New & Used Pallet Storage Rack Installation & Sales Nationwide.
The term “pallet storage racks” is simply another term for heavy-duty pallet racks or heavy-duty shelving. Is refers to higher weight capacitance, not to a specific size or style. Some units feature weight capacities of up to 48,000 pounds.
In terms of structural appearance, pallet storage racks differ little from their lighter duty equivalents. They function in much the same way, the only real difference being that they require professional installation to be safely and efficiently setup and they must be moved with heavier equipment in order to ensure the safety of both workers and content.
As such, almost all pallet storage racks are designed to anticipate and withstand occasional forklift collisions that can result through either human or mechanical error. In addition to substantially reducing replacement costs by using an industrial strength pallet rack that can withstand greater stress, investing in industrial strength pallet racking systems can possibly generate commercial insurance discounts on the basis that the equipment is significantly less likely to be damaged to the point of filing a claim.
From a material handling perspective, pallet storage racks make large materials behave like small ones. By designating storage space for heavy equipment, parts, and large containers that is simultaneously compact and portable on demand, pallet storage racking systems make it easier and safer to move extremely cumbersome materials from one point to the other with a minimum of risk to people or equipment.
The most popular pallet storage racks found commonly throughout warehouses and factories nationwide is the teardrop design. The standard dimensions for a teardrop pallet storage rack is 64” in width and 300” in height. In most normal heavy-duty storage environments, this usually provides all necessary storage space for the requirements at hand. Teardrop racks also offer an additional 2” of adjustable space to create maximum efficiency in height usage.
Teardrop pallet storage racking systems consist of boltless design that provides easy assembly and quick adjustment on the spot. Braces are welded together to high tensile steel columns to create a safe and sturdy upright truss. The most heavy-duty teardrop units feature a storage capacity of up to 35,000 lbs.
For loads larger than this, structural steel pallet racks provide even more weight capacity and storage space. These exceptionally large racking systems can hold up to 48,000 lbs and offer 30 additional inches of beam span compared to teardrop industrial racks. Structural steel racks are also especially designed to withstand forklift collisions without buckling or spilling their contents.
