      What this is Galvanized Heavy-Duty Shelving System, when I bought it they sold it at Home Despot. Since then rubber maid made them an exclusive offer to handle only their brand.
      Same brand as Lee Valley sells
      it is in Shelf Hardware > Heavy-Duty Shelving Systems

      I have used everything, but 40" Hang Track


      One wall floor to ceiling 24 feet long has the racks screwed to the wall stud with 3 " heavy duty screws the tracks are 1" high and 5/8" wallboard. Gives me around 2" of screw bite. I have the shelf racks on every wall studs. The only problem was were I had two brackets holding up the shorts in the center section of the photo below. I did over load it and used a thin plywood shelf so it bowed slightly, but didn't fall I welded two sections of rack together, so it can be free standing for the sheet metal storage.


      If you have a local wood craft store they also sell them

      The wire grilles in the first photo, are the old style grilles covering 8 Foot fluorescent fixtures

        Looks like you have 5 lbs in a 3 lbs sack!
        Wish you would come and work on my shop for a couple weeks.
