Jracking Drive in rack is ideal for stocking large quantities of relatively few product types. It can reduce overall square footage requirements by 35% or more compared to a standard Selective Rack configuration. Requiring fewer aisles, and providing better cube utilization than selective rack, drive-in / drive-thru rack allows you to store up to 75% more pallets than selective racking. Because forklifts drive directly into the rack, drive-in racks are subject to more abuse than any other rack structure.
●Last in first out and First in first out configurations
●Load rails feature a flared entry design, allowing for easier bay access
●Reduces space, cuts cost, and holds more loads with its deep lane storage
●Space-saver low profile arms increase clearance and decrease possible product damage
●Welded rail stops prevent loads from being pushed off and improve safety
●Eliminates the need for multiple aisles
●Favors density as opposed to the selectivity of Selective Pallet Rack
●Designed specifically to suit your pallets and forklifts
Advantages of drive in rack
Warehouse Space Saver
All racks integrated as one complete structure to minimize the waste using of spaces.
E.g. 900 pallets storage space comparison (shown as image)
Conventional pallet rack:
Whole warehouse 30x20 sq.m.
Radio shuttle rack system:
Only 40% of the space 14x18 sq.m.
Massive Storage and Pick-up
The drive in / througth racks are the highly integrated system which is very suitable for massive storage and pick-up. For different warehousing management purposes, the system could be settled by First-In-Last-Out (FILO) mode or First-In-First-Out (FIFO) mode. FILO mode is suitable for the goods with long-term or no expiration warranty, such as electrical products, clothes and shoes, office supplies, tobacco etc., and the FIFO mode is usually applied for short-time validation products with pack-to-deliver purpose in manufacture warehousing facilities, such as pharmaceutical products, food and drinks etc.
Type selection of drive-in system
Warehouse Circumstances & Storage Objective
The size of the warehouse decides the rack layout including 1) the length, width and height of the warehouse, and 2) the locations of the doors and gates, pillars, power boxes, firefighting facilities etc.
Storage objective also affect the choosing and layout of racking system. Considering the safety factor of the drive in / through rack system, the total height should not exceed 5 levels (usually 7 meters / 24ft.), and depth of the lane should not exceed 7 storage space units (usually 9 meters / 28 ft.), and pallet weight should not exceed 1100 kgs (2400 lbs).
The width, maximum elevation height and the turning radius all affect the rack selection and layout.
