About Carpet Rack

Carpet roll racking systems are often composed of corrugated metal decking or wood, to add extra support for carpet rolls, flooring, vinyl rolls, and an assortment of other long products. Industrial roll/carpet storage rack is configured to allow lengthy cardboard or plastic cylinders or rolls of floor carpeting to be stored and retrieved quickly and efficiently in distribution centers. The three types of storage units are: pallet rack, cantilever rack, tier, or stack rack.

Carpet racks will help to increase warehouse safety and help to keep your warehouse organized so product is easy to find. Workers will be able to effectively find product so that they won’t be wasting time searching through piles of unorganized product and materials.

Pallet racking is ideal for roll storage because it can be lined up to create systems that are sufficiently long enough to store rolls up to over 20’ lengthwise. Levels of racking would contain either wood plank decking or sheets of particle board supported by metal or wood pallet supports. Rolls would be stored or picked with a boom attached to a forklift.

Cantilever rack provides quick and easy storage of rolls onto arms that can be spaced according to roll length and weight. Tier and stack rack provide storage for shorter rolls and easy to categorize for quick and easy inventory access. Call (800) 876-3736 and speak with one of our rack technicians about your options.

Advantages of Carpet Rack

Carpet racks, also known as carpet roll racks or carpet pad racks, offer some benefits for storing and organizing carpets and carpet rolls. Here are some key advantages of carpet racks:

  • Efficient use of space: Carpet racks are designed to maximize vertical space, allowing you to store carpet rolls vertically and make the most of your available floor space. By utilizing the height of your storage area, you can significantly increase your storage capacity.
  • Protection and organization: Carpet racks provide a dedicated storage solution for carpets, ensuring proper organization and protection. The racks typically have horizontal arms or beams with cradles that securely hold the carpet rolls, preventing them from unrolling or becoming damaged. This organized storage helps maintain the quality and appearance of the carpets.
  • Easy accessibility: Carpet racks are designed to facilitate easy access to individual carpet rolls. The open design and the use of cradles or arms allow for clear visibility and quick retrieval of specific carpets without the need to move other rolls. This saves time and effort during order fulfillment or inventory management processes.
  • Enhanced safety: Carpet racks are built with safety in mind. They are designed to provide stability and prevent accidents. The cradles or arms securely hold the carpet rolls, minimizing the risk of them falling or shifting. Additionally, some carpet racks have integrated safety features such as lock pins or locking mechanisms to further ensure the safety of the stored carpets.
  • Flexibility: Carpet racks are versatile storage solutions that can accommodate a variety of carpet sizes and types. The adjustable arms or beams can be customized to fit different roll widths, diameters, and weights. This adaptability allows for efficient storage of various carpet products, including different styles, patterns, and thicknesses.
  • Enhanced inventory management: Carpet racks enable better organization and inventory management of carpets. The clear visibility and easy access to individual rolls make it simpler to track inventory levels, conduct stock checks, and rotate stock as needed. This enhances inventory accuracy and reduces the chances of stockouts or overstocking.
  • Lucrative: Investing in carpet racks can contribute to cost savings in several ways. By optimizing vertical space, carpet racks help avoid the need for additional floor space or costly expansions. The organization and protection provided by the racks reduce the risk of carpet damage, minimizing replacement costs. Additionally, efficient inventory management and accessibility contribute to improved productivity and operational efficiency.
