Pallet Flow Racks
Pallet flow racks optimize warehouse storage by facilitating smooth pallet movement through the racking system on inclined rollers. This dynamic solution enhances efficiency, ensures FIFO inventory management, and maximizes space utilization for a streamlined and organized warehouse operation.
What Are Pallet Flow Racks?
Pallet flow racks are a fifo warehouse racking system. It is loaded in on one side by the forklift and unloaded on the other side by a forklift. Flow racks are a high density racking system that allow you to increase your storage capacity by totally cubing out your storage space and eliminating the need for as many forklift aisles as selective pallet rack.
When purchasing pallet flow racks, it is very important to know the specifications of the pallet that you will be flowing through the system. Such specifications include, dimensions, weight, and they type of pallet. The type of pallet that is used, is a critical piece of information to make sure you get the correct conveyance system inside of the racking.
Pallet flow rack is all gravity powered making maintenance on the system a non issue. The lanes are pitched higher in the back and slope toward the front. A nice thing about pallet flow rack systems can be made as deep as you need them to go.
Basically all pallet flow rack systems are custom designed based on the specifications of the application, as every situation varies based on the building/specs of pallet.
Pallet Flow rack can be made out of structural pallet rack or roll formed pallet rack.
What Components Make Up Pallet Flow Rack?
Pallet flow rack is combines a type of conveyor with selective pallet rack to make a high density and dynamic pallet storage option.
Pallet Rack Uprights – are what hold the system together vertically.
Pallet Rack Beams – these are what the conveyance system rest upon and support the pallet loads. As you go through the system each sequential beam will be mounted a little bit lower than the previous to give the pallet lane its pitch.
Rollers – There are different types of rollers depending on what type of pallet you have. The rollers are what the pallet sits on and rolls the pallet from back to front.
