Industrial pallet racking is a material handling storage aid system designed to store materials on pallets (or “skids”). Although there are many varieties of pallet rack, all types allow for the storage of palletized materials in horizontal rows with multiple levels. All types of pallet rack create some level of increase storage density with the least dense being the least expensive and cost increasing with storage denisity. Selective rack is the least dense with gravity flow pallet rack being the more expensive option.
Forklift trucks are usually an integral part of any pallet rack system as they are usually required to place the loaded pallets onto the racks for storage. Pallet racks are an essential and ubiquitous element in most modern warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and retail centers.
Roll Form Pallet Racked
There are two basic types of industrial (steel) racking – roll formed and structural steel. Up until comparatively recently, most rack was of the roll formed variety
Our roll formed racking is recognized throughout the industry for it’s quality, stability, and dependability. We use high quality steel and state of the art manufacturing technology, and all of our selective rack undergoes stringent quality control. We also finish all of our roll formed racking with a powder coat paint finish that is more durable and chip resistant than standard paint finishes.
Structural Pallet Rack
For applications involving one or more of the following conditions, structural steel may be the best choice. For example, very tall selective rack structures ( eg. 25′ or higher ) and high traffic / damage-prone environments. This is typical in some of the larger grocery distribution warehouses.
