is used. Bulk Storage Rack generally has lower capacity ratings than pallet rack. Since bulk storage racks are used in hand picking applications, smaller aisles are required, generally 3 to 4 ft. The heights of Bulk Storage Racks
are such that they can be reached by hand. However, taller racks can be accessed with rolling safety ladders or a catwalk system. However, when storing heavy products that are still being manually handled, some users opt for storing the products on pallet rack with rack decking.

- Mini-Pallet Rack or Wide Span shelving
- Rivet Rack
- Industrial Metal Shelving
