Drive-in racking, also known as drive-through racking, is high density storage racking system. Drive-in racking usually operates with reach lift truck or stacker with FILO (first in last out) mode. It mostly applies to storing goods with less variety but large inventory flow, especially cold room and food warehouse whose storage space costs are relatively high.
Drive-In Rack and Drive-Thru racking are terms that are alike. In some environments it can be difficult to differentiate between the two. To make it simple, Drive-In racking requires operators to drive into the racking system from one side and remove pallets from the same entry. Some Drive-In rack systems have a wall or are otherwise closed at the opposite end.
A simple way to identify a Drive-In Rack Systems is its LIFO inventory management. Product is rotated in a Last-In, First-Out inventory manner because of the single entry/exit point.
The draw to a Drive-In rack system is its extremely efficient storage concentration. Pallets are stored back-to-back without aisles for exceptionally dense storage. This style system is an excellent solution for product that is not time or date sensitive, or for fast moving pallets that are rotated frequently.
Heda offers many variations of Drive-in/Drive-thru racking with structural or roll formed product. The guide rail allows pallets to settle easily into the bay. It has a tapered edge at the front entry point.
● Applies to cold room with large stock but few goods type
● First in last out storage mode
● Narrow aisle improves space utilization
Drive-In rack operators must be very careful not to damage the pallet racking. Because pallets are stored so densely and a forklift operator must enter the pallet racking system with only a small clearance on either side, a Drive-In rack system must be checked for damage frequently. Once pallet rack damage is noticed it must be reported and properly repaired or replaced. A strict safety standard must be adhered to with a Drive-In rack system.
