How To Design The Size Of Heavy-duty Shelves

- Aug 08, 2018 -

Heavy-duty shelves are simple shelves consisting of main and sub frames and beams. It can be divided into beam-type shelves and drive-in shelves according to the load-capacity and goods access methods. Among them, beam shelf is the first choice for storage shelves because of its economy and durability advantages.

We often receive customer enquiries and ask about the size of the shelves. Here we share with you how to design heavy-duty beam shelves:

1. Calculate the beam length based on the pallet size.

Usually, the beam length is two pallet width plus the space between the pallets and the space between the pallet and uprights (our standard is 100mm). For example: pallet width is 1200mm, then the length of the beam is 1200*2+300=2700mm;

2. Select the beam section.

Consider the beam length to calculate the bearing capacity of each layer, then select the beam section: 120mm,  box beam;

3. Calculate the uprights height.

Consider the safety distance between each beam and the cargo top in 150mm ( so called safety forklift distance), top level cargo is usually 500mm. 

For example: pallet height is 1100mm, in a 4 levels shelving, the shelf height should be 1250*3+120*3+500=4610mm. Usually, the uprights pitch is 50mm, so the final height of shelving is 4650mm.

4. Calculate the shelving depth.

The depth of pallet is 1000mm, when design, we usually reduce it by 100mm, so that the goods can be placed in the beams.

In summary, the size of the heavy-duty beam racking is H4650*L2700*D900mm.
