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

The SafeRacks – 4×8 Overhead Garage Storage Rack Heavy Duty is a good option for household owners who want to have extra storage for their garage, attics and basements. This is because the product comes with a ceiling-mounted design that can be used to store all the items that are usually left lying on the garage floor.

Since the garage floor is already free from obstructions, the space obtained can now be used for stowing other valuable items.

Aside from the storage space provided between the ceiling and the rack’s mesh flooring, the empty space below it can also be utilized for hanging other valuable items that must be neatly stowed like bikes, strollers and other household tools.

As the rack is made of durable materials and can be securely mounted on the ceiling, it can effectively carry the items stored in it, without having to worry that it might break down or collapse. However, users are advised to make sure that the ceiling where the rack is mounted is capable of handling heavy loads.
