Heavy duty metal display rack for warehouse storage
Warehouse pallet racking have certain standard components. The basic frame consists of the columns and struts that are welded together to form an upright, and the load beams. These are the three basic components of a pallet rack. Actually since the upright is considered one piece once it is fabricated, there are only two basic components. If you were to order pallet racks, you would receive uprights and load beams.
Each pallet rests on two load beams, the front and the back. This is why they are called load beams since they bear the load of the pallet. The decking is optional. Decking can be used to hold skids that are smaller than a standard pallet. They are also used as a safety measure in case a pallet isn’t aligned on the load beams. The decking will take the weight of a misaligned pallet. There are several options for decking including, wire mesh, wood planks, and steel plate.
