PALLET RACKING : GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION

Date:2019-10-08

PALLET RACKING : GENERAL PRODUCT  INFORMATION 

1.Pallet racking

Pallet racking system consists of a full range of basic components and accessories to fulfill all of your requirements. The system is designed for the optimized storage of goods of all sizes and weights. All components have been thoroughly tested to determine their mechanical properties. These are used to calculate the safe load capacity of each component and ensure that they meet the stringent requirements for Pallet Racking. 

2. Surface Finish:

The finish of all painted parts is an Epoxy-powder coating polymerized at 180 °C.

The standard colors are     RAL 5010 (= dark blue) for the frames and RAL 2004 (=pure orange) for the beams. Protectors are painted in RAL 1018 (= golden yellow). Some smaller parts have a galvanized finishing. Special colors are available on request. 

3. The basic components

 Frame

Footplate

Leveling plate

Beam

Pick & deposit station

Pallet support

Container support

Frame protector

Upright protector

Corner protector

Fall through protection 

3.1 THE FRAMES

The frames are composed of 2 uprights and a number of diagonals. The frames are bolted, resulting in a lower repair cost if they are damaged by lift trucks. Each connection is secured with a lock-nut.

The wide range of types of frames allows the rack construction to be optimized for heights of up to 15 m and bay-loads of up to 30 tons.

The uprights are very accurately cold-formed and they can be produced in lengths of up to 15m.

3.2 THE FRAME BRACING

The bracing comprises two horizontal profiles and a number of diagonals, bolted between the uprights to provide structural support of the uprights and to ensure stability of the rack in the depth direction.

3.3 THE CONNECTOR

The boltless connection allows a quick and efficient assembly. The stability of the unbraced rack is determined by the properties of the connector. The connector is made of high quality steel. The safety pin prevents accidental dislodge of the beam. 

3.4 THE BEAM PROFILE

The box – beam 

The beam is composed of two cold-formed C-profiles. It is very resistant to torsion and provides great stiffness in both horizontal and vertical directions, with a load bearing capacity of up to 4 tons per beam level. 

The shelf – beam for picking levels 

The box - beam with step-down welded L-profile.

The shelves are flush with the top of the beam

 3.5 THE FOOTPLATE AND LEVELLING PLATE

A range of dedicated footplates have been designed for specific applications (VNA-applications, High-Bay systems, etc.). The load bearing capacity depends on the effective area of the footplate. The racking is adjusted by means of leveling plates, in accordance with the applied regulations. After leveling, the racking is anchored. 

3.6 THE ROW SPACER

In double racks row spacers are installed between each pair of frames, they can also be used for fixing the sprinkler fire protection system.  For some applications single uprights are used in combination with frames. These are connected with the so-called “in-on” - row spacers.

 The sprinkler system is connected on the row spacers, which link the two frames of the double rack. The flue between the pallets depends on local regulations (often 150mm).

 3.7 THE PALLET SUPPORT

The pallet support is used to support pallets of poor quality or when pallets are placed with the 1200mm side facing the aisle. A pair of galvanized cold-rolled pallet supports can take a load of up to 1200kg. 

3.8 THE CONTAINER SUPPORT

The container support is equipped with a side guidance and optionally with an integrated back-stop. It is recommended for safe storage of containers.

  3.9 THE PICK & DEPOSIT STATION

The Pick & Deposit Station can be equipped with a centering device for a more accurate positioning of the pallets.

The Pick & Deposit Station is installed at the end of the racking aisles. It serves as an interface between the pallet handling equipment (such as VNA-trucks) and the trucks used for in –or outbound.

 3.10 THE PROTECTORS

Protection of the racking against collision from a fork lift truck is important. The expected lifetime will be extended and repairs limited. A number of basic protectors are available.

The corner protector

The corners of the racking are vulnerable to damage caused by collisions. The corner protectors are anchored on both sides of the upright.

The upright protector

The upright protector will reduce the damage caused by impact loads. Especially for installations with fast moving products or heavy products, upright protectors are essential for the safety and lifetime of the racking.

The frame protector

Constant traffic around the end-frames or the frames at the cross aisles often causes damage to the racking. The frame protector is built with a sigma main beam, supported by two end protectors. For longer runs intermediate supporting brackets are mounted. 

The push through protector

Push through protectors can be used in single and double entry racks. They are often used to protect the wall of the building, for instance in cold-stores, or to guarantee the space between the pallets in double racks for the sprinkler fire protection system. The stop beam can also be used to fix cladding on the back of the racking. If possible push through protection should be avoided as excessive horizontal forces are applied on the racking.
