Title: Factors to Consider Before Installing a Pallet Racking System


1
Factors to Consider Before
Installing a Pallet Racking System
2
While installing a pallet racking, the efficiency
and storage of products in the warehouse is
always the top priority.
3
Selecting a suitable pallet racking system is a
multifaceted process with the need to consider
several compelling aspects.
4
Choosing the wrong kind of racking may adversely
affect the warehouse productivity and may also
lead to an expensive repair.
5
Here are some of the factors to consider before
installing a pallet racking system.
6
Cost and budget
7
Budget is the main constraint in the
installation of the pallet racking system that
affects the design and efficiency.
8
Try to avoid buying the cheaper racks as the
lowest price does not always equate to the best
value.
9
Always invest in the expertise of an experienced
warehouse solution provider who can install an
optimized pallet racking system.
10
Height floor space
11
It is important to measure and estimate the
accurate height and floor space available for the
installation of the racking system.
12
Right evaluation can help you to potentially
double the capacity of the racking system.
13
When the height of the warehouse is more, the
racking can dramatically increase the vertical
storage capacity at a cost-effective rate.
14
Storage density
15
The weight, quantity, and size of your Stock
keeping unit(SKU) helps to determine the right
pallet rack for your warehouse.
16
There are particular pallet racks for specific
industry needs that allows storing the heavy,
medium and light loads in an organized manner.
17
You may install push-backs, pallet flow,
drive-through, drive-in and double deep racks
when there is a need for storage of heavy
weighted goods.
18
Accessibility
19
The frequency of stock turnaround decides the
type of pallet racking system to be installed for
better accessibility.
20
The access to the racked products depends on the
type of goods, the rate of stock rotation and
movement and the operating systems for dispatch.
21
In case of a LIFO inventory control system,
drive-in or push back racks and for FIFO system,
pallet flow racks are the best suitable option.
22
Safety
23
Proper design and construction of the pallet
racking system is the most important aspect of a
successful project.
24
Safety is always the paramount concern while
installing the racking system.
25
Knowing that the racks are installed and
assembled in accordance with stringent guidelines
for loading and positioning adds more safety to
the products and people.
26
Durability maintenance
27
The durability and proper maintenance of the
racking is one of the important factors for the
busy warehouse environment.
28
Also the availability of the spare parts for any
of the damaged components in a cost-effective and
fast process is vital for the continued operation
of the warehouse.
29
Therefore, before deciding the best pallet
racking system option for your business, always
consider the longevity of the installed storage
solution.
