Back Stop Bracket: Bracket which attaches over the beam to secure column for pallet back stop. Helps keep product from being pushed into the aisle behind.
Back To Back: Uprights that are placed directly behind each other with only a flue area separating.
Barrel Bolt: A special bolt with a rounded cap which can secure accessories (i.e. column protectors) without protruding into the bay where product is stored. This helps keep product from being damaged.
Base plate: (foot plate) Metal plate at the base of an upright used to support upright and attach it to the floor. Different sizes of base plates are required in dif- ferent seismic areas of the country or for different size columns.
Bay: Product storage and display area between two uprights. ex. A 102” bay is the distance between two uprights that product may be displayed in. i.e. the length of the beams.
Beam: A horizontal member of the rack system. Two beams are placed at the same level, front and rear, to make a shelf. Wood or wire decking is placed on top of the beams to create a product display platform.
Beam Connection: (angle, beam clip) End clamp on a beam that fastens it to the upright and is comprised of various locking devices and a number of studs which rest in the keyholes.
Beam Length: Measurement from inside of angle to inside of opposite end angle which correlates to the distance between two uprights and the bay length.
Beam Spread: Occurs when excess weight in the center of the shelf causes beams to bow outward. Ex- cessive beam spread can cause the decking to fall through and the merchandise to fall to the floor or shelf below.
Beam Step: Ledge of beam which the wood decking or wire decking rest upon.
Board Rack: Special upright used to display wooden boards or specialty lumber. Angled backward for better product display and customer access.
