DERBY, England, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- If the storage in your warehouse is impractical, unsuitable or out of date then it could be holding your entire operation back! Well-designed, practical, modern racking is today's cutting edge warehouse storage solution.
When you install an industrial racking system you not only create a more suitable environment for the goods you store to be housed in, but also increase the efficiency of the way your warehouse runs.
Pallet Racking Systems for Warehouses
One of the most common types of warehouse storage is the pallet racking system. An adjustable beam allows each stored pallet to be accessed easily and beams of various sizes and strengths can be installed. In addition there are various accessories that can be added to tailor shelving systems to their purpose.
Types of Pallet Racking
Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking
Allowing forklift trucks to operate in aisles up to half the width of standard pallet racking , narrow aisle racking makes excellent use of the floor space and height available. Guidance systems are fitted for the specialist trucks helping minimising accidental damage to racking and improving speed and accuracy of load handling.
Double Deep Pallet Racking
This type of racking is stacked two deep with both pallets being accessible from the same aisle. Double Deep racking is used to create a highly space-efficient storage system by reducing the number of access aisles and using the space provided to put additional racking.
Drive In Pallet Racking
If you have a large number of the same type of palletised goods to be stored then drive in storage is a good solution. Drive In storage allows pallets to be stored to considerable height and accessed with a forklift, allowing for greater capacity. Pallets are stored on rails which fork trucks utilise to retrieve goods this can help increase capacity by some 60-80% over standard aisle racking.
Today's top companies utilises the latest innovations in storage to ensure their firm stays one step ahead of the crowd. Some of the most up to date and effective modern storage solutions include:
This system reduces the need for the use of fork lift trucks as pallets are stored on rollers so each one is automatically replaced by another once it has been removed. This system allows for more pallets to be safely stored so is ideal for saving space. A first pallet in first pallet out style means that stock rotation is achieved with this system.
Carton Flow shelving is designed for goods that need to be handpicked and loaded. The system can help speed up order picking and reduce the capacity for error, which saves firms both time and money. It's also easy for warehouse managers to keep track of stock levels with carton flow storage.
In terms of saving time and space, push back storage is one of the most effective warehouse racking solutions available. Pallets are loaded onto wheeled carriers which can then be pushed along steel channels so that pallets can be stored as many as four deep. When a pallet is removed, the other pallets move forward to replace it so order picking is quick and convenient.
