Correctly Identify Paltier Pallet Rack and Avoid a Common Mistake

It helps to know that Paltier pallet rack can very easily be mistaken for the much more ubiquitous style of teardrop pallet rack. Load beams are easy to differentiate by their connector plates; the problem lies in the uprights. Use the tips below to correctly identify Paltier pallet rack before adding onto your system.

The holes punched in Paltier uprights are thinner than teardrop holes and are also individually symmetrical. The image below shows you the hole pattern on the front of a Paltier upright column.
Paltier-style hole pattern
Compare that to a standard teardrop hole pattern. Notice that the holes are wider and the tapering of each individual hole is asymmetrical, with a smooth curve on the outside and a slight pinch on the inside. If the holes appear to pinch toward one another like you see here, you have teardrop rack.
Teardrop-style hole pattern
You may find that Paltier load beams fit into teardrop uprights. That may be so; they may fit into the holes, but they will not secure properly. An approximate match is never the right match. We always urge you to use compatible components when assembling pallet rack, and never to mix styles.
