Whats pallet racking?
Selective pallet racking is designed to store pallets in a mechanical and functional way using forklifts. These forklifts access goods through aisles parallel to the racks.
Selective pallet is a logistical solution which can be adapted to the dimensions of the unit loads and the forklifts. Efficient, resistant, easy-to-assemble, and with simple load level regulation, this system adapts to any type of product, both by weight and by volume. This is an efficient and robust system for heavy loads.

Mark any obstacles: Obstacles included doors, columns, fire engine access, ceiling lamp and anything which need to consider on safety and reasonable arrangement.

 

 
Arrange the best location for your products: quick-moving products should be placed near to door or aisle that could take less time to retrieve them.

Identify the size and weight of your pallets: as the measurements will show you how height/width/weight of the racking you need to store your goods. Like the loading capacity per layer, frame/beam size, how many layer etc.

Check forklift turning radius : it will depends the side between each aisle. So you could maximize your available storage space

The safety thing you should know for pallet racking:
Dont overload your rack. Pallet rack loads aren’t just simple weight versus structure. The dimensions, shape, and size/density of the load as it sits on storage racks is absolutely critical to safe, effective warehouse storage.
To avoid incorrect or unsafe rack loading, it’s important to consider not only the weight, but also what type of load will be loading on , how it sits, and how that might affect the load-bearing.
 
How to preventing damage to your pallet racking
Most racking damage is caused by incorrectness operation, loverloading or incidents with forklifts.
We should use protector and crash barrier to protect our upright from forklift, It also requests the forklift operator with high skill during operating.
