The building were I live has an extra storage area were every
resident gets a wire-mesh cage. Mine is 3' x 3' x 10', and I need
every cubic inch in it (my apartment is tiny). I'm trying to
maximize the *useful*
storage space I get out of this cage. (Of
course, I could do what most residents do and just pile everything
in the storage cage, but that's not useful to me; I want to be able
to access the stuff I store now and then; otherwise, I'd just as
soon throw it away.)
Three of the four walls of my cage are made of a flat expanded wire
mesh (like the one shown at http://tinyurl.com/arsw2 ); the
diamond-shaped openings in the mesh are about 3" in the long
dimension and 1-1/4" in the short one. The remaining wall of the
cage is made of concrete (basically, these cages are built against
the building's wall). I have already installed heavy-duty shelves
against the concrete wall, and they help a lot, but I still have
of unused volume in that cage.
Opposite to the concrete wall is the door to the cage, also made
of the same wire mesh. I want to hang some shelves off the inside
of this door, for extra light-weight storage. The only significant
requirement I have for these shelves is that it shouldn't be easy
to knock one of them down from the outside of the cage (e.g. by
accidentally bumping against some hook).
I figure that this is a sufficiently common need that there may
already be some standard solution on the market. Does anyone know
of a system to do what I want to do?
Many thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions.
