How To

Stage 1

Installing Standard Railing Flanges

  • Start off by installing all the Standard Railing Flanges.
  • Measure 12 inches from the ground and 12 inches in between each Standard Rail Flange vertically.
  • Make sure to install the Standard Railing Flanges into the studs of your wall with wood screws.

Steel•Tek Professional Tip

  • The standard distance between studs is 16 inches and since we used 36 inch shelves we went 32 inches accross.

Stage 2

Buidling Legs

  • Slide three Single Socket Tees on each 72 inch pipe. Do not tighten yet.
  • Attach the Flanges on the bottom and the Elbows on the top of your 72 inch pipe.

Stage 3

Installing Shelf Support and Legs

  • Slide 12 inch pipe into each Standard Railing Flange and tighten set screws.
  • Take your first 72 inch pipe and attach Elbow to top 12 inch pipe.
  • Slide your Single Socket Tees up until they are attached to their respective 12 inch pipe and then tighten all set screws.

Stage 4

Placing Wood Shelves

  • Place wooden shelves on each level of horizontal bars.

Steel•Tek Professional Tip

If you have children it is best to secure the wood shelves onto the horizontal pipes with our Offset Flanges.

  • Slide Offset Flanges onto each vertical 12 inch pipe where the tab is facing up. In the tab of the Offset Flange there is a hole for a screw to go through.
  • Go from under the Offset Flange and screw into the wood shelf.
  • We recommend predrilling as not to crack the wood.
