B&Q’s Heavy Duty Two Tier Staging is both attractive and sturdy



B&Q Tel. 0845 609 6688


Green powder coated aluminium, which took four hours to build. Measures 45in (115cm) long x 20in (50cm) wide x 291/2in (75cm) high.


Both shelves are slatted and each slat has to be screwed in place with self-tapping screws. Using spacers helped to accurately site the slats. Shame that these aren’t included The leg braces add stability.


Very sturdy and attractive as well as being lightweight. The generous length is useful and it has a great quality of finish. Would look good in the grandest of greenhouses and should last for years to come.


Good value for its weight and size but will frustrate some purchasers as it’s very tedious and complicated to fix together. An outstanding buy as long as you have time and patience to spare.
