As you take the tour notice that the staging area is to the left in front of the dock doors. The rack rows are to the right and run in the direction of the dock doors easing the product flow. The pallet rack has a bottom beam level that is roughly 10″-12″ off the floor. Bottom beam levels are commonly used with order pickers or stand up reach trucks with outriggers that extend off the front of the lift truck. A bottom beam level helps reduce forklift damage to the front leg of the uprights during pallet picking. The forklifts outriggers go under the bottom beam level when picking pallets. It is also important to use a beam that is longer than 96″ when using stand up reach trucks with outriggers. Beam lengths of 102″-108″ separate the upright columns further apart which helps reduce damage from outriggers.
