Heavy Duty Pallet Racking Systems

Description

Designed for strength, durability, ease of assembly and operational reliability, our pallet racking system comprises a comprehensive choice of frames and beams which can be precisely selected and combined to meet the requirements of any heavy-duty storage application.

The pallet racking range can be configured to meet precise criteria, in terms of load volume and weight, accessibility, handling requirements and space utilisation, in the safest, most cost-effective way.

It's rigid column design coupled with its 4-point beam connection make it a solid choice for all racking needs.

Design

Selective pallet rack consists of uprights and load beams.

Frames are available in a variety of depths, heights, and capacities. The frame depth is determined by the depth of the pallets being stored. Since a majority of pallets are 1000mm deep, the most common frame depth is 900mm (this allows for a 50mm pallet overhang on the front and rear side for safe loading). The frame height is determined by the ceiling height, the number of beam levels, and the reachable height of the materials handing equipment being used.

Beams are available in a variety of lengths and load capacities. The beam length is determined by the depth of the pallets being stored. Generally two pallets are stored side by side in a bay of rack. The most common beam lengths are 2743mm which allows for 2 x 1200mm wide pallets to be stored on a beam level. The beam capacity needed is determined by the maximum weights of the pallets being stored. 

Specifications

Finish: Pallet racking components are phosphate pre-treated, then powder coated (some items wet painted) and baked to give a glossy, durable high-quality finish. 'House' colours and galvanised finish available on request.

Material: Pallet racking components are made from high quality steel. Every stage in the manufacturing process is subject to stringent quality procedures, developed through years of experience.

We use high quality steel and state of the art manufacturing technology, and all of our selective rack undergoes stringent quality control.

Safety

Due to an increase of regulations and strict enforcement pertaining to storage systems within industrial and retail establishments, Optima Storage Solutions has prudently chosen to refrain from publishing rack frame and beam capacity charts to the general public. 

Capacity charts of individual rack components are very limited in scope. The use of components by personnel not familiar with their strength and stability interactions in a given configuration can result in a deficient storage structure that poses serious safety hazards to one's workplace and employees. To comply with current regulations, Optima Storage Solutions will design an engineered storage system that will meet all applicable standards for our valued customers' unique requirements.

Should you have any questions or concerns with regard to the safe loading, use, or maintenance of your storage system, please do not hesitate to contact us directly for assistance with your needs. You and your employees deserve the peace of mind of dealing with a reputable supplier who puts workplace safety first
