Pallet Rack Drum Cradles - Storing Steel Drums

Warehouses everywhere have pallet racks to store products, equipment, and other materials. Storing and transporting industrial drums can be hassle if you do not have the right equipment. Drum cradles, trucks, lifters, racks, dollies and more may be necessary when handling drums.

Storing Drums Vertically or Horizontally

Most of the time, drums should be stored horizontally. However, plastic drums should be stored vertically with no heavy weight on top. Plastic drums can be damaged if stored horizontally or with weight on them. Some drums should be covered so water or other contaminants won't be able to enter the drum.

Steel drums can be stored horizontally on racks to optimize your space. Depending on your rack height, it may be more suitable to store drums vertically on a drum pallet. Make sure to store steel drums off the floor and away from hazardous materials. Depending on what is inside the drum, steel drums should be stored in a cool and stable environment to prevent any damage. 

Steel drums are often transported in mobile drum cradles or on pallets.  A forklift can be used to store drums onto pallet racking with a pallet rack drum cradle for the most optimal and convenient storage.
