There's a lot to like about Gorilla Racks. They're famously strong with a shipping weight per this unit size of 115 pounds and a 1,500 pound capacity per shelf (and 7,500 pound total capacity). There are no little parts. The rivets make it as simple as putting steel shelf frames on the legs and then putting heavy particle board shelves on the steel shelf frames. Everything fits in place.
If there's any weakness to Gorilla Racks, it's that the shelves are constructed of particle board. If particle board becomes wet, it self-deconstructs. But I don't forsee my shelves getting wet and my previous Racks never got wet. If there's any reason for your shelves to get wet, this isn't the shelving unit for you.
Note that now some new and quite cheap shelving units bearing the name Gorilla Rack have been introduced. You can tell those are not the same by looking at their shipping weight (usually around 30 pounds) and their load capacity. These newer units have compromised the Gorilla Rack name.
This Gorilla Rack can hold all sorts of storage containers, including this one: Rubbermaid 1172 ActionPacker Storage Box, 24-Gallon.
When I moved two racks from the garage upstairs to the sewing room it was hideous because the racks are held together by tension and trying to haul them around caused them to try to spring apart. This would not be as big a problem if you had two or more sturdy people moving them as opposed to one wimpy person like me, but I don't think they are really meant to be moved in one piece. (I think now it would have been quicker and easier to just disassemble the shelves rather than go through what I endured.)
I really like these for sturdiness. The assembly required someone more mechanically-minded and stronger than wimpy me so I am only giving these shelves four stars of five. Having said that, I am probably going to buy one and maybe two more of these as I organize the basement.
The shelves are are pretty poor quality pressboard around 7/16"
The metal corners and shelf supports are 1/16"
If you are looking for something to hold much weight I would look for something heavier duty. If you just need to store some basic lighter weight household items then it would probably be fine.
It says the shelves are designed to hold 500lbs but I would be afraid with half that.
Putting them together was quite easy, although I think it must be done with at least two people. My father held up the vertical supports, while I used a mallet to hammer in the horizontal ones. The rack is a little flimsy until all the pieces are put into place.
Once assembled, the rack feels very solid, and is perfect for medium-weight storage items.
The directions were just pictures no words.
Make sure the shelf supports are right side up.
Make sure the parts are properly aligned and then they are not hard to seat the buttons into the notches with light taps of the hammer.
I broke two of the edge protectors trying to hammer them on. after that I put soapy water on the edge protectors and they slid right on. I had spare ones because I have my shelves stacked tall instead of side by each.
The wood is made of glued sawdust. It is solid and smooth.
The frame was easy to move when assembled before I put the shelves on. No worries of it falling apart while moving
and it is stable even on carpet. no need to lean it against a wall or anything.
I put 3 shelves on the top half so they are close together but it was still easy to slip the shelf down thru the top and put it in position in about 3 seconds for each shelf.
If I live another 50 years I'm sure these shelves will outlast me.
I have another gorilla shelf I bought 10 or fifteen years ago and I move every 2 to 4 years so I knew that this was a good brand easy to break down and move again. We painted that old shelf to protect from rain in the shed but the new one is in the garage and the wood seems to have a coating (the glue?) that will protect it. If I spill a glass of water and clean it right up I think it will be ok so we are not going to bother with painting these.

Flimsy & lightweight. Gorilla Racks used to be sturdy. Don't waste you money. These are cheap imitations of what once was a good product.Published 2 months ago by Flymehome
The rack seems sturdy enough, although the uprights come in 2 pieces which (I feel) is a weak point. Read morePublished on April 18, 2013 by D. Baldi
