Drive-In Racking

High-density storage system for pallets

How do drive-in racking systems work?

Drive-in racking is an ideal solution when high-density storage is required. It is very similar to block stacking, as pallets are stored on cantilevered rails. Thereby making the loading and retrieval of pallets simpler, but also prevents goods from becoming damaged.

This system enables more pallets to be stored per cubic metre than any other storage system available on the market. Stock rotation is however limited, so the system is best suited to the storage of seasonal goods or bulk goods of the same type.

Wide Aisle Racking is one of the most common pallet storage systems in the world. It is an extremely versatile and cost-effective form of racking that can be utilised without the need for specialised handling equipment or driver training. This form of racking is constructed in single or double runs, which are separated by a wide aisle allowing 100% selectivity of products.

Beam levels can be placed at any height, and the racking can be configured to take virtually any form or configuration of unit load. Racking can be re-engineered and reconfigured at any time in the future and is simple to install and move if necessary.

Adjustable Pallet Racking is in such high usage throughout the world, that a vast array of accessories and ancillary products have been developed to enable even further flexibility. In particular, these products can be used to adapt the racking to picking purposes and to handle non-palletised products through the use of decked levels or other adaptation.

System Benefits

  • Drive-in offers extremely high levels of space utilisation
  • Low capital cost compared to other dense storage solutions
  • Effective with low numbers of SKUs and high throughputs
  • Drive Through offers both LIFO and FIFO selection
  • Excellent for use in cold stores and refrigerated facilities as the system makes maximum use of space

System Features

Drive-In solutions are very versatile and can cater for a wide range of operations. However, they are particularly suitable for warehouses that have the following:

  • Reduced amount of floor space available
  • Products which do not have expiry dates
  • Operations which do not require direct access to every unit load

Product review

“We wanted to maximize the storage capacity at our Waltham Cross facility and chose SEC storage for the project which was a great success, and seen through from start to finish in a very professional manner.”
