Benton Harbor, Michigan -- Rack shelving may be the most practical storage solution out there, with uses from the garage to the basement to the pantry. Significant enhancements to this classic storage option were recently made by Gladiator GarageWorks with its new EZ Connect Racks. Thanks to this innovative new line, their rack shelving has never before been so easy to assemble and is perfect to help enable your passions, whether it be camping, football or gardening.

The new line has three rack shelving models of varying sizes for different spaces and needs. All three racks feature a patented click-and-lock system, meaning no tools - or headaches - are required for assembly. The three models include a 36"x18" EZ Connect Rack ($79.99 MSRP), a 48"x 18" EZ Connect Rack ($89.99 MSRP) and a 48"x 24" EZ Connect Rack ($99.99 MSRP). All three models are 72 inches tall and come with five adjustable shelves.

"When you think 'how could you improve on a rack shelf?', it isn't easy. We wanted to improve the assembly process yet still offer the robust products the Gladiator brand is known for," said Allison Gillespie, Brand Manager for Gladiator. "Nobody wants to spend a long time putting together shelving units. Instead, the unique system of the EZ Connect Racks simplifies the process in a smart way - just click, lock and load!"

The racks, aptly named from the click-and-lock system, have easy-to-clean, laminate shelves so wet or muddy belongings, like kids' sports gear, coolers or lawn equipment, won't damage or ruin them and are NSF Certified for food storage. The shelves of the new racks are also rated to hold up to 1,000 lbs and durable enough to hold heavy and bulky items, such as luggage and musical equipment - and unlike traditional wire rack shelves, the solid shelving keeps smaller items such as fasteners and tools from slipping through to the floor.

The EZ Connect Rack line comes in the brand's popular hammered granite finish, which is perfect for the garage as well as other areas of the home. The 36" Wide EZ Connect Rack and two 48" Wide EZ Connect Racks are available now.
