PHS provides heavy-duty pallet racking shelves to help increase your warehouse storage space. We carry 4 custom industrial racking styles from edge, selective, supported, and push-back racking systems. Contact a sales representative today for more details. 1-800-404-2311.
Pallet racking can be purchased at a single level or a multi-level storage system. They are utilized to support at a high stacking height. Premier Pallet rack systems are a rudimentary component of any warehouse, distribution, storage facility, or any variety of material handling operations. Our Pallet racks allow convenient access to your stored materials. Premier Pallet rack systems augment your facility to conserve maximum space. Enhance your storage facility even further with Premier Wire Containers.
Selective Racking is the most common and versatile pallet racking style in the industry. Selective racking allows immediate access to every load without requiring you to move around loads. Selective racking works well for businesses that operate on a FIFO (First In First Out) system.
There are two main types of Selective Racking:
Single Deep Selective: Single selective racking is the most common type of pallet racking and is one pallet deep. Although single deep is flexible and low cost, it comes at the cost of space utilization.
Double Deep Selective: Double deep selective racking provides a benefit of space utilization as two single selective racks are placed back to back allowing you to store two pallet loads deep.
Push-Back Racking has a singular loading area that allows you to load a pallet while simultaneously pushing the previous pallet towards the back of the rack. Push-Back racking can be configured for FIFO (First In First Out) load management if there are separate loading and unloading zones, or LIFO (Last In First Out) load management if loading and unloading zones are the same.
There are two main types of Push-Back Racking:
Push-Back with shuttles: Pallets are loaded onto shuttles which move along rails with a slight incline.
Push-back with Rollers: The pallets are loaded onto a a bed of rollers that fixed to the racks with a slight incline.
Edge Racking refers to pallet racking in which the pallets are provided no central support and the pallets are supported on only two edges of the pallet. Before considering edge racking, make sure you look at the racking capacity of the pallet you are looking to rack as it is usually referencing edge racking capacity. This type of racking is typically racked on the 48″ sides of a standard 40″ x 48″ pallet but can also be racked on the 40″ sides as well, such as a selective unsupported racking.
There are two main types of Edge Racking:
Drive-In Rack: The pallets are loaded by driving through the racks and most often racked along the 48″ edges of the pallet.
Standard Selective Racking: Pallets are loaded from the front of the rack side by side along the 40″ edges of the pallet.
Supported racking is Selective Racking with central support to safeguard misaligned pallets and increase the structural integrity of the pallet. This will also minimizing deflection (degree to which a structural or roll-formed component is bent or displaced under a load).
There are three main types of supports for supported racking:
Flange Supports: Flange supports fit over the top of the front and back step beams.
Flush Supports: These types of supports flush up to the step beams and leave the face of the step beams completely unobstructed.
Wire Mesh Decking: Wire Mesh Decking is one of the most common support accessories and forms a foundation between beams allowing for a uniform support to the whole pallet load. Although mesh decking is often seen as a flange support it can also be flush.
