Title: How to Order Pallet Rack
Presenter: Senior Rack Design Specialist Brian Koski
Another question we get is, “How do I figure out how many beams and uprights do I need to rack 100 feet of rack?” Just use 100 feet as a theoretical example.
So you have the hundred feet, we’ll assume 8 foot Bays, 8 foot clear between the uprights. So the way I do it is you just take 100 feet divide by eight, i’ll come up with 12 bays. 12×8 equals 96 so that’s 96 feet of actual beam width. But we are going to need 13 uprights to make those 12 bays. So there’s three, most uprights are 3 inches wide. 3×13 is 39 inches. Which is 3 foot three. Our overall run is 99’3″ so we will stay within our 100 feet. Now there’s 12 bays depending on how many beam levels you have will take an easy example and say there’s five beam levels. Which is 10 beams overall12×10 = 120 beams which if you use wire decking it’ll be 120 decks as well.
