Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What kind of warranty do the shelves have?
We offer a lifetime warranty for the shelving, which covers any manufacturer defects, installation, and a load capacity of up to 1,000 lbs per 4 feet.
What material is the shelving system made of?
All shelving systems we offer are built with industrial-grade steel.
What additions can be made to the shelving?
Our shelving, Monkey Bars Shelves, are designed to hold a huge variety of hooks, bars or accessories. We have everything from ball bags to bike racks.
What is the weight capacity of shelving?
They can hold up to 1,000 pounds per 4 foot section of shelving.
What are the garage cabinets made of?
We use a thermal-fused laminate for our cabinets, and everything is held together with sturdy wooden dowels and screws. Cabinets come in a variety of colors, designs or wood patterns. This melamine material won’t warp over time, and are resistant to moisture.
Why are the garage cabinets mounted up off the floor?
Cabinets are mounted off the ground to better protect them from water damage.
Do you provide custom sizes or dimensions for cabinetry?
Cabinets are all built-to-order. Sizes and configurations are all custom to fit your needs and space.
What types of overhead racks do you carry?
We carry a motorizing option and a stationary option that can be installed in a couple of ways.
How much weight do the overhead racks hold?
Our stationary racks are rated to hold up to 1,000 pounds when mounted to a wall, and 750 pounds when hanging free from the ceiling. Our motorized racks can hold 350 pounds.
What items are best stored on overhead racks?
A good rule of thumb is most items you would normally keep in a storage unit are perfect candidates for overhead garage storage.
What are the differences between motorized overhead racks and normal racks?
There are a couple of differences between the two types of racks. Stationary racks hold more weight, but you usually need a ladder to get to them. Motorized racks move up and down for easier access.
How the motorized overhead racks work?
These racks use a pulley system to raise and lower the metal frame. You control the rack by using a phone app.
What are the overhead storage racks made out of?
These overhead racks are made with a sturdy, strong steel frame.
How long does a floor installation take?
Everything depends on the size of the garage, but typically Swisstrax floor tiles only require a couple of hours to install. There are both one and two day flooring options.
Does everything have to be out of the garage during the floor installation?
Yes. The process is much smoother and quicker when the space is already empty.
What is the difference between polyurea coatings and epoxy coatings?
We offer a special epoxy coating that is specifically formulated to be highly durable and protect the concrete floor. It is effective at it’s job, although all epoxy flooring will inevitably fade and yellow if exposed to direct sunlight. Heat can also cause it to become slightly sticky. Polyurea is more stable and will last much longer than epoxy. Polyurea coatings are resistant to damage, like the epoxy, but also withstand chemicals and UV rays. They don’t fade or yellow, are impervious to most liquids.
When can I start using my new floor?
Flooring up to 800 sq ft is a one day process. Over 800 feet is usually two days.
Is the floor covering slippery?
Swisstrax floor tiles are made with a combination of rubber and plastic, so they are not slippery when wet. Floor coatings are resistant to moisture, so they can get slick when wet. We added a layer of chips to the coatings to provide more texture, which helps with that. If this is a specific concern, however, we can also add a special anti-slip product to the topcoat for an extra charge.
How do I clean my new floor?
Bristle brooms, mops, or a light power wash are all effective. Coatings are impervious to oil and most chemicals, so spills can simply be wiped up without staining.
Are the resins used harmful to me or the environment?
Not at all. Unlike some cheaper kits, we use a formula that has a high solids content, which has fewer solvents and releases less VOCs into the air.
Does the floor scratch?
No. All of our flooring systems are highly resistant to damage.
Does the flooring leave a smell?
Do you offer a warranty on flooring?
The polyurea flooring has a lifetime “adhesion” warranty. Swisstrax are warrantied for 10 years.
