About Structural Pallet Rack
Structural pallet rack is a type of storage system that is designed to support heavy loads and withstand harsh environments. It is made of solid steel components, including columns, beams, and braces, that are bolted or welded together to form a rigid structure.
The upright columns are typically made of square or rectangular steel tubing, while the beams are made of steel channels or tubes. The beams are connected to the columns using bolts or welding, and they can be adjusted to different heights to accommodate different load sizes.
Structural pallet rack is ideal for storing heavy materials and can be customized to meet specific storage needs of a warehouse. It is often used in industrial settings, such as warehouses and distribution centers, to store large quantities of products.
Compared to other types of pallet rack systems, structural pallet rack is known for its durability, stability, and resistance to damage from forklifts and other handling equipment. It is also more resistant to seismic activity and can withstand harsh environments, making it a popular choice for heavy-duty storage needs.
Structural pallet racks are for the most part usually used for push-back rack, pallet flow rack, drop pallet rack, and drive-in rack systems. These racking systems are built to withstand forklift impacts lessening potential damage on heavier loads. With high weight capacities and increased durability these pallet racks can be used in harsher conditions. Structural rack is the strongest type of pallet racking in the warehouse industry. Bolts tightly secure load beams to their uprights, giving structural pallet rack much higher weight capacities than clips. Shelf heights on this style of racking can be adjusted, and it provides access to 100% of the stored items at any given time.
Structural pallet rack is made of hot rolled channel steel, with uprights that are typically 3 or 4 inches thick. The uprights have bolt holes typically every 4 inches, but some are punched at 2-inch increments to allow for more vertical adjust-ability. Beams are either C-channel or formed step beams, which are connected to the frames using 5-gauge steel plates.
