Fleximounts Corner 2-Pack 2’ x 4’ Wall Shelving WRC24B
If we are talking about space-saving wall shelves, then you should consider the WRC24B. The shelf makes use of the corner walls in your garage, which otherwise are left empty. But, that’s not all. You can also use it as a two-pack wall shelf, whichever works best for you. Moreover, it is compatible and suited for either concrete walls or wood studs.Its heavy-duty and sturdy performance is all thanks to its construction, which uses powder-coated steel. You do not need to worry about falling objects cluttering your garage or the shelf being wobbly, as each shelf can carry a maximum weight of 220 lbs. Furthermore, the one-piece grid design is an easier assembly that offers excellent stability than other shelves with multi-piece assembly.The assembling and installing process of the wall shelf will be as easy as it gets, for it is specially designed for a one-person installation. And to make things easier, all the hardware, installation templates, and bubble level are already provided in the package. The installation template helps with the mounting holes, while the bubble level helps get the perfect horizontal location.The Fleximounts WRC24B offers excellent flexibility when storing your items as it has additional storage options. You can quickly expand the storage with the Fleximounts GRH1/GRH1B hooks or GRH2/GRH2B hooks. You can use the hooks to store bikes, tools, cleaning materials, and more.
2. For seasonal items and other purposes
Fleximounts Lift 4′ X 4′ Overhead Garage Storage Rack GL44B
Have you ever considered installing ceiling-mounted storage? If not, you might as well give it a second thought. Why? Ceilings are almost always bare, except for a few lighting fixtures. And if you want to maximize the available space in your garage that isn’t the floor space, then look up, and you will find that you should use the ceiling wisely.One overhead garage storage that you should look into is the GL44B. What sets it apart from the other storage systems is that it can be lowered or raised using a crank or power drill (if you want a more seamless and smooth operation). Getting this extra and–we dare say–powerful feature removes the need for a ladder or any heavy lifting. It protects you from potential accidents caused by reaching heavy loads above the ground as it eases access to your items without using a ladder or any materials required to be stepped on. Moreover, it can carry a maximum weight of 300 lbs and lift a maximum of 108 inches vertically.If you wonder how it actually works, well, the storage lift has a safe and secure mechanism–a specially designed safety lock prevents any movement when not in use. Use the winding pole to pull out the safety lock on the gearbox, then push back in to lock after use. However, you do need to worry that things might go awry when using the mechanism as the rack is made of heavy-duty steel cables, which secure the rack in place.The GL44B also boasts flexibility in compatibility with angled ceilings because of its adjustable length steel cable. Additionally, it is universally compatible with different ceiling joists of both wood joists and concrete ceilings–12”, 16”, and 24” ceiling joist spacing. But a word of caution–it does not fit metal joists.Moreover, aside from its storage capacities, the Lift 4′ X 4′ Overhead Garage Storage Rack GL44B is designed for multiple uses such as lifting hardtop, car top carrier, kayak with straps, and many more.
As it has always been said, garages nowadays are not only used as vehicle parking and storing of items but also utilized as workshop space. All the handyman works, metal works, or other activities you do, the garage is a place where you can practice them. As such, a heavy-duty and reliable workbench that can also serve as storage is one that you should invest in. The WB107 is a great product that you should look into.The workbench is made of heavy-duty steel, making it possible to store twice the storage than traditional workbenches. Its iron-made workbench legs last for years. Plus, it has top-quality stainless steel screws. The workbench has a loading capacity of up to 100 lbs per shelf.The WB107 can be customizable to suit your taste, and you can stain, paint or finish the wood as desired.
