What are the advantages of Monkey Bars shelving organization systems vs. DIY garage shelving? Can Do-It-Yourself match the strength and versatility of Monkey Bars? In this example, a do-it-yourself garage system was put together. After 4+ hours of planning, multiple trips to a big box store to purchase materials, and an entire day spent on installation, the shelving and rack system was finally completed. The result used 36 feet of wall space and cost $1200.
How does the DIY shelving compare with Monkey Bars shelving?
To store the same amount of items used in the above garage scenario, Monkey Bars used only 12 feet of wall space. In addition to fewer shelves and racks, the cost was under $1000, it was professionally installed in 3 to 4 hours and it came with a lifetime warranty.
You might be asking yourself how the Monkey Bars System can use 2/3 less wall space. Two reasons: weight capacity, and adjustable bars and hooks. The MB’s rack and shelving system organizes more efficiently, with a weight capacity of 1000 lbs per four-foot section. This allows for the stacking of items; normal shelves would sag or break. With the Monkey Bars adjustable system, the bars can be layered at varying distances under the shelves which allows for incredible organizational flexibility and the most efficient use of space.
