What is the load capacity of each layer of heavy-duty racks?

Heavy-duty racks are usually divided into multiple layers. Because they are very large, everyone attaches great importance to their load-carrying capacity, because there may be potential safety hazards. So, what is the layer load of heavy-duty racks? Let's take a look together below.


When many people asked what the load-bearing capacity of a heavy-duty shelf was, they got a reply of more than 800kg. They always felt that they would not be very satisfied, and even thought they were perfunctory. In fact, this is not the case. In theory, the load of each layer of heavy-duty racks can reach 800kg-5t. If special materials such as beams are used, it can be higher, depending on the structural design and material selection.


1. Calculate according to each layer as an independent load


First of all, this question is very good, indicating that there is a certain understanding of the load capacity of heavy shelves, because many unscrupulous manufacturers may fool customers and tell each other by the overall load capacity of the entire shelf, but in fact, in the industry, the standard is the shelf The load capacity of each floor is calculated.


2. More than one ton in the industry is heavy-duty racks


Although it has been seen on many networks that in theory, as long as the load capacity exceeds 500kg, it is considered a heavy-duty rack. Actually, in the racking industry, a heavy-duty rack with a load capacity of 1 ton or more is called a heavy rack, and 1 ton (t)=1000 Kilogram (kg).


3. Keep a safety factor


It does not mean that the load capacity of a heavy-duty rack is 1 ton. It is completely based on the load limit of one ton. This is incorrect, because for safety considerations, a safety factor needs to be left, and this factor is usually 1.65. That is to say, if the load capacity of a heavy-duty rack is 1 ton, it must be able to withstand 1.65 tons without irreversible deformation.


In short, the load capacity of each layer of heavy-duty racks should be based on actual needs, and there will be different specifications and standards, and then manufacturers can design products that meet their own needs. Such racks are more suitable for us to use.
