 Product FAQs


We do! Our online catalog is designed for simplicity and offers the essentials for what most people need to build a selective rack system. But these products are just a sampling of our full inventory. We also have additional brands, sizes, and products in stock that are not listed on the site. If you’re on the hunt for a product or brand that’s not on our site, give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you out.

While most teardrop pallet rack is compatible, we do not advise mixing two different brands in the same bay of racking if it can be avoided. Most importantly, it is generally not advisable to mix beams from two different brands in the same bay, even if they’re the same length.

Pallet rack capacities are typically rated for applications using just one brand of racking and will be void if combinations of brands are used in the same system.  However, it’s usually okay to use a different brand of teardrop pallet rack as adder bays to an already existing system. In this situation, only the adder bay’s capacity will usually be void. This doesn’t mean the racking will not be sturdy and perform as needed, but that the guaranteed capacity for that bay will be waived since it’s being used in combination with a different product. For more information on teardrop pallet rack compatibility, we encourage you to read this helpful article.

Selective pallet rack is generally easy to assemble, only requiring a little elbow grease and help from a friend. It’s easiest to follow the directions by watching a video, so we’ve made a How to Assemble Pallet Rack video that you can watch here.
