It really depends on the product, what you are going to use it for and your personal preference. 

We recommend choosing the sealed options for the following reasons:

- Unsealed plywood is more susceptible to moisture and staining, especially in high-moisture areas such as kitchens or bathrooms
- Sealed plywood is easier to clean
- Sealing the edges and surface offers an extra layer of protection for the plywood and will extend the life of your product
- Sealing can help prevent discolouration over time and can enhance the material giving it a more aesthetic look

To keep costs down, some of our products are available unsealed as raw, sanded timber. In some applications, no further finishing is required, particularly if you are comfortable with cleaning any marks with some fine sandpaper (180 grit). 

Yes, they come with a Wall Mounting Kit and we recommend having an appropriately accredited tradesperson fix The Shelves to a wall using suitable fixing devices to prevent them from tipping over.
