About Pallet Rack Supports

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.

Pallet support resting on two beams

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.

Benefits of Pallet Rack Supports

Adding pallet rack supports to your racking system comes with some
unique benefits.

Increase Worker Safety

By adding supports, you can add to the overall structural integrity of your racking systems and limit accidents related to improper pallet storage.

Odd Item Storage

With specialty pallet rack supports, like drum cradle/wheel rack supports, you can store a variety of items on your pallet racks that would otherwise require a different storage system.

Easy Installation

Installation of pallet rack supports is fairly simple. In some cases, you’ll just need to drop supports in at the right location on the rack.

Rack Protection

While supports protect inventory, they also add to the structural integrity of your racking system and help prevent deflection.

Better Workplace Efficiency

With rack supports, forklift operators can work with more confidence, especially when loading pallets at deep or high elevations.

What Do You Need?

Determining your storage requirements is the first step in selecting the appropriate pallet support system. Consider the following aspects:

  • Inventory Needs: Assess your inventory. What kinds of products need storage? Do you only need to store palletized loads, or do you need more flexibility? This can help determine if you need supports or wire decking.
  • Racking Type: Rack supports need the right beams for proper installation. Always double-check to make sure your beams are the right dimensions and style to accommodate support installation.

Your Budget

Budget is always a top concern when sourcing new equipment. Here is what you need to know:

  • Number of Supports: Depending on your needs, you may require multiple supports per pallet position. Be sure to take into account the total number of supports you need when sourcing equipment.
  • Wire Decking or Supports?: While wire decking is often more expensive than supports, it could be a better choice depending on your inventory needs. Be sure to evaluate long-term costs of replacing worn supports to get a more comprehensive total cost.
