Simple trapeze frames lag bolted together and glued, then lagged into ceiling beams. These are also floor beams for the room above so you may want to make sure tou know what you are bolting into. Finally painted them too, a tip is to paint prior to instal !!.

Ladder rack is trapeze frame, but instead of wood for the supports, it is 5/8” threaded rod and pvc cover with wood washers. I saw this somewhere, but modified to have some conduit storage on the sides. Also, this is a two level for my step and extension ladder.

I have one of these storage racks ove my workbench, allows you to hang some clamps and other items, but most make use of useless space over the garage doors. Also, sides of trapeze where unused over the workbench, so I store sawhorses, roller guides, and my 6’ ladder on som simple custom holders.

That’s quite an overhead storage rack! It looks like a lot of storage room.
