Penco Pallet Racks can handle nearly anything you throw at it, including seismic activity. The pallet rack plus is perfect for warehouses on fault lines, or wherever severe conditions exist. The basic components of these pallet racks are their upright Frames and Beams. Each is manufactured to provide many years of dependable service at their rated loads.
Penco Pallet Rack Plus is engineered for use in areas where high seismic activity or other severe conditions exist. To learn the seismic rating where your pallet rack will be in use, contact your Penco representative. Plus Beam End Connectors. The Plus beams have 4 connectors for a stronger connection between the beam and the upright post in conditions with greater lateral forces.
The beam is welded 3” down from the top of the connector so loading is evenly distributed across all four connector prongs. The beam locking key is the same as used on standard beams. Plus Upright Frames with Large Footplate's. Each Plus upright frame has two 5” x 7” x 3/8” thick footplate's with four 9/16” diameter anchoring holes. The extra holes provide the installer with more choices for floor anchoring.
Penco Pallet Rack Upright Frames are available in five load capacities. A letter code stamped into the face of the post indicates the frame type. Depths of 30”, 36”, 42”, 48”, 54” and 60” are standard, but other depths and double-posted and cantilever frames are available. Standard heights range from 48” to 240” in 6” increments, but greater heights can be achieved when splices are used.
Beam heights adjust on 3” vertical centers, and are independent on each side of the frame. Beams of any type can be placed along the full height of the post; there are no dead spots on the post, even across a splice. Various load rated frames can be combined in a row of rack for maximum economy.
