Widely Applicable Selective Pallet Racking System for Various Storage Demands
Selective pallet racks are the most popular type of warehouse pallet rack system on the market and are designed to offload pallets into a racking system. Selective pallet racking systems enable swift operations while storing and unloading pallets. The system offers the largest possible range of selection in sizes and accessories to meet your exact needs and it can be custom-configured for your warehouse storage application.

With the rapid development of the economy and increasing demands of customers, requirements for warehousing are upgrading. To satisfy different storage needs, there are various pallet rack systems available for selection in the market.
However, none of them is perfect. If you set up a suitable pallet rack system in your facility, it will be conducive to the administration of inventory flow, improve space efficiency and enhance storage capacity, whereas an unsuitable one will cause you trouble. Here are some tips to help you build a proper pallet rack system:
How to choose the right type of pallet rack system?
Every pallet rack system has its own advantages and disadvantages. It is advisable to employ appropriate rack system in terms of specific storage needs. You can make decisions from the following aspects:
Which load method do you prefer, FIFO (first in, first out) or FILO (first in, last out)? If the stored products are time-sensitive, FIFO is critical for the rack system. If the potency of products is durable and far from the expiration date, FILO is acceptable.
Common FIFO pallet rack systems: selective pallet rack, very narrow aisle pallet rack, pallet flow rack;
Common FILO pallet rack systems: double deep pallet rack, drive-in pallet rack, push back pallet rack.
♦Selectivity VS. Density
Selectivity is related to the variety of stored units, while density is connected with product quantity. If you are going to store a lot of different products, attach importance to selectivity when choosing a pallet rack; if you plan to store a large number of the same SKUs, put density before selectivity.
100% selectivity pallet rack systems: selective pallet rack, very narrow aisle pallet rack, ASRS;
High-density pallet rack systems: drive-in pallet rack, push-back pallet rack, pallet flow rack, radio shuttle rack.
Budget is another factor concerning pallet rack selection. Making full use of available space within your budget is the ideal result. The costs of different pallet rack systems vary. If you are not clear, you can consult us for advice. We are confident to offer you the most cost-effective plan.
How to make sure the size of pallet racks?
After selecting a suitable type of pallet rack, it is time to identify the size. You can proceed in the following steps:
Make sure which area in your facility is used for storage. Take measurements of the available space. Based on the measured data, draw a layout indicating dimensions, ceiling height and positions of doors, walls, pillars and other obstacles.
Which pallet size would you plan to choose? How much would a pallet carry? Identify the width, depth and height (load height plus pallet height) of chosen pallets. Measure the accurate weight of each pallet.
Beam width: When placing pallets on beams, there should be at least 10cm clearance between upright columns and pallets, and between pallets. For example, if the pallet width is 100cm and two pallets are loaded per bay, then the beam width should be: 10cm + 100cm + 10cm + 100cm + 10cm = 230cm.
Beam capacity: Beam capacity hinges on pallet weight and the number of pallet loaded. For example, if pallet weight = 1000kg with two pallets per level, then beam capacity should be no less than 2000kg (1000*2).
Frame depth refers to the distance between loaded beams. Usually, a properly stored pallet should overhang the beams by approximately 8cm both in the front and in the back, allowing the beams to carry the full weight of the pallet. Thus, if pallet depth = 120cm, frame depth = pallet depth - 2*8cm = 104cm.
There should be at least 45cm distance between ceiling (or your sprinklers) and your products. Besides, the height that your material handling equipment can reach should be taken into account. Within your forklifts’ accessibility, we suggest that your rack system should reach as high as it reasonably can to optimize the utilization of vertical space, even if it exceeds your present needs.
Since pallet racks are durable products, it is favorable to consider further development in the future when designing pallet racks. In addition, the difference in the costs between a 4m frame and a 5m frame is negligible compared with the total cost of your project.
