Drive-in pallet rack requires
fewer aisles, allowing you to store up to 75% more pallets in the same space
Heavy-Duty Drive-In Pallet
Racks for High-Density Storage
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 two or more deep. You are limited in the depth of storage for a
particular bay by the size of your facility. Drive-In racks are typically
subject to more abuse than selective racks due to the way they are utilized, so
rack integrity and strength are important factors. It is ideal rack for cooler
or freezer applications.
This is a last-in, first-out arrangement for your pallets
Drive-In & Drive-Through Racks offer the ability to
store a large amount of similar loads in a smaller area. Selectivity is
sacrificed, but storage density is outstanding. Drive In Racking can store up to
75% more pallets in the same space than selective racking -- depending on your
application. It requires fewer aisles and is better cubic storage.
Note that many drive in applications can increase their flexibility and storage
density by utilizing
Flow Rail horizontal pallet flow lanes
. You can retrofit
most existing rack systems with this new storage technology.
Single Entry Racks - lift trucks can enter the rack from only one
Double Entry Racks - lift trucks can enter from both sides or a row
of racks. The center of the rack row is stabilized by a beam.
When should you specify Drive-In Racks?
Drive-In Rack is used to store many pallets of a similar SKU or product.
Lift trucks drive into the rack to extract the first pallet they come to.
This is "Last-In, First-Out" storage.
We've installed Drive-In and
Drive-Through Racks in a number of cold storage applications, due to the
need to store as many pallets as possible in as little expensive freezer
space as possible.
When you have seasonal items that
move quickly out of your inventory.
When you have a large amount of
similar items that can be stored in a single pallet position and accessed
If you don't store a wide variety
of loads in the rack.
Drive-In Rack Load Rail
Load Rails are constructed of durable structural angle steel,
providing increased strength and abuse resistance. Standard features include:
Structural angle rails "guide" pallets, ease of use and
Flared rail entry ends allow easy bay access
Space-saver low profile arms increase clearance and
decrease possible product damage
Welded rail stops prevent loads from being pushed off,
2" vertical adjustability
Welded aisle-load arms to eliminate hazardous load
projections into aisles
