Pallet racks Drive-in is a rack storage structure that allows you to use your storage space up to 85%. Storage is more efficient than universal pallet racking. The lack of working corridors and pick-up areas in the Drive-in system allows maximum use of space in the warehouse.
The loading in the Drive-in system for storage and storage of pallets is carried out with forklifts or storage equipment, as the pallets are stacked on horizontal bearing rails. The drivers then remove the pallets from the same entry point where they were loaded. The rack structure is usually installed next to a wall or is closed at one end of the rack block. The Drive-Thru pallet storage system is based on the same concept, but it is designed so that the pallets are serviced on both sides of the rack so that the trucks can pass freely through the rack system.
Drive-In pallet racks are suitable for storing the same type of goods on the FILO principle (first-in, last-out), in which pallets are stored in tunnels one behind the other and one above the other in height. Individual access to each pallet is limited since the first available pallet is the last one placed on the rack, which is a disadvantage when working with different sizes and types of goods. The fact that it is fast-moving and requires access to each item at each moment slows down the speed of work.
Main advantages of the Drive-in pallet racking system:
- Maximum use of storage space - storage of the maximum number of pallets per unit storage volume;
- Suitable for storage of bulky and uniform goods;
- Minimum stock rotation - ideal for storage of goods for seasonal purposes;
- Safe storage of fragile goods - when placing pallets on top of each other is impossible;
- Effective filling of the storage space in cold stores;
