Abstract : A storage rack suitable for maintaining sheet material free of surface scratches, dents, dings, etc. caused by handling and moving. A rectangular frame as large as the largest sheet to be stored is suspended from an overhead monorail. A channel member forming the lower edge of the frame supports the sheets which lean against the frame and are held in place by diagonal straps. A plurality of parallel overhead rails each of which supports a single frame provide the storage area. The overhead rails are at least twice the overall length of the frames to allow a selected frame to be moved from its storage position into the open where a desired sheet may be removed or added and the frame pushed back to its stored position without chance of damage to the sheet.
