Edsal Heavy-Duty Steel Shelving, 5 Shelves, 72H x 48W x 24D, Black
According to the box, the capacity of these shelves is 1,000 lbs per shelf.
I purchased several about 6 months ago. I've filled them with far far less that 1,000 lbs each. Without weighing things, I'd say the max on any shelf is under 250 lbs with the average being 100 give or take.
With the exception of one shelf which only has about 25 lbs on it, all are sagging seriously. It seems that the plywood shelves just won't hold even 1/10th of the advertised weight without showing the strain. I'm afraid several will give up the ghost at some point, shelf and contents being dumped onto the shelf below. (I wonder if there will be a cascade effect?)

Purchased this item because of the 24" deep shelving (included the wood shelf) and the 72" highth for upper storage. Product was easy to assemble by the instructions and only required a hammer to piece together the corner posts.
I will be buying another one of these.
