Yeah I would totally agree if the shelves were particle board but these are definitely wire

Okay, I finally made it home so here is the full link AND the large sized picture.
I get what someone was saying about particle-board shelving but there is no wood product involved in what I'm suggesting.

Looking for some opinions from you guys that have (heavy) 3-keggle systems. Do you think this would work as well as I do?

One shelf as low as possible, one shelf about 2' high, the top shelf as high as possible...

Also, what I found with mine is that there really wasn't enough room to stir the mash tun as it just fit in between the bars. Also, I couldn't fit my burner and keggle in the bottom shelf, and there isn't enough space for the keggle to fit in between the horizontal bars if you were able to take out some of the "floor" of the level above it.
A three tier system just won't work with this. However, a single tier system will work very well as you can raise up the second level to be able to access the tops of the kegs.

I have a similar system for general basement storage and the bottling pipeline. The local big box store sells the pieces ala carte so you can select 18-30" depths, 3'-8' heights, and 4'-8' widths. Its a versatile set up and would work IMO as long as you don't intend on moving it on brew day. My 30" deep wireshelves do deflect quite a bit with cases of bombers on them so plan on beefing up front to back between the side rails for keggles etc.
