Pallet racks improve the efficiency of warehouse operations by enabling more effective use of available space. Warehouse pallet racking helps warehouse managers make better use of vertical space because they can store materials on high shelves without risk. Pallet racking also makes warehouses neater, which improves efficiency and helps to prevent misplaced goods. Consistent use of racks for storage increases pick and put away time and improves the flexibility of existing space.

The only drawback to warehouse pallet racking is the high cost of buying new. That’s why many savvy warehouse operators buy used pallet racks.

Some warehouse operations have used pallet racking for sale. They may sell used pallet racks when they reduce space or close a warehouse. However, it is not a good idea to buy used pallet racking directly from the warehouse, because you cannot be sure of quality and fair pricing.

Most warehouse pallet racking is made of steel, which has a long life, so there is no risk in buying used pallet racks as long as you can be certain the racks have not been exposed to moisture, which can cause rust.

 

Rust reduces the strength and utility of pallet racking. If there is even a little bit of rust, it is likely to spread. This not only reduces the appearance of your warehouse pallet racking, it can damage the structural integrity.

Buying Guide for Used Pallet Racks

Used pallet racks, also known as steel racks, warehouse racks, and industrial storage racks, are a common sight in any warehouse or storage setting because, as their name suggests, they are used for storing pallets loaded with products. There are a number of different styles of pallet racks. Both new and used pallet rack systems come in many different sizes and capacities so that they can accommodate a wide range of pallet sizes and load weights.

Below, you’ll find descriptions of the four most common types and two common styles of pallet rack systems. You may also want to check out our page on How to Build Your Pallet Racking System.

Did you know that M-H-E offers Professional Warehouse Layout and Design Assistance for FREE?


Selective Pallet Racks
Selective pallet racking systems are the most common style of pallet racks on the market today. Their basic components are upright frames and rack beams. With selective pallet racks, all of your products are easily accessible from your forklift travel aisles, and you don’t have to move other products around to gain access. This saves both time and money. Additionally, each selective pallet rack bay can have multiple beam levels. Selective pallet racks are great for storing a wide variety of products that you need immediate access to at any given time.

Pushback Pallet Racks

Pushback pallet racking systems are great when you store a lot of the same products. A new or used pushback pallet rack system allows you to store your products 2-6 pallet positions deep. If you place pushback racks back-to-back, you can achieve up to 12 deep bulk pallet storage in your warehouse. This ability limits the number of forklift travel aisles needed in your warehouse and gains you 25%-65% more storage capacity in the same area. Pushback storage systems should be used for Last-In/First-Out (LIFO) inventory management.

Pallet Flow Pallet Racks

Used pallet flow racks is another racking system that maximizes the use of your warehouse space. Like the pushback systems, pallet flow racking is a high-density storage option (2-6 pallet positions deep) with fewer forklift aisles. This warehouse rack style is driven by gravity and can be used for fast-moving product with First-In/First-Out (FIFO) stock rotation. Their sloped shelves have heavy-duty skate wheels that allow palletized loads to flow forward to a picking position. These steel racks can also be combined with carton flow systems that use multi-level picking modules to split loads into boxes or piece parts.

Drive-In & Drive-Thru Pallet Racks

With drive-in and drive-through racking, density is the operative word. You can get up to 75% more pallet storage in the same space as with selective pallet racks. These steel racks maximize your available space, but they do require a lift truck. Drive-in and drive-through racks are best used for warehouse storage when you need a lot of storage density but don’t have a lot of variety. Drive-in racks are best suited for Last-In/First-Out (LIFO) inventory management and drive-through racks are best suited for First-In/First-Out (FIFO) stock rotation because they are accessible from either end.

Pallet Rack Styles

Teardrop Pallet Racking
When possible, teardrop pallet racking systems are the way to go. They are one of the most popular styles available, largely because their unique design requires no bolts, nuts, clips, or other accessories in the assembly process. You know what that means: simple and fast assembly! Teardrop is a style, not a brand, so you can often mix and match teardrop pallet rack components from different brands without compromising your system. When purchasing used pallet racks, it’s important to remember that flexibility is the key to getting the most out of your storage system.

Structural Pallet Racks
Like teardrop pallet racks, structural pallet racks is a style rather than a brand. Pallet racks made in this style are made of heavy duty materials and held together with nuts and bolts. As a result, a professional installation team should be contracted to set up structural pallet racking systems. Because of their impact resistance, this style of warehouse racks tend to be very popular in areas with seismic activity.

M-H-E Equipment Condition Guide
Material Handling Exchange sells pallet racks and other industrial storage racks in any of these three conditions:

Used/As-Is Equipment:
Our used/as-is equipment is your most economic choice for buying equipment. We vouch for the structural integrity of all used equipment we sell, but these racking systems have not been repainted or prepped in any way. Which means that they may have markings from their previous use.

Refurbished Equipment

All of our refurbished equipment has been rigorously reconditioned using a five-step process. This process ensures that each piece of equipment is in “like new” condition but with a considerably lower price tag. M-H-E’s reconditioning process involves these steps:

  • All stickers and markings are removed from the surface of the equipment.
  • Each component is inspected thoroughly for structural damage – if any damage is found, it is repaired or replaced as needed.
  • The equipment is cleaned and prepped for painting using the latest technology to remove any rust or residue without affecting the integrity or value of the metal.
  • The item is then painted and cured.
  • The equipment is cooled and is then sorted, packaged, and shipped to the client.

Used pallet racks, also known as steel racks, warehouse racks, and industrial storage racks, are a common sight in any warehouse or storage setting because, as their name suggests, they are used for storing pallets loaded with products.

How to Build Pallet Racking

Our trained sales people at MHE want to make designing the right pallet rack system for your operation as painless as possible. The information below details what you need to know for purchasing the right pallet racks the first time. If you need help in purchasing your pallet racks please don’t hesitate to give us a call.

How To Determine The Correct Length Of Your Pallet Rack Beams

The type of forklift you are using in your operation or the overall product widths of your pallet or palletized products will determine the proper pallet rack beam length for your operation.


Counter Balanced Forklifts

A Counter Balanced type forklift can be one you walk behind or one the Operator sits down. A counter balance lift , particularly the sit down type generally operates best in a minimum travel aisle width of 12 feet.

  • Consider the maximum width of your pallet or load whichever Is greater. Always give consideration to product hangover that Extends past the width of your pallets.
  • Next you determine how many pallets you want per beam level. 2 or 3 pallets wide is a typical configuration between the upright frames.
  • The typical distance between the upright frames and your loads should be 3”
  • Between the product or pallet edges you will typically leave 4”


Standard Outrigger or Straddle Outrigger Forklifts

Stand-up Narrow Aisle Forklifts are with outriggers typically work best in a minimum travel aisle width of 10 foot 6 inches.

  • Consider the maximum width of the forklift outriggers or load whichever is greater. Always give consideration to product hangover that Extends past the width of your pallets.
  • Next you determine how many pallets you want per beam level. 2 or 3 pallets wide is a typical configuration between the upright frames.
  • The typical distance between the upright frames and your loads should be 3”
  • Between the product or pallet edges you will typically leave 4”

 

Summary: In this example you will see a total of 10” of additional storage space for a Two (2) pallet configuration. If you are using a 3 pallet configuration you will have 14” of additional storage space. If for example your standard pallets are 40” wide and the product does not overhang the 40” width of the pallet, then you could chose a 90” long beam for your application. It is important to note that in order to give you flexibility, in a case where some of your pallets will or could have overhang, may we suggest a 96” long beam or a 144” long beam for a 3 pallet wide configuration. These are the most common size pallet rack beams used in storage applications today.

How To Determine The Correct Pallet Rack Beam Capacity

Simply take the number of pallets you will be storing per beam level Multiplied by the maximum load weight of each pallet to achieve The required beam capacity “per pair” of pallet rack beams. Example: 2500Lb Pallet weight x 2 pallets=5000lbs. You would need a beam rated at 5000lbs or More per pair of beams.

In a case where you are only going to have one beam level in your pallet Rack bay it is important to decrease the beam capacity by 15% to account for the reduced end fixity while Using only heavier beams 5 ½” face or greater which have a four hook connector late.

How To Determine The Correct Pallet Rack Upright Frame Depth and the appropriate Wall Tie or Row Spacer

  • Pallet Rack Upright Frame Depth:
    Your Pallet Rack Upright Frame should typically be 6” less than the overall length of your pallet stinger.
    Example: If you are using a 48” Long pallet then you would choose an Upright Depth of 42”. This will
    Allow 3” of overhang of your pallet in the front and rear of the pallet rack bay.
  • Row Spacer & Wall Ties:
    Row Spacers are used to space back to back pallet rack bays while providing rigidity in your pallet rack System. Wall Ties are used in some cases where you have single bays of pallet racking along a wall for example. -Typical Row spacer length is determined taking the load overhang and multiplying it by 2.
  • Pallet Rack Upright Frame Height:
    Start by adding your pallet height and the height of your product together. Next you will add 4” to allow your forklift lift and move the product safely from the pallet Rack system. This is called “Lift Off”. We recommend 6” of Lift Off at the top beam Level for added safety in avoiding ceiling obstructions such as lighting and sprinklers.
    *Please check your local fire codes for specific requirements. Next you add the Face size of the particular pallet rack beam you will be using. Now you take that total number and multiply it times the number of shelf levels you Require to get the upright frame height needed. Example: Pallet is 5” high, Product is 40” high , recommended “Lift Off” is 4” and your beam face if 4” high. This gives you a total Of 53” to the top of your first beam level. Multiply 53” times a 3 shelf level system and you will need an upright at a minimum of 159” or 13’3” high. Uprights are only required to go as high as necessary to accommodate our to beam level.
  • Pallet Rack Upright Frame Capacity:
    You first determine the total weight to be stored for all beam / shelf levels Example: 3 Levels at 5000lbs each =15,000lbs stored per pallet rack bay Requiring a minimum upright capacity of 15,000lbs. If our requirements are close to the maximum capacity me we suggest going to the larger capacity upright for added
    safety and assurance. Upright capacities go down based on the height of your first beam location/vertical spacing.
    Consideration the vertical beam spacing must be considered when determine the correct Upright frame required for your application. Corresponding drawing to the right obviously. If you have any questions on this will please let me know.
