Q. What pallet rack accessories do you recommend?
A. We highly recommend rack protection to help guard against forklift damage to your uprights. We carry in-stock several types of column guards to protect the front of your uprights and end-of-aisle guards to protect the sides of your uprights from forklift operators who like to take short cuts.
Q. What accessories should I order with my uprights and beams?
A. Don’t forget to order wire decks or pallet supports to help stabilize your load on each beam level. If you are installing pallet rack back to back, make sure to include row spacers to connect the uprights to help stabilize and create a uniformly spaced row. Another popular accessory these days is capacity labels. In many jurisdictions these are a mandatory safety measure so employees don’t overload a beam level or bay of pallet rack.
Q. What accessories do I need when installing my pallet rack?
A. We recommend that you purchase floor shims to be placed under the upright footplate. Floor shims level the bay in areas where the floor may have a low spot. You will also need anchors to secure the uprights to the floor. The standard anchor is a 4 1/2” x 1/2” and one anchor should be installed per footplate in most cases.
