Pallet Rack Plus - Seismic Rated Pallet Racks
Pallet Rack Plus is engineered for use in areas where high seismic activity or other severe conditions exist. Load capacities are the same as the standard pallet rack, however the frames and beams are more resistant to horizontal and vertical forces that could damage the standard rack and its load.
Pallet Rack Plus beams have four connectors instead of three for a stronger connection between the beam and the upright post to resist conditions with higher lateral forces. The beam is welded 3” down from the top of the connector so loading is evenly distributed across all four connector prongs. The beam locking key is the same as used on standard beams. These seismic-rated pallet racks also come with
large footplates with extra holes provide the installer with more choices for floor anchoring.

Plus Beam End Connectors
The Plus Beam End Connectors have four connector prongs instead of three. The beam is centered in the 11 ½” long connector so the load is distributed evenly across all four connector prongs. The beam locking key is the same as used on our standard beams. Penco end connectors are designed to slip into a slotted upright connection to create a compression fit. The more load placed on the beams, the tighter the connection becomes.
Plus Upright Frames with Large Footplates
Each Plus upright frame has two 5” x 7” x 3/8” thick footplates with four 9/16” diameter anchoring holes. The extra holes provide the installer with more choices for floor anchoring.
