Pallet racking systems are the storage of palletised materials in horizontal rows with multiple levels that maximise the storage space of a warehouse. As complicated as they might seem, pallet racking systems consist of two components: The frames, and the beams, where these components are designed to store 2-3 pallets per level.

The standard configuration of the pallet racking system components is constituted of beams clipped into frames, where these beams can then be supported by timber decking, mesh decking, or support bars. Each case will require a specific configuration, and Teepee can help you to choose the best one for your case.

When it comes to choosing pallet rack systems for warehouse inventory management, there is a lot you need to consider besides just focusing on maximising your storage space. You need to take into consideration the following:

  • The floor capacity in your warehouse.
  • Height of the ceiling.
  • How often you will need to access the pallets.
  • The shelf life of the items you are going to palletise.


Based on these factors, you will be able to single out certain types of pallet racking systems and therefore select the right pallet racking for your business’s requirements.
