Selective Pallet Rack
Selective pallet racking is the most common type of pallet storage used today. Selective rack uses uprights and a pair of cross beams to create a “shelf” for storing a pallet. Depending on the height of your pallet and ceiling, selective rack systems typically have multiple levels (shelves) per bay. A bay is typically only one pallet deep, although two-deep systems are also a possibility.
- Low investment compared to more dense storage solutions
- Accessibility to all pallets
- FIFO or LIFO
- Low storage density due to aisles between rows of rack
Drive-In and Drive-Through Pallet Rack
Drive-in racking is a type of storage system that allows fork trucks to drive directly into a bay. Pallets rest on side rails rather than cross beams, which leaves the face of the bay open. The uprights are typically tied together at the top of the upright to add rigidity to the system. The only difference between drive-in and drive-through racks is whether there is an entrance at only one end (drive-in) or both ends (drive-through).
This style of rack is commonly 6-8 pallets deep per bay. Fork trucks elevate a load to the proper level and load it in the back of the system first. The second pallet will be placed in the second position from the back and continue until a lane is full. Drive-in racks are LIFO, while drive-through racks are typically FIFO. This type of system is best suited for storing a large quantity of pallets of the same product.
- High storage density
- Lower cost than a flow rack system
- Poor accessibility to all pallets
- Rack often gets damaged since fork trucks drive inside the system
DOUBLE DEEP RACKING
Double Deep is similar to selective racking; but pallets are now stored two rows deep instead of one. This type of racking therefore requires specialised pallet handling equipment using ether a specialised forklift or a standard unit a with double deep handling attachment.
The most common forklift used for double-deep handing is a reach truck. One key disadvantage with reach trucks is that they require a counterbalance for loading and unloading the pallet onto trucks, which can double capital investment requirements for your pallet handling equipment.
- Increased storage capacity compared with Selective Racking
- Medium to low storage system.
- Can increase pallet storage by as much as 10-15% depending on racking layout.
- Reduced SKU’s accessibility
- LIFO inventory management.
- Special trucks required.
