Custom Steel Shelf Unit
Anne was looking for an under stairs shelving and storage unit which would accommodate her electric keyboard.
The unit would be located directly underneath the pitch of her stairs, meaning she would need a customised solution to fit in neatly and take advantage of limited space. An outward opening door would also pose a bit of an obstacle on one side and space was very definitely at a premium.
Tough And Durable
Installing a steel shelving unit would provide a tough and durable solution, while the flexible nature of the fittings meant that the frame could be easily customised and adapted to suit the area.
Fixing The Unit
As the unit was tall and pretty narrow, it would need to be fixed securely into the wall to ensure that it wouldn’t topple over. Although our Swivel Flange could be used to fix against the underside of the stairs, this wouldn’t have been an ideal solution.
Secure Connection To Block
Luckily the wall behind the shelves was solid block and so provided a secure connection point using our 61-6 Flange. This fittings contains 4 screw holes for standard countersunk screws.
Connecting The Shelf
To hold her timber shelves in place, Anne used our 70-6 Rail Supports on the tubing. These have a flat plate on their surface with 2 screw holes to allowing fixing into the timber. As can be seen, these project the shelves off the tube struts. Although this worked out fine in this situation, it can use up vital space in situations where every inch counts.
Single Panel Holder
We have since introduced the 199-6 Single Panel Holder to our Kee Klamp fittings range which allows the shelf to sit flush on top of the steel. They also provide a more subtle, hidden method of connecting the shelf.
Suitable For Retail Applications
The chunky industrial look of tube clamp fittings combined with heavy duty steel tube provide a look that is pretty unique. This look is quite popular within both the home and retail shops, as it is quite eye-catching. Kee Klamp shelving and furniture projects work well within many different surroundings and ensure a rugged, industrial appearance.
