Enter the maximum item/pallet load (lbs), the number of loads per beam, and the number of beams per stack into the Pallet Racking Capacity Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Pallet Racking Capacity.

## Pallet Racking Capacity Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Pallet Racking Capacity.

PRC = ML * #LPB * #B

Variables:

• PRC is the Pallet Racking Capacity (lbs)
• ML is the maximum item/pallet load (lbs)
• #LPB is the number of loads per beam
• #B is the number of beams per stack

## How to Calculate Pallet Racking Capacity?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Pallet Racking Capacity.

1. First, determine the maximum item/pallet load (lbs).
2. Next, determine the number of loads per beam.
3. Next, determine the number of beams per stack.
4. Next, gather the formula from above = PRC = ML * #LPB * #B.
5. Finally, calculate the Pallet Racking Capacity.
6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

maximum item/pallet load (lbs) = 500

number of loads per beam = 3

number of beams per stack = 2

PRC = ML * #LPB * #B =  ?
