Selective pallet racking is a material handling storage aid system that provides efficient use of storage space for palletised loads. It is the most common pallet racking system in use today.
Pallet racking allows the storage of materials in horizontal rows with multiple levels.
Erect-A-Rack carries a wide range of selective pallet racking components and can design a selective racking system to tailor fit your specific space and budgetary requirements.
Our selective racking systems are compatible with all types and sizes of pallets (or skids) and may be used with any type of handling system.
Erect-A-Rack recommends selective pallet racking for clients looking to implement an inexpensive storage system with a high throughput rate and FIFO inventory management for many SKUs and low pallet quantities.
(If you need to accommodate trucks, please see the Erect-A-Rack selective pallet racking truck specifications outlined below.)

- Low volumes (up to 3000 pallets)
- Large range of Stock Keeping Units (SKU)
