Pallet Racking

Pallet racking systems consist of pre-assembled welded end frames and interlocking horizontal beams, engaging on 3” increments with safety clips for secure attachment. Complying with regulations, these systems are the foundation of warehouse racking. To enhance efficiency, integrate dynamic solutions like Pushback Racking, Pallet Flow Racking, Drive-In Racking, Carton Flow Racking, and Conveyors. Pallet racking frames come in standard depths of 24” to 72” and up to 32’ high, with custom sizes available. Pallet racking beams, in roll-formed box, welded step, or roll-formed step styles, offer capacities from 1,000 lbs. to 12,000 lbs. per pair, accommodating lengths from 24” to 192”.
