Our Pallet Rack Beams Add Strength and Stability

The right pallet rack beams are a must-have item for your warehouse storage solutions because they provide support for the products you place on the pallet racking.

In order to keep your products safe from falling and breaking, you’ll want to make sure that your pallet racks have adequate support. In other words, you can do that by making sure you build your pallet racks with beams that are sturdy enough to handle the job you have in mind.

Calculating Necessary Beam Capacity

In order to know the size of the beam that you need, you’ll need to calculate the beam capacity required per beam level. Since you will always need two beams per level, you need to know that capacities are listed per pair, not for an individual beam.

Calculating the capacity of a beam isn’t too difficult once you know the proper way to do it: First, determine the weight of the heaviest pallet that you have and multiply it by the number of pallet positions you want per level of beams. As a result, this will provide you with an estimate of your desired beam capacity. The most common configurations have two or three pallet positions per beam level.

Beam Sizes

Once you have calculated your desired beam capacity, that number will be your guide for determining the size of beam you should purchase. The length, height (face size), and gauge of steel will all affect the capacity of the beam. Therefore, the chart on this page is a helpful guide to the measurements and weight capacity of each size of pallet rack beam.

Keep in mind that beam capacities are based on uniformly distributed static loads. For instance, if you are in an area with seismic concerns (ie, California, Oregon, Washington, and others), give us a call for a seismic review of your rack configuration.

Consequently, to be sure about the load capacity of your pallet rack system, contact us and ask one of our industrial shelving experts. We can help ensure that you select the correct beam size for your required capacity.

For durable, dependable pallet rack beams that are ideal for large capacities and high-density warehouse storage, choose Speedrack West!
