AA-4. Vertical Strut Bracket (Holds 1 5/8" Strut Stop Beams)

Vertical Strut Brackets can be used on pallet rack bays in order to ensure flue space is kept clear and to protect warehouse items.(See connection drawing). Most fire code regulations require at least 6″ space between pallet material. Brackets can be used against a wall or on racks that are back to back combined with strut channel material such as Unistrut, Superstrut, etc.. (See top view drawing). See photo gallery for installation examples.

Strut channel material is commonly used in the building industry.  Combining widely available strut channel material with Adapt-a-Stop brackets creates less costly load stops.  Once in place, the strut load stop can also be used to mount pipes or other needed items attached with strut hardware.




  • Attach vertical Adapt-a-Stop brackets to desired horizontal pallet rack load beams, then secure in place
    with two 3/8″ x 4″ bolts, nuts, & washers. Then attach 1 strut channel against a wall or 2 strut channel
    beams to create vertical load stops for back to back load stops; automatically maintaining 6″ flue space
    for fire code regulations.

As with all pallet rack manufacturers' uprights and horizontal beams, Adapt-a-Stop products must be correctly clipped on, screwed on, or bolted in place with minimum 3/8" bolts, washers, lock washers, and nuts to prevent them from loosening and possibly causing damage or injury. Adapt-a-Stop is not responsible for improper installation or use. For higher placements, we recommend using either a Stand-Alone model or vertical brackets since the AA-1 model horizontal load stop may violate flue space, depending on pallet rack location.
