These are threaded rods, so the contractor installed wood framing in the ceiling and the rods pass through this framing and are secured with washers and nuts on the top of the framing.

A company named Hafele makes a kit that looks very similar to this and should have all the parts you need. If you google it you should find it pretty easily. If not please contact us and we can assist.

Threaded rods in the picture - I am about to tear out my overhead cabinets and replace with a very similar design as the one in the picture. Are the threaded rods in the picture inside a sleeve or exposed? Can you adjust the distance between the shelves for example, 1 @ 15in and 1@ 9in? Can I ask where you got your hardware? Thank you

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to 8 Ideas For Immaculate Open Shelving
4. Consider hanging shelving. Most of us think of open shelving as being against a wall, but this shelving system adds storage in a normally blank space. Adding this kind of shelving automatically gives you much more kitchen storage space without obstructing the view.
