It depends on what your needs are, but an average NEAT storage system, installed, with everything hanging is usually about 1/3 the cost in the same space than any other installed garage storage system. An average system cost is between $1,800 to $2,400 dollars.
If you have 1,000 lbs distributed weight on the upper shelf (every 4 feet), there is still plenty capacity to put several hundred pounds of weight on the rack, especially with the bars closer to the wall. The shelves have been tested to hold over four times the advertised rating for safety.
The Monkey Bar bars and hooks are designed to hold distributed weight of 200 lbs. Depending on which one is used, the hooks can hold from 30 to 100 lbs. The longer hooks have less capacity than the shorter hooks. The wider the rear support, the greater capacity.
Not at all, if you apply safe ladder and lifting practices. We recommend that the containers for the shelves are packed at a weight that the shelf user can easily lift the containers at least head height. Use only a sturdy “step” ladder positioned so that you are walking toward the shelf. Place the ladder so the top is at least two or three feet away from the shelf. It can be helpful to hand containers to others on the ground. Avoid twisting while lifting.
Efficiency. The concept is to free up space in the garage by putting seldom used container items in “wasted” space that is out of the way. To avoid crowded traffic routes and spaces, especially in small garages, shelves over the head is the best solution.
They can hold at least four times the weight capacity. There will be no stress cracks as typically seen in ceiling racks. They do not affect the amount of light in the garage. Items can be stacked as high as the ceiling will allow. The height can be exactly customized to your needs. There is an added option to hang items under the shelves with bars and hooks.
There are several reasons: It is always much better to get more minds involved in garage solutions, especially anyone who may be using any part of the garage. The shelves are custom installed based on the height of the users and what is going to be stored.
MB Cabinets are made form 3/4"-1" thick particle board coated with melamine. Melamine can come in a variety of colors, designs, and wood grains. They are moisture resistant and won’t rot or warp as compared to wood cabinets.
Monkey Bars Cabinets use 3mm edge banding on all doors and drawer fronts because it is very durable and won’t peel over time. We are able to mount the cabinets to directly to the wall studs, eliminating the need for legs. This makes it much easier to clean underneath the cabinets. Both our shelves and drawer glides are rated to hold 100 lbs without bowing or breaking.
Monkey Bars cabinets are made of melamine and formica. Most multi-purpose cleaners work fine on these surfaces. There are cleaners that are specific to cabinets and countertops that are encouraged. A damp rag will often do the trick. *We highly discourage the use of citrus cleaners due to the fact that they will eat/burn the color out of your cabinet.
We have cracks and minor imperfections in floors on almost every job. Our crack repair materials will fix almost any crack and hide it from sight once the floor is complete. You will likely never know where the crack was by the time the job is finished.
The floors can be slippery when wet because they are impervious to liquids. The full layer of chips adds texture to help with the slipperiness. If this is a real concern for you then a special anti-slip product can be added to the top coat for an additional charge.
Our coatings are impervious to liquids so oil and chemicals can be wiped up without staining the floor. Dirt and other debris can be washed out simply with a hose or light pressure wash. You will be amazed at how easily the floor comes clean.
Our material is a Polyurea Aspartic material. Also sometimes called a polyaspartic.
There are very slight difference between the two materials. They would never be noticed to the average consumer. Properties are very similar, UV stable, excellent elongation, and excellent scratch resistance. Most polyureas can go down a little thicker. Polyaspartics are thinner.
More important than that is the differences between these two products is the difference between a polyaspartic from one company and a polyaspartic from another company. Not all are created equal. Our material is an 87% solids polyurea material. Most of the other products available from other companies is around a 73% solids material (in other words it's watered down with solvents). When you water a product down with solvents you get a less strong material. So the higher the solids the better, usually. Just because both companies are installing a comparable material does not mean it is a comparable material.
The difference is the process and products that we use. First we take the time and have the equipment to grind the concrete. Next, we use the highest quality products that are on the market. These products are for professional install only; therefore they are not watered down with additional solvents to aid with installing like DIY kits are. This gives your floor the guarantee of remaining stuck to the concrete and remains strong enough to handle a lot of wear and tear.
There are numerous benefits to choosing colors flakes over a solid epoxy coating, those advantages include: A full layer of chips for extra protection to your concrete. A broad range of chip colors to choose from to match you garage/home. The color flakes add texture to the floor for slip resistance. The color flakes also cover up and hide cracks and chips in your concrete.
The cost for the floor varies and it is almost impossible to give a quote without coming to your home and looking at the condition of the concrete, the amount of cracks that may need repaired, and stem walls that you may want to coat as well as color options and size of the garage floor.
Yes the coatings we offer are suitable for a number of different applications including garages, patios, basements, steps, sidewalks and more! Our UV stable top coat will not yellow or fade in the sun.
Swisstrax tiles have an effective anti-slip ingredient mixed into the polypropylene which keeps them slip free when wet. Most of the competitors simply spray on an anti-slip mixture after production which gradually wears off, whereas Swisstrax has it mixed in during production, so it won't ever wear off.
Swisstrax is the Ferrari of modular flooring. We have the highest performing tiles, which hold much more psi than those of the competition. Swisstrax has an industry leading warranty, and superior locking system to the other brands.
The beauty of the garage floor tiles is no prep work required to the concrete. A light sweeping or blowing out of any dust and debris that may be on the floor is all that is needed. No grinding or acid etching required.
Not going to be in your home very long? No problem, simply unsnap the floor and take it with you to your new home, even if your design doesn’t fit your new garage you can order a few more and custom install it to fit any garage floor.
When properly installed the units are completely safe and secure. Our overhead storage racks are built to install on 4 trusses so that the weight is carried by more load-bearing members. In addition, there is a 2” safety lip around the edge of the platform to prevent storage items from being pushed off of the platform.
Since you have paid for every square foot of space in your home, it only make sense to use all of it. Overhead storage racks allow you to utilize space that is typically left empty, allowing you to use floor space more effectively.
While items are easily accessed with a ladder, its best to use these racks to store items that are used more infrequently, leaving lower spaces to store items that are used daily or weekly. We can provide storage racks for hanging your frequently used items so that they are readily accessible.
