Pallet rack

What is a pallet rack?

Pallet racking is used in logistics to store unit loads on loading aids. These aids are usually pallets, but can also be pallet cages, for example. The good thing about them is that they can be loaded with a large number of different goods and are therefore industry-independent. A warehouse with pallet racking can therefore serve many sectors at the same time.

Pallet racking consists of uprights and storage compartment heights. The supports, also known as uprights, are usually provided with a perforated grid. The compartments are then inserted into this. The different levels can be adjusted individually, allowing pallets loaded to different heights to be stored. If a pallet rack is over 12 meters high, it is called a high rack.

How can pallet racking differ?

Pallet racks can be assembled and set up in different ways. This results in different storage systems:

  • The multi-space system in the warehouse: several pallets are placed next to each other in a compartment, which also provides space for wider loading aids
  • The single-bay system in the warehouse: only one pallet per storage bay
