Pallet Rack Beams

Shop our Online Catalog: New Pallet Racks

Pallet rack beams are adjustable on 2 centers and come in three different options.  They can be one piece units, called step beams.  They can be JN beams, or they can be Z beams, commonly used for building picking levels.  Easy Rack has an extensive range of pallet rack beams that are designed to accommodate the diversity of load requirements found throughout the many different storage facilities we serve.  Selective pallet rack beams can be ordered in the branded Mecalux style or the industry standard teardrop style.  (One thing to keep in mind about the Mecalux style is it will also work with Teardrop systems). 


Pallet rack beams are adjustable on 2” centers and come in three different options.  They can be one piece units, called step beams.  They can be JN beams, or they can be Z beams, commonly used for building picking levels. 


As just noted, the most popular pallet rack beam design is the Tear Drop Step Beam.  These range in length from 48” to 144”.  Naturally, length and thickness determines weight capacity.  Each beam’s safety factor conforms to current Rack Manufacturer Institute standards.  Capacities are based on the even distribution of load throughout the beam.  Single piece pallet rack beams that measure more than 108” long might have to have extra lateral support placed at the mid span point.  (We recommend doing this). 


Another design that is growing in popularity is the Easy Rack Ergo Beam.  This pallet rack beam design has been repeatedly proven to increase worker productivity while simultaneously reducing worker injuries.


It is made from 4” of structural steel channel.  Structural steel is far more resistant to damage than rolled steel.  In 90% of impact-related accidents, these beams can remain functional and operations can continue while repairs are being made in the meantime.  Ergo beams are intended to accommodate standard 48” X 40” pallets and can also be used with standard pallet supports.  Manufacturers make these units in three different model options as follows:


Standard- The channel flange faces inward to provide a comfortable surface for cartons.

Channel Flange Out- The exterior flanges protect bar-code labels from being damaged

Label-Ergo Beam- this has a smooth surface and a 1/8” recessed web that prevents label damage.


The great thing about these pallet rack beams is they provide such easy access to hard to reach cartons on lower shelf levels.  This is because Ergo Beams create openings between pallet locations so an order picker can approach and comfortably reach the cartons in the rear.


This has reduced product breakage in virtually every business that has switched to using this type of pallet rack beam.  Businesses are very happy due to the money this saves them on inventory replacement costs.  In many ways, it has proven to be the best solution for warehouse workers because of the way it splits the front shelf beam into two separate curved beams that attach to the rear horizontal.


The opening this creates allows for plenty of room for order pickers to safely and efficiently access cartons in either the front or rear pallet with minimal risk of worker injury.


Finally, for companies whose operations consist of light loads with minimal risk of product damage or worker injury, one great way to save money is to invest in used pallet rack beams.  Used Tear Drop models can be bought that range anywhere from 51”-153” in length.  Because they are used, there is no way to guarantee weight capacity, which is why we recommend they be used only when minimal risk to products and human safety are assured to begin with.
