Selective Pallet Racking

DistribuTek Leaning Center

Selective rack is the most popular pallet storage medium in use today. The basic configuration which places all loads on an aisle, provides efficient use of space, yet it allows you immediate access to everything in storage. The height of a selective rack system is determined by the building height, available lift equipment, and use considerations. The Selective Pallet Racking rack itself consists of horizontal load-supporting members (beams) and vertical members (frames) which suspend these horizontal members off of the floor. Rack frames consist of front and rear column sections which are tied together by horizontal braces. Beams are connected to these frames using welded endplates, allowing for a connection of inherent rigidity. Most selective rack systems have bays that are two pallet load widths wide. Most standard beam sections can easily work in pairs to handle two pallet loads which normally range , depending on the application, from 1,500 to 3,500 pounds each. Sometimes the lighter pallet loads can be accommodated three abreast, which may lower racking cost. This rack design is ideal if you have product which you need separated for individual and immediate picking. Loads do not need to be stackable, and may be of varying heights and widths. In instances where the load depth is highly variable, it may be necessary to provide load supports or decking. Selective pallet rack might be considered the "benchmark" storage mode, against which other systems may be compared for advantages or disadvantages. Most storage systems benefit from the use of at least some selective pallet rack for items whose storage requirements is less then six months.
