Features & Benefits of Pallet Racking

Pallet racking is the most common storage solution for all palletised goods, with light to extra heavy-duty pallets that will increase your pallet storage capabilities. Pallet racks also provide access to each pallet within the system for quick pallet retrieval and can be used with virtually any type of forklift, including counterbalance and reach trucks.

BHD pallet racks are fully adjustable and modular systems that can provide maximum flexibility and have additional bays added at any time. The beams can be moved up or down as well as have extra beam levels removed or added easily without any tools required.

BHD’s Comprehensive Range

Examples of three of the most universal pallet rack shelving systems we offer include:

Selective Pallet Racking

The most common type of warehouse racking, selective pallet racks are efficient and can be designed for pallets of virtually any size or weight. These systems provide complete pallet storage selectivity and easy access to products, which improves the efficiency of supply chain management. BHD Storage Solutions is capable of supplying high-quality and heavy-duty selective systems for pallet racking installation in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney up to 10-metres high, together with cross beams that will handle storage of goods varying in size and weight.

There are two different types of pallet system options available:

  • Roll Formed Pallet Rack – Roll formed pallet rack products are placed on horizontal load beams that are held in position by mounting clips. You can easily adjust the dimensions and heights of this system, as the clips that come with it can be moved with ease. This option is highly recommended for warehouses with a wide range of products and light loads.
  • Structural Selective Pallet Rack – Structural selective pallet racks have remarkable weight-bearing capabilities, with horizontal load beams that are fastened onto the uprights with bolts. These bolts allow this system to be adjusted accordingly to fulfil various storage applications.

BHD Storage Solutions can help Australian businesses to acquire and install a custom-designed selective pallet rack. Our team of technicians can answer any queries you might have about our systems and how they can fulfil your storage requirements. Our goal is to deliver a system that meets all of your specified selective pallet rack dimensions and loading capabilities.

Pallet Racking FAQs

A pallet rack is a modular form of pallet storage that’s often used in warehouses due to its versatility, as it allows for adjustments to be easily made when required. These warehouse racking systems feature a series of units or bays, with each unit consisting of two uprights and two beam levels.

When installed correctly and used according to guidelines, pallet rack systems require minimal maintenance. Yearly inspections are recommended to identify any damage or issues affecting stability.

As long as it’s looked after well, a pallet system can last for many years. At BHD Storage Solutions, we provide heavy-duty pallet racks that are designed to last as long as you need. A structural racking system will typically last 5-10 years longer than a comparable roll formed system. We can also provide protective guards to further increase the life of pallet racking.

The price of pallet racking will vary depending on a range of factors, including your specific requirements for design and customisation, the type of system you select, and the size. After speaking with you to ascertain your requirements, BHD Storage Solutions can provide you with a cost estimate for the system you need.

You can calculate the load capacity of pallet racks using the following formula:

Maximum Pallet Weight x Number of Pallets Per Level = Beam Capacity

It’s important that all components used have the same capacity. If you’re unsure how to work this out, it’s best to get advice and assistance from a trusted pallet racking expert like BHD Storage Solutions.

This will ultimately depend on the size and capacity of the pallet rack. Pallet racks can usually hold at least 500kg, with heavy-duty systems capable of holding up to 1800kg.

Very narrow aisle racking, also known as VNA racking, is a type of racking that’s more compact, allowing it to be installed within a smaller area for a high-density pallet racking and storage solution. This pallet rack shelving allows for a higher capacity of pallet storage within a confined area, helping to save space.

Wide aisle racking is a type of pallet racking that features spacious aisles, allowing for easier access to stored items. Wide aisle pallet rack shelving is commonly found in warehouses.

Selective pallet racking is one of the most common types of pallet systems used in warehouses and factories throughout Australia due to its strength and versatility. It can be custom made in any size to fulfil the specific racking requirements of clients in any industry.

This type of pallet rack is a one pallet deep system where two back-to-back racks are available to use as aisles, allowing every pallet stored on the rack to be individually accessible without having to move any other pallets. A selective pallet rack follows the first in first out (FIFO) system, where any products that have been stored for the longest time will be the first to be taken.


  • As minimal labour is required for assembly and the materials needed are inexpensive, these systems are very cost-effective.
  • Selective pallet rack structures are designed to provide easy access to products placed on them at any time, which is especially useful if inventory is depleted and restocked on a regular basis.
  • A selective pallet rack system can become part of the building structure itself, which means the system’s upright columns can replace the building’s old vertical support I-beams and put the space to better use.
  • A selective pallet racking system allows for multiple forklifts to be used in the same aisle at the same time, keeping productivity high.


  • As aisles are created between the rows of racking, this can decrease storage density.
  • Warehouse and storage facilities that use a selective pallet rack may incur an increase in their storage costs.
  • Storage height options are limited, as uprights usually come in fixed sizes.
