Pallet racking shelving loadings and structural calculations

Do you have existing pallet racking or shelving but are unsure of the safe working loads? Or are you looking to move pallet racking and are unsure of the suitability of an existing warehouse or yard floor slab? You need to talk to 2h Storage,  unlike many other racking companies we can provide pallet racking shelving loadings and structural calculations for floor slabs, mezzanine floors or buildings where racking or shelving will be used on ground floors, first floors or above.


Bay loads, overall weight loads and point loading all require careful consideration. The first consideration is the pallet racking loadings these include the UDL per pair of beam then the bay load this is the loadings that the frames and base plates will take. Then you need to consider the overall loads being placed on the slab, floor or structure that the racking or shelving will be placed on. One of the most important and also most overlooked considerations is the point loading that will be placed on the floor where the pallet racking or shelving baseplates are located. This downward compression force can cause sinking, fractures or even collapse to the floor slab or structure below the pallet racking or shelving.


If you need any information of structural calculations relating to storage equipment pallet racking and shelving call our storage equipment design team on 01765 640 160.

Tips for buying heavy duty shelving

Many people and businesses find them shelves faced with a need for extra storage equipment but there is a little more to shelving than first meets the eye!

When you buy shelving it is usually priced and supplied in individual shelving bays. However if you want to buy a few bays of shelving there is a cost saving because you only need one bay with two upright end panels or frames to start you off. These bays are described as starter bays the following bays are described as extension bays. So for example it you have one straight run of 6bays of shelving you would only need 7 end panels or frames this is of course dependant on the type and manufacture of the shelving but this is the norm.

Also be aware that if the shelving run has a break in it to accommodate a door etc. this again effect the number of end panels and frames required as will runs that are set out at 90 degrees or in a “U” shaped plan.

The number of shelves is usually described as the number of levels but again this can catch people out because the top shelf or level is sometimes referred to as the dust cover level. Of course if a dust cover is required that’s fine but you do not want to pay for one if it is not needed! If you would like any further tips or advice on shelving or pallet racking give us a call on 01765 640161 TODAY!
