How do I order pallet racking?

Ordering pallet racking, whether for the first time or it’s been a while since your last purchase, can be a confusing & daunting idea if you aren’t familiar with the product.

Here are some tips & tricks to help you out:

  1. What space do you want to fit out?

The Storeplan team know pallet racking – if you have a basic layout or drawing of the area you want to fit out with pallet racking, we are more than happy to come up with a suitable layout that will maximise your available space.

Otherwise, make sure you know the length or lengths of the areas you wish to install pallet racking on, so we can recommend a suitable fit.

  1. Height & Depth

The height of your pallet rack is going to be determined in some cases by the internal roof height of your warehouse.

The maximum reach height of your forklift or reach truck will also determine how high you can go with your pallet racking.

For depth, the two most popular standard racking depths are 840D and 1200D. Choose the depth to suit your pallet size.

  1. Weight Capacity

What is the maximum load you will place on each level of your pallet racking?

It may seem obvious to those who have been in the industry a while, but not all racking is created equal. You definitely don’t want to invest in something that won’t support the weight you need and puts your products, or even worse, employees in danger.

Whether you’re working with one of our qualified sales & design team, or you’re designing everything yourself, you need to know what the maximum weight your pallet rack must support and buy accordingly.

  1. Go to the professionals

Talk to the people who have been in the industry for a while & know the product inside-out.
