used warehouse equipmentMany of our customers struggle with the idea of incorporating used equipment into their warehouse solutions at first.  This is because many other companies will store used warehouse equipment outdoors where beams and uprights are exposed to the elements and can often develop rust.  An advantage to working with Storage Solutions is that we store both our new AND used warehouse equipment inside our 330,000 sq. ft. warehouse to ensure that everything we sell has maintained structural integrity. Our goal is to make sure that your used pallet rack beams and used pallet rack uprights are of comparable quality to what you would purchase new.

Buying used can have many benefits.

1)  It’s COST EFFECTIVE!  Purchasing new warehouse equipment can be expensive.  When you purchase used warehouse equipment, you can get more for your money without having to worry about jeopardizing the integrity of your operation.

2)  AVOID LEAD TIMES.  When you purchase new warehouse equipment, there is always a lead time before manufacturers are able to produce and ship their product.  Whether you’re working within a small time frame or budget, purchasing used warehouse equipment is the perfect solution.

Whether it’s on a warehouse consolidation, purchasing new warehouse equipment or used warehouse equipment, or re-configuring a current operation, Storage Solutions has a solution for you.

Our team has installed equipment all over the United States, as well as Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Check out the map on our locations page to see some of our project locations!

pallet rackFor those of you that don’t know, yesterday, Sunday, June 3rd was National Repeat Day (yes, I said Repeat Day). National Repeat Day is a day for everyone to go out and do the things they love over again.  Go fishing for two hours instead of one, ride your bike in the morning then again in the evening, or eat your favorite dessert twice!

Well, one thing we love here at Storage Solutions is pallet rack, so to celebrate Repeat Day we are re-posting a previous Term of the Week blog.

This week’s re-term of the week is Pallet Rack!

Pallet rack is a structural storage system that is used to support high stacking of items or palletized loads. This storage system is designed to store materials on pallets.

There are many types of pallet racking but all types allow for the storage of palletized materials. In order to use the pallet rack system you need to have access to forklift trucks so that you can place the loaded pallets onto the racks for storage. Pallet racks are an essential element in most modern warehouses, manufacturing facilities, retail centers, and other storage and distribution facilities.

We use many types of pallet racking in our own warehouse. We also buy and sell new and used pallet rack beams and used pallet rack uprights.

If you are in need of pallet racking make sure to check out the clearance section of our website for more product availability, or contact our online sales team at 866.474.2001, and one of our knowledgable team members will be able to help you get what you need!

This Week’s Term of the Week:

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. Therefore, when a customer has existing teardrop racking in their facility they are not often restricted to only one manufacturers design of pallet racking when the need arises to add additional racking to their facility. The teardrop design of racking is the most interchangeable equipment across manufacturers in the industry which is why it is used by most customers in the marketplace.

Teardrop racking can be used in a variety of storage facilities such as garages, offices, storage rooms, warehouses, etc. It can also be manufactured to any size that fits the need of the customers products, and is available in a wide spectrum of colors.

Features of the teardrop rack:

  • Most common design in the marketplace
  • Compatible with most existing teardrop racking
  • Spring activated safety lock on most designs
  • Economical compared to the heavier design of structural racking
  • Wide variety of colors, sizes, and custom accessories to fit any function
