A pallet racking storage system is made up of 2 basic parts: frames (or uprights), and beams (or cross beams). Frames are the vertical structures of a pallet rack system, and beams are the horizontal structures and what you place your pallets on. Beams come in 2 basic designs: Box Beams and Step Beams. Box beams have a basic rectangular shape, similar to the shape of a 2X4 board with clips on the end to attach to a vertical frame.
