For years, boltless pallet racks have been popular, due to quick assembly without tools, and a low purchase price. However, many users have found that the open-back roll formed columns do not withstand the inevitable fork truck impacts, thus any initial savings are more than offset by high maintenance and replacement costs. There is now a solution for storage rack design which retains the benefits of a boltless rack while offering substantially more durability.
We offer an industry standard “tear-drop” connection and is, in fact, interchangeable with the majority of pallet racking systems in use today. However, a closed tubular column shape is utilized. Independent engineering tests have confirmed that the Tubular Column has over 250% more frontal impact strength than a comparable open back column. Additional benefits include:
Because of these benefits, not only are many buyers of new pallet racks opting for the new tubular design, but many users of existing open back (rol
