Greystone Equipment Company Helps Storage Facilities Pick the Right Pallet Racks for the Job


Ambler, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/14/2015 -- Greystone Equipment Company provides storage solutions for manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers, apartments, schools, athletic clubs and more. Their diverse selection, such as Husky pallet racks and wire shelving systems, provide shelving solutions for every storage need.

Storage and distribution facilities use pallet racking systems to handle and store a multitude of different materials and products. While all pallet racks utilize a system of horizontal rows with multiple levels to allow for the storage of those products and materials, there are many varieties and sizes to choose from, and companies want to make sure they have the correct set to meet their needs. With this in mind, Greystone Equipment Company has prepared the following tips to help these facilities make the best choice for their businesses.

1. Greystone Equipment Company suggests that businesses know everything there is to know about the items they will be handling or storing. This includes the three-dimensional size and weight of every load.

2. The company also suggests knowing everything there is to know about the area in which the rack will be installed. What are the physical dimensions? The floor's load bearing capacity? Does the floor slope at all? How about the headroom? Keep in mind the column centerlines and size when considering the layout.

3. They recommend that storage facilities determine whether they can rest their pallets on beams alone or if a wire deck is necessary for support.

4. Finally, the storage equipment provider reminds facilities to consider the method being used to store and retrieve the loads. This usually entails a forklift, so companies should think about the aisle widths and right turn angle dimensions. They also remind business owners to include the pallet height when measuring the maximum lift height of their fork lifts, to make sure it will clear the beam.

Husky pallet racks have been recognized for their quality for over 45 years. Their upright frames can reach as high as 46 feet, and the Husky pallet rack's teardrop pattern is considered an industry standard. Greystone Equipment Company offers a variety of Husky's quality products, and their knowledgeable staff can help any company choose the system that is perfect for them.
