garage overhead storage

hdclownJanuary 14, 2009

I'm looking to do some overhead storage in my garage. There seem to be 3 major companies, OnRax, MonsterRax, and HyLoft.

HyLoft has the least expensive product, but something about them just seems "flimsy" to me compared to MonsterRax and OnRax type systems, which are nearly identical in design.

I found a few old posts where folks use HyLoft, so my concerns may be unwarranted, but they don't look as friendly and durable as the other options.

OnRax is running a pretty good online sale right now which makes them much more attractively priced, so I am leaning towards those. Wondering if anyone has any experience with OnRax products.

I built a 8'x16' platform from 2x6 joists and suspended it from trusses with metal straps. Covered it with four 3/4" plywood sheets. The whole thing hangs above the two garage doors so it adds a lot of useable storage space at low cost.
