Quick Facts About Selective Pallet Racking

Learn more about selective pallet racking by reading through these quick facts!

Selective pallet racking is a great way to utilize all of the vertical height in your warehouse space while still maintaining flexibility to pick every product or SKU.

Selective pallet racks can be made to accommodate pallets of all sizes and weights as well as boxes or cartons.

There are two major elements to selective pallet racking: frames and beams

Stocked frame sizes are 42” deep and range from 8’ to 20’ tall. The most common beam size is 96” long to suit a standard 40” wide x 48” deep pallet. We also stock 48”, 108”, 120” and 144” beams.

It's important to also remember that selective pallet racks can be either roll-formed or structural and arranged in either single or back-to-back rows in a warehouse or distribution centre.

Mesh decks provide flexibility in the product that is being stored

An important element to consider is the use of warehouse accessories such as safety bars or wire mesh decks. A safety bar runs perpendicular to the beams and helps to prevent a misplaced pallet from falling between the beams. Typically, we supply 2 safety bars for each pallet position.

When using wire mesh decks, we typically use two to span a 96” beam. Each has a capacity of 2500 LBS UDL and will support just about any item from pallets to boxes. Both safety bars and wire mesh decks are part of our stocking program.

When planning to add Selective Racking to your warehouse, don’t forget to budget for all necessary engineering required!

Some municipalities require a permit to erect selective pallet racking. While some cities do not require a permit, the Ministry of Labour requires Pre-Start Health and Safety Review (PSR) or a stamped engineered drawing. This may involve a site visit by the engineer to load rate all of your racking and can range from $2,500 - $3,000.00.
