How much weight can a Billy bookcase hold?

The Billy bookshelf is made of very thin particleboard. It will hold the weight of the television, especially if you affix the bookcase to the wall with a bracket as Malcolm intelligent suggests, but I'm very certain that the top surface panel would begin to sag and give, even under the weight of 43 pounds.

Furthermore, how much weight can an Ikea bookshelf hold?

The problem is Ikea states that the max. load per shelf is 13kg. According to my estimates, each shelf is able to contain approximately 90 or so records depending on how tightly you pack them. Thus each shelf would easily weigh about 25 kg, way in excess of the weight limit.

is the Billy bookcase sturdy? Billy bookshelves are very sturdy, and they don't look like particle board, except that in some colors the back section, which is very flimsy, can look it.

Also know, how many books can a Billy bookcase hold?

The ubiquitous IKEA Billy bookcase, for example, runs almost 30" wide and has 6 shelves. That means it offers just under 180" of shelf. If you need 600 inches of shelf, you'll need 3.33 bookshelves (600 divided by 180).

How do you strengthen a Billy bookcase?

To correct and strengthen your BILLY, all you need is a few more nails (consider using double the nails as suggested in the original instructions) and some wood glue. Place the flimsy backing piece back on your bookcase as directed, but use more nails hammered more closely together.
