An introduction to pallet racking

At the core of any pallet rack system, we have only a few parts. Made up of frames the play the role of bookends and horizontal crossbeams that allow it to be sturdy and durable. Beams are installed opposite each other to create a bay. The number of beams determines stack levels. Bays are secured via additional frames from side-to-side to form an aisle.

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.

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 San Diego 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.


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.

The basic premise of this outline revolves around three steps.

  1. Define your storage needs.
    (Capacity, storage, pallet racks, and workflow.)
  2. Set your budget and do not forget about permits.
    (Be sure to allocate a budget for the City of San Diego and fire permit fees. Also, think about building code fixes that may be required.)
  3. Select a good vendor to be your partner.
    (Select a vendor that is asking the right questions and willing to help you complete the project.)


Our racking is RMI certified for use in the county of San Diego. This means that they are structurally sound. Made in the USA, uprights use large footplates to help meet seismic requirements.

RMI is a standard that has been around for over 50 years. A group of engineers tests the materials and grants this label. This guarantees the quality of the workmanship for our clients.
