Sometimes referred to as republic pallet rack, keystone pallet rack is named for the shape of the holes in its uprights. The system’s beam clip hooks have square rather than round tops for additional strength and safety. This type of pallet rack was once much more common, but it is still widely used in the industry. If your company currently has a keystone/republic system or you need a strong strength-to-weight ratio, this solution may work best for you.
In a keystone system, the columns feature solid corners, and keystone clips are inserted into the areas of least stress so that the system can bear a high load capacity. The unique design decreases the overall amount of stress on a pallet system and protects against injury and product damage because if torn metal. A keystone pallet rack also uses U-shaped braces in a Z-pattern to add increased strength.
