Top 3 Benefits of Using Pallet Racking in Your Warehouse

shelving and rack systems

Maximizing the storage capacity of your warehouse is crucial to improving your business’ efficiency and profitability. Pallet racking solutions are popular because they are versatile and bring a wide range of benefits to your business.

Every business has unique requirements, but if your company stores merchandise, it’s likely there is a pallet racking system that can enhance your workflow.

1. Effective Use of Space

Floor space is always at a premium in a warehouse environment. The available square footage reduces each time you store goods on the warehouse floor. With pallet racks, you can use the vertical space to increase storage capacity.

Building up is a cost-effective way to increase storage space. You can use a forklift to bring pallets down when they are ready for dispatch, and pallets on high shelves don’t take up extra floor space.

Because these racks are modular, you can add as many levels as you need and build higher during busy periods. You can use high-density pallet racks to store pallets behind one another. This system increases the amount of stock you can hold at one time and reduces the amount of aisle space required for loading and unloading the pallet racks.

2. Safety of Employees and Merchandise

It’s a business’ responsibility to protect employee safety. Pallet racks can increase heavy stock capacity and hold goods safely and securely. The upright frames are sturdy, and the popular teardrop design, or the alternative bolt securing mechanism, makes the shelving immovable. You can also add netting to prevent items from falling from a pallet.

After health and safety training, your staff is aware of how to work around various storage systems, which significantly reduces the risk of an employee suffering a workplace accident.

It is also important that your warehouse space is also a safe environment for your merchandise. Your customers entrust you with high-quality materials, and by using pallet racks, you can keep the goods safe from accidental damage.

3. Easy To Install

Warehouse storage should be easy to install, especially because you may need to move pallet racks to different locations as your needs change. A warehouse is a fast-moving environment, and during a busy period, you may need to increase your space-saving storage options by adding more pallet racking levels.

The straightforward design of pallet racks means you purchase racks as you need them. The extra modules can fit easily onto the existing structures to ensure there is minimal disruption to your daily operations.
