Two. We offer a standard stationary option and a motorized one.
How much weight do the overhead racks hold?
Standard racks can hold 750 lbs when free-standing and 1,000 lbs when one side is mounted to a wall. Motorized racks can hold 350 lbs.
What items are best stored on overhead racks?
Items that you won’t use as frequently, such as as winter gear, camping equipment or holiday decorations are perfect for overhead storage. They’re out of the way for most of the year, but easily accessible when you need them.
What are the differences between motorized overhead racks and normal racks?
Motorized racks move up and down, making access much easier, especially for people who may have a hard time climbing or reaching up high. Standard racks can only be accessed by a ladder, but they hold significantly more weight.
How the motorized overhead racks work?
The rack itself is attached to a pulley system and four independant motors, which raise and lower the rack. The system is controlled by a phone app.
What are the overhead storage racks made out of?
Like the Monkey Bar shelving, overhead racks are made with thick powder-coated steel.
How long does a floor installation take?
We offer two types of floor coatings, which can be installed in one or two days. Floor tiles only require a few hours.
Does everything have to be out of the garage during the floor installation?
Yes, we need the interior cleared prior to installation.
What is the difference between polyurea coatings and epoxy coatings?
Epoxy coatings protect the base concrete. It’s extremely durable, but all epoxy will eventually fade and yellow if it’s exposed to direct sunlight over time. Polyurea coatings are much more durable and long-lasting than epoxy. This type of coating is resistant to damage from the sun, and won’t fade over time. It’s resistant to most liquids, including water and oil, and is much more environmentally friendly.
When can I start using my new floor?
Generally, everything is finished within 1-2 days. Our polyurea coatings can be used the day after installation, due to their fast-drying properties.
Is the floor covering slippery?
Garage floor tiles are made with a mix of plastic and rubber compounds, making it very safe when wet. The floor coatings are impervious to liquids, and therefore can be slippery at times. We add a layer of chips to give the coating more texture. This helps combat the slipperiness, but we can also add a special anti-slip product to the topcoat if you wish for an extra charge.
How do I clean my new floor?
Our coatings are resistant to liquids, so water, oil and most chemicals can be easily wiped away when spilt. Dirt and debris can be swept up with a bristle broom, mop or light pressure wash.
Are the resins used harmful to me or the environment?
No. Although some epoxy kits can emit harmful byproducts, our polyurea coatings have a high solids content, which means there are fewer solvents and VOCs.
Does the floor scratch?
No, our coatings are resistant to damage after they fully cure.
Does the flooring leave a smell?
Does flooring come with a warranty?
Yes. Our polyaspartic floors have a limited 10 year warranty.
