A Turnkey Solution To Adding Levels To Your Bulk Storage Racks
Add bulk storage rack levels so you can expand your storage capabilities. Lyon bulk storage racks are the ideal racking system for the manual loading of medium weight bulky items. To make it easy to add a level, we have included everything you need. Simply pick a decking style and a size to match your racking. Lyon has been the racking industry standard for over a century.
Beams and Front-to-Back Supports
Lyon makes the heavy-duty beams of 14-gauge steel. Unique “Z” beam design of the heavy-duty steel beams increases strength and load capacity while resisting tipping. The beam clips are MIG welded for added strength. A fold in lock tab easily engages in order to protect against displacement. The 5/8″ high step helps prevents the decking from shifting. Depending on the width, a Lyon bulk storage rack beam holds between 1,650 lbs and 3,300 lbs.
Even if you pick decking with your bulk storage rack levels you will still need front-to-backs supports. These supports minimize beam rotation under heavy loads thus maintaining rigidity and stability. Lyon includes the proper amount with each level to fit the decking and the beam size. You will need between 1 and 4 supports per level. Front-to-back supports install easily without hardware or tools.
Our bulk storage rack levels come with 5 options for the included decking. We use heavy-duty industrial shelves for the solid decking. This decking will create a smooth decking surface. The ribbed decking has space gaps so it is easy to pick items up or set them down without pinched fingers. We make the ribbed decking out of 20-gauge steel.
If you want to create your own decking with plywood, the front-to-back supports will provide a cross bar for it. We also have wire decking. This galvanized flat wire option will provide access to sprinklers to all levels. Finally, we have a budget friendly option in particle board decking. This durable option is great for more general purpose storage.
Lyon stocks bulk storage rack levels in our standard Dove Gray finish. The powder coat paint finish helps protect your storage racks from everyday use. When determining total weight capacity for the rack level make sure to take into account not only the beams but the decking. Decking might not hold as much or hold more than the beams can hold.
