Drive-In Racking

Drive-in racking is a type of storage system that is used to store large quantities of pallets in a warehouse or distribution center. It is called "drive-in" racking because the forklifts or other material handling equipment used to move the pallets are able to drive directly into the storage lanes between the racks.

Drive-in racking is designed to maximize the use of available space by storing pallets two or more deep in each storage lane. This allows for a higher storage density compared to other types of pallet racking systems. However, it also means that access to individual pallets is more limited, as the pallets in the back rows can only be accessed by moving the pallets in the front rows.

Drive-in racking is typically used for storing large quantities of relatively slow-moving or low-rotation products, as it is more efficient for storing a large number of pallets of the same product. It is not suitable for storing a high number of different products, as it can be time-consuming to access individual pallets in the back rows.

Drive-in racking is often used in conjunction with other types of pallet racking systems, such as selective racking or push-back racking, to provide a balance of high density storage and easy access to individual pallets.

Live Storage Racking

This system uses the force of gravity to slide pallets along roller tracks. This storage solution ensures perfect product rotation as well as saving space, and time in pallet handling.

  • The ideal solution for storage of perishable goods. Suitable for any industry or distribution sector.
  • Saves time in pallet handling.
  • Rotates stored products with the FIFO (First In, First Out) system, meaning the first pallet in is also the first to be taken out.

 

Push Back Racking

An accumulative storage system that allows storage of up to four pallets deep per shelf level. This is ideal for storing medium turnover products, with two or more pallets per stock keeping unit.

  • Each level can be used to store a different stock keeping unit.
  • Ensures the loading and unloading process is safer and easier.
  • This is compact storage, meaning the maximum possible use is made of the space available.
