The best pallet racking solutions are the ones that are designed to exactly meet a particular storage challenge. It?s always about making the most of the space. It?s always about providing excellent storage density and accessibility.
Here we look at a few different pallet racking solutions. These are real life solutions to real life racking challenges. Solutions are always chosen to have the best impact for the business involved.
Narrow aisle pallet racking is a great choice where space is limited and high levels of accessibility are needed. Very narrow aisle (VNA) is a popular choice too. The narrow aisle system can mean 100% access to every pallet in the warehouse, making access fast and efficient. The aisle width can be as low as 1600mm, with automated picking devices a popular choice.
Powered mobile pallet racking is another option for space saving, radically cutting down on the aisle space. Pallet racking bases are designed to move electrically, so all the racking is moveable and only one aisle space is required for access.
For many pallet racking installations decisions about the nature of the product and the planned stock control will be right at the heart of the discussion. A key decision will be whether to use LIFO (last in first out), FIFO (first in first out) or FILO (first in last out).
Pallet racking systems using LIFO are drive in pallet racking and push back pallet racking.
FIFO is particularly important for perishable goods. An example of a pallet racking system using FIFO is live racking.
FILO is relevant for stock with longer life where density of storage is important.
Drive in pallet racking creates high density warehouse storage and is ideal where stock rotation frequency is low. Drive in and drive through pallet racking systems are designed to store large quantities of similar pallets. Pallets are placed so they slide backwards on a rail, meaning deeper storage and higher density in the warehouse.
Where products have a short life span a FIFO system is ideal and live racking comes into its own as the solution. Roller conveyors are used to control pallets. The conveyors have brake rollers installed to control the pallets as they pass down the incline.
If you want to maximise your warehouse space through the use of second hand or new pallet racking, please don?t hesitate to get in touch with us on 0800 345 7088 or send an email firstname.lastname@example.org
