Frequently Asked Questions
How do you design a warehouse rack?
There are many factors to consider when designing a warehouse rack storage system. Key factors are selectivity, accessibility, locations, safety, pick velocity, inventory, and future growth. The design usually begins with the product and the load size, the number of pallets to be stored, the order picking process, and the building’s storage area dimensions. Our experienced sales professionals meet with you to understand the needs of your organization and design the ideal system for your current and future business requirements.
What are the different types of racks available?
Pallet Racks may be constructed using roll formed steel components, structural steel components or a combination of the two. Roll-formed steel racking is the most cost-effective pallet rack system, where coils of sheet steel are punched and formed into unique frame post and beam profiles. Structural Component racking is priced higher than Roll Formed, however it is far more robust and less prone to damage, due to its sturdy channel construction. Finally, where a rack system consists of Roll Formed and Structural Steel Components, structural end-frames and roll-formed beams are used in combination. Whatever your needs, we have the solution for you.
What are the different kinds of racking systems?
There are various types of racking systems which can each be tailored to your specific needs and applications. These systems range from low to high density, from FIFO to LIFO, and everything in between. We regularly design storage systems from single selective racking, double-deep, drive-in, push-back, pallet flow, carton flow… whatever your space and your needs are, we’ll properly design the racking system to optimize every cubic foot of your warehouse.
How much does warehouse racking cost?
As there are several types of storage rack systems available, prices will vary widely based on your needs and selection. As a general rule of thumb, costs vary from $75 to $450 per pallet position, depending on the specific rack type.
Are rack inspections required?
Jurisdictions across the country enforce regulations, such as the Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA), require employers to maintain a safe workplace. This includes ensuring that structures are capable of supporting the loads applied to them and that equipment is maintained in good condition.
Regular rack inspections are required to identify any visible damage or other conditions that could affect the load capacity or performance of the rack structure. The frequency of rack inspections must, as a minimum, ensure compliance with local regulations.
