How useful is it to tie single rows of rack to the wall?

It is generally not suggested to tie racks to the wall mainly because lateral forces generated from the building can be transferred to the racks and vice versa forces from the racks being transferred to the building, mainly applicable in seismic geographical zones. If wall ties are used, synchronization between the building civil engineer and the rack designing engineer should exist to ensure that the ties and any transmitted forces will not damage the rack or the building structures. The connection to the wall must be capable of transferring the required forces, and the connectors must be compatible with the wall material. If the height to depth ratio is such that a single row needs extra stability, heavy- duty anchor patterns with larger base plates or cross aisle tie configurations could be used rather than wall ties.


What Is A Frame Splice Channel?

Frame splice channels are used in upright frames to add height on to an existing upright frame when additional levels need to be added.This is mainly used to increase the storage density of the available floor space by using the aerial free space. For adding extra height to the existing rack frames, the base frame capacity should be known, this is to avoid any collapse of the complete rack frame structure after adding height. To increase the aerial height of the racks frame splice channel is welded in top of new frame.

What is A Pallet Rack Row Spacer?

Pallet Row spacers are used to connect rows of pallet rack (back to back). It is used in a flue space between the uprights to stabilize the rack system or provide clearance for building columns or other obstacles. Row spacers bolt onto each upright and connect the uprights together that provides higher stability and maintain uniform spacing between rows of the pallet racks.

What is A Row End Protectors?

Row end protectors are used on pallet racking systems with high traffic aisles. In high traffic , there are higher incidents of damage to the racking system caused by fast moving fork lift trucks. With the rising demand of improving the efficiency, industries are now using faster moving lift trucks in their warehouses. At higher operational speed, there can be more incidence of damages caused to racks. and safety of racks is compromised. The row end protectors are placed on the end of aisle frames at specific heights, offering added protection for the uprights from pallet and forklift damage.

What are The recommended clearances between pallet loads?

While planning a storage racking system clearance around the loads is an important constraint that is to be considered with the size and shape of the loads. Constricted clearance can result in damage to both the loads and the storage racks. Generally the efficiency of the storage system may be reduced in order to minimize the operational damage as the operator slow down the movement of the loads, and this can drastically add to the operation cost of the storage system. On the contrary, excess of clearance may lead to increase in construction cost and reduce the unit storage area of the storage system.

Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems have tighter operating tolerances and, therefore, may be able to function with tighter clearances. The user of the installation is responsible for assuring that these operating clearances are conveyed to the rack designer.

We are a a company backed by team if professional that design and deploy the turnkey storage solution for your diversified need with optimum clearance between loads and maximize the storage density.

What is Push back racking systems

Push back racking systems are racking and shelving structures that are fabricated in roll or structural form. The push back racking systems are most ideal for bulk storage of materials and good, since it is capable of storing products that occupy or run several pallets deep (2-5) and typically measure several levels high. The name Push Back racking system is derived from its storage operations. When a pallet is placed or loaded on the structure, it “pushes” the next pallet back on the rails where it rests as that makes this system commonly known as push back racking system. When the pallets are unloaded from the rails, they are pushed to the front of the structure. These storage structures are loaded using the LIFO system(Last In First Out), and most preferred for large storage systems and warehouses. The push back racking system is deployed with structures that are typically feature with inclined rails and sliding carts, and are often constructed with double lanes.
