Rack Supported Building – Drive In

Type Of System

HYBRID Racking Incorporating Both Structural Drive-In (Structural Racking) And Roll Formed Pallet Racking



Our client was looking to quadruple the footprint of an existing non-insulated storage warehouse building by expanding racking on three sides. The design goal was maximum pallet storage density with covered main aisle ways sufficient for loading 53’ trailers. This system comprised of a Structural racking system which supported the 5,000 Lbs pallets, environmental live loads, and the exterior cladding. Roll Formed rack column material was utilized for purlins and wall girts.
