Galvanised Racking Load Tables

Beam Load Table (Kg)

The Beam load Table gives an indication only of the safe load, uniformly distributed, in Kg, that may be carried per shelf consisting of front and back pipes when used as continuous beams.

For uneven load distributions or single spans, the required tube size must be determined by standard bending moment calculations assuming a Kee Klamp joint to give a simply supported beam.

At loads greater than 900Kg consideration must be given to set screw slip.

Aluminium Racking Load Tables

Aluminium Beam Load Tables (Kg)

Values shown have a safety factor of 2 built into them and are based on the limit state of the material used.

The values in for the Aluminium Beam Load Table are an indication of a UDL that a rack consisting of two continuous support tubes can support. For uneven load distributions, the required tube size must be determined by standard bending moment and deflection calculations assuming the KEE LITE joint to give a simply supported beam.

At loads greater than 770Kg* consideration must be given to grubscrew slippage. (*A safety factor of 2 being applied in this instance.)
