Structural drive in rack offers you the double D’s: Density and Durability. You can’t top the storage density you get with a drive in pallet racking system. And when you combine a high density drive in pallet racking system with the strength of hot rolled structural steel, you get structural pallet racking that is designed and built to last.
Food and Grocery distributors are notoriously rough on their drive in pallet racking and you will be hard pressed to find a system that doesn’t use high bay structural pallet racking. We offer a variety of structural pallet rack systems including selective pallet rack, drive-in rack, pushback rack and pallet flow rack. Food distributors also find that the structural c-channels are easier to wipe down and clean which helps them meet FDA requirements.
Structural pallet racking is a popular choice for ALL warehouses and distribution centers because it is more durable than roll form drive in rack and can last many years longer if properly protected. Don’t get me wrong, it is more expensive then roll formed drive in pallet racking, but that’s because it has a lot more steel.
Home Depot switched over from roll form to structural drive in pallet racking at all of their distribution centers and they have seen an estimated $400,000.00 annual savings in rack maintenance cost. When pallets are stored at high elevations, structural pallet racking is a no-brainer.
Structural C-Channel uprights and beams offer greater capacity and greater rigidity.
Structural pallet racking is more expensive, more durable and longer lasting than roll formed racking, but pays you back in reduced maintenance cost!
Popular options for structural drive in racking include:
• Deflectors – ALL front columns have a 12 inch Angle Deflector to deflect forklift impact.
• Load Stops – All levels have 2 rear load stops bolted to uprights to keep from pushing out loads on the rear of the system.
• Guide Rails / Rub Rail – All bays shave interior guide channel to guide forklifts thru bays and minimize damage due to hitting interior upright frames.
• Column Reinforcement – All uprights have double / boxed column up 72” high on BOTH front and back columns.
