Pallet Storage Solutions for your Warehouse

Introduction:

Introduction When it comes to maximizing your warehouse space, a pallet storage system that guarantees easy and quick installation is the best solution for your material handling equipment. By choosing the right pallet storage solution for your pallets, you’ll be protecting your pallets against collision from forklifts and, ultimately, extend the expected lifetime. What are some pallet storage methods that could work for the material handling equipment in your warehouse ?

Pallet Flow Rack:

Pallet Flow Rack In this type of pallet storage system, the load is moved from one end of the rack on a conveyor that allows the pallets to be removed in a FIFO (first in) manner. Once a pallet is removed, the next pallet moves into the position of the pallet that was removed. This solution is suitable for warehouses that have high throughput but is a costly option.

Single Deep Pallet Storage:

Single Deep Pallet Storage Single deep  pallet storage  provides access to each of the pallets stored in the rack. This solves the issues of stacking frames and block stacking. When a pallet is removed, space is immediately available for a new piece of material handling equipment. This type of pallet storage solution can be configured in any number of ways with various heights. Most warehouses today have this type of racking in use. But the major disadvantage is that the racks require ample floor space .

Double Deep Pallet Storage:

Double Deep Pallet Storage The double deep pallet rack is a variant on the single deep rack that incorporates two single pallet racks that are placed together. This reduces the number of aisles required but this type of pallet storage solution is susceptible to honeycombing so may not be as efficient as single deep racking. Also, a double reach forklift is required to place and remove pallets from the racking.​

Live Pallet Storage:

Live Pallet Storage A live pallet storage system provides efficient storage of material handling equipment with fewer aisles. This increases storage capacity tremendously.

Drive-In Rack:

Drive-In Rack Drive-In racks provide five to ten pallet storage spaces similar to the double deep racking. The drive-in lanes provide access for the forklift to place and remove the  material handling equipment . However, the forklift has a limited space to move around and this increases the time required to place and remove pallets. The drive-in rack is similar to block stacking as the LIFO (first out) principle is used for pallet retrieval.

An efficient, safe and long-standing pallet storage system supplies major added value in the warehouse. It is possible to obtain affordable yet high-quality material handling equipment for many suppliers in the industry.
