Things You Need to Know Before Designing Your Pallet Racking System

Pallet Rack Systems

You know you are running out of floor space and you need to be better ab le to organize and access your product, but what is the right type of pallet rack system for your particular needs?

Here’s a few questions you need to ask yourself before deciding which system is right for you:

  • Do you have a lot of the same product to store or a lot of different products?
  • How often do you need to access your product?
  • What is the weight of your pallet loads?
  • How many pallets will you need to store?
  • Do you have a lot of product you need to store in a small area?

Once you have determined just what you need in a pallet racking system, you need to decide which type of system is right for you.

  • Selective Pallet Racking – the most commonly used system, it provides direct access to many different types of product. It is the least dense form of storage, but allows you the easiest access to all product.
  • Cantilever Rack – designed for direct access of long product such as lumber, tubing, rugs, fabric bolts, metal, etc.
  • Push Back Pallet Racking – high density storage when you have multiple pallets of the same product. Can store from 2 to 5 pallets deep. Last-in / first-out system.
  • Pallet Flow Racking – high density storage for multiple order picking levels, providing for quick inventory turnover. First-in / first-out system.
  • Drive-In / Drive-Thru Pallet Racking – high density storage of a lot of the same product. Stores up to 75” more product and uses 35” less floor space then selective pallet racking. Drive-In is last-in / first-out system. Drive-Thru is First-in / first-out system.
  • Carton Flow Pallet Racking – incline system designed for carton order picking. First-in / first-out system.
