Once all the necessary materials are submitted to your local city building department, a pallet rack permit usually takes anywhere from 2 to 6 weeks depending on how busy the department is.

Most cities require permits for storage over 8 feet. It is the owner’s responsibility to verify whether they are required or not.  Some cities vigorously enforce the codes and your business can be red tagged (shut down) or fined (often double the amount of the cost for the permit) if you do not have permits.

The fire department requires high pile storage permits for any storage over 12 feet in height. This involves reviewing the rack configuration, egress travel distances to exits, sprinkler capacities, aisles widths, type of building, type of product being stored and other fire related information.
