Pallet Racking

Features of Pallet Racking

Pallet racking is a flexible industrial storage solution and is strong, durable, easy to assemble and reliable.  Our pallet racking systems can be set up in various ways and can handle any heavy-duty storage application.  We will help you choose the right type of pallet racking system for your needs depending on:

  • The type of goods and stock keeping units (SKUs) you need to store
  • The amount of floor space available for the racking installation
  • The speed of throughput and pick rate
  • The type of handling equipment used

We recommend arranging an on-site meeting so we can assess your requirements.

Popular warehouse racking options include wide aisle, narrow aisle, very narrow aisle and double deep. You can learn more about each type below.
