A: I think you can but you will have some limitation, mine were 16 so I have a 32 inch span between the two , you can only do a 19" not sure about teh stability.
A: If your studs are ~20" apart, 3 studs would be 40" apart. Since the unit is about 45" wide, you should be able to mount the unit on the first and third studs. There will be a slight overhang of the wire mesh at each end, but that is ok.
A: Don’t they make racks that are smaller in D, like the size of a storage bin ,one cooler 24”Dx40”Hx 48”W. I just want to have it only one length wide. I want to see everything Without it being behind something else ! ! ! Help
A: Yes, the assembly manual for the Suncast MCS4545 ceiling storage unit explains the installation for joists that are 16 or 24 inches apart. You can review this manual at the Home Depot web site for this model in the Info & Guides box next to Product Overview. The ceiling storage must be installed into studs. If drywall is present, you must use a stud finder to locate the studs and then drill into the studs. If not installed into studs, the unit will not support weight. The spacing for your joists should be either 16 inches or 24 inches apart. The vertical distance for this shelf is adjustable from 16.5 inches to 27 inches deep. Thank you for your question, RT, and your interest in Suncast products.
A: Not really, I mean you have to work within the bounds of the ceiling joist, if they are 16 inches apart then you are limited to that, the caged rack is also your limitation. For the other side where the joist are are going linearly you don't have a choice, teh lower pice is a single piece you can not reduce the size or increase it.
A: The length of the wire mesh is about 45". The uprights have to be mounted to studs that have a total spacing somewhat less than that. Some overhang of the wire shelf is expected at each end. Why this unit doesn't accommodate 48" spacing is a mystery to me.
