The rails come in two sizes 48-inch and 84-inch. Each of the garage storage racks and baskets will probably need a couple of inches of clearance to each side of the length listed in the products description, where as garage cabinets and shelves can butt up right against the next one. The trick comes in with some of the specially sports racks, particularly the bike racks and golf bag rack. These garage storage racks are smaller than the space that the items they store are. The Horizontal bike rack needs enough space to span a bike, but if it is put at the edge of the FastTrack it will take up less of the rail space. The vertical bike may block the a lower rail, this can be taken care of by offsetting the rails by one stud and hanging the bike at the end. Finally the golf bag rack is going to be almost as wide as the rack and two golf bags, since they hang off the sides. If you keep all of these considerations in mind, your Rubbermaid FastTrack Garage Organization Systems will exceed all of your needs as the perfect storage for garage organization!
Most people use a combination of these ideas. They may start with knowing the maximum length of rail they can accommodate and then par it down if they determine that the accessories they have selected will not fill all of the rails.
Lighting: With the garage now being used for a variety of different reasons it is more important than ever to ensure that everything is well lit. To create the perfect lighting introduce strong LED spotlights across the whole of the garage. Not only do these create excellent light but they are also extremely efficient. If you have specific work areas consider lighting these separately, for example with under-cabinet lights.
In contrast to an overhead type of garage door, be it sectional or single panel, roll up doors have a totally different type of operating system. When these doors are used, they can be concealed in an overhead or under mounted trough. These doors operate similarly to a roll top desk door except for how they are stored when not in the closed position. They normally coil as they are retracted, and require significant gear trains to reduce the effort required to move these doors up and down into position. Often the forces needed to move these roll up doors require a reduction type of transmission that allows a very heavy door to be operated effortlessly. These doors can be chain driven either manually, or can be automated using electric motors. Roll up doors require more frequent evaluation and servicing than a standard overhead garage door. The tracks that are mounted vertically on both sides of the garage opening need maintenance and cleaning more frequently, and are often blocked by foreign obstructions or damaged by collision of some type. These roll up doors are often held open by some type of ratcheting action. Proper balancing of these doors is often more important than an overhead type of door, as the weight of these type of doors is normally much greater than an overhead door.
