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 weight of 20 kilos per shelf. If mounting to a cavity wall, be sure to attach to as many screws as possible into the timber studs. The shelf is designed for many uses, from putting up all your favourite 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 shelves are not included. We can supply some shelf components (see below)
The standard distance between each shelf (B) is 335mm and the overall distance from the wall is 224mm. The standard pipe used is suitable for a shelf depth (A) of 175mm. The total width of the shelf is determined when installing uprights. We recommend the distance between the uprights not to exceed 1000mm. To make a wider unit than this, use 3 uprights.
Galvanised saddles and screws are supplied with our wall shelf kit. These screw to the underside of the timber shelf to stop sideways motion.
The shelf pipework can be assembled by hand and without the use of special tools. Screws are provided for timber, plaster and brick wall surfaces. Note the surface being attached to, and the screws being used, will determine the weight load of the shelf itself.
The shelf depth and distance between the shelves can be customised in the options selection.
The pipe components are supplied for this DIY kit as partly assembled and labelled.
All Galvanised fittings and pipe are cleaned of oil and scrubbed to a reasonable degree. This makes sure no oil remains internally that can weep after assembly.
All Raw steel fittings and pipe are cleaned of mineral oils and prepared with a light coating of Linseed oil. You should re-apply as needed to prevent rusting.
Painted pipework and fittings are cleaned to remove mineral oil and spray coated with primer and then final colour. These are left to dry for 24 hours and inspected prior to shipping.
