There are two ways that I've done it.
The first is to pop rivet the racks to the metal wall - if the wall is strong. Some metal walls are rather thin. In that case, method #2 is the only way to go.
The second is to screw (or bolt) 2 2x4 uprights to the wall about 18" apart (screwed or bolted through the metal wall into the wood - be sure to use large washers on the screws or bolts); secure a 1/2' plywood board to the 2x4s and bolt the rack to the plywood. I also paint all the wood to match the wall to give it a finished look. The preferred method is to use bolts instead of screws because they are considerably stronger.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
