Drive-in pallet racking

Item No.: HD009
Optimizing available space. Elimination of aisles between shelves. Admits as many references as load lanes.

Appropriate system to store homogeneous, low-rotation products with a large number of pallets per reference.
Description

Drive in Pallet Rack System

 

This system is base on the storage by accumulation principle, which enables the highest use of available space in terms of both area and height.

Drive-in racking is designed for the storage of homogenous products. It accommodates a large number of pallets for each SKU.


Advantages

  • Maximum profitability of the available space (up to 85%).
  • Removal of aisles between the ranking.
  • Rigorous control of entries and exits.
  • It allows as many SKU as loading lanes.

Two management systems are available: the drive-in system, with only one access aisle, and the drive-through system, with access to the load from both sides of the rack.

The system is frequently used in cold stores (refrigeration and freezing) which require maximum use of space for the storage of products in a controlled temperature.

This system is base on the storage by accumulation principle, which enables the highest use of available space in terms of both area and height.

 

How does it work?

Drive in Racking system - AR Drive In

The AR Drive In compact racking system is the optimum solution for the storage of homogenous products with a high number of unit loads per reference.

It is a high-density pallet storage system designed to maximise the cubic space available by minimising the operating aisles needed for trucks.

Compact pallet racking systems enable excellent stock control in the warehouse, as each lane of the structure is exclusively for a product reference.

In this compact pallet racking system, parallel aisles are generated inside the structure, where the forklifts circulate to load or unload the unit loads. The forklift handles the load at a height higher than the level at which it will be deposited and deposits it on the load support rails, which are located on both sides of each level.

 


 

There are two types of storage for the compact system, with the Drive in type being the most common:

Drive in pallet racking (LIFO - Last in, First out)

This is the most common compact racking system and only needs a single access aisle for the forklift. It uses the LIFO method, so the last load in is the first one out. Drive in compact racking is indicated for warehouses with low material turnover.
 

Drive through pallet racking (FIFO – First in, First out)

This solution requires two accesses, one on each side of the racking. It uses the FIFO method, as the first load in is the first one out. Because it allows access from both the front and rear sides, drive through compact racking is a suitable system for high turnover products.

  

AR Drive In Racking system structure:

The Drive in storage system is made up of sets of frames and vertical uprights joined together to form inner lanes.

Each lane is equipped with support rails on both sides, laid out at different levels, on which pallets are placed. For loading and unloading operations, the forklift truck enters the lanes with the unit load lifted above the rail where it will be placed.

This compact storage system allows as many SKUs as loading lanes. Depth and height are dependent on the number of pallets to be stored.

Drive in Racking Components

The main components and accessories of Drive in compact pallet racking systems are:
 

Upper longitudinal beam

The upper longitudinal beam joins the frames in the upper area crosswise, to secure the structure by creating gantries. The beams must be placed in all the compact racking aisles.

Horizontal brace

The horizontal brace is a metal component that reinforces the compact structure and is located at the top.

Frame

The frame is one of the basic elements of Drive in compact racking. These frames consist of 2 uprights, their corresponding diagonals, baseplates and fixing elements.

Forklift guide rail

This is a steel rail at floor level that runs along the whole aisle. Its objective is to guide the forklift when it enters the structure and protect it against possible impacts. It helps to separate the forklift from the Drive in compact racking.

Frame and upright protection

The frame and upright protectors protect the installation from possible damage due to impacts by the forklift.

Welded baseplate

The welded baseplate is an especially designed component for frames with the highest load and height.

Upright

The upright is the main element of the frame and is galvanised. The customer has available to them a wide variety of upright sections and lengths to adapt to their warehouse needs.

Pallet guidance

It is situated at the front of the pallet beam or pallet support rail and helps operators when depositing the unit loads. It also protects the structure against potential impacts.

Pallet beam or support rail

These are the horizontal profiles on which the pallets on each level of the Drive in racking system are supported. They are metal and are perpendicularly secured to the upright by means of the brackets.

Bracket

Brackets are the metal components that support the support rails or pallet beams on each level, and therefore indirectly support the pallets. This component is secured to the upright.

Pallet backstop

Pallet backstops are preventive safety backstops and their main function is to prevent the pallet from falling at the back of the aisle due to any inappropriate manoeuvre.
