FAQ's

Easy Instillation? 

Are your products really easy-installation? - Creating a system that was easy to install was a major priority of ours when developing our brand. To accomplish this goal, we needed to create a new style of mounting and installation. When we were finished we had a low-profileeasy-to-install, and incredibly strong mounting system that also allowed our products to be interchangeable and adjustable. Allow of our wall-mounted racks and shelves use the same Mounting Bar System and installation method so if you need to rearrange your home you can easily switch from a Skateboard Rack to a Floating Shelf or a Rackcycle Bike Shelf with ease.

The Details: Our Mounting Bar System makes use of a uniform hook that is designed into all of our wall-mounted racks and shelves. The beauty of our installation system is that instead of holding and installing the entire rack at one time, you just need to put up the bar and you are already almost finished. Our products come with all necessary hardware for installation into a studded drywall or plaster wall. You will only need a screwdriver (electric preferred) and a level (which can be manual or done via phone app.).


Refer to our installation page for our complete yet still extremely simple instructions.


I’m concerned about care of my boards and my home.  How are the wall racks designed to protect my boards, equipment, and the wall? There are a few factors that make our racks ideal for safe and organized storage of your equipment. Our racks are sleek, low-profile, and minimally invasive. Our cradles have been designed to be strong while angling your equipment in a visible and space efficient way. Our cradle arms are angled and space to keep your stuff from touching and our padding protects larger boards from pressure spots. Most board, bike, and ski damage comes from neglect during storage. This could be storing them where they shouldn’t be or in cluttered areas where they are likely to be knocked over or have things knocked into them.

Regarding our racks affecting your home, our mounting system is very minimally invasive. When our racks are installed directly into studs, your walls will only see 2 or 3 tiny screw holes that can be easily puttied and painted if the product is removed. Our products are also designed to distribute the weight of your equipment over large areas and back padding reduces chances of pressure spots on your wall.


Are your wall racks really interchangeable? Yea. Don’t believe us? Buy a bunch and try it out!

PRODUCT QUESTIONS


How are your wall racks so strong?  Our products are made from an uber strong 3-ply bamboo plywood. Bamboo by itself is naturally strong but our plywood is stronger. The grain of the outer and inner plies runs perpendicular to each other, making our plywood strong in multiple directions.


I love my new wall rack.  Can I share pictures with Grassracks and my friends on social media? By all means, please do. We love to see how and where our products end up so feel free to send us photos, before/after shots, clips of the installation, etc. We want it all. If you want to show off your new wall adornment, make sure to tag us @grassracks and use hashtag #grassracks so we can check it out!


Where are your wall racks manufactured?  United State of America.


Your furniture claims to be “hardware free”. What does this mean? Means there ain’t no darn hardware on it. We’ve designed our furniture pieces to be put together like a puzzle so there is no hardware required for assembly. If you look at most furniture, many time there are structural nails, bolts, or screws throughout the piece but we used our ingenuity and creativity to make furniture that uses only the natural strength of the bamboo and different opposing forces to stay together and solid.

Can I use Grassracks outdoors? Official Answer: No, our racks are designed for indoor use in places with a constant room temperature and low humidity. Unofficial Answer: You can use our stuff outdoors but it requires a hefty marine varnish, Spar Urethane, or equivalent and needs to be reapplied annually. Like most outdoor ‘wood’ products, you should maintain the finish yearly. Things like water/moisture, humidity, extreme temperatures, and sunlight will greatly affect the condition, texture, and color of the product. So, keep it inside but if you really must put it outdoors, take care it. (Note: Outdoor use voids our product warranty.)
