Pallet Rack – Improve Your Storage Efficiency
The space you have available for storage doesn’t just include floor space. When things get tight on the ground, most buildings still have plenty of unused vertical space. All you have to do is look upward to see that most of the available space in a building is higher than we can reach.
Without pallet rack, you can only stock items as high as you can reach. Warehouse racking systems make it possible to tap into your unused vertical space, making your storage more efficient. Many customers come to us with plans to buy or rent additional storage space, when all they really need to do is make better use of their current space. Our job is to help them do that.
We help you improve your storage efficiency by providing a way to utilize vertical space. As a major distributor of in-stock pallet racking, we have the products and know-how to help you reach your storage goals. We’ll leverage our large inventory of both new and used pallet rack to ship orders within 24-48 hours. Our popular brands include Ridg-U-Rak, Steel King, and more.

Pallet Rack Safety
Pallet Rack Weight Capacity
A common mistake when purchasing pallet rack is underestimating pallet rack weight capacity needs. Industrial pallet rack beam capacity can be calculated by using your single heaviest pallet load weight and multiplying that by the number of pallet positions per beam level.
Example: 96″ beams with 3000 lb pallets stored on them need to hold a total of 6000 lbs capacity per pair (3,000 x 2 pallets per level). Standard pallet racks are generally manufactured to hold 2500 lbs per pallet position. Once the beam capacity is estimated, the required frame capacity must also be calculated.
The estimated pallet rack frame capacity requirement can be found by using the capacity per beam level on your rack and finding out the maximum vertical beam spacing that the system will be using. Beam spacing needs to be measured from the top of one beam level to the top of the next beam level.
Example: if there’s a 48″ clear between your rack beams when using 4″ high beams, the frame capacity should be calculated using 52″ beam spacing. You’ll add the beam height to the overall spacing.
Attention – Pallet Rack Capacity Warning
Pallet rack capacity needs should be determined by a pallet rack professional for each application. It should not be roughly figured or estimated by an untrained person. We always recommend professional assistance when purchasing pallet rack and calculating pallet rack weight capacity needs to ensure the safety of personnel and equipment. This information was written to help clients gain a general understanding of how pallet rack capacity is calculated.

How to Measure Pallet Racking
Pallet Rack Cross Beam Information:
- How to find the right pallet rack beams?
The correct beam length for your application is calculated by adding together the widths of the pallet loads, 5″ side clearance between the uprights and pallets, and a 6″ space between pallet loads.
Example: pallet width= 40″
40″(Pallet) + 5″ (Side clearance) + 40″ (Pallet) + 5″ (Side clearance) + 6″ (Between Loads) = 96″ Beam
Beam measurements: Length equals the total distance between uprights. Height is measured from the top to bottom of the front side of the beam.
Pallet Rack Upright Frame Information:
- How to find the right pallet rack uprights?
Capacities are based on 48″ beam spacing. Depth of the frame should be 6″ less than the pallet length. For example, a 48″ deep pallet requires a rack with 42″ depth.
Frame measurements: Frame height = (height of pallet + height of beam + 4″ vertical clearance) x number of levels.
