Recent Used Structural Pallet Rack Liquidation

Used Pallet Rack



American Surplus recently completed another used pallet rack liquidation in New England. This job consisted of a large quantity of Used Frazier Structural pallet rack and a smaller lot of Konstant Pallet Rack.  Our team can help you design your project and provide a CAD layout for your pallet rack if needed. We offer nationwide shipping and can give you a quote for installation as well. All of the pallet rack we purchased at this liquidation is the standard 42” deep pallet rack frames. The heights vary from 14’ to 30’ tall, we have 20’, 22’ and 26’ tall uprights as well. Most of the frames feature a double reinforced column up to 84” high. They also have bullnoses for added protection and durability. In addition, they also have a heavy duty 5” x 5.5” footplate. The used pallet rack beams are Frazier beams that measure 95-5/8” long x 4” high, and we have a small lot that are 203” long. All this material is considered structural pallet rack and is suitable for warehouse use. We recommend using pallet supports with this material. American Surplus also acquired some used Konstant pallet rack with this liquidation. The Konstant pallet rack frames we bought are 42” deep and 30’ tall. The beams that go with this lot of material are 96” long x 4” high. Pallet Rack row spacers were also included with this job and help stabilize and space out the pallet rack system. Pallet rack material is available out of our warehouse in Rhode Island. Structural pallet rack provides access to every pallet position always, which is ideal for inventory that moves quickly. It is designed to resist forklift damage, an advantage for freezers and distribution centers. Let our sales team help you get started on your pallet rack project.




Used Conveyor Installation


Used Conveyor Installation


American Surplus recently completed a used conveyor installation out in Reno, NV. This project had two phases of conveyor installations. The first job consisted of 300+ linear  feet of used transport style conveyor, and a small section of accumulation conveyor. The conveyor runs off of 4-5 drives at fixed speed, and pull cord emergency stop kits were installed with the system. The second phase was another 300+ feet of used conveyor in a re-circulation loop with two 180 degree conveyor curves. This section included a 12′ long gap belt with drive and the curves had guard rail attached to keep the material on the conveyor bed.  The system also had a 90 degree spur curve merge setup as well. Conveyor Accessories that were installed included traffic cops, photo eyes, and reflectors. As well as safety features such as more pull cord emergency stop kits. Our conveyor install team strives for professionalism and timeliness with every job they complete. As a compliment to this conveyor system, there was also an 87 lane system of used pallet flow rack installed as well. This system had double wheel staggered style rails. Browse our inventory or speak with one of our salesman to see how American Surplus and its used conveyor can help you and your warehouse without breaking the bank on a new conveyor system.

Check out our most recent pallet rack installation. This was a new teardrop pallet rack job because the size of the job was so large it was more beneficial to the customer to go with the new option. The crew is working hard to complete the job and is almost at the finish line. American Surplus is proud of its ability to provide installation services to its customers nationwide. Our team is trained to assemble the pallet rack frames, pallet rack beams, wire decks and other pallet rack accessories.


Pallet Rack Installation


Teardrop pallet rack is perfect for most warehouses as it is easy to assemble and has a wide variety of capacities to accommodate most requirements. Selective pallet rack provides accessibility to all products at all times. This is important if your inventory has quick turnover. A selective pallet rack system is typically seen in a “big-box” distribution warehouse, as well as in some retail store inventory rooms, cold storage warehouses, wholesale stores, etc.

  • Placement of building doors and columns and other obstructions
  • Inventory accessibility needs
  • Inventory rotation process
  • Pallet size and weight
  • Optimal storage design and process
  • Cost of associated materials and installation
