People often look at buying pallet racks as a complicated process that can be time consuming and expensive, but buying from Advanced Handling & Storage is a very simple process. Our team of experts will guide you through all the aspects of design and installation or simply just supply.
The Purpose of Pallet Racks
Pallet racking whether it be a new pallet racking system or a used, second-hand pallet racking system, you have to understand what is the purpose of buying them. Racks are designed to store products. Pallet Racks are normally formed by steel beams and uprights and go several stories high depending of the height of the warehouse. Products are stored in a way that can be located, organized and picked efficiently. Pallet racking is designed in a way so that racks can be easily be picked up by forklift or lifting equipment.
Pallets rest on horizontal load beams that are held up by mounting clips. In?structural pallet rack systems, horizontal load beams are attached to uprights with bolts to provide more weight capacity. Atlantic Rack offers both roll formed and structural systems, we always recommend roll formed due to its easy installation.
Upright:?Vertical beams that form the walls of the pallet rack; holes or?slots?are designed to interface with the load beam.
Beams:?Horizontal beams that form the shelves of the pallet rack.
Pallet Supports:?Situated?between the load beams to support pallets.
Wire Deck:?these are a safety measure to prevent pallets or products on pallets from falling through the rack structure. Used for storing smaller products like boxes.
Footplates:?Also known as base-plates they are located at the base of columns and serve as anchors providing more stability for the pallet racking system.
Shims:?Are used when the uprights are going to be located on floors that might be uneven.
Row spacers: Are in most cases used when bays (uprights) are arranged in back-to-back rows.
Wall ties:?May are used for further support if the uprights are arranged in a row along a wall.
Column protectors:?These are protective shields that can be installed around the base of an upright to minimize damage in areas where forklifts might hit the upright.
Guard rails:?Are installed to increase protection where forklifts might hit the upright.
