Used teardrop pallet rack is the most popular brand of pallet rack on the market today. It is a universal style pallet rack that provides direct access to every pallet stored.  The roll-formed design, with a "teardrop" shaped punch, is interchangeable with most manufacturers.  The beams are usually orange, and the frames are green.  The frames are welded together, instead of bolted, for added stability.  Beams are adjustable in 2" increments.  Holes are drilled on the face of the column, not the corners, maximizing strength.  New and used Interlake teardrop pallet rack is easy to assemble, no clips or fasteners, and adjust without tools.  

Teardrop rack is designed and assembled based on customer's product weight, size, and volume.  Many accessories are available including row spacers, column guards, and wire decking.

Our quick ship program, in conjunction with Interlake, Mecalux, and other nationwide manufacturers ships the most popular rack components quickly, using the fastest, most cost effective freight carrier.

Used teardrop pallet rack manufacturers include Frazier, Interlake, Steel King and Unarco.   American Surplus stocks these brands along with Ridg-u-Rak and Mecalux.  Design and installation of used teardrop pallet rack, by trained professionals, is available nationwide. 


We carry the following accessories for your pallet rack:


Used teardrop pallet racking is a very common style of roll formed racking. It is called “tear drop” because the holes in the upright columns are shaped like a tear drop. Load beams are held in place by clips instead of bolts, making it faster to assemble and disassemble than bolted styles of pallet racking. Teardrop is a type of selective pallet rack because you can access every pallet. (click here to view entire article)



Pallets in selective racking systems are only stored one deep, so every inventory item can be accessed at any time. This makes for quicker retrieval of inventory, but it also means less dense storage than other styles of racking like drive in or push back. These styles are denser because they utilize depth for storage, storing pallets 4-6 deep, so the whole system requires less rows. Each row is valuable space that could have been used for storage, and selective rack requires the most amount of rows.

Inventory items in drive in or drive through rack cannot be accessed until the pallets in front of it are taken down. Selective rack is better for the applications where you have unique inventory items on each pallet, whereas racks that utilize depth in storage should have like items because being selective is not an option.

Why buy used teardrop pallet racking? New pallet racking can be very expensive, and used pallet racking from ASI is in good working condition. Does a structure that is just going to be in a warehouse or storage facility need to be brand new? At American Surplus we inspect all of the beams, uprights, clips, and all other components for any wear or damage, so you can be assured that you are getting a top quality used product.
