Used Pallet Rack Supports

Pallet rack supports are a way to store pallets that are not deep enough to fit on standard frame depths. Improved racking support structures outfitted with proper pallet support bars are your number one line of defense against preventable and costly incidents. These supports help to boost employee safety and protect inventory from potential damage. Pallet supports provide a level storage area by resting on the step beams of selective pallet racking. These bars come in a variety of materials, and are an inexpensive alternative to wire decking. Two supports are required per pallet position, and are designed to sit between the rack beams on standard 48" deep upright frames. Pallet supports are a cost-effective safety measure for your warehouse racking system, workers, and inventory. These pallet supports also offer additional degree of confidence for forklift operators when loading pallets at deep and/or high heights. By choosing to add these supports to your racking system you’ll be protecting your investment from potential risks.

About Pallet Rack Supports

Pallet supports are a must-have if your racking is deeper than the pallets you plan to store. These rack supports have easy drop-in installation, helping to lessen installation cost and require minimal maintenance. Also known as cross bars, these supports create a level surface from beam to beam on which you can rest your pallets. This significantly increases safety by reducing the risk of rack failure or product damage. In addition, the flat surface makes it easier for forklift operators to load materials onto the warehouse rack.

Pallet rack supports are components that are used in pallet racking systems to provide support and stability to the pallets stored on the racks. They typically consist of a wire mesh or metal grid that is placed on top of the rack beams to create a level surface for the pallets to rest on.

The use of pallet rack supports provides a few substantial benefits, including increased safety and stability for the pallets and the ability to store a wider range of products, including items that might not otherwise be able to sit securely on the rack beams alone. Additionally, they can help prevent products from falling through the gaps between the rack beams, reducing the risk of damage or injury.

These are a cost-effective alternative to wire mesh decking while keeping your inventory in great condition. Pallet supports help to provide additional safety while keeping operations moving efficiently. At American Surplus Inc., we carry wood and metal pallet supports in a variety of widths.

To avoid damaged pallets or falling material, call ASI today at (800) 876-3736. One of our experienced rack technicians will ask about your storage needs to help you choose the rack supports that are right for you.

Advantages of Used Pallet Rack Supports

Pallet rack supports, also known as pallet rack decking, provide several advantages when used in a pallet racking system. Here are some of the key advantages:

  • Improved safety: Pallet rack supports create a solid surface for pallets to rest on, which reduces the risk of pallets tipping over or falling through the gaps between the rack beams. This can help prevent accidents and injuries in the workplace.
  • Increased stability: Pallet rack supports help to distribute the weight of the pallets more evenly across the rack beams, which helps to improve the stability of the pallet racking system. This can help prevent damage to the racks and the products stored on them.
  • Versatility: Pallet rack supports can be used to store a wider range of products, including smaller items that might not sit securely on the rack beams alone. This can help optimize storage capacity and increase the efficiency of warehouse operations.
  • Durability: Pallet rack supports are typically made from durable materials that can withstand heavy use over time. This can help to reduce maintenance costs and increase the lifespan of the pallet racking system.

Pallet rack supports are an important component of a safe and efficient pallet racking system, providing increased safety, stability, versatility, and durability.

Used Pallet Rack Supports Applications

Pallet rack supports, also known as pallet rack decking, are used in a variety of applications where pallet racking systems are used. Some common applications include:

  • Warehouses and distribution centers: Pallet rack supports are widely used in these facilities to store and organize pallets of inventory. They help optimize storage capacity and improve the efficiency of warehouse operations.
  • Manufacturing facilities: Pallet rack supports can be used in manufacturing facilities to store raw materials and finished goods. They help keep the manufacturing process organized and can improve productivity by making it easier to access materials and products.
  • Retail stores: Pallet rack supports can be used in retail stores to store and display merchandise, such as boxes of products, apparel, and other items. They help keep the store organized and make it easier for customers to find what they are looking for.
  • Food and beverage facilities: Pallet rack supports are commonly used in food and beverage facilities to store pallets of products, such as canned goods, bottles, and other packaged items. They help ensure the products are stored safely and securely, reducing the risk of damage or spoilage.
