Specially constructed lanes of gravity inclined tracks stacked side by side and on top of each other within a pallet rack framework form a solid block of storage that is fed in from one end and unloaded at the other. Consistent loads are stored in each lane, for the same SKU. Automatic rotation is provided rack utilization is often at 90%.
Carton Flow consists of an accessible arrangement of flow levels increasing pick performance and resulting in reduced operator activity and increased productivity. Carton Flow racks feed products within reach of the operator.
The warehouse designed by using racking system structure as a supporting structure for building to reduce the construction work. Reduce construction time and costing compared with normal process warehouse construction.
The simplest of all Pallet Rack Storage Systems provides access to every pallet. Low cost equipment can be used offering simple adjustability and adaptability. Storage density is low with only 35% floor space used and only 25% cubic space used.
Cantilever rack is an excellent method of storing long or odd-shaped items like lumber that are to large to store in standard pallet rack. The lack of front posts allows for easy movement and placement of large, hard to handle items.
Modified reach trucks with the ability to stack two pallets deep operating in almostconventional reach truck aisles store pallets in single entry racks. Back to back racks are four pallets deep. This reduces the aisle to rack ratio but also reduces selectivity, (FILO). Trucks lift heights limited by load, to about 9 meters.
