Several pallet rack accessories are available to help secure your Lyon pallet rack system to insure both safety and stability. To insure minimum stability standards, racks should be level, plumb and properly anchored. The front-to-back support reduces the likelihood of misplaced pallets falling through. A plywood support channel supports either plywood or other decking material or as a front to back member between beams.

Pallet rack row spacers provide a stabilizing connection for back to back rows of racks. Two spacers are recommended for each pair of uprights. Wall ties also provide stability and consistent spacing from the wall. Between row spacers and wall ties, you can create long rows of uniformly spaced pallet racks. Provide even more protection against abuse for your pallet racks with impact support pallet rack guards. The impact guard should be anchored to the concrete floor around exposed uprights. Pallet rack accessories like the impact guard will help protect storage racks from forklifts.
