Does a pallet rack need to be anchored to the ground?

Anchoring the pallet rack to the ground is recommended to ensure its stability and resistance in case of impact.

Footplates are used to anchor the pallet racks to the ground. A minimum of one anchor is recommended. They usually have two holes, but installing two anchor bolts so close together could damage the concrete slab. On some plates, the holes are located at the front and back to allow the installation of two anchor bolts.
