Choosing a Pallet Rack that Fits Your Needs
Whether new or used, purchasing a pallet rack at Yankee Supply can mean huge savings! Yankee Supply has a large inventory of both new and used pallet racks in a variety of different styles and sizes.
The key to purchasing the right pallet rack is first to determine which style will ultimately serve all of your needs. What are you looking to store? Is there a particular size that you have in mind? How many pounds will each level be holding?
For instance, the Bulk Storage style is used for storing large, bulky items that are loaded by hand only. Each level will hold up to 1,000 pounds.
For heavy duty racking, the Selective style is ideal for handling large, palletized loads of up to 10,000 pounds per level. It is handled only by power equipment. If you’re looking for a pallet rack that will handle denser loads, try the Drive-In style. They are great at handling compressed, palletized loads. However, Drive-In style pallet racks have minimal access and can only be loaded by machine.
Storing long, flat items is made easy with the Cantilever style pallet racks. Sheets, bars or tubes of up to 2,000 pounds can easily be loaded by hand or machine.

A shelf is a flat horizontal plane which is used elsewhere to hold items of value that are being displayed or stored. A shelf is raised off the ground and usually anchored/supported on its shorter length sides by brackets. It can also be held up by columns or pillars.
A shelf can be attached to a wall or other vertical surface, be suspended from a ceiling, be a part of a free-standing frame unit, or it can be part of a piece of furniture such as a book case or entertainment center.
Usually two to six shelves make up a unit, each shelf being attached perpendicularly to the vertical or diagonal supports and positioned parallel one above the other. Free-standing shelves can be accessible from either one or both longer length sides. A shelf with a hidden internal bracket is termed a floating shelf.
The length of the shelf is based upon the space limitations of its sitting and the amount of weight which it will be expected to hold. The vertical distance between the shelves is based upon the space limitations of the unit’s sitting and the height of the objects; adjustable shelving systems allow the vertical distance to be altered. The unit can be fixed or be some form of mobile shelving. The most heavy duty shelving is pallet racking. #usedshelves #industrialshelving #shelving_YSC

What do you look for when shopping for pallet racks? Strength, rigidity and impact resistance are very important. They may be called upon to store incredibly heavy loads.
