FAQ’s About Used Pallet Racking

What Is Teardrop Pallet Rack?

A teardrop pallet rack is a storage shelving system typically found in warehouses. It uses an inverted teardrop shaped hole connector to secure the shelving beams in place without any hardware needed. Call CMH at (757) 465-8338 so we can assist you in getting the right pallet rack system for your application.  We offer used racking for sale with quick service and affordable pricing.

What Is Selective Pallet Rack?

The most common style of pallet rack, Selective Pallet Rack is designed for high-density warehouses that store a large variety of products. This type of racking system provides 100% access to all pallet positions at all times without having to move other pallets. Selective rack is easy to install and easy to reconfigure should storage dimensions change.

Drive-In Rack?

Drive-In Rack is a narrow storage system best for applications that utilize the “Last In, First Out” (or LIFO) method of inventory control. Pallets are stored on rails and access to the pallets is from the front. Consequently, pallets are stored back to back which creates a dense storage area. Drive-in rack is ideal for products that ship in and out of the warehouse quickly.

Push-Back Rack?

Push-Back Rack, much like Drive-In Rack, utilizes the LIFO method of inventory control. Pallets are stored on carts which move along rails. Unlike selective rack, which stores in a single pallet deep system, push-back rack can store pallets 2-5 deep. When the first skid or pallet is picked, material behind gently rolls forward on rails. All levels are accessible individually. storage area. Drive-in rack is ideal for products that ship in and out of the warehouse quickly.

Pallet Flow Rack?

Pallet Flow Rack is a combination of elevated rails, wheels, and rollers. This offers a high-density storage system which is ideal for operations using the “First In, First Out” (or FIFO) method of inventory control. Warehouses with minimal space are ideal for pallet flow rack, as aisle space can be reduced by as much as 75%. When the pallet is picked, material behind gently rolls forward on rails. All levels are accessible individually. storage area. 

What Is The Difference Between Pallet Rack And Industrial Shelving?

Industrial Shelving is used for storing small parts and boxes that will be loaded by hand. Ideal for operations that don’t have room for, or access to a powered lift. These shelving units can be free-standing or bolted together. Pallet racks are heavy duty storage racks found in warehouses, distribution centers, and big-box retailers. Product is stored on pallets and loaded with a forklift or other powered industrial truck. Pallet rack is taller and wider than shelving.

Is There A Standard Size For Pallet Rack?

There is no single standard size for pallet rack as it depends on your specifications. However, most common height for pallet rack frames is 16′. We supply frames available from 8′ all the way to 60′ high. Depths range from 18″-72″. Pallet rack beams range in length from 4′ to 16′, with the most common beams being between 8′ and 12′ long, depending on the application.

Should I Use Wire Decking With My Pallet Racks?

Wire decking is the recommended material for pallet rack decking, especially considering many municipalities have local fire codes requiring the use of wire decking.

What Are Row Spacers?

Row Spacers provide a consistent amount of distance between two rows of pallet rack. They have a flange on each end to secure the spacer to the frame. Row spacers should be installed when there are multiple bays in a continuous row.

What Is Pallet Rack Netting?

Pallet Rack Netting is hung behind or underneath a pallet rack system, preventing product that has fallen off the racks from making it all the way to the ground. This protects your employees from injury as well as potentially reducing damage to fallen product.

Should I Anchor My Pallet Rack System To The Floor?

Yes. You should always anchor your pallet rack to the floor. The footplates on your uprights offer specific locations to place your anchors, which are essential to prevent the entire rack system from falling over as well as for enforcing uniform aisle spacing.
