PALLET RACKING BASICS
First, let us review some pallet racking basics. The core of a pallet rack system is typically very simple. This includes only a few parts that allow it to be sturdy and durable. This includes at least two frames (also known as uprights) with some cross beams and decking. The number of beams determines levels and bays are stacked side by side to form an aisle.
TEARDROP OR SELECTIVE RACKING
This is one of the most popular types, as it costs less and highly efficient. The term teardrop refers to the pattern cutouts on each upright. Using a boltless design, beams attach using a 3-pin clip. This makes racks easy to assemble.
INCREASE WAREHOUSE-STORAGE USING PALLET RACKS
The high cost of real estate makes expansion very difficult. A much less expensive solution is to use pallet racking. The use of pallet racks may increase your storage by as much as 37-71 percent.
So how does Dallas Pallet Racking make this happen? All warehouses are bound to lose some space due to sudden changes in their operations. We help companies reclaim this lost space by designing a new layout.
In addition, some warehouses may have unused vertical space that can be used for expansion. In addition, the use of increased heights also helps to expand storage. A high pile permit may be required when limits are increased.
HOW TO CREATE A NEW WAREHOUSE LAYOUT DESIGN
In most cases and depending on the size of your space, the use of automation and technology is the first step. The new design needs to be dynamic and have a good workflow. It is more important though that it fits your budget. Pacific Bend Inc has created a great guide for the pallet racking design layout.
