If you have a lot of inventory that shifts on a regular basis, drive in rack is a high density pallet rack shelving solution you may want to consider.
While traditional static rack storage allows for many rows of pallet racking with aisles between individual rows, high density storage shelving allows for a much more dense, compact arrangement of your stored product.
Drive in rack system allows more efficient use of available space than traditional multi-aisle selective pallet racks systems because they are compacted into a tighter area. In fact, when compared to a conventional selective rack system, the same amount of storage can be achieved with a high density drive in pallet rack shelving system in 80% less space.
High density storage racks work by utilizing standard pallet rack uprights in conjunction with rail beams, rails to store the pallet loads in a very dense configuration.
One Way Drive In – Last In First Out (LIFO)
Material is both stored and retrieved from the same side (entry point) in several aisles. For this reason, the first material put in this system is the last to come out. This works well where shelf life is not a major concern. This system also works well in cold storage environments or warehouse freezers.
Two Way Drive In – Multi First In Last Out System
Arranging drive in to be enter-able from two sides allows for maximum space usage and easy product accessibility from two separate sides.
Drive Through – First In First Out (FIFO)
Free access from both sides allows materials to be stored from one end and retrieved from the other. With this capability, a first in/first out storage arrangement is made possible. This system is used where there is expiration-dated material or wherever shelf life is of major concern.
