Description

The Drive in Racking System is a high density storage solution that maximizes available space and height in the warehouse by reducing the forklift operating aisles.

It is made up of an easy-to-assemble and -reset modular structure, which makes it easy to maintain.
Compact racking can be either Drive in racking, with only one access aisle, where the last load in is the first one out, or Drive through racking, with an entrance and exit, where the first load in is the first one out.
It is the optimal and most common pallet storage system when you need to store homogeneous products with a large number of pallets of the same reference.
This compact system is appropriate where space utilisation is more important than selectivity of stored loads.


 
 

How does it work ?

The HEDA 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.

 

Advantages and features for Drive in Racking for pallets:

The main advantages of Drive in or Drive through compact pallet racking systems are their maximum compaction and optimisation of space and perfect stock control.

  • Space optimization above 80%.
  • Low maintenance and low assembly costs make this system one of the most cost-effective systems.
  • Structure compatible with other storage systems.
  • Provides maximum performance, and utilisation can be over 80% of the available space.
  • Enables clearly arranged logistics management with full control of inventories as well as traffic and service flow.
  • Designed to allow for quick reconfiguration of the structure for extension or change as needed.
  • Ideal for storing low-rotation loads of the same type.
  • Eliminates the service aisles found with a conventional pallet racking system.
  • Maximised storage floor and height.
  • Easily assembled modular structure.
  • Trucks enter the system for loading.
  • Includes various accessories to increase safety.
  • Maximisation of space
  • Products of the same type
  • Low stock rotation
 

Main applications of Drive in compact pallet racking systems:

This is the most common and widely used static compact system. Its configuration for both FIFO and LIFO management makes it a versatile type of racking solution.

It is mainly applied in the following situations:

  • Warehouses with reduced available space or with a high cost per square metre of the floor area, making it necessary to fully optimise this space.
  • Need to store homogeneous products with a large number of pallets of the same reference, and with a low turnover.
  • Warehouses for non-perishable merchandise and whose time in stock is not relevant, as with the Drive in racking system (LIFO Management).
  • Warehouses for perishable products as with the Drive through racking system (FIFO Management).
  • Warehouses where direct access to the unit loads is not required.
  • Warehouses with cold stores or freezing chambers, due to the need for compaction and space optimisation for a correct temperature distribution and cost savings.
