The simplest of all Pallet Rack Storage Systems provides access to every pallet.
Low cost equipment can be used offering simple adjustability and adaptability.
Storage density is low with only 35% floor space used and only 25% cubic space used.
Double Deep Racking
Double-deep stacking increases warehouse capacity by up to 30% compared to “single-deep” warehouse operations.
Double-deep stacking is mainly used on warehouse trucks like Reachtrucks and Articuladet fork lift trucks.
These single-cylinder telescopic forks are ideal for double-deep pallet storage.
Pallet Flow Racking
Pallet flow rack systems can range from 2 - 12 or more pallet deep. It can be fitted with a number of accessories to aid in safe, effective distribution including entry guides, ramp stops, and speed controllers.
In pallet flow rack , the rack supports inclined rollers or wheels that allow pallets to glide from the back (loading) aisle to the front (picking) aisle.
Drive In/ Drive Through Racking
Pallets are stored on support rails that are attached to uprights and are accessed by a lift truck. The lift truck drives into the system with the load elevated to the height of the rail and places it in the selected storage location.
The lift truck is able to enter through both ends of the system for loading and unloading allowing for a FIFO storage option but requiring an additional aisle.
Carton Flow Racking
The Carton Flow Rack system, also called Carton Live Storage, permits high density storage of cartons and light products, leading to savings in space and improved stock turnover control.
It saves operating time and perfectly adapts to warehouses with a large volume of manual picking operations.
Push Back Racking
Push-Back Racking is a live storage system for accumulation of pallets, just like the Live Pallet Racking FIFO system (AR Live Storage), but designed for LIFO type load management (last pallet in, first pallet out).
Push-back racking for pallets has a single loading and unloading area, at the front of the structure, and the unit loads are stored by pushing the previous ones towards the back of the rack.
