Pallet racking

Metal pallet racking is intended for the storage of pallets or heavy loads through the use of different types of configurations, from traditional shelving to automated solutions.

Our pallet racking series are named PN85, PN100, PN120 and PN140, distinguished by the width of the upright face.

Posts are composed of cold-formed posts from high-strength steel strip of type S420MC EN 10149-2 for product to be painted or HX420LAD for product galvanized from coils

Traditional pallet racking

Traditional pallet racking is mainly composed of posts and stringers. Posts are the vertical elements consisting of uprights connected to each other by sleepers and diagonals. The stringers or beams are the horizontal elements that, in pairs, form the loading surface.

The posts are composed of 2 uprights made by cold-forming from high-strength steel strips. Painted posts are made from S420MC EN 10149-2 steel while galvanized posts from HX420LAD steel coils. The uprights can be galvanized or painted, have frontal dimensions from 85 mm to 140 mm, and thicknesses from 1.5 mm to 2.5 mm.

All steels used by Torri Srl are certified.

All stringers, or beams, are cold-formed from high-performance steel strip S355MC EN 10149-2 for tubular product or S235JR EN 10025 for boxed product.

The spars have a rectangular ribbed multi-fold section apt to give excellent flexural and torsional stiffness, as well as high geometric stability. The profiles used are “tubular” (LT) or interlocking double-C (NS).

Drive-in Shelving

Drive-in pallet racking allows the storage of pallets inside tunnels consisting of floor stands and side rails.

The pallets are placed on the side rails with the forklift having to proceed inside the tunnels formed by the racking itself.

This system makes the most of the depth of the warehouse.

In conclusion, drive-in shelving is ideal if you need to store large quantities of products with few references and have limited storage space.

Gravity shelving

Gravity shelving enables high-density storage through the use of inclined roller lanes secured to the shelf structure.

The rack can operate in LIFO or FIFO mode, and different types of roller lanes are available according to the load unit specified by the customer.

Mainly, this type of racking allows for more references than drive-in racking, in fact each individual loading tunnel can hold a different reference.
