One thing that occurs to me is that every bolt you put into the wall takes some of the load, so how many bolts can you fit in? Also, the more support racks you can fit in, the less the load on each.

Another wacky idea – do you have access to the other side ofthe wall? In other words is it an extenal wall? If you have access, you could put bolts right through and put a plate or bar of some sort horizonatlly on the opposite side of the wall to you racks that each of the bolts goes through. This should also spread the load across more of the wall.

Oh, and since I’m not from Florida, it’s probably a good idea to check my suggestions with someone who knows the local building codes.
