Selective Pallet Racking

Selective pallet racking is the most commonly found pallet rack system in warehouse storage facilities today. Selective or standard pallet racks provide easy product inventory management and direct access to pallets.

Pallet racking could either be single-leveled or with multiple stack levels. Constructed with uprights and beams, these racks have added safety features such as wire mesh decks and safety cross bars. This type of system provides incomparable protection against damage, tampering or accidental disconnection.

This storage method is very easy to organize and use because it makes putting and taking things off the stacks easy.

Different Types of Selective Racking

Selective racking is available in two styles, roll formed steel and structural steel.

Roll-Formed Steel Selective Pallet Racks

This is the most common type of selective pallet racking because of its adaptability. Roll-formed steel racks are made with lighter and more standardized materials. The components of a roll-formed steel rack can easily be assembled by locking the parts into place. A roll-formed steel rack can always be adjusted if the need arises.

  • The racks are made from high-quality materials
  • The racks are durable
  • They require minimum maintenance
  • They are easy to install
  • They are least expensive

Structural Steel Selective Pallet Racks

Structural steel selective pallet racks are designed to retain their form despite the activities they are used for. Unlike the roll-formed racks that can be assembled and taken apart, structural racks are made by welding the trusses and attaching high-capacity beams to the trusses with nuts and bolts so that the racks are sturdy and cannot be taken apart easily.
