  Drive-In and Drive-Through Pallet Racking

Drive-In Racking
When block stacking is not an option this type of racking is ideal for filling large areas of a warehouse with multi deep, multi wide and multi high blocks of pallets.

Drive in is usually specified for first in-last out storage situations. Perishable, crushable, unwieldy or awkward shaped goods that cannot be self stacked are likely candidates for this specialist solution. Cold stores often specify this type of racking as it is an ideal method when storing predictable batch movements of palletised loads.

The system provides blocks os static storage where pallets are stored two or more deep. Having driven in, the truck then has to reverse out. It offers restricted selectivity of individual pallets but provides effective high density storage with good use of the 'cube'. The continuous block's of racking (no aisles) allows for truck access directly into the system placing goods next in line one behind the other on cantilevered rails each side of the lane


Drive-Through Racking
This is the same sort of principle but the system allows access from either side and the truck drives through the block from one aisle to another. Guide rails, as illustrated in the picture above, can be supplied to enable the truck safer access in/out of the aisles.

Both Drive In and Drive Through racking can be as much as 8 metres high dependent on the type of truck. We recommend an average of 8 to 10 pallets deep in order to maintain an efficient turnaround of pallet movement.
