To assess the strength of our shelving components, Rare Timber Shelving carried out extreme load tests to determine the safe effective carrying capacity of the shelves.

This test shows a centrally loaded shelf, 900mm wide and 1350mm deep, carrying:

  • An I beam weighing 200kg
  • A bin of water in excess of 1000kg
  • A bin with 200litres of water

The total central load weighing more than 1400kg.

The results concluded a completely safe load with a slight deflection of less than 6mm in the center. To determine the maximum load permissible per shelf, Rare Timber Shelving have subsequently produced a safe loading graph for you, using individual shelf depths.
