Mounting Your Pole Shelves

Pole shelving systems can be wall-mounted, use compression to support the shelves between floor and ceiling, or use a hybrid semi-wall mounted approach, mounting the shelves on the wall while using the floor for additional support.  Determining which option is best for your home or office depends on the materials used in constructing your space and the condition of your walls, ceilings, and floors.  Luckily Vitsoe, the makers of the 606 Universal Shelving System, offer a detailed shelf planning guide on their site to help you decide which configuration suits you best.  Whether you go with the higher-end Vitsoe or another choice, unless you’re pretty handy, installing pole shelving can be time-consuming  and frustrating, so it’s advised to get them professionally installed or have a handy friend over to help.
