Rack Rating


What weight can I place on my pallet racking?
Pallet racking is rated on both upright frames and on beams. Assuming that each of your pallets are carrying 1000Kgs (Diagram 4.1) of product and you have 3 levels of 2 pallets on each shelf then your beams need to be rated to 2000Kgs and your upright frames need to be rated to 6000Kgs.

Here’s an illustration to show how rack rating works:
