Features and Specifications
The Furinno 4-tier Multipurpose Storage Rack with Bins has a minimalist design, as characterized by its clean lines instead of elaborate scrollwork on the shelves. But what it lacks in elaborate scrollwork it more than makes up for in elegant contemporary design!
Besides, the simple yet stylish design means that the rack will match the existing décor in most homes. You can place it in a modernist kitchen or in a cozy living room – and it will fit in, so to speak. You can change the types of items and their arrangements on the shelves as often as you like, thanks to its versatile quality.
Plus, the rack comes in two color options – dark cherry and black. You may want the dark cherry rack for your living room, for example, while the black rack will work well in your black-and-red kitchen. The reasonable price on the rack should make it possible to buy two of it for your home, too.
The rack is made from several types of materials, most of which are environment-friendly. In fact, the composite wood is CARB-compliant and carries the Forest Stewardship Council Certification.
- The engineered particleboard used on the shelf panels is made from the recycled materials of rubber trees. This is known for being durable and stable (i.e., less warping) when properly cared for, such as less exposure to moisture.
- The PVC tubes are also eco-friendly since these are made from recycled plastic. Like the engineered particleboard, the tubes are also sturdy and strong – each shelf has a 25-pound capacity.
Just keep in mind that the shelves shouldn’t be overloaded (i.e., keep within the weight limit) and the items should be stacked in an orderly manner. Otherwise, the entire rack can come falling down like a ton of bricks, which is true for any overloaded storage rack.
When it comes down to it, the storage rack is made from 90 to 95 percent recycled materials. If you’re the type of consumer with eco-friendly principles when buying products, you may well put it on top of your list for this reason.
Also, the engineered particleboards have no foul smell, even when in its out-of-the-box condition. This is in contrast with many particleboards used on storage racks, which sometimes requiring airing out to remove their bad smell.
The unique tube-and-panel system is also a great feature on this storage rack. There are several benefits arising from it including:
- Great for rooms requiring vertical storage (i.e., limited floor space)
- Adjustable arrangement for the shelves since the tubes and panels can be configured to achieve different heights – just by adding or subtracting tiers
The open layout of the shelves is also a nice feature in the storage rack. You have the benefit of easy identification, removal and replacement, and access to the items displayed and stored on the shelves. You can even quickly rearrange the items, in case you get tired of the present set-up.
Once assembled, the storage rack should be placed on a flat surface. You should ideally assemble it in the room where you plan on placing it, too. You don’t want to lift such a heavy rack between two rooms, especially not from the first to the second floor.
And speaking of assembly, the Furinno storage rack has a smart design that allows for fast, easy and convenient assembly. You don’t need tools to assemble it, thanks to the tube-and-panel system.
You can assemble it in 10 minutes on your own – less time, if you have an able assistant. Just repeat as many times as necessary the twist, turn and stack procedure for the shelves.
Tip: Read the instructions first. The booklet that it comes with has pictographs detailing the steps, which aids in the fast and easy assembly. You will find a few minor errors in the English language – the storage rack is assembled in Malaysia – but the text is sufficiently clear.
Even with its sturdy engineered particleboards and PVC tubes, proper care is still a must to maintain its durability. The manufacturer recommends wiping the surfaces with a clean, damp cloth whenever the need arises, such as in dust accumulation. Harsh chemicals and cleaners shouldn’t be used on any part of the storage rack, too.
The middle shelf is 13 inches tall, which should be sufficient height for hardcover books. The shelves are 24 inches across and 12 inches deep. The bins measure 9.5 inches across, 12 inches high, and 11 inches deep.
The Furinno 4-tier Multipurpose Storage Rack with Bins has the following advantages:
- Easy to assemble without tools necessary (assembly within 10 minutes with three easy steps)
- Spacious shelves
- Sturdy materials when used properly
- Stable and solid construction when the panels and tubes are properly connected
- Multiples uses in the kitchen, living room or bedroom, even a home office
But a few customers also complain of the following issues:
- Cheap fabric-covered cardboard bins
- Non-laminated shelf bottoms
- Plastic tubes aren’t as sturdy as expected, thus, the rack is unsuitable for heavy-duty use.
The Furinno 4-tier Multipurpose Storage Rack with Bins isn’t the best storage rack in the market, far from it. But if you’re looking for a storage with good quality at an affordable price, then this is a great choice.
The rack can be easily assembled with its tube and panel system, which also makes it easy to adjust and clean. The shelves and bins provide adequate space for most residential needs. The price is easy on the wallet, too, considering the quality.
The bottom line: You can consider it a good buy!
