Drive-in or drive-through racking is ideal if you’re looking for a very economical, bulk storage system. It’s almost as high density as block stacking, but is safer and reduces the risk of product damage.
Drive-in pallet racking gives access to just one side of the aisle, so it operates on a first in, last out (FILO) basis. Drive-through racking gives access to both aisles, so you can use a first in, first out (FIFO) stock rotation system. This is limited, however, by the need to empty lanes at every level.
Drive-in and drive-through racking are particularly well-suited to:
They enable you to:
This type of racking eliminates the need for several aisles between the racking, so you can use up to 85% of your floor space for storage.
Drive-in racking is relatively slow for retrieval. However, self-centring rails can be fitted to the racks to position pallets automatically. Pallets can then be picked immediately without any need to realign them.
Drive-in and drive-through racking presents a significantly lower risk of damage to pallets than block stacking, while being almost as high density. Using truck and pallet guidance can minimise this further.
You can keep costs to a minimum by using conventional forklifts with this kind of racking.
