    Installing clothes rack from angled ceiling


    I want to install a new clothing rack in a bedroom which will hang from the slanted roof side of the room.
    At the lowest point is about 1 metre from the floor and about 2 metres at the highest point, the angle is roughly 45 degrees too – so it seems an ideal size for a rack.
    I am planning on having joins that hold the rail every half metre or so, to distribute the weight - the length of the rail will be around 2 metres long.
    Are there any reinforcements for the weight or other adjustments I might need to install the clothing rail on my slanted roof?

    "Its difficult to tell without seeing the space but you will need to cut the rail at the same angle as the roof for a better, more secure fixing. Depending on the size of the rail, inserting a solid length of bar inside the rail should strengthen it a lot more than the standard rail. Hope this helps.

    "You say roof, so i have to assume you are talking about an attic, in which case simply secure it to the visible timber frame in the roof.

    If in fact you meant a ceiling then it will depend how old your building is and what it is made from. you can have maybe a concrete, plasterboard or wooden ceiling, if it is plasterboard you will need to locate the frame support behind the plasterboard to secure fixings."
