Jonathan Roberts, President and CEO of UPPERcase, describes the benefit of his company’s invention by stating, “UPPERcase creates overhead storage that is easily accessible and then gifts precious floor space back to our customers for more meaningful purposes.”
A complete technical overview of the device is available on UPPERcase’s corporate website: http://uppercasestorage.com/technical.html.
Numerous designs and prototypes have been tested to assure the highest possible combination of practicality in everyday use and affordability for mass production. The current design is the fourth prototype and represents the final product in its ready for market form.
Although the current prototype is specifically designed for maximizing garage storage space, the applications of this technology are far reaching. The technology has practical applications for other residential uses such as allowing easier access to out of reach cabinets for the disabled.
Other applications for this technology are present in any environment in which storage space comes at a premium such as in airplanes and ships.
