requires fewer aisles, allowing you to store up to 75%
more pallet in the same space.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 backward on a continuous rail. Forklifts drive into the rack to access pallets two or more deep. Drive-in Rack
can be configured to store loads three, four or more deep, creating extremely dense storage. A drive-in system, that stores pallets four high and five deep, for example, can hold 20 pallets
in each bay. In a drive-in system, lift trucks drive into the front of a storage bay, place a load in the desired position and the back out. To allow lift trucks in to the bays, drive-n systems are designed without traditional beams placed across the bays. Instead, pallets rest on rails that run along the insides of the bays, perpendicular to the aisles. Pallets
in a drive-in racking system are stored on a last-in/first-out basis. Each bay is typically dedicated to a single product, so drive-in rack is best used in warehouse storing large quantities of the same product. Drive-in systems severely limit access to products stored in rear positions. As a result, say experts, this type of storage is best suited for situations in which an entire bay of products would be moved at once such as in staging products for shipping. Drive–through rack
, this design is the same as drive-in rack. The difference is drive- through rack allows life trucks to enter the bays form either end. This considerably increases access to pallet loads, but requires an aisle on both ends of the racking system. Drive-through rack can be loaded from one end and emptied from the other, allowing first-in/first-out product. rotation.
