About AtticMaxx

The AtticMaxx™ Shelving System is a first-of-its-kind home organization product that turns empty, often wasted space between attic trusses into organized, accessible and stable storage. The shelves install in minutes and free up valuable living space and closets from clutter.  No more stacking and unstacking teetering towers of storage totes or crushed boxes!

The system consists of a series of shelving units specially designed for mounting between your existing attic trusses (see our FAQ “What is a truss?”). Each shelving unit includes a 22” x 22” wooden shelf, a pre-attached metal bracket and two pre-attached straps.

Also available is a shelf system for mounting on unfinished walls to utilize valuable vertical space in attics, garages, bonus rooms and outbuildings.   And for the handy and more ambitious DIY person, hardware kits are available [TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK] with instructions to build your own shelves.

The Creator

A father of four and a small business owner in North Carolina came up with the idea for the AtticMaxx shelving system because his wife is a devoted holiday decorator – “a decorating junkie,” he says.   His wife doesn’t refer to the timeframe of October through April as the “holiday season” – she calls that time of year “attic season” because they make so many trips up and down the attic stairs retrieving and returning holiday decorations for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter.

His wife was frustrated about the “teetering towers of storage totes” stacked to the attic ceiling on their very small amount of floor space.  She didn’t understand why her husband, a builder by trade, couldn’t just add more floor space for her boxes.   Additional attic floor space wasn’t a simple solution for them because their attic, like that of most housing developments, was built with a truss roofing system and blown-in insulation  — therefore, floor space couldn’t easily be added without crushing the insulation or taking on a sizable project.

The creator was challenged to come up with a simple and affordable storage system that could utilize the empty space beyond the current flooring.  He tried eight different prototypes and chose the current design because of its limited use of materials and easy installation for virtually any homeowner as a quick do-it-yourself project.

The Materials

The AtticMaxx Shelving System is a high-quality, engineer-tested product proudly manufactured in the USA.  Made of primarily wood and metal – the same materials used to build your home – the AtticMaxx Shelving System is designed to withstand the hot and cold temperatures of the attic, including the use of a special metal bracket to resist rust that may result from humidity.   See FAQs to learn more about the contents of an AtticMaxx Shelving System.
