How to Select the Right Aisle Width for Your Warehouse Racking and Warehouse Shelving?

Making sure you choose the right size for your used pallet racking from Erect-A-Rack is absolutely essential. Get it done right the first time to avoid wasting time, energy and most importantly, money.

  • Step 1: Put one of your pallets on a forklift.
  • Step 2: Measure the length of your forklift while the pallet is on the front of it.
  • Step 3: Add 300mm to the full measurement you got in Step 2.

The measurement you end up with is the minimum width you can have your aisle in your warehouse, so do your research and find the best second hand pallet racking for this kind of space. Now you have the correct measurements for use on a traditional forklift, Erect-A-Rack will be able to help you with a storage solution, you only have to ask!

Second hand pallet racking FAQs

How wide is pallet racking?

Pallet racking is made up of two main components, the frames and the beams. The latter comes in several different sizes, these being: 1 pallet wide – 1372mm, 2 pallets wide – 2590mm and 3 pallets wide – 3658mm. It’s important to factor these measurements in when it comes to designing your warehouse layout.

How much weight can you put on pallet racking?

Pallet racking is available in a range of different load capacities. Factors such as the type and quality of the materials used will all impact how much a rack can hold. Australian Standard pallet racks can carry 500kg – 1,800kg. For safety reasons, it’s important that you do not exceed the outlined weight limit.

Should pallet racking be bolted to the floor?

Yes, all pallet racking should be fixed to the floor. In line with AS4084 – 2012, 2 fixings per base plate are needed or 4 fixings per each frame. Anyone that does not bolt their pallet racks to the floor is putting their team at significant risk and can face serious penalties as a result.

How much space do you need between pallet racks?

The amount of space that you need between pallet racks will vary, based on the size and shape of what is being stored. However, we recommend that you allow for at least 400mm between each rack. This will ensure that your team has ample room to access your site without any issues.

How high can you stack on a pallet?

Pallet racking frames are available in a range of different heights and can be customised based on your particular storage needs. As a general guide, you’ll want a frame height of at least 1.5 metres or the total height of your highest pallet + 500mm clearance from the ceiling.

What is the maximum height for a pallet?

The maximum height for a pallet is usually 1.8 metres. However other options are available. Keep in mind that safety, storage efficiency and accessibility are key considerations when it comes to warehouse design. You’ll also want to make sure that there is adequate space between your highest pallet and the ceiling of your structure.

How much does pallet racking cost?

This is entirely dependent on the scope of the warehouse pallet racking that you require. We can do any job, big or small. Warehouse pallet racking systems fully installed can cost anywhere between $5000 and $50,000. Get in contact with Erect-A-Rack today and we can give you a rough quote on your job.

How do you calculate pallet racking capacity?

Erect-A-Rack can provide you with the correct loading amounts when we install your system. There are weight loading signs that are available for your warehouse shelving.
