Mounting Ikea Algot system questions
Is there anyone out there who has used the Ikea Algot system for their closets? I went to the closest IKEA last week, and unfortunately, over a course of 8 hours there was not a sales associate who could answer this question about how to mount the Algot system to the wall.
Are the uprights supposed to be mounted directly to the walls, or is the system similar to the Container Store Elfa system, in which the uprights are suspended by the horizontal suspension rail, which is mounted to the studs and walls? The size of the shelves of the Algot system make it so that the uprights cannot be mounted to the studs themselves (24 inches vs. the 18 inch studs in my house). Obviously, for hanging clothes you would want more than an anchor in drywall. The SA's at Ikea seemed to be truly bluffed by my question.
I've also posted this on the Ikeafans website, but since GW seems to get more traffic, posted here as well.
