The main components and accessories of Drive in compact pallet racking systems are:
Upper longitudinal beam
The upper longitudinal beam joins the frames in the upper area crosswise, to secure the structure by creating gantries. The beams must be placed in all the compact racking aisles.
The horizontal brace is a metal component that reinforces the compact structure and is located at the top.
The frame is one of the basic elements of Drive in compact racking. These frames consist of 2 uprights, their corresponding diagonals, baseplates and fixing elements.
Forklift guide rail
This is a steel rail at floor level that runs along the whole aisle. Its objective is to guide the forklift when it enters the structure and protect it against possible impacts. It helps to separate the forklift from the Drive in compact racking.
Frame and upright protection
The frame and upright protectors protect the installation from possible damage due to impacts by the forklift.
The welded baseplate is an especially designed component for frames with the highest load and height.
The upright is the main element of the frame and is galvanised. The customer has available to them a wide variety of upright sections and lengths to adapt to their warehouse needs.
It is situated at the front of the pallet beam or pallet support rail and helps operators when depositing the unit loads. It also protects the structure against potential impacts.
Pallet beam or support rail
These are the horizontal profiles on which the pallets on each level of the Drive in racking system are supported. They are metal and are perpendicularly secured to the upright by means of the brackets.
Brackets are the metal components that support the support rails or pallet beams on each level, and therefore indirectly support the pallets. This component is secured to the upright.
Pallet backstops are preventive safety backstops and their main function is to prevent the pallet from falling at the back of the aisle due to any inappropriate manoeuvre.
