Rack Knowledge 2 -heavy Duty Racking
Dec 05, 2018


Heavy-duty shelves are the most commonly used type of shelf, with each layer bearing more than 500Kg, the name is derived from it. It has good picking efficiency,
It can store heavier items but has a lower storage density. Heavy-duty shelves, also called tray-type shelves, have the characteristics of large bearing, wide adaptability, mechanical access, high selection efficiency, but the space utilization is general. Widely used in manufacturing, third-party logistics and distribution centers, etc., it is suitable for a variety of small-volume items, but also for a small variety of large-volume items. Such shelves are most commonly used in high-bay warehouses and ultra-high-end warehouses (most of the shelves in automated warehouses use such shelves).

Main feature

1. Usually the goods are stored in the shelf and stored in the shelf through the unit assembly equipment such as pallets and storage cages. The load per unit is generally less than 4000kg, and each unit usually has two units.

2, is one of the most common and widely used shelves, suitable for most warehouse or product goods.

3, with 100% of the goods optional picking characteristics. Handling machinery such as forklifts can reach any location for storage operations, storage operations are convenient and fast!

4. Store operations with mechanical handling equipment.

5, the unit shelf span is generally less than 4m, the depth is less than 1.5m, the low and high warehouse shelf height is generally less than 12m, the ultra-high warehouse shelf height is generally less than 30m (such warehouses are basically automated warehouses, the total shelf height is Several sections are composed of columns within 12m).

6. The height of each layer can be freely adjusted by an integral multiple of 75 mm.
Heavy-duty (beam-type) shelves are generally made of cold-rolled profiled steel. The columns are made of 80 (90) x 60 (70) Ω steel surface punched with diamond-shaped holes, and the beams are connected by 80x50-100x50-120x50-140x50-160x50 holding beams. In general, pallets are used instead of laminates to facilitate forklift handling. The design of the layer load is 1 ton to 5 tons, the surface is electrostatically sprayed, the waterproof rust and corrosion resistance is stronger, the safety factor is high, the plug-in combination does not require screws and welding, the assembly is very convenient, and the space area is fully utilized. Warehousing capacity.


The heavy-duty shelves are assembled by columns, beams, cross braces, diagonal braces and self-locking bolts, which can effectively prevent the shelves from being unstable after the bolts are loosened. The beams are made of special cold-rolled P-type closed beams; the structure is simple, reliable and light. The bearing capacity is strong and the cost is low; when the column card is connected with the column, it is equipped with a special design safety pin, which can ensure that the beam will not fall off under the impact of external force; the layer board adopts the strip layer made internationally and has strong bearing capacity. It is resistant to wear, simple to replace, and low in maintenance cost.

Installation method
First, the horizontal pull (cross support) and the diagonal pull (straight support) are screwed onto the column. The assembled two column pieces (one column piece = two columns + several horizontal pulls + several diagonally pulled) are erected on the ground, and the distance between the two pieces of the column is adjusted to the length of the beam and then the beam is installed.
When installing the sub-frame, the column piece is first installed, and then the distance between the assembled column piece and the side column piece of the main frame is adjusted to the length of the beam, and then the beam is installed.

1. Fully assembled structure, free combination, easy to install and disassemble.
2. The column is formed by folding the hot rolled plate at multiple angles, so the load capacity of the shelf is large.
3. The column is a prefabricated structure, and the steel bar is inserted and connected between the beam and the column, and is locked with a safety key to prevent falling off.
4. The column has an adjustment hole distance of 75mm, which can be adjusted according to the height of the cargo.
5, suitable for high storage of materials, can make full use of the space location of the warehouse to achieve the purpose of material classification management, can be used with forklifts or stackers.
