A Handy Guide To Racking

Wide Aisle Adjustable Racking

  • Adjustable wide aisle pallet racking is the most widely used storage system for all palletised and non-palletised loads
  • Single or double sided runs of racking are separated by wide aisles which can be sized to suit the customer’s existing fork-lift trucks

Double Deep Racking

  • Double deep pallet racking is created by placing two double sided runs together
  • Pallets are stored two deep and are accessed using special trucks with pantograph or telescopic forks

Narrow Aisle Racking

  • Narrow aisle racks consist of the same basic components as conventional racking but with runs placed closer together eliminating the wasted space of a wide aisle
  • The pallets can be stored to a greater height to maximise all available cubic space

Drive-In/Drive-Through Racking

  • Drive in pallet racking is used where high density storage is required 
  • It is frequently used in facilities with a low number of product lines
  • The drive-through systems allows pallets to be loaded or retrieved from either side

Mobile Racking

  • Mobile racking is a specialist high density system often designed for long-term storage of pallets or other heavy duty goods
  • The racking runs are mounted on mobile bases, which run on rails up and down the storage area
  • The base is electronically driven and is normally kept closed leaving one aisle for access

Multi-Tier Racking

  • Multi-tier racks are created using adjustable pallet racking
  • Additional storage floors can be incorporated into the rack with walkways to allow pedestrian access for order picking. This maximises all available headroom and is ideal for storing a wide variety of packaged goods for hand picking
