Design features of pallet racking
The pallet rack design basis is bearing vertical frames or racks and horizontal crossbars (traverse). Such a collapsible system can consist of several levels due to the possibility of adjusting the height of the mounting beams. Beams are attached to the racks with special locks on the hooks. The use of such fastening provides high speed of installation works and reliability of the racking system.
Dimensions and types of traverse pallet system
For the rack production there used hot rolled carbon steel, which allows forming the profile getting up to 12 bends. Such a number of stiffeners in the cross section make the front pallets racks a reliable construction with high inertial strength and anti-shock performance.
Rack holds up to 18 tons
Dimensions and types of rack beams
Traverses are made of S-shaped steel profiles welded together. With a sufficiently small own weight, the beams are characterized by high loading capacity for up to 4.5 tons. The traverse clamps are made of galvanized steel and serve to prevent accidental detachment of the beam from the frame
Maximum load per pair of traverse is 4500 kg
Pallet Racking Protection
Rack protection is a prerequisite for the safe operation of pallet racks. We recommend installing not only end protection on the row, but on each rack separately. You can read more about protection here.
When a loader collides with a rack, an emergency situation may occur, which will lead to a complete fall of the entire racking system. To prevent this, the protection is installed. It absorbs entire impact and the carrying frames remain unscathed, and the damaged safety element is easy to replace at low price.

Installation of racks, assembly and installation of warehouse equipment
Installing a racking system is a complex and time-consuming process, when each mistake can become very expensive, especially when it comes to assembling and installing complex systems for pallet racking and mezzanines. We recommend that you immediately entrust this to professionals and not risk it. Our installation teams with extensive experience in the assembly and installation of racks throughout the country.
We offer assembly and installation services for shelves of any complexity: from simple shelving racks to class A warehouses. Our company has long been specialized in large and complex turnkey projects.
Our company in addition to installing racks offers the manufacture of racks for any task:
Fast and high-quality installation
The installation process is optimized and divided into several gradual stages, which ensures the efficiency of the installation team while maintaining the construction high quality.
The field crews of installers work throughout the country. These are skilled specialists with experience in assembling and installing racking systems for over 10 years.
Assembly and installation of racks includes a number of steps.
The first step is to perform preparatory work. It is necessary to make sure that the floors are even and have sufficient strength, and the deviations do not exceed the established norms.
It is necessary that the rack equipment is not subjected to deformation, and also has a high rate of stability and reliability.
Racking frames assembly
Then begins the rack assembly process. The first goes the frame. High-strength hardware is used for their fastening (strength class not less than 8.8). After that, the assembly and installation of vertical frames and horizontal beams is performed. Next, align the rack rows.
The racking frames are fixed to the floor and to the walls using anchor bolts. Thus, the racking systems are given maximum stability. Rack rows are connected, followed by the protection installation on the rack.
A prerequisite for the warehouse where the loading equipment works is to equip the shelving racks with special protection. This will prevent the racking system from falling when the loader collides with the frame and ensure the safety of both cargo and personnel.
The benefits of using security
- Prevent falling racks after contact with equipment;
- Increase staff security;
- Extending the life of the racks;
- Ability to use different types of protective systems.

Single and double row protection
|Available protection height||mm||up to 500|
|Thickness of the metal chipper||mm||up to 5 mm|
|The end protectors length of the frames||not limited|
|Anchorage to the floor and walls||anchorage|
|Available finishing elements||powder-polymer coating RAL2004|
We recommend shelving rack protection in warehouses with heavy loading machinery. This is a very important point to ensure the safety of personnel and stored cargo. After all, if the rack is not protected, then a single minor damage is enough to drop the racking system. Therefore, we strongly recommend installing racks stops.
Protective metal stops are often used not only to protect the racks, but also to protect pillars, corners, protect walls, as well as various production equipment.
We offer a warehouse protection of pillars of 2 types:
- Corner bump stop is in the form of “L” letter;
- Full bump stop (protection from 3 sides) – in the form of a “U” letter.
Wide production possibilities
We manufacture all types of protection in the warehouse storage racks, not limited to the diimension of the lot. Production capacity is sufficient for manufacture of metal products and steel thickness up to 5 mm.
The field crew of our installers is ready to quickly arrive at your facility and install pillar bump stops for your racks.
