Closed Tube Upright Pallet Rack Solution

SuperPost pallet storage racks closed tube option is available in both Interchangeable and T-Bolt bolted connection. Manufactured as a solid tube, SuperPost offers a much higher resistance to impact that is common in normal busy warehouse storage activity.

Columns are automatically welded closed during the milling process and miter-cut bracing is welded against the post for superior torsional resistance. Not only is SuperPost more resistant against abuse, it also carries up to 35% more than an open section pallet storage rack upright of the same gauge. SuperPost is a more cost effective solution than heavier open section columns for Pick Modules, warehouses and distribution centers that require a higher capacity upright.

Another SuperPost benefit to food or health industries is the cleanliness that a closed section offers by preventing dirt and debris from accumulating inside the column around the baseplate in a warehouse.

Any damaged element can put all of the warehouse pallet storage racks at risk. Why not get all of the impact protection, added capacity, and benefits of a closed tube upright that are available with UNARCO’s SuperPost?

Closed tube pallet storage uprights can be manufactured for T-Bolt rack or Interchangeable Rack beam connections. In addition, Interchangeable pallet storage racks are available with side punching for attachment of accessories or durability add-ons.

UNARCO is one of only a few manufacturers of closed tube pallet storage rack uprights in the industry. The benefits and cost savings are very visible in not only the design savings but also in the more durable long-term solution of a closed tube upright.

System Highlights:

  • 200% greater resistance against impact damage

  • Over 30% more capacity than same gauge, open column uprights

  • Cost-effective solution with over 50,000 lbs. of capacity per frame in a 48″ unsupported length

  • Over 40% more twist resistance

  • 3″x3″ and 4″x3″ column sizes available

  • Increased side impact resistance

Any rack project can benefit from a closed tube column upright. Standard selective projects become more cost effective with lower gauge columns due to the increased capacity of a closed column. Highly-engineered projects, such as Pick Modules, become towers of strength and the 4×3 heavy-duty option lets you add on picking levels and work platforms for increased space in your warehouse.

Closed-Tube Pallet Rack Uprights Are More Durable

Closed-column uprights are more durable and functional than open column posts. Bracing is miter-cut to weld to the post back for added torsional strength. Each column is continuously welded and sealed closed for high performance and strength. The closed-tube design keeps debris from collecting inside of the racking upright post for a tidier warehouse which is especially important in the food industry.
