Teardrop Pallet Rack

Teardrop Pallet RackTeardrop pallet rack is constructed of cold rolled steel commonly referred to as roll formed. This racking structure involves an upright with open holes on its’ face that are the shape of a teardrop along with beams that have connectors with rivets that slide and lock into place on the uprights. This type of design allows for the simple connection of beams and uprights.  Most types of teardrop rack utilize a spring activated safety lock to prevent the beam from dislodging from the upright during loading and/or unloading.

Almost every manufacturer of roll formed pallet racking has a teardrop design. The designs across the various manufacturers have slight differences and variations, but for the most part are interchangeable and compatible.
