How to Select the Right Rack: Teardrop Alternatives



Choosing Roll-formed Rack Alternatives to Teardrop

Today, we’re going to talk about how to select the right racking for your specific application. There are alternative options to Teardrop rack, that are still roll-formed racking and have the same capabilities as Teardrop in most cases.

Popular Roll-form Rack Styles

Ridg-U-Rak Slotted-style uprights and beams require no clip to secure the beam in place. We have a large selection of Ridge-u-rack in stock and ready to ship today.

Still very popular in the market today is a Keystone-style upright that also requires no clip to secure the beam, securing directly to the upright itself.  We have a good selection of it available and ready ship.

The next two styles of rack do require a clip to secure the beam to the upright. The first style is Speedrack style. We do have a lot of inventory available in the Speed-rack design at a lower price-point than you would see in a Teardrop or Structural-rack.

The next style is a Sturdi-Bilt Slotted upright, that again, requires a clip to secure the beam to the upright. This is still a popular design today and we have a good inventory of it available as well.

You may also consider T-Bolt style racking; very similar to the other Roll-form racking, but the beam actually bolts into the upright as the connection point.
