The characteristics and application of pallet racking
Pallet racks, also known as beam racks or cargo racks, are usually used with various pallets and forklifts. They have a simple structure and are mainly composed of columns and beams. The column is cold-rolled and processed by a continuous punching and rolling mill. The column piece is a fabricated structure. The crossbeam and the column are plug-in connection, and are equipped with a safety pin with strong self-locking ability to ensure the use on the shelf and the operation of the forklift. The safety and reliability of the connection between the beam and the column during the process. The uprights are connected to the ground through anchor screws to ensure the stability of the shelf in use. The shelf height is usually 75mm and the pitch can be adjusted arbitrarily, and the carrying capacity of each layer of the unit shelf can reach 4000 kilograms; the goods are placed on the pallet, and the forklift equipment carries out the storage and retrieval operation, which is convenient and flexible for storage. The size of the pallet rack is determined according to the size and weight of the stored goods and the size of the matching pallet. For example, the size of the matching pallet is 1200*1200. Two pallets are placed on each layer. Each pallet does not contain a pallet with a height of 1000. Normally a unit shelf The length and width dimensions are 2700*1000, and the net height of each layer is about 1400. The unit shelf span is generally within 4m and the depth is within 1.5m. Generally, the shelf height of high-level warehouses is within 12m, and the shelf height of super-high-level warehouses is generally within 30m (such warehouses are basically automated warehouses).
The reason why pallet racks are one of the more widely used types of racks in all storage racks is that their prices are relatively low, they can be applied to the access of various goods, and the access methods can be arbitrary.
In addition, pallet racks can be transformed into other rack types by adding some components. For example, adding beams and laminates on the ground floor can become laminate racks. Adding beams and fluent strips can become fluent racks. The construction of shelf steel platforms and so on on the basis of it provides a lot of convenience for the later shelf transformation of many pallet shelf customers. However, pallet racking also has its shortcomings. It is limited by the use of forklifts of different types and sizes, and a large number of forklift channels (from about 3 meters to more than 5 meters) need to be set up in the site, resulting in a higher utilization rate of the site than other rack types. There are many accessories for low-pallet racks, such as corner guards used to protect the racks, I-shaped blocks, single-shaped blocks, mesh laminates, wood laminates, etc., to increase the force area of the goods and pallets, to protect the safety of the goods Back block back nets, etc., these accessories can greatly improve the stability and safety of the goods in the pallet racking, so that the pallet racking can better serve our customers.
