Selective Pallet Racking
Selective pallet racking is the most common pallet racking system in use today. Selective pallet racking typically come in one of two configurations: a roll formed and a structural bolt-together configuration.
Roll formed selective rack is most commonly manufactured in a “teardrop” style (so named as the holes on the column of the upright are shaped like a teardrop). Pallets rest on the horizontal beams. Because the beam configurations can be quickly moved, the shelves can be easily adjusted to different heights to accommodate various load sizes. This is convenient for a warehouse that needs to store a wide variety of product sizes.
Structural pallet rack systems are very similar to roll formed pallet rack systems except the horizontal load beams are attached to the uprights with bolts and have much greater weight-bearing capacity. The bolt fixings make this a form of adjustable shelving – racks can be constructed, reconfigured, and dismantled and reused as necessary.
Selective pallet rack systems provide easy accessibility to all products at all times. A selective pallet rack system can be used in a “big-box” distribution application, as well as in retail store inventory rooms, cold storage applications, wholesale stores, etc.
