We have known the Gladiator brand for years as the go to company for garage storage cabinets and tool chests and storage. Gladiator GarageWorks is a division of the Whirlpool Corporation and is the leader in garage and household organization and storage systems offering pre-assembled and ready-to-assemble lines of modular workbenches, cabinets, wall systems and more. We just moved into a new home and have a large area under the house that Chris uses for his work area, storing lawn equipment, etc. and we have been trying to get it organized since we moved in. We had an old metal shelf in the garage from the old house that has wooden shelves and since it stays so cool and moist under the house those things have warped like crazy. We wanted shelving that was easy to assemble, which makes me think of plastic, but plastic makes me thing of wimpy and we need something that can really hold some weight. I saw the new EZ Connect shelving line from Gladiator and had to reach out to them to see if we could get a unit to try out.
Gladiator EZ Connect shelving is available in three sizes, 36″ wide with 18″ deep shelves, 48″ wide with 18″ deep shelves and 48″ wide with 24″ deep shelves which is the unit we chose. The most difficult part of assembling these shelves is unboxing them. The click and lock design made it so easy to assemble, Chris was able to complete it in less than 30 minutes all by himself and it required absolutely no tools. Once you get the lower shelf started you just keep building up sliding the tabs on each shelf into the angled slots on the posts and press down.
The laminated shelves are rated to hold 1,000 pounds each which means you can store virtually anything on these shelves, even food since they are NSF certified for food storage. Deep shelves mean you can store many items and being 48 inches wide items can be displayed so that they can be quickly identified. Since as you can see we store various chemicals and liquid items on these shelves we love that the laminated shelves are so easy to clean, just wipe and go. The Gladiator EZ Connect Shelves come with a 10 year warranty that covers replacement or repair of the defective product or parts to correct defects in materials or workmanship. Gladiator brand products are sold through local garage dealers, retailers like Lowe’s, The Home Depot, and Sears, and at www.GladiatorGarageWorks.com. Check out these awesome shelves and see how easy they are to assemble and get organized today!
