What is Selective Pallet Racking?

Selective pallet racking 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.

There are two different types of selective pallet racking system options available:

Roll Formed Selective Pallet Rack

Roll formed selective pallet rack products are placed on horizontal load beams that are held in position by mounting clips. You can easily adjust the selective pallet racking 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 that store products in various sizes.

Structural Selective Pallet Rack

The structural selective pallet racking system has 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.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Selective Pallet Racking


  • As minimal labour is required to assemble a selective pallet racking system 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 racking 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 the pallet 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.
