What’s the pallet racking height do I need?
Three factors for the right racking height:
- Warehouse storage density required. If you need a lot of product in your warehouse then definitely utilise its full height. If you don’t have a high density requirement then going too high with your racking is negative. The time and skill required in forklifting to high racks is not required when you can simply utilise lower racking.
- Forklift reach. Make sure your forklift tynes reach the height of your racking and your forklift is rated to lift pallet loads to that height.
- Height of your warehouse. It is recommended to leave a clearance of 1 metre between the top pallet and you warehouse ceiling
