Best bit of the system
JB111 - 3 years ago
I bought the whole spacepro system for a large double wardrobr. It arrived on time but annoyingly some of the flat pack units had components missing so the tip is unpack and check everything before you start
The metal parts works quite well, are sturdy and simple to fit together.But ... watch your measurements and make sure to allow for the thickness of any brackets etc you use with the poles. In a large wardrobe using 8 brackets we were 16mm out when fitting the last shelf which meant refitting the last pole.
Shelves are fine but surpringly soft and easily damaged. Flatpack drawer units were the worst part looking cheap but they are functional. Overall an ok system quite expensive for what you get .
Good Looking functional system at good price

Just fitted our wardrobe using 4 x standard mirror louver doors with Relax fittings in Linen finish. Really pleased with the look of the doors and has a solid feel. I found the worst part of the job was fitting the drawer units as lining up the bracket for the top screw fixing is difficult and you have to be pretty accurate - my solution was to drill the side panels - then I had 4 setting blocks on the floor to set height the same and fitted brackets and checked all aligned BEFORE I made the drawer units up.
Look out for the small allen key needed for the Shoe rack. luckily I found one for the tiny allen screw on a bike tool. - it would be good if allen keys were supplied like other manufacturers do- all in all though very good.

Beware of any gaps where the stanchions are not 90cm or 55cm apart, though the shoe rack and clothes hanger bars readily cut down to size the shelves do not.
The units themselves are obviously built for other installation situations. There were no predrilled holes for the connections to the rails. Really easy to split the chipboard and break off chunks of laminate in doing so.
I never found a way to purchase individual fixings so for instance you couldn’t make two 610mm hanger bars or shoe racks from the 1220mm rails supplied or create a tie or belt rack from offcuts.
Stanchions – Fine, and easy to cut to size. They do scratch if the brackets slip when not properly deployed (sometimes the retaining tab on the fixings doesn’t rotate to be secured properly in the stanchion’s groove)
Shelves – Made of Chip board, covered in a thick laminate on the sides, but very thin on top and bottom surfaces. Though you are expected to cut these to size for gaps that are not the standard widths (90cm of 55cm) it is extremely difficult to achieve at home. The chipboard breaks up even with a fine saw and with the shelf sandwiched in scrap timber, then the thin laminate is easily damaged, nothing is supplied to disguise the cut edges. When you sand the exposed ends of the chip board, the glue seems to melt then re-set to create a fairly smooth edge to the cut surface.
Shoe rack, it isn’t obvious for the Website that actually you can fit shoe racks in pairs to create a double depth rack.
Drawers – The same chipboard and laminate as used for the shelves. Very heavy for the supplied fittings no instructions for installing onto the rails. Precision drilled holes for constructing the drawers, but none for the fixings to the rails. When I used a self-tapping screws to secure to the brackets the chipboard buckled and split off a chunk of thin laminate. In contrast, the runners are really very high quality – very impressed.
Trouser Draw –Again no holes or instructions for fitting to the stanchions. Very heavy for the fittings. Once again, the runners were of a much higher quality than the unit itself.
Basket – NOT suitable for domestic construction! I broke three of the supplied “T” brackets. It would take a factory setting or long clamps to successfully construct this without breaking these brackets. I was really pleased I had purchased through B&Q whose help line arranged replacement brackets and dispatch of broken ones to their Quality Assurance team with minimum fuss. I have abandoned all hope of successfully using the T brackets and bolted on some flat corner braces instead. There is no reason for this not to be supplied ready constructed since the basket is the largest component. The design is poorly thought through. On first glance it looks as if the basket is supported along a small shelf running the width of the unit, but then you see the wire frame was constructed with the wire from the sides lower than the front and back, so the basket is supported over 2mm instead of 900mm. Once again, the runners were of a much higher quality than the unit itself.
