Also known as cross bars, pallet rack supports are designed to drop over the horizontal load beams of a selective pallet racking system. They safely support the weight of the pallet load and are often a more cost-effective choice than wire decking.
There are a few types of pallet rack supports. In terms of style, you’ll find flanged supports and flush style supports. Flanged supports fit over the top of the front and rear step beams and often come equipped with pre-drilled holes for tek screws. Flush type supports set down flush into the step of the pallet racking beam instead of flanging over the edge/face of the beam.
Within the flush-type support category, you have several connection types. Top-hat style supports have pre-drilled holes similar to flange supports. Snap-in style supports, on the other hand, snap, or roll, into the slotted holes in the beam’s step.
Additionally, you’ll find rack support in both roll-formed and structural steel materials as well as specialty style supports that can cater to specific inventory needs. For example, a drum cradle support will allow you to store drums, wheels and rims securely.
