A: Hello Joann. We have not recalled Versarac White Adjustable steel overhead garage storage rack. In case if you are facing any issues request you to kindly get in touch with our customer service team on 1-877-306-8930 option 1 and we will be more than happy to assist you further.
A: Hello Greg, please give us a call to check installation availability at 1-877-306-8930 option 2. Thank you for your questions and have a fantastic day!
A: The vertical supports can be shortened to raise the height by simply cutting them in the right location between holes. They system cannot be dropped lower without purchasing longer uprights or bolting on upright extensions.
A: Hello Dan, Thank you for your inquiry. VersaRac can be installed on wooden stud and not on TuffShed. If you need any assistance, please feel free to reach out to us on our customer service line at 1-877-306-8930 option 1 and we will be happy to assist you with any concerns.
A: If by TuffShed you mean one of the pre-fab wooden sheds sold by Home Depot, then yes, it would probably work, but, depending on the design and construction, I'm not sure that the VERSARAC would be able to hold anywhere near its 500+ pound rated capacity. I would suggest that, instead of the VERSARAC, you purchase a few pieces of 2" X 6" lumber, a 4' X 8' piece of 3/4" plywood (custom cut to fit), a box of 3" deck screws, and build a big shelf inside your shed instead. That way the load would be supported by the walls and not by the ceiling.
A: You can as long as you're willing to make any necessary mods. If your TuffShed walls are only 7' long, you'll have to reduce the length of this rack from 8' to 7'. If you meant that the walls are 7' high but long enough to fit it, then it's just a matter of deciding how high you want to hang it since it'll obviously be in the way for walking in if you hang it lower than your height. With an 8/12 pitched roof and I assume you mean there are no ceiling joists, then with the rack's 4' depth the front legs will need to be about 32" longer than the back legs to make it level. Since the legs allow a max hanging distance of about 40", you've got 8" to play with. So yes, it can be installed in your shed.
A: You can put it anywhere it will fit. Your shed seems a little small for this 4’x8’ rack.
A: Hello Shawn, Thank you for your inquiry. The VersaRac needs to be installed into your ceiling joists/wall beams (cannot be installed into engineered joists or steel beams). If your joist spacing is not 48", 72" or 96" apart than you need to span a joist hanger. If your ceiling is finished with drywall, installing a joist with joist hangers will require cutting a hole in the drywall. The VersaRac width can be adjusted from 72"W - 96"W and the height can be installed at 18"H or 27"H - 42"H. If you need any assistance, feel free to reach out to us on our customer service line at 1-877-306-8930 option 1 and we will be happy to assist you with any concerns.
A: I ran 5/16 x 3 in lag screws up through 1/2 drywall into 2x6 and loaded my racks heavy. They have been up for 3 years and no problems. You probably need to add additional 2x on top of the flat 2x where you are attaching to or run a bolt through from the top.
A: at least an inch if you want max weight of 600 lbs
A: No less than 3/4”. You should be mounting directly to the truss, which would have more than enough depth.
A: You do have 4 slots in each plate to anchor to the 2x4. So in that sense there should be enough "bite" in the wood ,BUT....the lag screws that came with the rack is not threaded at the last inch or so nearest to the head so for you this may be in an area where it's past your "bite" area. If you have access to the attic or crawl space , you could support the screw areas with another piece of 2x4 laying on top of the first 2x4. With this layout, I wouldn't store a heavy load more that 250 lbs.
