Tear Drop Pallet Rack
Patented Design, Superior Value
Ease of assembly and rack adjustability are the design advantages that boltless Tear Drop Pallet Rack Systems offer. 100% selective Tear Drop pallet rack systems allow access to every pallet. This storage rack design is economical, efficient and adaptable in application, due to quick assembly and adjustment without tools, and an affordable purchase price.
Compatible with virtually all existing "teardrop" style rack connections - new and old.
Industry Compatible Tear Drop Style Pallet Rack
Ridg-U-Rak's Tear Drop beam-to-column connection is designed to be compatible with other widely available Tear Drop pallet rack systems and also can work side-by-side with slotted and structural pallet rack designs. Heavier bracing and better impact resistance are reasons to step up to Ridg-U-Rak reliability when expanding your current pallet rack system. Ridg-U-Rak offers a Rack Repair Kit that allows for repair without unloading the rack, saving cost and time.
Our Ridg-U-Tier II Tear Drop pallet rack system provides an enhanced, rigid, automatic lock for improved safety. Ridg-U-Rak's patented Springlock locking mechanism is an integral element of the rack's beam, replacing the "pinch-pin" locking system. The Springlock assembly provides positive beam-to-column engagement, improving installation speed and safety.
A center reinforcing rib is unique to Ridg-U-Rak's Tear Drop pallet rack configurations, providing heavier bracing for added strength and rigidity, and larger columns for better impact resistance. Frames are available in any height or depth and numerous column configurations providing great flexibility in pallet rack system design.
|Column Sizes:||3x1-5/8, 3x2-1/4, 3x3 and 4x3-inch|
|Beam Sizes:||2-2 thru 6-2 inch step beams|
|Connection Style||Tear Drop and Pin with automatic lock|
Applications & Options:
Tear Drop Frames
Teardrop systems offer easy assembly with 2" vertical beam adjustments. No tools are required. The teardrop beam-to-column connection is designed to be compatible with other widely available teardrop systems.
Consult with factory for vertical beam-to-beam spacings greater than 108"
• The Frame Capacity Chart gives allowable loads based on the specified "Unsupported Length" of the columns.
• Values shown are in full compliance with the current RMI Specifications.
• The loads on upright frames accumulate from top to bottom, therefore, the unsupported length and the column load below each beam level should be checked to determine the worst-case scenario.
• The capacities shown in this table are for static load conditions only.
• For other special conditions such as seismic or wind loadings, consult with Ridg-U-Rak sales.
Tear Drop Beams
Interchangeable teardrop beams, as with slotted beams, are available in many profiles, in virtually any length, with capacities to 18,000 lbs. per pair. You can tie into many existing systems both old and new. Beams have a safety factor of 1.67 based on minimum yield of steel. All beam capacities are calculated based on the requirements of the current RMI specification.
Our teardrop pallet system provides a robust, patented, automatic lock for improved safety. The Springlock assembly provides positive beam-to-column engagement, improving installation speed and safety.
All capacities are based on uniformly distributed loads on a pair of beams. Other loading conditions can greatly reduce the carrying capacity of a beam. For unusual loading requirements, call your local Ridg-U-Rak distributor.
• Capacities are based on uniformly distributed loads per pair of beams.
• Capacities listed are for non-seismic conditions. For seismic conditions consult with Ridg-U-Rak sales or engineering.
