Pallet Racking: A Basic Overview

Pallet racks are a universal storage system used for organizing material that is stored on pallets (palletized). This style of rack enables users to maximize storage height while allowing them easy access to the palletized product. Most commercially available pallet rack systems are versatile and can be easily reconfigured after installation, making them a cost-effective solution for industrial, retail, stock, and general warehousing.

The basic components of a pallet rack system include upright frames, front and back beams, and cross beams. The upright frame serves as the vertical support. The beams, which are installed horizontally onto the frame, lock into the uprights, creating a secure location for the pallets to rest on. For added safety and convenience, additional accessories, such as wire decks, can also be installed. Along with providing a stable platform, wire decking also improves fire safety by allowing water from overhead sprinklers to pass through and protect against inventory damage.

Our new and used racking is built from high-grade industrial steel, ensuring longevity and durability under the most demanding conditions. From selective racking, which allows easy access to each pallet, to drive-in rack solutions that maximize storage capacity, our versatile range of pallet racking in NJ, NY, and PA caters to diverse needs.

Pallet Rack Installation Services

The installation process for a racking system involves careful planning and execution. It starts with the upright frame and progresses to adding the cross beams and wire decking, which together create a stable and secure shelving unit capable of handling heavy loads and high traffic.

At Diversified Rack & Shelving, our pallet rack installation services are designed to provide businesses in NJ, NY, PA, and beyond with efficient, reliable, and safe storage solutions tailored to their specific operational requirements. We utilize the latest software and technologies, including CAD (Computer Aided Design), to create detailed blueprints and 3D models of the proposed pallet rack system. These models allow us to visualize the final setup and make necessary adjustments before the physical installation begins, ensuring that every element is perfectly tailored to maximize efficiency and safety.

    FAQs About Our Industrial Steel Storage Racks

    We often receive inquiries regarding our new and used pallet racking in NJ, NY, and PA. Here are a few of the most common questions we hear:

    Our new and used pallet rack systems are constructed from high-quality industrial steel, designed for durability and strength. This material ensures that our racking can withstand the weight and wear of loaded pallets and the frequent activity of forklifts.

    Yes, our pallet rack systems are fully customizable and can be installed to fit various warehouse layouts. Before beginning installation, we will work with you to understand your specific needs and maximize available square footage while ensuring efficient access and operation. We also sell and install other customizable storage solutions, including mezzanines, shelving, and more.

    Yes! Expanding or replacing an existing pallet rack setup is straightforward with Diversified Rack & Shelving. Whether you’re looking to add another bay, replace areas with significant rack damage, or install additional accessories like wire decks or beam supports, our team can help. We’ll work with you to understand your growing needs and assemble your system accordingly, ensuring that the expansion or replacement seamlessly integrates with your existing setup in a cost-effective, productive manner.

    We recommend conducting regular inspections at least once a year or more frequently, depending on rack usage and load capacity. Regular inspection helps maintain the integrity of the rack and ensures the safety of warehouse operations. If you notice damaged uprights, beam or frame issues, or even minor dings and dents due to forklift contact, immediately remove all product from the location in question and do not use the rack until it has been repaired by a professional. If a beam or other essential component is too damaged, we may recommend replacing it entirely to protect people and products in your warehouse.

    Especially if you operate heavy machinery in your warehouse or storage facility, eventual rack damage is inevitable. While it’s tempting to tackle pallet rack repairs on your own using commercially available pallet rack repair kits, it’s essential to approach this with caution. Not all damage is superficial, and what might appear as a minor dent or a few missing bolts could compromise the structural integrity of the entire pallet rack frame. Moreover, installing parts from pallet rack repair kits requires a deep understanding of your pallet rack system’s design, as well as factors like load capacity and bolt torque. Improper repair or installation can cost your business money, cause additional damage to essential bolts and fasteners, and ultimately pose safety risks.


    Before you grab a pallet rack repair kit at your local hardware store or buy one online, you’ll also want to consider the warranty and compliance aspects of DIY repair. The pallet rack manufacturer may specify that a damaged rack must be repaired by certified professionals. Using a DIY pallet rack repair kit may void warranties or fail to meet regulations and standards, leading to steep legal and financial repercussions in the event of an accident.


    With all these factors in mind, significant repair or modification should be entrusted to the professional installers and technicians at Diversified Rack & Shelving. Our repair experts have the training, experience, and equipment to assess rack damage accurately, complete repair or replacement safely while taking steps to prevent future damage, and ultimately ensure that your warehouse complies with all relevant standards and regulations.
