Kornylak Manufactures PalletfloŽ Rails For Pallet Flow RacksKornylak will help you design practical, cost effective PalletfloŽ rail solutions for use on gravity flow conveyors and live storage systems. The PalletfloŽ rails will work on most racks. The Kornylak Corporation prefers to use structural steel racks or heavy-duty racks that have infinitely adjustable beams.
There are two different PalletfloŽ rail configurations: Single row of wheels and double row of wheels. The double row of wheels has a staggered wheel pattern. Both have optional wheel spacing.
There are three types of PalletfloŽ rails:
Palletflo rails come in three standard lengths: 8', 10', and 12'. However, we can custom make the rails to any length you need.
There are two steel weights used to make the rails: 12 gage and 10 gage. The standard 12 gage will hold loads up to 4100 lbs. on two rails with a 5' span. The heavy 10 gage will hold up to 6200 lbs in the same 5' span.
PalletfloŽ rails have two available coatings:
There are two different PalletfloŽ rail configurations: rails with a single row of wheels and rails with a double row of wheels. The double row of wheels has a staggered wheel pattern.
Type and Quantity of Rails Needed
Depending on the total pallet weight, two single row rails will usually suffice for most common wood pallets. Double row rails are used for pallets with heavy loads or on pallets with insufficient width on cross-wise bottom boards. Pallets with very heavy loads or with thin bottom boards may need to use more than 2 rails. It is important to design practical, cost effective PalletfloŽ rails to achieve the best solution for your gravity flow live storage systems.
Standard wheel spacing for PalletfloŽ rails:
It is important to calculate the proper wheel spacing, because the maximum recommended load capacity of each PalletfloŽ wheel is 80 lbs (the weight at which the maximum hysteresis effect is realized). The double row rails will require more than 2 rails when the total load capacity exceeds 80 lbs. per wheel.
There is a simple formula for determining the maximum wheel spacing in a 2 rail system: Spacing (inches) = (Total board width X 160) / Load (lbs.). Spacing should not exceed 5" without testing. Three rail systems, which are sometimes used for sagging pallets or to reduce wheel loading, require special consideration and it is best to consult the factory.
