- Loading capacity
- Amount of stock / number of pallets
- Compatibility with forklifts
Types of Pallet Racking
With so many different types of racking available, it can be difficult to know which is the best choice for your warehouse. The most common types of racking and their features are:
Standard Aisle - Affordable, and versatile, standard aisle pallet racking is perfect for most warehouses and is compatible with standard forklifts.
Narrow Aisle – Narrow aisle pallet racking increases your storage by squeezing the aisles together and utilising height, perfect for warehouses that don’t have a big square footage.
Drive In – Using a similar principle to block stacking, drive in pallet racking is a brilliant option for bulk storage.
Pallet Shuttle System – Similar to drive in or pallet flow systems, Pallet shuttle enables high density storage. This Semi-Automated system handles goods inside the racking. This eliminates the need for forklifts to enter the racks.
Pallet Flow – Working on a first in last out principle, pallet flow is good for high density storage and enables easy access to goods.
Push Back – This high density storage system, maximises floor space by using a block stacking method very similar to Drive in Racking.
Mobile Power Racks – Uses Conventional pallet racking on motorised rails, allowing you to assess and area at specific request. Giving you the versatility of Standard Aisle while minimising the use of square footage.
