamless L-Shape Rack
We strongly advise and will only recommend Seamless L-Shape Rack to be of SILVER version - not BLACK, WHITE or BLUE. This is due to the thickness of powder-coating preventing the L-Shape Attachments from securing onto the Shelf Beams properly.
When building your own Seamless L-Shape Rack, always take note of Rule #3. Other than that, creating a Seamless L-Shape Rack is simple - basically attaching a rack extension to a single rack unit with some L-Shape Attachments! Here are the components:
