How to specify, improve, and learn about pallet racks
Fishbone Rack Aisle Layout
Explore an innovative pallet rack layout designed by researchers at the University of Arkansas, and Auburn University. This layout could lead to more efficient and productive distribution centers.
How Beam Loading Affects Rack Capacities
Most pallet rack beam capacities are based upon "evenly distributed loads". This refers to the front-to-back direction as well as horizontally along the beam width. But what does that really mean?
Seismic Rack Standards
Seismic racks are not just a consideration in California. Regions in northern New Jersey, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Memphis, St. Louis, Buffalo, and Atlanta all require pallet rack systems to be built to seismic specifications.
Seismic Zones & Pallet Rack
Know your seismic zones when laying out racks for your warehouse. The advent of higher-density storage in warehousing and other operations makes it important to use the correct zone rated racking
Selective Rack Configuration
Use our configuration guide for assistance in specifying the right beams and uprights for your selective pallet rack requirement.
Selectivty vs. Storage Density
What rack style fits you best? Choosing the right pallet rack for your application depends on what you want to do with it.

Upright Frame Capacity Calculation
You know the beams will hold your pallets, but is your upright strong enough to hold all your beams? Check out the upright capacity chart and guidelines.
