Used Pallet Rack Wall Ties

Pallet rack wall ties are used to assist in stabilizing a row of racking adjacent to a wall. These wall ties can quickly and easily be added to your pallet racking system. Because a single row of racking is not connected to an adjacent row of rack, its stability is minimized. Keep in mind that although the industry term is “WALL TIE”, not every wall is rated for supporting the weight of a loaded row of racking. A minimum of two wall ties are suggested for every upright that is against a wall. Investing in pallet rack components will increase the strength, flexibility, impact resistance, and long life of your pallet rack.

About Pallet Rack Wall Ties

Pallet rack wall ties are essential structural components within warehouse storage systems, designed to enhance stability and safety by securing the uprights of pallet racks to walls or other stable structures. These ties play a crucial role in preventing potentially catastrophic incidents, such as rack collapse, toppling, or displacement due to heavy loads, lateral forces, seismic events, or accidental impacts. By effectively transferring forces to the wall, these ties ensure that the entire rack system remains securely anchored, safeguarding both workers and stored goods.

Pallet rack wall ties come in various types, including diagonal braces, horizontal crossbars, and wire mesh panels. Diagonal braces are instrumental in reinforcing rack stability for tall installations by diverting lateral pressures to the wall. Horizontal crossbars distribute forces across the rack system, reducing the risk of tilting and providing an additional layer of support. Wire mesh panels function not only as ties but also as debris containment barriers, enhancing both safety and organization. These ties are indispensable in seismic regions, preventing racks from collapsing during earthquakes, and can be tailored to fit different rack heights and wall distances. Their installation ensures efficient space utilization, mitigating the potential risks associated with improperly secured storage systems.

Pallet rack wall ties offer increased stability for any pallet rack that has a height of more than six times its depth by connecting the upright frame to the adjoining wall. Pallet rack wall ties can be used to support uprights when pallet racks are arranged in a row along the wall, and are easily connected with nuts and bolts.
