What are Teardrop Warehouse Racks?

Teardrop warehouse racks (aka industrial shelving, pallet racks, or warehouse racking) are one of the more popular styles of pallet storage systems for the industrial storage of palletized objects used by distribution centers and business warehouses in the country today. One of the more significant reasons they are so popular is due to the “teardrop” punched post design. This particular design makes for an easy-to-assemble storage system with its use of a boltless beam conductor, which assembles the horizontal shelf beam to the upright, vertical end supports. Boltless connectors make for quick and simple assembly of shelf beams to the upright end supports without the need for clips, bolts, or other fasteners. The colors are also mostly uniform, with green uprights and orange beams, but they can come in a variety of colors.

What’s so Special About Teardrop Warehouse Racks?

Most rack manufacturers in the country utilize tearshop-shaped connector designs. Due to this standard, many of the most popular industrial shelving brands are interchangeable with one another, and can be mixed and matched for use together. The sheer utility of mixing and matching teardrop-shaped rack components from different manufacturers provides a unique advantage over less versatile designs. Versatility is often considered by many in the industry to be a key consideration when deciding on a pallet storage system to implement in your warehouse.
