Have you recently wondered about the pallet storage capacity per square meter? Wondering how many pallets can I store per square meter? The number of pallets that can be accommodated in this space hinges on several factors: pallet size, rack height, and warehouse layout. While industry practice generally suggests that a standard 1.2m x 1m pallet can be stored in an area of approximately 2.5 square meters with 6-meter high pallet racking, this yields around 0.4 pallets per square meter of floor space.
The building’s roof height, along with the type of pallet racking (such as APR adjustable pallet racking or alternatives like drive-in or narrow aisle), plays a crucial role in determining storage capacity. Additionally, the choice of manufacturer influences pallet storage potential. Factors like the depth of pallet racking beams or the width of frame uprights can impact storage. Opting for an independent warehouse pallet racking provider ensures tailored solutions.
It’s worth noting that this is a rough estimate. The actual pallet storage per square meter will be contingent on the warehouse’s specific circumstances. For instance, employing higher-density systems like narrow aisle or drive-in racking may increase storage efficiency. Conversely, allowances for walkways or equipment may lead to a lower pallet count per square meter.
