Load of pallets

Racking load, static load and dynamic load what is that exactly? This question we get frequently. Below we provided you a short explanation with an illustration.

Racking load

The racking load is the maximum load a pallet in a pallet rack without shelves at a uniformly distributed load on the pallet. The pallets are tested with a equally distributed load of 25 kg bags.

Our tests are based on the above mentioned pallet rack.

Static load

The static load is the maximum load of a pallet as it is on a flat surface. If several pallets are stacked, the total weight determines the load on the bottom pallet.

Dynamic load

The dynamic load is the maximum load on a pallet during transport with a forklift or pallet truck with a uniformly distributed load on the pallet.
