An invention many of us take for granted, there are shelves all around us. It's a very useful invention for storage and over the years we have adapted the design to suit a vast range of storage options, such as bookshelves and cupboards, however with regards to warehouse storage, it's hard to forget pallet racking .
What Is Pallet Racking?
Pallet racking has been in most British warehouses since the Second World War. There are numerous different styles of pallet racking, however all types allow for palletised goods to be stored in rows with multiple levels, thus maximising the horizontal space of the warehouse. Similar to how you might use a spice rack in a kitchen to conveniently store jars of spices in a neat and tidy manner; pallet racking allows warehouses to store large quantities of different products whilst still maintaining an easy to navigate area.
There are numerous different styles of pallet racking, one of which is the selective pallet racking system which comes in one of two configurations, Roll formed and structural. Roll formed which is usually manufactured in a teardrop style that uses mounting clips, allowing for quick changes in configuration and shelving. In this style of packing, pallets are rested on horizontal load beams which area held in place by the above mentioned mounting clips.
On the other hand, the other form of selective pallet racking, structural racking systems are very similar in design to roll formed, however their horizontal load beams are attached to the uprights with bolts, providing a much greater weight bearing capacity. However, don't be mistaken into thinking that these bolts reduce the adjustability of this design, the racks can be constructed, reconfigured, dismantled, and reused as necessary.
