Transforming warehouse storage capabilities 

Pallet racks are an innovative storage system design suited to distribution centers, warehouses and factories. If you’re planning to upgrade or revise a warehouse, racking systems maximize the utilization of available space while increasing productivity, efficiency and accessibility. There are numerous styles of racking systems to choose from, including drive-in units, structural steel selective pallet rack systems and push-back rack systems. The right pallet racking system can significantly streamline operations, saving time, labor and money. It also offers seamless integration with warehouse management software. There is the opportunity to incorporate cost-saving strategies, optimize order fulfillment and track critical data points. The basics of a pallet rack storage system include upright columns connected by horizontal steel beams that support palletized products. The components are typically constructed from structural steel or roll-formed steel. While structural steel provides superior load capacities, roll-formed steel offers easy assembly and value from investment. Depending on the type of racking system, pallet retrieval normally requires forklift trucks and other types of specialized handling equipment. There are basic and functional selective pallet rack systems as well as more complex systems. One of the many benefits of introducing pallet racking into the warehouse is the use of storage space. They take advantage of vertical space. The square footage from floor to ceiling is available and an ideal option for storing pallets and merchandise. Heavy-duty storage racks and wire decks protect goods from damage. Pallet racking handles bulk storage and the housing of odd-shaped items. Construction materials, appliances, automotive parts and even perishables can be better transported, stored and accessed due to the customized design of pallet racks.
