Ridg-U-Rak 48-Inch Pallet Support Bar
Our Ridg-U-Rak 48-inch pallet support bar offers a simple, hassle-free way to provide greater support for product storage and shore up beam levels. The Ridg-U-Rak flanged 48-inch pallet support bar has a weight-bearing capacity of 1,320 pounds per pair, allowing support for all but the heaviest of loads.
Pallet supports are an ideal solution for warehouse operators looking to increase the weight capacity of their beam levels without outfitting their rack system with wire decking. Support bars provide greater strength than plywood and promote airflow and sprinkler access throughout the warehouse.
Pallet support bars, also known as crossbars, are an easy, cost-effective way of ensuring your product has the support it needs. Our flanged Ridg-U-Rak pallet supports can be quickly installed by placing them on two adjacent crossbeams, creating a strong support channel that spans the two beams. Typically, two pallet support bars are used per pallet position. Not only do support bars provide an additional layer of support for pallets, but they also keep pallet rack cross beams “tied” together, helping to prevent any deflection or sagging that could weaken the overall capacity of the shelving level. For this reason, it’s generally recommended to have at least one pallet support bar in place at the midline of a beam level greater than 114″ in length.
