A Closer Look – Pallet Rack System Details

All selective pallet rack levels contained inside waterfall design wire deck, useful for storing non-palletized inventory.

Warehouse safety is always top priority, particularly for fast-paced food distributors where damage can be more prevalent. For added damage resistance, the pallet rack systems were designed with end-of-aisle rack protection, rack guards, and accessories. Pallet rack safety netting was affixed for the rear of the 2-deep push-back rack for enhanced safety of workers below. Additionally, inside-area perimeter guard rails and proper rack capacity placards were placed as per RMI guidelines at the end of the aisles to prevent system overloading.
