With so many varieties of warehouse pallet racking Melbourne, how do you choose the right pallet racking for your situation? Global Industrial offers multi-level pallet racking systems to hold any type of pallet (known as ‘skids’ in some areas). There are various types including double deep racking, drive-in pallet racking, push-back, and pallet flow. We also stock an extensive range of selective pallet racking.
Selective Pallet Racking: Selective pallet racking allows easy access to products, making it suitable for an inventory that has a quick turnover. It’s typically the style of pallet racking recommended for distribution outlets, retail storage, and bulk storage.
Roll-formed pallet racking is perhaps the most common form, with its simple clip-in configuration. This style of pallet racking allows shelving levels to be readily adjusted to suit the different pallet rack requirements.
Second-hand pallet racking: Global Industrial offers a large selection of second-hand pallet racking. All pallet racking is thoroughly inspected before purchase and before resale to ensure there is no structural damage to the frames or beams.
Pallet racking accessories: To keep stock, and people safe or you just need to utilize the racking in a slightly different manner you may need additional accessories to your pallet racking. Global Industrial has all the warehouse pallet racking Melbourne accessories you could need, including vertical arm dividers, hose hangers, coil rack holders, cable racking holders, fork entry bars, front to back supports (FTB’s), pallet support bars, mesh backing and containment systems, mesh decking, upright protectors, steel mesh cages, safety signage and more.
Steel mesh for pallet racks: Steel mesh containment panels for pallet racking can help to protect personnel by lining racks along a designated walkway. They can also deter theft by burglary or robbery by way of creating a bonded area. It is typically constructed of high-voltage-welded steel mesh that has been zinc-plated and attached to the pallet racking structure. Steel mesh can be retrofitted to just about any pallet racking system available. Containment panels for pallet racking can be used to protect high-value items; many organizations only allow certain vetted employees or managers to gain access while keeping the area under surveillance. Steel mesh also allows for the ease of locating stock in the pallet racking system and is less likely to allow mold and mildew to damage products (compared to closed cupboards).
Mesh-backed pallet rack: You may also consider a pallet racking mesh-back system. By installing a stand-off post and then lining with mesh panels, you will help to prevent objects falling into a designated walkway or high-traffic personnel area. Safety is imperative; custom netting containment systems can also be designed for pallet racks to provide a barrier between each pallet level.
To minimize potential damage to pallet racking from a forklift, column protectors should be installed at any upright located at a gangway and aisle. Column protectors are most often made from steel, and they are designed to protect the rack and absorb a certain amount of impact in the event of a collision.
