Over Dock Rack
Are your loading docks cluttered with empty pallets and packaging materials? Over dock storage rack is used to store lighter loads such as empty pallets, or packaging materials in the space over dock doors for a more organized dock area.
Don’t let this space go to waste! Not only can over dock racking help warehouse/logistics managers and shipping/receiving supervisors put more product in their warehouse without the need for expansion, but also enhances safety, aesthetics and operational efficiency.
Steel King offers two over dock rack designs to ensure maximized space utilization:
- A single-leg over dock storage rack design allows clearance for forklift traffic, while adding no load to the building’s roof structure. Wall ties need to be secured to a solid, concrete type wall. A sheet metal walled building would not work for this type of installation.
- A ceiling-supported over dock storage rack design is suitable for buildings of any wall type and provides maximum clearance for forklifts. There are no lower legs to interfere with forklift traffic, and rack frames are bolted or welded to the roof trusses of the building. This configuration requires verification of the building’s ability to support the additional weight of the rack and pallets.
