Pallet Live Racking
Pallet live racking movement is regulated by brakes and speed controllers fitted within the roller tracks. Working on a first-in, first-out basis (FIFO), pallet live racking provides extremely high levels of storage density in a given area, and provides automatic stock rotation, with the minimum of fork lift truck movements required to handle the flow of goods.
Pallets are loaded onto dedicated lanes of inclined gravity rollers, a load is taken from the picking face, the next pallet rolls into position, with replenishment stock loaded at the opposite end of the lane.
Push Back Racking
Effectively utilising floor and cubic space, push-back racking is amongst the most space and time-efficient pallet storage systems available.
Pallets are loaded in sequence onto a carrier, this is pushed back along an inclined steel guide to utilise the full depth of the racking. Selectivity is ‘first-in, last-out’ and with each product having a dedicated lane, dynamic push-back racking is particularly useful for bulk storage and handling.
Carton Live Storage
This operates on the same principle as pallet live storage but is used for stock which needs to be hand-loaded and picked.
Inclined trays of roller tracks which are set at levels in the storage bays allow goods to roll under the force of gravity to the pick location. Order picking times are reduced and errors minimised. Carton flow racking provides an excellent, labour and space-efficient method of ‘first-in, first-out’ storage, particularly in areas where handling and using fast moving product lines are of paramount importance.
