Pallet rack beams provide support for pallet racks to assure the racks have adequate support for the weight of the products stored on them, ensuring they don’t bow or create an unsafe condition. Racking beams are made from heavy-gauge, powder-coated steel for strength and durability. Warehouse racking beams are available in multiple lengths suitable for almost any warehouse layout and product mix.

Warehouse racking beams enable a safe warehouse environment, helping to prevent both safety issues and inventory damage. The right beams allow you to store material safely and securely while allowing complete accessibility for material handling equipment.
