Pallet Racking

Pallet Rack

MHS provides quality used, brand new and refurbished pallet rack systems.
An efficient pallet rack system is an integral part of an optimized warehouse. There are several factors involved in maximizing cube utilization in a warehouse. Addressing pallet storage optimization early in the warehouse planning and design process is recommended.

Selective pallet racking

Selective pallet racking is the most common pallet racking system in use today. Selective pallet racking is typically either manufactured in roll formed steel with pin connectors that lock in place or in structural steel with beams that will bolt to the uprights. Structural pallet rack is typically utilized in heavier duty applications where capacities need to be increased above and beyond what roll formed rack can provide.
Selective pallet rack systems provide easy accessibility to all pallet positions at all times – especially important if the inventory is rapidly depleted and restocked.
Selective pallet rack systems are commonly utilized in big-box distribution applications, as well as in retail store inventory rooms, cold storage applications, wholesale stores, etc.
Common components of selective pallet rack include the following:
Load beams (also called step beams or box beams). Most step beams are roll formed with a 1-5/8″ step. This step is utilized to hold any load support items such as pallet supports or wire decks. Box beams have no step, instead have four flat sides like a box. All load beams typically mount onto an upright frame column with integral rivets or hooks. Some systems utilize an extra clip or bolt to lock the beam to the upright.Structural beams are hot formed structural C shapes with connecting clips at either end. Structural load beams are generally used with structural uprights but can be used with standard roll formed uprights. Structural load beams offer heavier weight capacities than step beams or box beams.
Pallet rack upright frames (also called upright columns or uprights) vary in size and design depending on load requirements, and styles. The most common upright column is produced by roll forming flat coil stock steel into a modified “C” shape with returns. This style is often referred to as open-back roll-formed columns. Majority of the upright frames are 3″ x 3″ column in the range of 11 to 14 gauge steel. The most common depth of pallet rack uprights in North America is 42″ Deep. Holes or slots are punched during manufacturing up and down the column at standard intervals so that the load beams can be mounted into the upright columns. Upright frames can also be constructed utilizing structural C shapes for columns. Structural uprights have an increased weight capacity over roll formed uprights.

For increased pallet rack storage safety wire deck is added to prevent materials from falling through the rack and allow for hand stack of materials
