A pallet rack workbench is a heavy-duty bench with storage that can be made mobile and used in workshops and industrial applications. These workbenches are designed to provide a strong and durable work surface while maximising space utilisation in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, and other similar settings. Space Rescue has two main types of pallet rack workbenches for sale in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Perth.

1. Pallet Rack Workbench Standard (PRS)

The PRS is a two-tier workshop heavy-duty workbench for sale with one underbench shelf. It can also be supplied as a mobile pallet rack workbench.

Two tier blue and orange Pallet Racking Workbench made from heavy duty Pallet Racking materials.

a) Bench Heights

The standard heavy-duty workbench height is 920mm from the ground to the bench surface.

b) Beam and Overall Bench Lengths

The beam lengths listed below contribute directly to the overall length of the Pallet Rack Work Bench. The overall length is calculated by adding the beam lengths plus 90mm for every frame required. Longer benches are easily created by joining two or more bays together. For example, a two-bay workbench using 1372mm plus 1524mm beams would require three frames. It’s overall length would be 90mm + 1372mm + 90mm + 1524mm + 90mm = 3166mm.

  • 1524mm
  • 1829mm
  • 2133mm
  • 2438mm
  • 2591mm

3. Add castors to make a mobile workbench

You may choose to add “a set of wheels,” that is, castors, to allow you to move your industrial workbench around, for example. These castors work especially well on smooth, clean concrete floors.

In summary, there is a choice of either swivel, fixed, braked, or non-braked in our range of six castors. The addition of a brake is undoubtedly a handy safety feature to encourage your mobile pallet racking workbench to stay put.

Furthermore, there are several different types of baseplates depending on whether you wish to mount the castors using four bolts or just a single bolt. Some of these castors are also compatible with our industrial steel workbenches.

Another factor to consider is the load to be applied to the mobile pallet racking workbench. Within this castor range, three castors are load-rated at 100 kg per castor, while the other three are rated at 300 kg per castor.

Lastly, the wheel material is red in colour and made from polyurethane. The diameter varies according to the capacity. The medium-duty castor (100kg capacity) has a 100mm diameter wheel (and 30mm wide), while the heavy-duty castors have a 125mm diameter wheel (and 50mm width).

4. Finishes

Pallet Rack Workbenches are quite durable in performance and finish. Moreover, the frames (or vertical components) use pre-galvanised steel, giving them a silver appearance due to the zinc finish. Additionally, the beams (horizontal members) feature a powder coat enamel paint finish, presenting an orange colour that offers a smart contrast with the frames.


5. Strength

The pallet rack workbench is made from pallet racking materials. It is a very strong bench for a number of reasons.

Firstly, the components that form the skeleton of these units are all made out of steel.

Secondly, cold rolling with a number of folds forms these components. The nature of the fold is that it improves the stiffness of a steel section and improves its buckling characteristics.

Thirdly, the front-to-back rigidity is second to none due to the incorporation of a truss-like support frame in lieu of simple posts.

Finally, the left-to-right stability and load-carrying capacity of the bench itself are not just due to the steel materials used but also to the inherent strength of the pallet racking beam-to-frame connection.


6. Benefits

The main benefits of this style of bench are the variety of sizes, versatility, modularity, and strength.

(a) Variety of sizes

Similar to its big brother, pallet racking, there are many off-the-shelf sizes available in both the frames and beams to make an array of different sizes.

(b) Versatility

As outlined in the usage section, there are lots of different accessories available to change the style and functionality. For example, with the simple addition of castors, you can create a mobile workbench.

(c) Modularity

Modularity of components allows for easy addition of beam levels and extra bays to change the configuration and purpose of the bench.


7. Pallet Racking Workbench Options and Accessories

(a) Board supports… add extra strength to the shelf and are available for 838mm and 1219mm deep shelves.
