Teardrop pallet racks have been around for nearly 50 years, and have become a staple in warehouse storage. Their unique design provides sturdy, dependable storage for palletized items and easy customizability to maximize your space.
At Simply Rack, our teardrop pallet racking systems are available both bolted or boltless (welded) and are made with high quality steel to suit all of your warehouse storage needs.
What Are Teardrop Pallet Racks?
Teardrop pallet racks are a type of pallet rack characterized by the teardrop-shaped holes that hold the rack’s horizontal beams. This unique shape allows for easy assembly and disassembly while securely holding the beams in place. The palletized items rest on top of these beams, which are held in place with mounting clips. Teardrop racks use friction and the force of gravity, meaning that more weight compresses and strengthens the clips holding them in place.
The teardrop pallet rack design allows for easy reconfiguration, meaning that you and your staff can adjust the height of the shelving or reinforce it to accommodate larger loads without additional hardware.
Other benefits of teardrop racking include:
- Secure, reliable storage for pallets
- Customizability and compatibility
- Quick, easy assembly and disassembly
- Stores goods vertically in various levels to maximize space
Are Teardrop Pallet Racks Compatible with Other Pallet Racking Systems?
One of the primary benefits of teardrop pallet racks is that they are nearly universally compatible, meaning that you can purchase used pallet racks from a variety of manufacturers and still trust them to work together.
The vast majority of teardrop pallet racking systems utilize the same universal teardrop design due to general demand and desire for customization. While you should always check with your pallet rack supplier, you’ll likely be able to purchase supplemental teardrop pallet racking or additional components without worrying about compatibility.
However, while most teardrop pallet racks have the same design, the materials and manufacturers used can influence the racking’s overall performance and weight capacity. We recommend avoiding using different manufacturers’ beams in the same bay or beam level, unless you’re certain they’re seamlessly compatible.

Why Choose Teardrop Pallet Racking System for Your Warehouse?
In addition to their near-universal compatibility, teardrop pallet racks are a great storage solution for just about every type of warehouse application. They work perfectly for operations that need any sort of flexibility in their storage, since their height and width can be adjusted so easily. Teardrop racks also work well for facilities that may need to expand or want additional storage, since add-ons can be purchased from a different manufacturer and can be assembled with existing staff.
