Monsterrax – 4×8 Overhead Garage Storage Rack Heavy Duty Review

Running short of storage space? Think creatively and solve your storage needs with this heavy duty Overhead Garage Storage Rack.

Features

At a weight of 50.5lbs and measuring a sizeable 96” x 48” x 45”, this industrial quality steel storage rack comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

With a white finish on the rails and silver coated shelves, Monsterrax – 4×8 Overhead Garage Storage Rack Heavy Duty will be a versatile alternative to using valuable floor space. Do-it-yourself installation with basic handyman tools will have you packing away those seldom-used goods in mere hours.

The depth of the storage shelf allows for items to be placed one atop the other – remember to put flat items down first and place smaller items on top. Do not attempt to balance unevenly sized or weighted objects, especially when reaching overhead. Be equally cautious if using a ladder to reach the rack.

The storage rack has a breaking strength of 1500lbs, but be aware that for safety reasons, you should not attempt to store more than 600lbs in any one area – not due to any defect in the product, but because this is the likely breaking strength of your ceiling.

The product may be installed to descend between 24” and 45” from your ceiling for convenient accessibility.

The bracket length allows for the vertical uprights to be fitted laterally at any distance between the two holding bolts. Ensure that the bolts are attached to ceiling joists to maximize safety of weight capacity.

The Monsterrax Overhead Garage Storage Rack is available in three more handy sizes:

  • MonsterRAX Overhead Garage Storage Rack (24″ to 45″ Ceiling Drop), 4′ x 4′, White
