Abstract : A multiple type steel pallet rack was subjected to a series of tests and found satisfactory for warehouse operation. The load capacity of the rack is 2,000 lbs. per pallet load. Loads up to 5,000 lbs. per pallet, however, can be placed on the single type unit when it is a part of a continuous row of racks. Recommendations for minor modifications of the rack are also contained in this report.
