Republic Pallet Rack & Keystone Pallet Racking

Republic Pallet Rack is less common than it used to be, however there is still a large amount of this racking used today. Republic racking is also known by Keystone racking – because the holes in the uprights look like a keystone. Republic racking is most often yellow for the beams and gray for the upright columns. Republic rack beam clips have hooks with square, not round, tops.
