Cost of Lightweight Pallet Racking
The less raw material (steel) a pallet rack frame or beam uses, the less expensive it is. Since lightweight pallet racking is generally smaller, it also costs less. It does come with lower capacity ratings which, in many cases, isn’t an option. However, lightweight racking is more than enough for a wide range of low-capacity products.
To keep spending as low as possible, many customers will underestimate or round down when it comes to rack capacity and their storage needs. But warehouse safety is essential, and city/county warehouse safety standards play a part in capacity requirements.
At PRN, we recommend taking the safe route with a slightly higher rack capacity than anticipated. This way, our clients avoid unforeseen beam deflection or storage limitations in the future.
