Product Information:

Includes three 24" straps (142673), three 55" straps (142674), three 10" brackets (142675), six 14" brackets (142676) and six 18" brackets (142677).

This lumber rack set has all the straps and brackets you need to efficiently store a variety of 8-foot lengths of lumber. The set includes: three 24" straps, three 55" straps, three 10" brackets, six 14" brackets and six 18" brackets. Set does not include mounting bolts. Straps are formed from 3/16" thick steel and coated with a rust protective coating and "keyed" adjustment holes, spaced 1-1/2" apart, to lock the brackets into the straps. The brackets are 3/16" thick coated steel, rolled to form an inverted "U" shape for strength. The 18" bracket will support a 300 lb. load at the tip. The shorter brackets will support even more weight because of their reduced distance from the wall. The straps should be anchored to the wall with heavy lag type bolts or expansion studs in concrete. The straps should also contact the floor or a spacer to transfer the weight of the rack from the wall to the floor. Straps should be placed no farther than 36" apart to properly support the weight of the lumber.

  • High load capacity system
  • Formed from 3/16" thick steel
  • Coated with a rust protective coating
  • Set contains three each 24" and 55" straps and 10" brackets, six each 14" and 18" brackets

    Comments about Lumber Rack Set :

    Have put a 20 foot ladder on top supports and will use the lower 4 levels for my wood storage. I used 5 3&1/2" long lag screws in each vertical section. I also placed a 1/2" x 3" x 5 foot plywood strip behind each vertical section both to clear my baseboard and to keep the relatively sharp edges of the supports from digging into my garage drywall under load. The assembled strength seems to be limited by the wall framing and the size and number of attaching screws. The designer and manufacturer should have recommended screw sizes and spacings with typical wall constru ctions and expected loading.

    This rack does the job of storing heavy lumber. It has a raw industrial finish and considering the price might disappoint.I put on a coat of paint and call it satisfacatory.

    Comments about Lumber Rack Set :

    I purchased 8 sets of straps (55" and 24") and 60+ brackets so my investment was quite high. In order for your hardwood to stay flat, care must be given to make sure each bracket is nested correctly into each strap. The poor craftsmanship of the manufacture makes this very difficult. I ran a string line for the top row with success, however each additional row was off as much as 5/16". I used a mallet to hit each bracket down to seat, but again the poor galvanizing made this almost impossible. I ended up filing each bracket until it fit. I would purchase again, only because I cannot find anything better, but that doesn't make this product great.

    Comments about Lumber Rack Set :

    My problem was that there was no storage shelving system that would carry the load. I wanted to fill the wall of my shed (I use it for a woodworking shop) with oak boards. Dried Oak weighs about 3.2 lbs./bdft. Assume 16' length, average width over 12" and stacked 7 feet high. The total weight is over 2 tons, about 4,500 lbs. The wall of my shed is made of 2 x 4 studs on 16" centers. I wasn't sure if the wall would take the load. So, I reinforced it by attached 2 x 3's flat onto each 2 x 4 using 4" deck screws. Two screws every 8 inches. To these, I mounted a 55" and a 24" strap to cover the height I wanted. These straps were applied to every other stud such that the separation between supports was 32". Note well; the original system I bought had drilled and counter sunk holes for #10 screws - two every 6". (apparently they discontinued this practice which I learned when I bought my second system.) Therefore, on my second system I had to drill and counter-sink those holes myself. For extreme loading I believe this mounting is critical (in addition to the 5/16" x 4.5" lag bolts used at either end of each strap.) I used #10 x 2.5" flat head metal screws in the two holes drilled and countersunk every six inches to mount the straps (in addition to the lag bolts). When I first opened the shipment and saw the components of this racking system, I was both thrilled and concerned as I knew that to take full advantage of this super heavy duty system, I should reinforce the wall. Having done that, I loaded the rack with oak boards. We're talking between 4,000 and 5,000 lbs of lumber. ...not even a whimper. This racking system is magnificent if you want it to carry very heavy loads. It does. My first system I've had for about 5 years. No sign of rust or corrosion of any kind. I just installed my second system this past winter. You might think that this shelving / rack system is expensive - not for what your getting. If you want a very solid heavy duty system - this is it. Just be sure you use adequate fastening proportional to the load you expect it to carry. And, of course, make sure the wall will take the load. My only complaint is that they discontinued supplying the "straps" with the pre-drilled and countersunk holes for #10 flathead scress. Very disappointing. Nevertheless, if you are handy enough, you can do this yourself. Make sure you use one of those multi-fluted high quality counter sink bits. A drill press here is almost a necessity. I wish they would return to supplying the uprights (straps) pre-drilled and countersunk every 6".

    I reduced by half the floor area tied up with lumber storage in my shop. As I use up materials, I hope to get it down to what is on the rack. This rack is as solid as the wall you lag it to.

    Ive been looking at cantelever racks and other storage racks, but this one caught my eye. The simple installation using lag screws took minutes to secure all the standards to the studs in the wall.Clip on the heavy duty brackets and its ready to use. And heavy duty is what this rack/storage system is all about. Its perfect for any home or professional shop. Can be expanded to fit anyone's needs.
