How many pallets can I store per square meter?
Have you recently asked your self how many pallets can I store per square meter? The number of pallets that can be stored per square meter depends on several factors, such as the size of the pallets, the height of the storage racks, and the layout of the warehouse. However, a common rule of thumb used in the industry is that a standard 1.2m x 1m pallet can be stored in an area of approximately 2.5 square meters when using standard pallet racking with a height of around 6 meters. This means that you can store roughly 0.4 pallets per square meter of floor space.
The height of the building’s roof at eves and ridge will also determine the number of pallets that can be stored in the height of the pallet racking bays. The type of pallet racking to be used APR adjustable pallet racking which is the most popular or drive in, narrow aisle or other types. The manufacture can also have an impact on the number of pallets that can fit into a warehouse. For instance the depth of pallet racking beams or the width of pallet racking frame uprights could have an effect this is why it is better to use a truly independent warehouse pallet racking provider. The width of frame uprights or depth of beams on many installations can be reduced it by a bay in the length or storage level in the height if deep beams or wide uprights are used.
It’s important to note that this is a rough estimate and that the actual number of pallets that can be stored per square meter will depend on the specific circumstances of the warehouse. For example, if you use a higher-density storage system such as a narrow aisle racking or a drive-in racking system, you may be able to store more pallets in a smaller space. On the other hand, if you have to leave space for walkways or other equipment, you may be able to store fewer pallets per square meter.
