Tips for planning your shelving system

You can easily plan your modular shelving system yourself with the stocubo configurator. Please read our tips to ensure that your shelf can be realized and that there are no misunderstanding during planning: 

2:1 Modules

Due to the long upper sides and the material thickness, the 2:1 modules can bend under heavy loads. 

As a guide, we advise you not to plan more than two rows of cube on a 2:1 module.

To support this, we offer loose intermediate sides or the installation of a fixed middle side in the shop. 2:1 modules are suitable for wall mounting only with low loads.


The square 1:1 modules are very suitable for carrying the heavy weight of vinyl.

2:1 modules, on the other hand, are not designed for heavy loads and should not be included in the record shelf.


Base plates

The floor often has small differences in height. With the help of the height-adjustable feet, about 1 cm can be compensated.

They are also necessary when planning cubes with doors in the bottom row so that the doors do not drag on the floor when opening and closing. We also offer roller plates in the shop.



During the purchase process, the recommended number of clips will be automatically calculated. Our guideline is 2 clips per cube (except for wall mounting).

Frequently asked questions about our shelving systems

How do I set up my shelving system?

The construction is very simple: Stack your cubes and attach the brackets for stabilization, either as a visible design element on the front or invisible on the back. That's it! You only need tools for fastening wall shelves and aligning the base plates. The cubes themselves are delivered fully assembled. You can read more about stacking in our assembly tips.

Do I need base plates for my shelving systems?

Not necessarily. However, base plates are a good idea for uneven floors: With their height-adjustable feet, they compensate for unevenness so that the cubes can stand firmly and securely on them, no matter how high the shelf is. We recommend base plates especially for old buildings that often have slightly sloping floors. In the case of very small shelving systems, no base plates are usually necessary.

What should I watch out for when attaching the shelving systems to the wall?

Individual modules can also be attached to the wall in just a few simple steps. You can simply order a wall bracket for this. You will then receive a rail that is attached to the wall with two screws. We provide the cube with a bar that can be easily hooked into the rail. Whether you hang rectangular modules vertically or horizontally is entirely up to you.

Do I need an additional wall mount?

Usually not. Our shelving systems are stable and load-bearing even when they are tall, especially when they are generously fixed with connecting clamps. If you want to be on the safe side, for example with a large wall of shelves crammed with books, you can also use L-brackets from the hardware store to prevent the top row from tipping over.

How are my shelving systems delivered?

The individual cubes are already assembled by us, so that you only have to stack them. Accordingly, your shelving system comes either by DHL GoGreen (small orders) or by forwarding agency (larger orders). Alternatively, you can collect your order from us personally. For this you can contact us at any time.

How do I care for my shelving systems?

Our shelving systems are robust and easy to care for: it is sufficient to simply walk over them with a feather duster or a damp cloth from time to time. You don't necessarily have to take books or records off the shelf for this. A cleaning agent is not required. In the case of uncoated modules, small stains can be carefully sanded away with fine sandpaper.

In which colors are the modules available?

The cubes are coated in white and you can choose between a natural wood or a black edge. You can really show your colors with the slide-in units and the modules with doors: They can be supplied in white, blue, yellow, green or gray, depending on your requirements.
