Push-Back Drive-In Rack
A LIFO (Last In First Out) accumulative storage system where same-SKU pallets can be stored multiple positions deep behind each other in a particular bay. Push-back is ideal for storing medium-turnover products, with at least two or more pallets per SKU that are accessed from (only) the same aisle. In operation, pallets are placed on a set of trolleys that are pushed along rolling rails. These rails are built on a slight incline, pitched towards the front, so that the pallets at the back move forward when the pallet closest to the aisle is removed. Conveyor based push back can also be provided in a similar manner.
Saves space by reducing the number of aisles.
High storage density; typically positioned against walls.
Loading and unloading carried out in a central aisle.
Drive-in pallet racking
Drive-in racking is ideal for like products with low levels of turnover and a high number of pallets per article type. This system offers high utilization of cubic available space in terms of both area and height. Two operational styles are used: the drive-in, with only one access aisle, and the drive-through, with access to loads from both sides of the rack.
Maximum use of available space (85%).
Elimination of aisles between shelves.
Rigorous entrance and exit control.
