Mallard Manufacturing has rebranded its wheeled pallet flow rack systems to provide greater product clarity. Mallard’s two pallet flow wheels consist of the popular Magnum Wheel and the recently renamed M-150 wheel.

Magnum Wheel is known for its robust design, durable construction, and exceptional load capacity of 330 pounds (lbs.) per wheel. Magnum is the system of choice for heavy-duty applications and harsh warehouse climates. The M-150 shares the shielded bearings, wide surface area, and ribbed reinforcement of the Magnum wheel but offers a lower-cost alternative for load weights under 3,000 lbs. in ambient warehouse climates.

Pallet flow wheels are used in both pallet flow rack and push-back flow racking applications.

Features of the M-150 Wheel include:

  • Per-wheel capacity of 150 lbs.
  • Best suited for total load weights under 3,000 lbs.
  • Ideal for temperate warehouse climates
  • Lower cost
  • Ribbed on both sides to prevent outer rim damage.

Features of the Magnum Wheel include:

  • Rated for 330 lbs. per wheel and -40 °F
  • Ideal for total load weights over 3,000 lbs.
  • 0.125” wider than competitor wheels
  • Best choice for cold storage and freezers
  • Ribbed on both sides to prevent outer rim damage.

Additionally, the Mallard Engineering Testing Lab is a gratis optional service for customers, providing in-house testing for customers to evaluate gravity flow lane design with their pallets and simulated loads before finalizing and installing their solution. All testing is captured on video for the customer. The Mallard team makes any recommendations and retests if necessary.

Customers may find that the most economical solution for their pallet flow rack is to create hybrid rails that combine the robust Magnum wheels with the versatile M-150 wheels. Hybrid designs offer an ideal solution for specific pallet flow rack applications, enhancing system durability and reducing initial investment and ongoing maintenance costs.
