Selective Pallet Racking Specification
The frames that are supplied by Midlands Shelving & Racking are constructed from galvanised steel, designed to provide strength and durability to the units.
Our frames and beams come with a powder-coated finish, supplied in a range of colours, creating a unique look to your pallet racking system. As selective pallet racking takes advantage of wider aisles, consideration of the height of the uprights as well inventory volume is required to determine the depth of the shelving units.
With a standard pallet depth being 48”, the rack frame depth will need to accommodate this to work out the maximum height of the uprights. Utilising a 48” deep upright, the beams are spaced precisely to support both the front and rear of the pallet, meaning it’s vital that the pallet is accurately placed. This option offers little room for error.
A 42” depth pallet racking system however will create a slight overhang of the pallets but will be easier in terms of loading and overall cost. Depending on the layout and operation of your warehouse as well as your stock, our selective pallet racking comes in either roll-formed or structural steel. Each offers durability and strength but one may suit your requirements more. At Midlands Shelving & Racking, our experts can provide the right pallet racking design to suit your needs.
Benefits of Selective Pallet Racking
Selective pallet racking is one of the lowest costs per square meter for any warehouse pallet racking system. Because it utilises the vertical height in a single-row design, selective pallet racking will require less steel for construction, therefore reducing the cost. Its simplicity in its design structure efficiently utilises the vertical space without causing issues in loading and unloading.
Installing the correct warehouse pallet racking system to suit your requirements and business is vital to ensure success as well as an increased production flow. A selective pallet racking system also supports the “First in, First Out” inventory control method, where the first items to come into the warehouse are usually the first to leave.
It’s also an ideal solution for companies that deal with low volume but a high-SKU inventory as it allows easy access to stock with the highest SKUs
