If storage capacity is the main priority within your warehouse, then drive-in pallet racking is an ideal solution as it provides an excellent method of condensing storage into smaller spaces. Drive-in pallet racking is a storage system that allows you to make the most out of your space both vertically and horizontally. Drive-in racking allows forklifts to enter the storage lanes to deposit and extract pallets. Therefore operating aisles are eliminated in this type of systems which saves a great amount of available space.
The advantages of drive-in pallet racking
There are many advantages which drive-in pallet racking provide. These include:
- Maximising effective control of overall facility and storage space
- It eliminates unneeded operating aisles
- It allows you to store as many product types as you need due to there being loads of lanes
- High density storages – maximising the cubic space available
- Ideal for cold and chill storage applications
Drive-in pallet racking works on a first pallet in, last pallet out system. This is ideal for storing seasonal products, where large quantities of limited stock items are held. For environments where loads are delivered and dispatched in bulk batches, this is not an issue. In fact, for non-date sensitive items, it’s ideal, offering huge increases in overall warehouse storage capacity.
Maintenance of pallet racking safety
Drive-in rack systems generally require little maintenance however, it is highly recommended to perform regular safety checks to ensure that no damage has been made to the storage system which could compromise structural integrity or operator safety.
