Shelves vs. Racks Shelves themselves d of aluminum or steel which ensures longevity and durability. The racks made of plastic may be more suitable in areas that experience excessive moisture and heat however. Plastic also has the advantage of being more resistant to damage from chemicals or grease, which makes them ideal for most industrial uses.
If there are high ceilings in the garage then there are specially designed shelving units that hang from the ceiling. These enable you to hang, and place things on the shelving, allowing vital floor space to not be used. If you decide to fit this design of shelving you will need to ensure they are not in the way of the garage door mechanism. They will also need to be fitted securely, and at the correct height often they can be adjusted to suit different requirements. Often this design of shelving is made from metal, ensuring that it is more durable and strong.
Floor-supported garage shelving is another site-built option. One method for constructing these is to form upright supports by running vertical 2x4 boards every 50 inches. Each 2x4 should rest on the floor and be attached to a rafter or ceiling joist at the top. Then, additional 2x4 boards are attached horizontally on edge between the uprights and particle board is used to create the shelf. Dimensions are usually 19-25 inches deep with 25 inches between each shelf. These are only suggested dimensions and can be adjusted to better accommodate the size of the items that will be stored.
