Two bays of Ladderax modular shelving & storage designed by Robert Heal in 1964 for Staples of Cricklewood, London.
– Excellent restored condition
The Ladderax System consists of a number of upright ladders, supporting shelves and cabinets. These are fixed by resting on steel support rods, hooked on to the rungs of the ladders. They fit into grooves under the shelves and cabinets. This allows easily assembly and flexibility. Ladderax does not require any permanent fixing to a wall because it self-supports. If preferred this system can be fixed to the wall as the steel uprights have holes in place.
This sale is for two bays. We have also shown a photograph of three bays set up as we have another single bay listed which if purchased could be configured as shown in the last photograph.

X1 Three drawer base unit
X1 Sliding wooden door cabinet (with glass shelf)
X1 Glazed display cabinet (with glass shelf)
X1 Bureau cabinet (with glass shelf)
