Heavy Duty Overhead Storage Rack-4 x 4 (GT7008E)
The GT7008E Heavy Duty Overhead Storage Rack-4 x 4 allows you to use that valuable ceiling space you own but probably don t use efficiently. This rack has a capacity to provide 64 cubic feet of space when the full drop distance of 48 is used. The drop distance can be shortened if you have limited ceiling height as described in the assembly instructions. This Heavy Duty Rack has a load capacity is 400 lbs. The heavy gauge mesh shelf has a galvanized finish and the rack structural components have a beige enamel finish. The most popular application for this rack is to install two of them above the garage door on each side of the door track. For garages with low ceilings the choice is often for installation to be at the back of the garage above the vehicle(s) hood. Of course it can be located anywhere as shown in a diagram in the slide show on the left. Another storage suggestion would be to install hanger hooks GT4014E from the wire grid shelf and hang a bike(s) garden tools or sport sticks from the hooks. The types of items most commonly stored are those with seasonal needs. This might include bulky holiday house yard decorations seasonal sporting equipment or those large plastic bins. The use of wire mesh shelves allows to for easily viewing what is stored on the rack. We offer two other alternative overhead storage rack options: 1) the Heavy Duty Overhead Storage Rack 4 x 8 ft. (GT7009E ) which is twice the size of the 4 x 4 ft. GT7008E and is constructed using the same industrial grade materials. The second alternative is the Overhead Storage Rack 4 x 4 GT7004E. The storage space cube of the GT7004E is 53 cu ft. and the capacity is 150 lbs. The other consideration is the two Heavy Duty versions (GT7008E and GT7009E) can be located anywhere in the garage but the Standard Duty Rack GT7004E can only be located (mounted) directly in line with the ceiling beams. This rack can be installed to wooden ceiling and floor joists not to metal joists or concrete ceilings. Another option is to install on our Ceiling. Assembly Difficulty-Moderate
