Interlake Mecalux Selective Tear Drop Style Pallet Rack Frames

 mecalux-interlake-upright-zoomed-flipped.jpg

Selective rack is the most common type of storage solution found in the United States. It is a static system combining beams and frames to provide proper storage for pallets and other large items. Selective rack also comes with a variety of accessories and options.

Frames are the vertical elements of the racks. They are rectangular in shape and come in a variety of heights, widths and depths depending on the load being stored and the model of frame being used. A standard frame consists of two posts connected by a series of horizontal and diagonal struts and includes a foot plate welded or bolted to the bottom of each post.

Interlake Mecalux uses only high-strength 12 ga. steel certified to meet the strictest specifications. The columns measure 3.06"W x 2.69"D.  Frames include foot plates to allow frames to be anchored to the floor. Anchor bolts are sold separately, see pallet racking accessories.

Interlake Mecalux Selective Pallet Rack Frames are available with either bolted or welded(See options below) frames. Interlake Mecalux's patented beam-to-frame connection creates the most rigid and reliable structure available. It also provides exceptional protection against damage, tampering and accidental disengagement.

Interlake Mecalux uses only high-strength steel, certified to meet the strictest specifications. All weld operations are controlled through advanced robotics or performed by welders certified to AWS Standards. The durable powder coating and baked enamel finishes ensure long life under even the most demanding conditions.

Interlake Mecalux Shimming Diagram

In installations with very uneven floors, the maximum shim height should not exceed 1-15/16”. If the unevenness of the floor exceeds this dimension, the post is to be re positioned vertically using a hole punch as a reference for the distance (± 2”). Note that shimming may require longer anchors to maintain minimum embedment. Please Contact Us for pricing and availability.

General Design Consideration

GMA Pallet Structure

  Pallets

Pallets are flat transport structures that support goods in a stable fashion while being lifted by a forklift. They supply the structural foundation of the unit load and as such are an important consideration for the design of any warehouse.

Interlake Mecalux products are optimized to the dimensions of the standard pallet used in the U.S., the Grocery Manufacturers' Association or GMA pallet.

Clearances

In any design, it is important to consider the vertical clearances required to successfully lift the load and pallet off the rack using a forklift or pallet jack. As an industry

 standard, the distance from the top of the pallet load overhead is 4” to 6”.
The pallet must extend 3” beyond the frame depth on either side to ensure proper pallet support.

Clearances Between Pallets And Posts

Each pallet should be positioned 3” or 4” from any adjacent post or pallet, unless the bay has a 3 pallet width. In this case, a 5” clearance should be provided between pallets and 4” between post and pallet.

    Custom Frame / Fast Delivery

    Posted by Lavoy on 31st May 2012

    We have a lot of frames at our facility that are all different sizes. One area we had to add to for more storage. We only needed 2 more frames. The frames are 144"H x 30"D. I called around and everyone told me it's not a standard size and will have a lead time of 4 - 7 weeks. We did not want to wait that long, especially for just 2 frames. I asked around and was directed to your website, and that you make custom size frames. Price was the same as a standard frame and the arrived 5 days after I ordered. Thanks Hawkeye Material, you helped us out when others couldn't. I'll keep you in mind for next time!
