Selective Racking

The selective pallet racking system is the best solution for warehouses that need to store palletized products with a wide range of SKUs. The advantages of selective racking are direct access to each pallet and SKU, easy control of stock, and it is adaptable to any volume, weight or size of goods.

In order to store a great number of pallets, double deep racks can be installed, enabling one pallet to be placed in front of another on each side of an aisle.

Pallet Flow Rack

Pallet flow rack is an ideal system for warehouses of perishable goods, or any goods that require the First In First Out (FIFO) system of inventory management. Gravity flow rack is slightly inclined, allowing the pallets to slide down to the picking side at a controlled pace. The advantages of pallet flow rack are that it enables the FIFO system of inventory control, maximum space utilization, and time and space savings in pallet handling.

Drive-In Pallet Rack

Drive-In Racks allow a lift truck to enter the rack from one side to pick up or pull out pallets. This is done because pallets can slide backwards on a continuous rail. Forklifts drive into the rack to access pallets tow or more deep. The size of the warehouse is the only thing that limits the depth of a bay. Drive in pallet rack requires fewer aisles, allowing up to 75% more useable storage space. Drive-In or Drive Through rack works well in cold storage applications, due to the need to store as many pallets as possible in as little expensive freezer space as possible. Also, if there is not a wide variety of products stored in the racks drive-in racks may work well. Because of the way drive-in rack is utilized it is subject to more abuse, so rack integrity and strength are important factors.

Push-Back Pallet Rack

With push-back pallet rack, pallets are placed on a set of trolleys that are pushed along rolling rails. These rails are built on a slight incline, lower at the front, so that the pallets at the back move forward when the pallet closest to the aisle is removed. It allows up to four pallets deep to be stored per level. Push-Back rack is ideal for storing medium-turnover products, with two or more SKU. Advantages of push-back rack are space savings, high storage density, and loading is carried out in a central aisle.
