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 Spa 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).
