Industrial plumbing pipe two level wall shelf kit is an industrial looking shelf made from iron plumbing pipe. This wall shelf is made from 1/2″ BSTP threaded 21mm outside diameter plumbing pipe components finished in standard galvanised or black steel finish plumbing pipe.
This shelf is designed to withstand a reasonable weight of 10 kilos in total. Be careful to attach to as many screw points of attachment as possible into timber studs. The shelf is designed for many uses, from putting up all your favorite alcoholic spirits, to integrating plant features. This shelf will turn your everyday storage space into a main feature of the room.
As a DIY kit this product includes this number of parts per upright.
- 1 X 300mm threaded upright pipe length in Galvanised or Black steel
- 2 X 200mm threaded horizontal pipe lengths in Galvanised or Black steel
- 2 X Plumbing pipe Tees in Galvanised or Black steel
- 2 X Wall flanges in Galvanised or Black steel
- 2 X Pipe fitting plugs in Galvanised or Black steel
- 4 Galvanised saddles (to hold down shelf)
Timber and glass component is not included. We do supply shelf components as an option however.(see below)
The standard distance between each level of the shelf is 315mm and the overall distance from the wall is 240mm. The standard timber shelf component width is 180mm. The total length is determined by installation of the uprights. The distance between up-rights should not exceed 1000mm when using ply shelf material however. This will cause the timber bows under load. When making a shelf unit wider than this it will be best to order as 3 uprights.
Metal clamp brackets are supplied with our timber shelf components. These screw to the underside of the timber shelf to stop sideways motion.
This shelf can be assembled built by hand without the need to use a tool. Screws are provided for timber, plaster and brick wall surface. The surface it is being attached to and the screws that are being used, will determine the weight load of the shelf itself. On a plasterboard it will withstand around 7 kilograms and for wood and masonry, it will hold to about 15 kilograms (not including the weight of the timber shelf).
This shelf can be made to custom dimensions for the shelf with and also the space between shelves.
Plumbing pipe parts are protected during transit with a light oil protection. This protects from oxidation and will need to be washed prior to assembly. You should remove traces of oil inside the pipe also. We use a standard Prep wash type solvent but virtually anything that dissolves oil and grease will work.
Assembly is achieved with minimal tools but pipe threads should be tight so as not to come loose. When ordering as black steel pipe product, components should be cleaned with solvent. To protect from rusting a light coat of Linseed oil diluted with mineral turpentine should be applied.
