Adding to an Existing Rack System?
In Canada there are many brands of pallet racking in the field. When adding to an existing system, it is important to properly identify your current brand to ensure compatibility and to maintain capacity. See our Rack Brand Identifier page to see the most popular Canadian brands of racking. If you don’t see your brand on this page, then please check here for the most common USA produced brands. As a qualified dealer for several manufacturers, we are able to support most every brand with additional components and accessories, if that is what you require.
Welded Pallet Racking Frames
Welded frames are available upon request and may be specified in certain applications.
Bolted vs. Welded Pallet Rack End Frames
Pallet racking frames in North America were traditionally constructed by welding the bracing to the posts, whereas the rest of the world has traditionally fastened the bracing to the posts with bolts. When bolted frames were first introduced to North America, there was a lot of debate and controversy. Today most North American manufactures offer their end frames with either a bolted or welded construction and the controversy has mostly disappeared. The conversion and growth of bolted end frame construction in North America is due to the advantages of this construction.
advantages of bolt together end frames:
- Less expensive to construct, as welders are not required
- Faster to construct, bolting vs. welding
- Less expensive to transport if shipped “knocked down”
- Easier and less expensive to repair
- Easier to customize to specialized sizes
- Structurally equivalent by engineers
- Structurally superior in seismic conditions
Considerations of Bolt Together End Frames:
- More on-site staging area required
- Longer on-site construction time
- More components to manage
- Quality control required on assembly
