Pallet racking is the best storage solution for industrial applications and warehouse. Pallet rack provide sufficient storage durability and reliability for pallets and skids containing materials and inventory stock. With the right decking it can also safely accommodate and store loose items.
Pallet Rack is a material handling storage solutions designed to store materials on pallets (also known as skids), typically within a warehouse setting. There are many varieties of pallet racking, which all have horizontal rows with multiple shelf levels. Different systems of pallet racks include: drive-in, drive-thru, flow, and push-back and the regular old pallet rack you see in so many warehouses and even Home Depot and Lowes.
Drive In Pallet Racks load and retrieve from the same side, creating last-in-first-out (LIFO) inventory organization. Drive-Thru pallet rack systems load from one side and unload from the other side to create first-in-first-out (FIFO) inventory retrieval with forklifts.
Pallet Flow Pallet Rack Systems use gravity to move pallets on smooth rolling metal skate wheels on sloped rails. Push-back pallet racks use a dynamic rail system, in which deeper pallet loads automatically advance to the aisle, when the front pallet load is retrieved. Push-back pallet rack systems offer similar storage density as drive-in pallet rack, while improving selectivity and accessibility.

Step Load Beams:
Beam length is traditionally measured by the clear span between the uprights, and beam capacities are based on an evenly distributed load. Two beams are necessary in order to create a shelf.
Improved Upright and Beam Designs are almost all interchangeable with almost all manufactures and brands of pallet racks.
Uprights can be shipped assembled or unassembled (upon request)

Begin by standing the uprights by the width of the beams. If the rack is up against a wall make sure there is adequate distance behind the rack for the pallets to fit without hitting the wall. Lift a beam to the hight you need for your product with good clearance and insert the rivet into the teardrop hole of the upright. Use a rubber mallet to tap the beam firmly into the keyholes. Repeat until you have all the beams in place. Uprights should be bolted to the ground. in many areas they need to be installed per specifications listed stamped engineer drawings. This can require specific length, diameter and grade anchors you will find in the calculations In some cases a building permit will also be required. If you have any questions on this please phone us at 866-328-5066 for information for your area and project. This is just to give you an idea of the process. Pallet Rack should be installed by a professional trained in the installation of rack and all local code requirements for things like hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes or other mother nature or man made disturbances.
A common question about pallet rack is which pallet racks beam is right for your application. For standard racking 8 foot beams are great and you will get 2 pallets on a shelf. If you to go to a 12' beam you can get 3 pallets on a shelf. We also carry 9, 10, 12, and 14' beam for various applications. One thing to remember is the length of the beam starts inside the bracket that attaches to the upright so the overall is a bit longer. It does not include the clip at the end. The safest way is to measure the distance between your upright. That will ensure that you get the correct length on the beam that you order.
Each beam has a "step". The step allows for 2 x 4's or decking to sit down in the step so the deck is flush with the beam. This allows you to slide pallets or your inventory on and off without getting snagged.
How do you know what is the right capacity being for your application? 1st thing to remember is that the longer the beam gets the more likely it is to deflect or sag when you load it up. Evenly distribute the weight load across the length of the beam. Generally the thicker the beam the greater the capacity. The profile which is the face of the beam is where you can see the thickness. Beams range from capacities if about capacity 5047 pound capacity we have been that go all the way up to 11000 pounds and beans with latest 2500 pounds then you know what you need For assistance please call one of sales professionals and we will help you figure it out. Save yourself a surprise. Use a professional!

Installing Pallet Rack:
Pallet Rack should be installed by a professional installation company skilled in the install of pallet rack. Like so many products it seems simple on the surface but everyone who uses it relies on the proper installation. In traffic areas with many transactions and staff moving around it and product moving on and off with for trucks, pallet jacks and other equipment it needs to be be stable in all situations. Plus local building codes need to be enforced to make it sake for your staff and others entering your work areas where the rack is installed and used. OSHA has many safety requirements that update and need to be checked when installing pallet rack. Some include anyone working more than four feet off the ground need fall protection. installers many also need gloves and hart hats. Due to the weight some uprights and beams may need a group lift or mechanical way to move the rack into place. Pallet Rack should be installed square and plumb. A 1/8 inch vertical variance is acceptable per four feet of rack. Square each section and check with a level. Anchoring has become very specific from area to area to comply with code. It is getting very difficult to get used rack to conform with local building codes upon installation and can cause great frustration when someone has purchased used rack to save some money then found out they need to scrap or resell it and purchase new rack to meet current building and earthquakes codes.
The History of Pallet Rack:
If you ever saw the movie Michale with John Travolta he had a great line. Something to the effect that he invented lines, before that people were just milling around. Funny! Pallet Rack was kind of the same way. From the earliest of times people were making shelves to store what they could put up by hand but heavy items just kept sprawling around taking up floor space and getting in the way. Wood was easily available to make pallets to set heavy and bulk packaged inventory and supplies on to keep them off the floor and safe from flooding and other natural events that could rust or ruin products. But before pallet rack things were just laying around taking up space!
In 1914 corrugated packaging came on the scene to help with packaging bulk items for storage.
Building more space has always been expensive and difficult. Plus you need to heat it and take care of it. Time spent away from the core business that allowed people to make their living. Then came equipment to lift these heavy items and allowed for a heavier shelf, Pallet Rack, to emerge. Forklifts were developed by several companies out of the crane concept around 1915. Once they hit the market the race was on to develop a rack to set the heavier or bulk boxes on to clean up floor space. It was really a perfect storm as Andrew Carnegie was bringing quality and well priced steel to the market which allowed so may products to develop and emerge. As time went by standards evolved for the wood pallet and forklift to work together which allowed for more standards in building pallet rack to house the pallets and allows for easy loading and unloading.
Over time Pallet Rack has evolved into two major types. Structural Rack and Selective Rack also called Roll Formed Rack. Selective and roll formed is very common in warehouses and the major difference is selective rack generally is also the "skin" for new construction allowing a lower cost construction for a warehouse that will be filled with rack as it can significant lower the construction costs associated with the skin or walls. Even in todays world of heavy automation rack has stood the test of time and is still the mostly widely used from of storage in a warehouse.
Step beams are common since they allow the wood or steel decking to fit in to hold pallets or whatever is stored on the rack.
As different forklifts have evolved and space becomes more important than ever very narrow aisle rack VNA where the rack is set very close together to maximize space for storage is becoming more common. In most cases it works with automated pickers so no human error can occur in the narrow aisles.

The Future of Pallet Rack
There seems no end to the future of Pallet Rack for storage in business. As e commerce and the world wide economy grows the need for massive and dense storage to get stronger and stronger. Robotic retrieve of goods is being built around pallet rack as the central storage product. The robot puts the product away and retrieves it but it is still stored on the rack. Rack is getting more specific to accommodate taller and taller applications. there are many DYI uses for used pallets associated with the use of pallet rack and these are great ways for all of us to participate in keeping all those pallet out of landfills.

Information to help you pick the best rack.
Pallet rack can all look just about the same. You've rolled down the lanes at home depot and if you are on this page have likely seen rack and used rack. So what makes it different? The best thing to do is call in and talk to a representative who can assess your requirements and suggest the best rack to you for your application.
But here are a few ideas for you to give you idea of why a rack salesperson be be of value to you and make you life much much easier! Say the column in rack you are considering are all 3 inches. Well total strength can be determined by many factors. The amount of braces can help strengthen rack. The type of steel is a big factor in determining strength. Some steel is stronger than others. How good are the welds? Some use a closed tube design but most leave a seam which is perfectly fine in most situations and can save you money. You can combine these so any one attribute combined with another can make one or the other superior in load bearing capacities. The closed tube designs can give you up to 250% more frontal impact strength and 68 percent greater side impact resistance than open back styles.
Roll formed rack is made from cold rolled steel and structural rack is made from hot rolled steel. It is exactly as it sounds. One is bent cold the other is done while the steel is red hot. Hot rolled is stronger. Cold rolled rack can be lighter which is important for install costs and shipping. Cold roll is generally rated to about 7,000 pounds and hot rolled structural rack can handle upwards of 30,000. pounds. Quite a difference but will you need to pay for that? Often the answer is no. Quite often in fact. But your application could make the hot worth it for life and safety.
Ease of assembly can also be a factor, and more and more of a factor these days.
