Drive-in Pallet Racking
Drive-in pallet racking offers the best solution when block stacking is not an option. Drive-in pallet racking is also great for storing those items not strong enough to be stacked.
Pallets are stacked by the first-in, last-out (FILO) principle on supports mounted on both sides of the drive-in channels. This means that individual pallets cannot be accessed directly, but one by one from the front of the rack. Drive-in pallet racking is designed for storing large quantities of the same or similar product/pallet, which increases the storage space utilisation compared to conventional pallet racking.
Drive-in pallet racking is a good solution if storage capacity is a prime requirement of your warehouse. Each pallet is supported so damage from crushing is eliminated.
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.
