Warehouse Shelving Identification Chart

We offer new and used racks, including boltless and steel shelving styles, with a variety of options to fit the design of any storage system and meet every load-bearing requirement. With so many options, it can be difficult to know which rack is best for your material handling and storage needs. View the rack identification chart and rack descriptions below to identify which rack system is best for you.

Teardrop Rack

Teardrop Rack (Interlake “Old Style” Rack)

Teardrop systems are designed for pallet racks, and offer ease of assembly without tools, rack adjustability, and access to every shelf.

New Style Rack

New Style Rack (Interlake “New Style” Rack)

New style racks are compatible with most teardrop pallets. They offer the same benefits, including easy assembly and rack adjustability.
Sammons Rack

Sammons Rack

Sammons racks are commonly mistaken for teardrop racks, but are slightly rounder and placed on larger beams, offering higher load-bearing capacity than most teardrop racks.
Keystone Rack

Keystone Rack (Republic Rack)

Keystone racks feature a U-shaped imprint, with beams engaged by a locking safety clip. Keystone racks resist metal tearing and protect against side-loading of materials.
Multi-Rack

Multi-Rack

Multi-rack systems accommodate multiple types of racking on the same system of uprights.
Pacific Rack

Pacific Rack

Pacific racks can be configured to meet different load sizes, weights, and seismic zones. They are ideal for warehouses that need to store a wide variety of products with different weights and dimensions.
Penco Rack

Penco Rack

Penco racks have a slotted design with a safety lock tab, designed to resist impact from material handling equipment and prevent beams from dislodging, offering added safety for locations with frequent product flow.
Ridg-U-Rak

Ridg-U Rack

Ridg-U racks offer a narrow slotted design, which allows pallets to be pinch-clipped into place to support very heavy loads.
Structural Rack

Structural Rack

Structural racks, which contain peg-shaped holes, are one of the strongest, most durable rack types. They are impact-resistant, making them great for use in seismic locations or locations with frequent forklift activity.
Sturdi-Bilt Rack

Sturdi-Bilt Rack

Similar to Ridg-U racks, Sturdi-Bilt racks have narrow slots, which allow beams to be wedge-locked in place on the uprights.
Speed Rack

Speed Rack

Speed racks have peg-shaped holes, accompanied by a J-hook safety pin, for maximum load-bearing capacity. Installation requires some tools.
T-Bolt Rack

T-Bolt Rack

T-Bolt beams are attached to uprights with large bolts, offering rigidity and reliability. With rectangular imprints and a front-end-only connection, T-Bolt racks are one of the easier bolted rack systems to install.
