If getting your garage organized is on your to-do list, consider a heavy-duty system designed like the ones you see hanging on the walls at stores. The StoreWall system is designed to carry heavy tools and equipment, and the components can be rearranged to accommodate different size objects as the need arises.
The storage system is designed around galvanized metal strips attached vertically to the wall studs with fasteners. Panels fit into the strips horizontally, creating a grooved edge for attaching shelves, baskets and hooks, as well as other accessories.
