Industrial plumbing pipe four level floor shelf kit is an industrial looking shelf made from plumbing pipe. This large floor shelf is made from vintage style plumbing components are finished in standard galvanised or black steel finish plumbing pipe. Designed to withstand a reasonable weight, this shelf is designed for many uses, from storing boxes and books, to plant feature stacking. This shelf will turn your everyday storage space into a main feature of the room.
This shelf is attached to the wall and floor by means of decorative steel flanges or plain galvanised flanges. The floor connection will take the weight and the wall connection will hold it in place. Shelves are located via holes drilled in correct location and install whilst constructing. We supply a diagram and instructions with this kit of parts.
Each shelf kit will require at least two upright brackets. Most shelf units will be comprised of 3 uprights but here you have a choice of two or three uprights as a calculated product. If you require 4 then order two “two uprights”. If you need 5 then order one “two uprights” and one “three uprights” on the order. You can also specify the length of the bottom pipe to get the bottom shelf away from the floor a little more.
Example pictured is a 3 upright black steel floor shelf with hardwood shelves 1900mm long and 255mm wide with a 22mm hole drilled 26mm in the center from the front of the shelf. The height of this example is 1525mm to the center of the top flange. The shelves are 285mm between levels with the top of the bottom shelf 480mm from the floor. This example uses hardware store supplied standard shelf width of 235mm and it “floats” a distance from the wall. To create a shelf unit that touches the wall you will need a shelf cut to 250mm width.
A standard DIY kit this product includes this number of parts per upright. The default shelf is made from pre-manufactured standard pipe lengths.
- 3 X 250mm threaded shelf upright pipe lengths in Galvanised or Black steel
- 4 X 150mm threaded shelf pipe lengths in Galvanised or Black steel
- 2 X 200mm threaded shelf leg and top lengths in Galvanised or Black steel
- 2 X 200mm threaded pipe legs in Galvanised or Black steel (for 470mm option)
- 1 X Plumbing pipe Coupler in Galvanised or Black steel
- 4 X Plumbing pipe Tees in Galvanised or Black steel
- 2 X Wall flanges in Galvanised or Black steel
- 5 X Pipe fitting Elbows in Galvanised or Black steel
Timber components are not included in this product. If you are supplying your own shelving the dimension for our default product design should be a width of 235mm which is a standard hardware shelf width. This will then allow the shelf supports and shelf to remain 20mm from the wall. The hole that needs to be drilled out for the pipe to travel through will need to be 20mm diameter 26mm at a center distance from the front edge. This can be hardwood, pine, or plywood. We recommend a distance between uprights at around 840mm but shelf material and requirements can allow for greater support widths.
Custom shelf dimensions
The standard distance between each shelf top is 291mm. (B) This can be customised when ordering with a dimension that will alter the whole unit height.
The standard distance from the wall using 235mm timber shelf is 255mm. (D) This leaves a 20mm gap behind the shelf. If you wish to order as a close to the wall fit then make your timber shelves 255mm wide.
A custom shelf width can be included when placing the order to make as required.
You can also choose to alter the spacing between shelves using the custom section. Be aware that this will alter the whole unit height.
In addition to shelf height you can alter the top (C) and bottom support pipe lengths. (A)
To make it simple all these dimensions added together will make up a total height. A+C+(3 X B)
We will cut and thread to accommodate the threaded overlaps.
This fitting is built by hand one shelf at a time insitu. Flange screws are provided for timber, plaster or brick. This design can take quite a load but specific capacity is determined by the shelving material and the distance between uprights. For greater load bearing place uprights closer together.
Before you see our end products, they begin much differently. Each piece of furniture we create starts with individual components. When supplying an assembled shelf all galvanised components are prep washed by hand using Scotch Brite pads. DIY kit components come covered with a light oil protection and will need to be washed at least prior to assembly. When ordering as black steel pipe product, components are cleaned and to protect from rusting you should apply a light coat of Linseed oil after assembly. When ordered as a DIY kit these parts are supplied with a light oil to protect. These could be left as is or cleaned for DIY assembly.
