Brixton IndoorOutdoor Folding Bakers Rack
The Brixton Indoor/Outdoor Folding Bakers Rack is such a well-made product that many customers have fallen like a ton of bricks for it, so to speak.
The black metal rack can be used for a wide range of purposes from displaying knick-knacks to storing pots and pans.
In fact, there are as many uses for it as there many buyers!
This rack can also be used for indoor and outdoor applications. Of course, it’s more likely to last longer indoors than outdoors because it will not be as exposed to the natural elements.
In both cases, proper maintenance, such as regular cleaning of the shelves of accumulated dirt and dust, is a must.
Features and Specifications
The Brixton Indoor/Outdoor Folding Bakers Rack is made from durable metal with a black finish. The thick metal for the main frame was apparently chosen for its strength and sturdiness, which are must-have qualities in multipurpose racks. Even the shelves are made from thick panels of metal, thus, these can carry the weight of several items at a time.
Be sure to distribute the weight evenly over each shelf so that the metal panels will hold their shape. While the thick metal can hold its shape with several full flower pots, for example, it can only hold so much weight. The items should also be centered on the metal panels to reduce the risks of tipping over on its front.
The metal frame has also been powder-coated to ensure its high level of water and weather resistance. For this reason, the bakers’ rack can be placed in an outdoor setting, such as the patio, deck and terrace. The sturdy metal coupled with rust resistance treatment will make it more resistant against rust and corrosion, too.
But for a longer life, the rack is best placed in an indoor area. The lesser levels of exposure to the natural elements will result in significant risk reduction for rust and corrosion.
In case the rack will be placed outdoors, it can be protected with a coat or two of anti-rust treatment. This will delay the onset of rust and corrosion even with 24/7 exposure to sun, rain and snow.
For both indoor and outdoor use, proper maintenance is a must for longevity of the bakers’ rack. Experts recommend regular cleaning of the surfaces of the build-up of dirt and dust, as well as repainting of the surfaces, when necessary. Even durable metal will be subjected to rust and corrosion when left as is for prolonged periods.
The etagere-style bakers’ rack can be folded for fast and easy transportation, such as from the dining room to the patio. The folding style also allows for convenient storage although it must be said that such a thing of beauty shouldn’t remain hidden in the basement.
While the rack requires assembly, it’s as easy as pie. There’s no need for complicated steps and tools because of the two-step assembly – just unfold the rack and hook the shelves to its sides. Be sure to check that the entire rack is as stable as can be before placing various items on the shelves.
The shelves also offer ample space for various items to be placed on them. The shelf heights from the floor are as follows:
- Bottom shelf – 4.33 inches
- Second shelf – 22.44 inches
- Third shelf – 37.40 inches
- Top shelf – 49.21 inches
This means that the space between shelves can accommodate relatively tall objects. The top shelf, for example, can be the place of honor for tall plants while the lower shelves can be for shorter plants.
When assembled, the rack has the following dimensions:
- Height – 61 inches
- Width – 26 inches
- Depth – 18 inches
- Weight – 40 pounds
This is a great rack for apartments, condos and homes with modest spaces. The rack can be placed flush against the wall or on its own (i.e., in a garden), both of which will work well. The grills and scrollwork at the back and sides, respectively, will keep the items from falling out.
The great thing about the rack is its multipurpose function. Every buyer apparently has plans of his/her own for the rack, such as for displaying their knick-knack collection, flower pots, and frames. Many buyers also use it for practical purposes, such as for gardening or baking supplies.
Since the shelves are open, the items can be easily seen. This is a great feature when displaying beautiful things as well as for storing frequently used items, such as in kitchens. This may not be such a great feature for valuables like expensive porcelain.
