I just added this to my still-going-together garage shop last week. I’m still moving in, but have already started a couple of projects. As usual, I’m left with some plywood drops that will be usable on future projects, but I needed a place to store them until that time. I had a spot that was not being used for anything else, so I ordered this wood rack.
I paid $52.64 with free shipping. It arrived fully clothed and unbeaten by Fed-ex. Installation was twelve screws for the twelve brackets, then six screws to mount the verticals to the wall.
It has a 660 lb. rating (110 ibs, per level x 6 levels) and I believe it could handle that with no problem. The brackets are 12” out from the wall. The instructions recommend 4’ to 6’ spacing between the verticals. I went with the 4’ because most of what I will store on this rack will be less than 6 feet in length. I mounted mine above a receptacle and in the middle of an almost 10 foot wall, so I can put 8’ goods on all but the top rack that lines up with other storage bins. In fact, I have already cut and painted a 48” wide by 12” 3/4” plywood shelf that I will screw into the top of this for more shelf storage space.
Very well made, looks nice (I think),sturdy,very inexpensive, easy to assemble, and very useful for my needs.
I recommend this to anyone needing 6 levels of horizontal wood storage.
