We offer a range of storage solutions to overcome storage problems in garage areas. Our over bonnet storage system is a fantastic solution for those once unusable areas. Our above car storage systems are placed at the head of a car space so the intended vehicle retains its usual park.
The unit is freestanding and very stable. It can be placed back-to-back or applied as a continuous application. The unit fits within the designated car area without affecting access to neighbouring vehicles. The leg and stand height are adjustable, so all floor levels and car sizes can be accommodated.
Our above bonnet storage unit is made from powder-coated aluminium for corrosion resistance. Our installers ensure that access to or operation of service and safety fittings or devices is not compromised. Storage is gained without losing valuable car space. The unit has a storage capacity of up to 4.4m3 and holds up to 800kg.
