Racks are used for the storage of goods
Racks are available in various constructions, for example:
Fork lift trucks can enter this type of rack and stack loads in depth as well as in height levels. This increases the overall storage capacity in a given area.
These racks have a (usually) 3-degree pitched rolling surface. Pallet loads are loaded on the high side and unloaded on the low side of the pitched storage level. This method assures a first-in-first-out storage concept.
Regular rack frame with uprights and load beams are then fitted with a decking between load beams and offer solid area for the storage of non-palletized goods.
Special racks for the storage of long load such as pipes or bar stock
are for the storage of palletized goods. Rack uprights are connected to the load beams and form a solid structure for the storage of pallets.
