Regardless of whether you’re purchasing new or used pallet racking system, you’ll need to ensure that you’re investing in the system that is going to be the most suitable for the storage needs of your warehouse. There are some important things to consider before making a decision, all of which will help you to choose the right pallet racking system.
Types of Pallet Racking
- Dexion Racking
- Australian Standard
- Double Deep
- Drive In
- Heavy Duty Shelving
- Narrow Aisle

Can it hold sufficient load?
The load (weight) that the pallet racking system will be able to handle will depend on its design and configuration. Other factors to consider are whether you will be using single bay systems or continuous runs, the lengths you’d like each bay to be, and whether mesh desktops or MDF boards are to be placed on each layer or not. Above mentioned factors will play an important part in determining what the safe working loads of your pallet racks will be, and if they can’t safely take the weight that they need to take, you’ll need to go for a stronger or heavier-duty version.
If your pallet rack system is going to be put into service for storing goods that have high turnover rates, it can increase the chances of it being damaged because the higher rate of activity will cause it to wear out faster. Using a higher weight capacity will mean that it will be more durable, while also reducing the amount of damage that it could sustain in the event of a warehouse-related accident occurring.
Keep in mind about restrictions & limitations
You should also keep in mind about limitations and restrictions when you are planning to design pallet racking system for your warehouse. For example, if you currently have a forklift that can only lift to a maximum height of four meters, don’t install the pallet rack to a height of six meters – unless you plan to upgrade your forklift as well.
It is important to remember that certain types of forklifts are better suited to specific types of pallet racking systems. Meantime counter balance-type forklifts work best for Drive-In Pallet Rack Systems (DPR) that have medium aisle widths for low volumes, while reach-type forklifted are best suited to DPRs that have medium aisle width and slightly higher volumes.
Do you have a floor plan for your warehouse?
Before choosing a pallet racking system, you will need a practical floor plan for warehouse in your mind. This will help determine how many pallets you can store and how much floor area will be needed to do it. It is also important that the pallet racking system you choose won’t just fit into the space that you have allotted for it, but that they will also be safe and efficient as well.
