Protect walls, doors, piping & other warehouse items:

Adapt-a-Stop® load stops easily cover the length of several bays, adapting to a variety of bay sizes, using standard pallet rack horizontal load beams, strut channel, or slotted vertical beams.  Food storage warehouses will greatly benefit from having aligned pallets since complying with rodent trap placement regulations is made easier.  Pallets stay in the bay because of the Adapt-a-Stop® load stop, standardizing clearances from walls and other items nearby, and complying with fire code regulations for maintaining longtitudinal flue spaces.

Adapt-a-Stop® is versatile!



As shown, nearby items such as bi-parting door pathways
 door mechanisms can easily be protected from damage too.

Position the Adapt-a-Stop® load stop at desired height to
protect nearby items.  




Pallet rack bays stay neat & tidy:



Install the Adapt-a-Stop® load stop at any desired
height to manage unruly product or bulky pallets. 
As shown, a pallet of onions is threatening to lean
outside of the bay.  But, the Adapt-a-Stop
® load stop
keeps the pallet contents in place. Adapt-a-Stop
connection brackets greatly increase material handlers'
productivity by providing a load stop guide to align
pallets.  Less hit and miss placement!



Use pallet rack safety netting attached to Adapt-a-Stop® 
load stops to help contain product within bays. Netting shown 
is produced by Industrial Netting, Minneapolis, MN.


Just one pallet of brackets can cover hundreds of bays:

A pallet of 500 Adapt-a-Stop® brackets can quickly and easily create load stops for as many as 490 pallet rack bays; depending on the number of end rows being covered.  As shown in the photo, a pallet that's 3 1/2 feet high can hold 500 brackets. The brackets pack together conveniently so they take up minimal space.

One-piece load stop bars can't compare:

Other horizontal load stops on the market today are only available via special order to be fabricated to fit each bay size and desired offset. Note that longtitudinal flue space might be encroached, thus violating fire code regulations, if using this type of bar close to sprinkler heads. Plus, the one-piece bars aren't as sturdy as Adapt-a-Stop® load stop systems and could easily be damaged over time.







Accidents & violations are too common:

Open pallet rack bays are easily susceptible to misplaced pallets. Companies should not risk exposing their workers or customers to possible accidents from poorly stored products.  Damaged facilities, ruined product, or food safety storage violations are all too common.  Flue space violations for fire protection regulations are also a concern.

Other vertical load stops can't compare:
Most vertical load stop bars attached to the back of horizontal load beams are not able to withstand repeated impact from pallets. As shown in the photos below, vertical bars in bays on the ground floor are most vulnerable to damage since the bar is usually only attached and supported from the top with one bolt. As a result, bars bend easily or slide out of place, rendering the load stop much less useful.

Instead, install Adapt-a-Stop® vertical brackets for structurally sound vertical load stops. They are double bolted to prevent movement and fit tightly around a horizontal load beam. Combine a vertical Adapt-a-Stop® load stop with a horizontal Adapt-a-Stop® load stop at ground level to maxmize strength (see photo on left below). Alternatively, you can purchase a vertical beam floor mount bracket to secure the vertical beam to the floor (see photo on right below).

Adapt-a-Stop® brackets can be created per your specifications to fit your clearance, pallet rack style, or other needs.
