Drive In Racking
Drive- In rack systems are ideal when you have seasonal items that move quickly out of your inventory, or a large number of similar items that can be stored in a single pallet position and accessed last in, first out. A Drive-In system can increase efficiency and cost savings. Capacity usage is typically lower than other systems by about 60%-70%.
This system consists of a series of tunnels with rails on either side at multiple levels which supports the pallet. Since Drive-In systems are typically subject to more abuse, rack integrity and strength is essential.
Drive-In systems efficiently store large quantities of similar loads by allowing the forklift driver to enter the rack system and place the load on structural rails. The lift truck can enter the rack from one side to pick up or pull out pallets because the pallets can slide backwards on a continuous rail. While forklifts can drive into the rack to access pallets 2 or more deep, the size of your facility may limit the depth of storage for a bay.
