How Much Weight Can I put on my Ceiling Storage Rack?
Ceiling storage racks are a great way to transform your garage space into a safer, more functional, and more organized space than ever before. However, it is important to be mindful of the weight capacity of any ceiling storage rack.
Due to the heavy nature of common garage items, such as bolts and power tools, it is important to have an overhead storage solution that can accommodate the heavy load. Follow this simple guide to ensure everything is secure.
Overhead Ceiling Racks
Overhead ceiling racks are an excellent option when you need a high square-footage amount of storage. These can handle up to a maximum of 165 lbs, and robust options will be able to accommodate more than that weight safely.
With heavy-duty steel framing and customizable sizes, Park Place specializes in supplying overhead ceiling racks that can make your garage a safe and organized space.
Heavy-Duty Overhead Cabinets
Although overhead ceiling racks are a great beginner option, there may come a time when you need even more overhead storage. Typically, wall-mounted cabinets solutions can handle weights of around 100 to 400 lbs. This will depend largely on the individual manufacturer and can go up even higher to the 400+ pound range.
Cabinets by Hayley, which are customizable metal frames that employ galvanized steel countertops, are one of our favorites. Their stainless-steel hinges are particularly useful, ensuring that any acceptable weight that is placed on an overhead storage cabinet will be structurally sound in the long term.
Another good option for heavy-duty as supplied by our store is Baldhead Custom Cabinets. Baldhead specializes in providing customized, heavy-duty cabinets for garage spaces. Touting 13 different color options, different handles, and a choice between metal and glass fronts, the 18-gauge steel employed in Baldhead cabinets is noteworthy. These will maximize structural integrity and give you an even larger amount of space to safely store items in your garage.
Finding the Right Overheard Storage Set up For Your Garage
Although there are various options for overhead storage, including ceiling racks and heavy-duty upper cabinets, the best choice will come down to the client’s individual needs. Overhead ceiling racks are an excellent start, and for many clients, offer more than enough elevated storage.
