How it Works: We removed the wire decking units from our best-selling rack to cut costs for the customer and improve the user experience. This unit DOES NOT include any decking components. Customer is required to supply adequate decking material. 600lb TOTAL weight capacity between two 4âx4â overhead rack units, when using high quality 3/8â thick plywood. Two 4âx4â plywood sheets are required.
Heavy Duty: We used the same heavy duty materials used in our other products: 14-16 gauge industrial steel to provide a safe and heavy-duty product for your garage! Unlike our competitors, we use case-hardened and heat-treated oversized lag bolts. Our lag bolts are 5/16âx3". We use 27â ceiling brackets to span 2 ceiling joists; spanning two ceiling joists is not necessary, but distributes the weight more evenly. Each 4âx4â rack includes a 4â center support which equates to 3 additional supports in addition to the outer rack framing.
Benefits: Wire decking can be cumbersome and difficult when storing small items or sliding boxes on/off your rack. Plywood is affordable and allows the user to store any size item and slide boxes around with ease. One 4âx8â sheet of plywood is required for both 4âx4â racks. Simply request your plywood supplier to cut one 4âx8â sheet of plywood into two 4âx4â sections and install onto rack! Itâs easy, efficient, and now the most affordable rack on the market!
INDUSTRY WARNING: 600 Pounds is the maximum your garage ceiling can withstand. MonsterRAX is engineered at well over 1,500 pound breaking strength. When shopping for your racks, do not confuse breaking strength with rack capacity. Never load any company's rack to more than 600 pounds or you risk serious damage to your home, life and personal property.
