In summary, some advantages of choosing structural pallet racking are:

Advantages of Structural Racking

Improved Durability

Structural pallet rack is made of solid steel and is designed to withstand heavy loads and harsh environments. It is more resistant to damage from forklifts, pallets, and other handling equipment than other rack types.

Stability & Safety

The welded connections of structural pallet rack create a rigid structure that provides increased stability and safety. The structural design allows for higher load capacities and greater resistance to seismic activity with the addition of seismic footplates as a structural pallet rack accessory.

Flexible, Customizable Design

Structural pallet rack can be designed to meet specific storage needs, including different beam lengths and depths, column heights, and load capacities. Our warehouse design team can help you build the right system for your needs, complete with complimentary CAD drawings, layouts, and renderings included with your quote.


Structural pallet rack can be used in a wide range of applications including warehouses, distribution centers, and manufacturing facilities. Their long lasting, durable design is capable of standing up to harsh environments.

Corrosion Resistance & Longevity

Structural pallet rack is coated with a rust-resistant finish that protects it from corrosion and increases its lifespan. Combined with its improved structural durability, it's designed to last for many years, making it a wise cost-saving investment in the long term.

Ease Of Maintenance

With no moving parts and improved durability against forklift impacts, structural racking requires limited maintenance and repairs over its long service life.

Compatible With High Traffic Areas

High forklift traffic in your warehouse leaves your racking vulnerable to damage. Structural racking's improved design is more resistant to critical failures compared other styles of pallet rack or shelving, making it a great choice for a high traffic facility in need of selective racking.

Applications of Boltless Shelving

Industrial Storage

Structural pallet rack is commonly used in industrial settings to store heavy materials such as steel bars, automotive parts, and heavy machinery.

Food & Beverage Storage

The durability and resistance to moisture and corrosion make structural pallet rack ideal for storing food and beverage products.

Retail Wholesalers

Retailers use structural pallet racks to store large quantities of merchandise in their warehouses before they are sent to stores for display. Big box retailers may choose structural rack as well to support their rapidly changing inventory.

Distribution Centers

Structural pallet rack is often used in distribution centers to store large quantities of goods awaiting shipment.

Cold Storage

Structural pallet rack is used in cold storage facilities to store frozen and refrigerated goods.

What To Consider Before Buying Used Structural Pallet Racking

What Type Of Storage Do You Need?

Before investing in your structural racking system, you should carefully consider the following:

  • Available Footprint & Location: Assess your facility's dimensions including wall heights, available floor space, and obstructions such as columns or sprinkler systems that may affect rack placement. Knowing these details in advance helps streamline the system design process and is crucial to calculating the number of bays that will comfortably fit in your area. In areas with increased seismic activity, structural pallet racking is the preferred choice for its robust design when combined with seismic footplates.
  • Type Of Products Being Stored: Consider the products you wish to store in your racking system. How large are they? How much do they weigh? Structural Pallet Racking supports a diverse variety of products do its durable, corrosion resisstant design. The heavy-duty design of structural racking can handle it all, but may be overengineered for your needs, that's why our team of material handling specialists is here to guide you to the appropriate system for your storage application.
  • Throughput & Accessibility: How frequently are you accessing your shelving system? By default, Standard Structural Rack works great when selectivity is a requirement, but in situations where maximum accessibility or LIFO/FIFO inventory control are more important, Structural Racking can be installed in a drive-in, drive-thru, pushback, or flow racking configuration to unlock the benefits of both structural durability and non-selective inventory controls.

What Is Your Budget?

Budget constraints are a central part of buying a material handling system. When planning your system, you should consider the following:

  • Service Life: High Quality, structural grade pallet racking is designed for long-lasting service life. ASI sources minimally damaged structural rack to ensure that a used structural pallet rack system lasts for years to come.
  • Installation & Maintenance Costs: Structural pallet racking generally requires a professional installation team to ensure the system is installed safely and consistent with manufacturer guidelines. While installation can make structural rack a more expensive option when compared with other teardrop rack based systems, ASI's nationwide network of installers can assist in getting your push back system installation handled correctly. With enhanced durability compared to other racking options, in many cases reduced damage leads to lower maintenance costs long term than other forms of racking.
  • Tax Incentives: Equipment such as structural rack purchased at American Surplus may qualify your business to claim the Section 179 Deduction, helping you save even more money at tax time. You should account for these savings when seeking out price quotes from various dealerships.
  • Unbeatable ASI Savings: At ASI, you get the same high-quality material you'd get from the manufacturer with none of the lead team and up to 60% off MSRP. Purchasing material handling equipment from a used supplier like American Surplus can help make your next structural racking system more affordable.

About Structural Pallet Racking

Structural pallet rack is a type of storage system that is designed to support heavy loads and withstand harsh environemnts. 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 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.
