How High You Should Build Your Chicago Pallet Racks

Customers often ask our project managers how high they can build the pallet rack shelving in their Chicago warehouse. The answer is going to depend on several factors, and each one will need to be taken into consideration when you start to plan, build, and install your pallet racks. You’ll need to think about things like:

  • How high are your ceilings? This is an obvious question to ask, but what many people don’t consider is everything that’s on their ceiling already, such as vents and fire sprinklers. Your pallet racks will need to clear these items, so they’ll affect how high your pallet rack shelving can go.
  • What are you storing? The amount you can store on the pallet racking that you choose will affect how high you can build your pallet racks as well. Make sure you know your pallet weights before you start building as well as how much your pallet racking is made to hold.
  • How are you loading your pallet racking? If you are using a forklift, you’ll need to leave enough room at the top to lift items off and on. If you are loading them manually, you’ll need to consider the safety of your team and whether you have ladders tall enough for them to get to the top safely.

The team at DAK Equipment & Engineering in Chicago is happy to help you determine how high you can build your pallet racks! Give us a call today or contact us through our website to speak with one of our knowledgeable project managers. They’ll help you make the right choices for your warehouse.
