UNARCO’s versatile L-Rail system and Vertical Post Dividers intermediate shelves can be added to these side holes, creating additional shelves within a bay for cartons or piece product in warehouse storage or a retail store environment.
UPICK punching is also available to snap Carton Flow shelves into your Interchangeable pallet racking system, eliminating the need for drilling. These slotted holes are on 1-1/2” vertical centers accept shelf clips which easily attach side members and require no tools or drilling. UPICK uprights for interchangeable pallet racking with slotted side holes allow Carton Flow rack shelves to be moved as quickly as your product and warehouse storage needs change.
Side-hole punching options are available in both the open-section upright or the SuperPost closed-tube interchangeable pallet racking uprights. Attaching pallet rack accessories with a closed tube post can be difficult because you cannot reach inside the pallet rack upright. With side punching, these accessories and pallet rack add-ons can be designed to bolt through side holes.
Interchangeable Rack Side Punching options are part of the upright manufacturing process.

Row spacers, backstop beams, and many other accessories fasten easily in the square side holes in interchangeable upright posts. A 3/8" or 1/2" down-aisle through bolt can add extra protection from uplift when placed through the side holes in uprights. There are many uses for the side holes in uprights, including the addition of intermediate shelves in a Versa-rack or Vertical Post Divider assembly which will section off a bay to more useful space for non-palletized loads.
