Pallet Flow Rack System
The Pallet Flow Rack system is gravity-driven. Unlike Drive-In racking, the product flows to a picking position and the operator is able to access it easily. This option is ideal for quick-moving product that utilizes the first-in/first out (FIFO) inventory stock rotation. Palletized loads flow forward for picking due to heavy-duty skate wheels on sloped shelves. Warehouse space is optimized due to the high-density storage of this system, which allows for fewer aisles.
Pallet Flow Rack can also send pallets through the standard pallet rack or to Carton Flow Systems that consist of multi-level pick modules to split loads into boxes or piece parts. Installation only requires dropping the pre-installed smooth rolling metal skate wheels on rails into bays and securing with a tek screw. Pallet Flow Racks are commonly used for work-in-process, assembly lines, warehouses, and areas where dense flow storage of bulk items is necessary, especially in the manufacturing industry.
