I purchased this 4-tier unit on the primarily on the premise that it was white and fairly heavy duty, per the advertised product photo. When it arrived, the box indicated the same, however, the frame is white but the shelves are not; they are raw untreated 10mm MDF board, not painted and they have a foul smell that lingers for weeks.
As for the "Heavy steel profile rack" claim - I'm not sure what steel they are using, but it certainly is not the steel that I'm familiar with on similar units; the upright sections bend very easily (with just your fingers), even when assembled. The unit is not very sturdy when assembled and once the shelf boards are in place, the longer metal shelf holders (front and back) bow outward and don't seem to "support" any of the shelves fully - I cannot see this unit lasting very long at all. The claim on the box is 150kg's on each shelf (i.e. 600kg's for the 4-tier unit)- I highly doubt the unit will take 50kg's in total before collapsing. The upright supports will certainly not take that much weight. I would expect their 5-tier unit is even worse as this would be holding "up to 750kg's".
The claim of Easy-to-install is questionable at best, even for an avid DIY enthusiast - yes it looks easy and yes if the parts fitted it would be easy, however, the metal couplings used to join the top two shelves to the bottom two shelves does not fit over the upright profiles in all cases - even after aligning them and pounding with a decent rubber mallet they would not fit and started buckling the joiner and upright; after a bit of DIY workshop surgery, the parts eventually fitted, albeit the white powder coating is now chipped off; this seems to be a pure manufacturing/quality issue with the fitment of the parts.
Finally, be aware, and don't expect a solid shelf unit - it may be fine if you're using it for general lightweight storage (under 40kg's in total), but certainly not for use in a garage, workshop, etc.
