The classification of racks and its evolution process

The early rise of storage racks has evolved to date, consistent with the needs of modern warehousing, and has met the characteristics of various industries and has presented two large-scale evolutions. Early welding method racks and today's assembled racks are all in the category of storage racks.


Welded racks: The joints of the racks are connected by welding. The finished welding storage racks have many consumables and high transportation costs. They can only be used in fixed production and cannot be transported.


Assembled racks: The joints of the racks are connected by bolts or bayonet. The assembled storage racks have less consumables, and the transportation cost is low and convenient. Compared with the welded rack, the assembled rack utilizes the mechanically dispersed load-bearing principle to reduce the material cost of the rack and reduce the transportation cost. For the user, the rack can be disassembled and replaced at any time.

After undergoing changes in welding and assembly, the racks were divided into two categories, fixed or mobile: mobile racks and stationary racks.


Mobile racks are currently divided into: mobile racks and rotating racks. Mobile racks are represented by light, medium-sized translating racks, heavy-duty tray-type mobile racks; and rotating racks are represented by horizontal rotating racks and vertical rotating racks.


Fixed racks are the mainstream products commonly found in the market: laminate racks, pallet racks, attic racks, through racks, gravity racks, cantilever racks, mobile racks, drawer racks, steel platforms.


Over time, the rack has been divided in height: low rack, high rack, super high rack. All three racks are custom made to the customer's storage environment.

Nowadays, the racks are divided into load-bearing weights under the manufacturer's plan: light racks, medium-sized racks, heavy-duty racks. With the emergence of information storage management systems, there may be new types of future racks.
