Pallet racking is a flexible and dynamic warehouse storage solution.
Space Productiv pallet racking systems are specifically designed for our client’s individual requirements, ensuring their solution maximises productivity, saves cost and enhances the effectiveness of their storage space.
Our expert design team will ensure your pallet rack installation is perfectly suited to your stock type, storage space and available equipment. If conventional pallet racking cannot meet your storage needs, we have many solutions and innovations which could be offered or developed to meet your businesses specific needs. Indeed, as manufacturers our heavy duty pallet racking, for example, is an ideal, cost effective and safe storage solution offering storage for considerably larger, heavier or non-conventional loads.
Adjustable Pallet Racking (APR)
Adjustable pallet racking (APR) is one of the most common types of warehouse racking. It meets a wide range of industrial storage needs and can be easily altered for different stock profiles or handling requirements. APR is a flexible logistical solution, adaptable to the dimension of specific unit loads. With specialist advice beams can be raised or lowered and added or removed as warehouse needs change, making it a flexible and dynamic option for warehouses where stock may vary in size and volume. Conventionally, goods are accessed by forklifts via aisles parallel to the racks and, depending on the equipment being used, the racking can be used in wide, narrow and very narrow aisle configurations. At Space Productiv we specialise in designing the most efficient system for your product, equipment and space. We can advise on the most suitable type of pallet racking to maximise your productivity while ensuring that your storage solution meets the highest safety specifications. There are many things that should be taken into consideration when designing a pallet racking system. These include:
- Desired storage capacity.
- The footprint of the storage space.
- The height of the storage space.
- Inventory rotation.
- Unit/Load volume and weight.
- The placement of structural components such as columns and doors.
- The equipment available or required for handling.
- Flexibility to incorporate ancillary storage needs such as shelving, stillages, barrels, coils etc.
Space Productiv pallet racking is extremely durable and a properly maintained system can last many years. Purchasing the correct specification of racking that is fit for purpose is not only vital for the longevity of your storage solution, it is also critical for health and safety. Without expert advice it is easy to overload a pallet racking system and exceed safe loading capacities. Space Productiv design and install a wide range of pallet racking systems and have over twenty years of expertise in helping businesses achieve maximum safety and productivity in their storage facility.
Advantages of Adjustable Pallet Racking
- Dynamic and flexible, able to meet changing needs.
- Quick and easy to install.
- Easy stock control with one pallet to one location.
- Racks can be tailored to load weight and volume.
However, if your materials are larger than can be contained on a pallet, for example long beams or sheet materials, or you wish to maximise high ceiling space, other solutions are available including a cantilever racking solution which may be better suited to your needs.
Advantages and Disadvantages of Pallet Racking
- Dynamic and flexible, able to meet changing needs
- Quick and easy to install
- Easy stock control with one pallet to one location
- Racks can be tailored to load weight and volume
- Unsuitable for materials longer/larger than a pallet or non-palletised inventory.
- Pallets can take up more space than non-palletised inventory
- Height restrictions limit usable storage space within high ceiling buildings
If your materials are larger than can be contained on a pallet, for example long beams or sheet materials, or you wish to maximise high ceiling space, a cantilever racking solution may be better suited to your needs.

ALLIANCE CARPETS CASE STUDY - PALLET RACKING & MEZZANINE FLOOR
Having just extensively increased handling capacity by investing in a state-of-the-art automated carpet cutting, wrapping and sorting machine our client was in urgent need of additional storage space tofeed this extra volume. Space Productiv helped turn the dead space above the new machinery into a usable space by combining pallet racking with a bespoke mezzanine floor.
Heavy Duty Pallet Racking
Heavy-duty pallet racking is an ideal, cost effective and safe storage solution when conventional pallet racking cannot meet your loading requirements.
Mobile Pallet Racking
Mobile racking is fixed on to mobile bases that are powered by electric motors to move them along rails on the ground, removing the need for access aisles and offering extremely high storage density.
Double-Deep Pallet Racking
Double-deep pallet racking also offers a significant increase in your storage capacity – allowing you to store two pallets deep (for use with a fork list with double-deep reach attachment).
Drive-In Pallet Racking
Drive-in or drive-through pallet racking is an ultra-compact system that makes optimum use of the available cubic area by eliminating operating aisles.
