PALLET RACKING DESIGN We can offer bespoke design, installation and project management of any racking project.


The need to invest in pallet racking is often a straightforward requirement. However, different types of pallet racking can have vastly different outcomes in terms of efficiency and cost be it for standard conventional racking, drive in pallet live, push back or very narrow aisle.


1. Some general considerations


l Make sure the pallets are suitable for use in pallet racking. The weight on the pallet is evenly spread over the full area on the pallet.


l Confirm the size of the load you are storing considering any overhang.


TYPICAL AISLE WIDTHS


− Counter balance fork lift trucks lifting to about 5m, aisle width 4m.


− Reach trucks or stackers lifting to about 8m, aisle width 3m.

l Understand the depth, width and height of the load including the pallet.

No matter how carefully you use your storage scheme, damage will occur from time to time, which can result in serious consequences, including injury to staff, if left undetected. We have a skilled team of safety engineers who are on hand to provide SEMA approved pallet racking inspections to determine the safety and structural integrity of your pallet racking systems.


As pallet racking suppliers with SEMA Approved Racking Inspectors (SARI), we are perfectly positioned to report on the status of your installation, regardless of the original supplier.


Load depth


2. Simple calculations for pallet storage FRAMES − The frame height


− Allow 300mm at each storage level for clearance to place and remove the load and the height of beam.


− The frame height = (load height + 300mm) x number of levels stored on beams + 600mm.


− Remember to consider any lighting or sprinklers at roof level that may require additional clearance.


− The frame depth.


− Depth of the pallet minus 100mm. This will ensure that the corner blocks of the pallet will be supported on the beams.


Increasing the vertical spacing of the beams will reduce the maximum weight that a frame can safely support.


BEAMS − The beam length. − Assuming 2 loads per beam = 2 x load width + 300mm.


− Loads on beams to be uniformly distributed – do not exceed the beam capacity.


AISLES


− The aisle width depends on the mechanical handling equipment being used and the size of the load. The supplier of the equipment will provide recommended widths.


Racking Inspections


SEMA guidelines suggest you should have at least one pallet racking inspection from an expert every 12 months, but you should also run regular checks yourself on a weekly or monthly basis.


By carrying out these inspections and identifying any safety issues, you can also reduce lifetime costs associated with general pallet racking maintenance.


l Meet your legal requirements under Health and Safety Regulations.


l Help reduce insurance premiums and maintenance costs. l Avoid accidents and consequences of failing to comply with HSE.


Whether you’re unsure about the structural integrity of your existing pallet racking system or simply want to keep up to date with best practices for a safe working environment, call us today.
