Q: Is there a standard practice/distance required for the levels of horizontal beams used on pallet racking? Or can these be in the situ at varying heights down to the user?s discretion? (Provided they are inspected etc.)
A: Adjustable pallet racking is just that, vary adjustable, however in each different configuration it will have a different carrying capacity! It is not possible therefore to place beams at the users? whim without consulting either the original supplier or a specialist rack inspector who might be able to calculate a new carrying capacity after adjustments to suit site requirements have been made.
Some time ago the military tried to simplify matters by declaring a 1000kg capacity per pair of beams for instance; however this is not strictly accurate as this capacity can change depending if it is used with a heavy duty upright or a light duty one.
Each case has to be considered individually depending on the duty of the upright and the distance from the floor to the beam. Crudely if you lift a beam further up the upright and leave a more slender upright section then the capacity of the upright will likely fall and if you lower the beam the capacity will likely increase slightly.
It is very complex and there is no simply was that the new capacity can be calculated on site. We recommend that you contact us giving details of the required new profile of the rack and they will calculate a new l0ad capacity for you and probably offer you a revised load notice to attach to the rack accordingly.
If you want to maximise your warehouse space through the use of second hand or new pallet racking, please don?t hesitate to get in touch with us on 0800 345 7088 or send an email email@example.com
