Fork Entry Bar for Support

Fork Entry Bars

Fork Entry Bars, also referred to as Fork Clearance Bars, are essentially racking support bars that serve as convenient solutions for storing non-palletized items on pallet racking systems with easy access by forklifts. These bars store the load above the beams, allowing the forklift tines to enter and exit under the load for storage and retrieval. They provide structural support for the load and guidance for forklift tines allowing for quicker and more secure handling of non-palletized products. 

Common  Applications: Storing plywood, drywall, doors, and plastic sheets 


Structural Support: Fork Entry Bars are robustly constructed to withstand the weight of loaded pallets and provide reliable support for forklift tines during material handling tasks. 

Guidance for Forklift Tines: These bars serve as guides for forklift tines, helping operators align and insert them accurately into pallets for lifting and maneuvering. 

Smooth Pallet Entry and Retrieval: Fork Entry Bars ensure smooth and controlled pallet entry and retrieval, reducing the risk of pallet misalignment or damage during handling operations. 

Durable Construction: Built from durable materials such as steel or reinforced aluminum, Fork Entry Bars offer long-lasting performance and resistance to wear and tear in demanding warehouse environments.
