Please find below brief descriptions of the more popular styles of pallet racking:
Wide Aisle Standard Pallet Racking
Wide aisle pallet racking is the most utilised choice of warehouse racking. This popularity is due to the versatility of the design. Each beam is adjustable. This means you can change the type of goods stored simply by raising or lowering the beams to a new position. Each palletised load is individually supported and individually accessible.
Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking
Narrow aisle pallet racking saves space and maximises the storage capacity of palletised loads where floor space is limited. You can also maximise the height at which the goods can be stacked. The precision design allows fast accessability to each palletised load and quick order picking straight from the racking. There are special VNA trucks for this pallet racking.
Double Deep Pallet Racking
Double Deep Pallet Racking is a variant on standard adjustable beam racking. Allows pallets to be stored 2 deep or 4 pallets deep between aisles. Even though pallets are stored 2 deep you can still access both loads from the same aisle. This racking is a highly efficient space saving storage system. Also an efficient FILO (First-in, last-out) stock management system.
Drive-In Pallet Racking
Drive-In Pallet Racking is ideal for storing large quantities of the same goods. By dispensing with access aisles you can increase your overall storage capacity up to 80%. Pallets are stacked using the first-in, last-out (FILO) principle. Palletised loads are stored on guide rails, allowing rows to be stacked next to each other.
Pallet Live Racking
Pallet live racking is a first-in, first out system (FIFO) allowing you to operate automatic stock rotation. Each lane is usually dedicated to storing one product variant or for marshalling loads in or out.
Pallets are loaded on rollers sloping towards the pick face. When you remove a pallet, gravity and an automatic braking system bring the pallets stacked behind it to the front of the rack at a controlled pace, so your picking face is always full.
