Pallet Racking Accessories
Various accessories are available to complement and extend the various pallet racking systems.
Below are a some of the most common.
Steel shelf panels that drop over the front and rear beams to provide a flat storage surface for non-palletised loads.
A structural member used to join two bays together in a back-to-back configuration. Rack heights can be up to ten times the combined depth of conjoined frames.
Post Pallet Channels
Steel section channels hook over the front and rear beams to support post pallet legs.
Fork Clearance Bars
Fork clearance bars fit between the front and rear beams to provide clearance beneath a unit load to facilitate fork entry.
A non-structural spacer fitted between frames to maintain the distance between freestanding runs of pallet racking.
Additional support bars to use with non-standard or odd-size unit loads.
Barrel Drum Chocks
To facilitate positive positioning of cylindrical containers and to prevent accidental displacement.
A welded frame using steel angles to provide support for coils.
Crash Barriers for Racking
Collisions between forklift trucks and racking systems are inevitable in busy warehouses. Implementing protective measures is essential to reduce rack damage, maintenance costs and operational interruptions.The most vulnerable frames of any racking system are those at the front and back of the installation, and at the entry and exit of each aisle (known as the end frames). Rack end barriers protect these frames.
Ground Level Rail
This simple rail with welded end caps runs continuously around the base of a racking installation. Ground level rails are cost effective and offer a high degree of protection.
Square Rack End Barrier
A strong fabricated barrier made from thick rolled hollow section (RHS). It has two horizontal rails, one at floor level. The floor rail protects the end frame against protruding forks and pallets. The top rail is purposely low to avoid providing too much of a lever when hit. This reduces the likelihood of a heavy impact tearing the barrier out of the floor.
Round Rack End Barrier
This is similar to the square rack end barrier, but fabricated from 89mm diameter CHS tubular section. Elegant and attractive, it is ideal for applications where appearances count.
Column protectors guard the bottom 400mm of end frame uprights. Made from thick steel, they offer a high level of protection at a low cost. Various designs are available to suit different upright and bottom beam configurations.
We can design your new racking installation to incorporate any combination of accessories.
