Drive in Pallet Rack Systems
Drive-in racking is designed for the storage of homogenous products. It accommodates a large number of pallets. This system makes better use of the available surface and height space than any other.
The installation is made up of a set of racking units that form inner loading aisles, with support rails for the pallets. The forklift trucks enter these inner aisles with their load held higher than the level at which it is to be deposited.
Each loading aisle has support rails on both sides. These are arranged on different levels and the pallets are placed on top. This racking system is made of extremely robust material, thus making it suitable for storing fully-loaded pallets.
The drive-in system can accommodate as many pallets as there are loading aisles. The number of pallets will depend on the depth and height of the loading aisles. It is advisable to store products with the same pallet in each loading aisle, in order to avoid unnecessary pallet manoeuvres. The depth of each aisle will depend on the number of pallets per row, the space available and the length of time they will be stored.
|Drive In / Drive Thru Racks
For cost-effective, high-density storage, Drive-in / Drive-thru racking is often the choice. Requiring fewer aisles, and providing better cube utilization than selective rack, drive-in / drive-thru rack allows you to store up to 75% more pallets than selective racking. Because forklifts drive directly into the rack, drive-in / drive-thru racks are subject to more abuse than any other rack structure. Drive-in rack is engineered and manufactured to better stand up to the punishment, allowing us to become the market leader in drive-in racking.
We offers a wide variety of safety options for drive-in racking, including offset front legs, heavy horizontals, reinforcement posts, welded-angle column protectors, free standing column protectors, wider footplates, and seismic designs. Request a quote now for custom design information.
