Other Rack Supported Structures

Almost any new warehouse designed for high density storage can be designed and built as a rack supported building. Comparisons of rack-supported vs. conventional buildings consistently favor rack supported with regards to maximizing storage and lowering SF construction costs.

Rack Supported Structures

  • Utilize less floor space
  • Have a lower initial investment
  • Allows greater asset depreciation per year
  • Can be structurally superior due to the loads spread across multiple frames
  • Have shorter construction schedules

Other applications include but are not limited to:

  • Small stand-alone storage buildings
  • Simple pallet racks with cantilevered roof
  • Custom designed systems
  • See our mezzanines page, for illustrations of mezzanines utilizing pallet racks as support structure.
