What is Double Deep Pallet Rack?

Double deep pallet rack stores pallets 2 deep in the racking system. Pallets need to be accessed with a reach style forklift to be able load and unload the pallet in the 2nd position. Double deep pallet rack allows you to increase your storage density by having fewer aisles than selective pallet rack. 

The only downside of Double Deep Rack Versus standard selective racking is that not every pallet will be immediately accessible to the forklift. The operator may have to move one pallet before getting to the 2nd position. Double deep pallet rack can be made of roll formed pallet rack or structural pallet rack.
