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.
