Structural racking performs extremely well in refrigerated and freezer applications, as well as other environments. Because of their ability to handle high capacities, these racks are well suited for heavy traffic systems. These racks can safely handle loads of up to 50,000 pounds per day!
Structural racking can also help to reduce impact damage from fork-lifts even in ambient temperature conditions as it is far more abuse-resistant. The heavy construction means the upfront cost is more than roll-formed racking but it does not need continual repair so the cost is actually less in the long run.
Advantages of structural pallet racking:
Structural racking is constructed with thicker steel allowing more abuse before becoming permanently deformed.
Worker safety is increased due to a reduction in capacity loss when damaged, as well as beam-to-frame connections beign safer due to bolting.
Repairs can sometimes be made in place without replacement of upright frames.
Structural racking is a more efficient and economical design as heights increase.
