Do you want to place the first level of pallets on the floor?
Placing the pallet 6″ above the floor may be required for air circulation in a freezer, or where some condition exists such that placing the pallet on the floor is not desirable.
Do you need Post Protectors?
Post Protectors keep pallet rack frames safe from lift truck or other loading equipment damage by providing solid steel protection at the base of the upright.
Will you require Front-to-Back Pallet Supports?
They allow for storage of pallets which are not deep enough to fit on standard rack frame depths while providing additional support to standard pallets. It also provides a measure of safety if the pallet is not set properly on the beams.
Do you need wire decking?
Wire decking gives you the opportunity to store un-palletized boxes on a beam level. With open wire mesh construction, water from fire sprinklers can freely flow to lower levels. They also provide some safety by supporting pallets which are not aligned properly on the beams.
