Drive-in rack systems are a cost-effective solution to high-density storage. This static system has rails running the depth of the rack for pallet placement. The only limitation to the depth of pallet storage is the capability to drive deep within the system. Rack depth reduces the need for aisles and drastically increases cubed space utilization. Vogler Equipment offers a full line of pallet rack systems.
Drive-in pallet systems load and retrieve from the same side, creating Last-In-First-Out (LIFO) inventory retrieval organization.
Drive-thru systems load from one side and unload from the other to create First-In-First-Out inventory retrieval. Forklifts can enter from either aisle. The rigidity of Drive-thru racking is a result from its overhead bracing or from being tied to the overhead structure. It is an excellent option for freezers, providing low cost bulk storage along with guaranteed stock rotation.
Drive-in systems are easily installed with simple support arms to hold rails and can be attached to a pallet rack or special structural designs. RACKS OF AMERICA engineering has specially designed sloped-leg frames to add extra clearance and safety for forklift movement within aisles, reducing the risk of impact damage to front posts, allowing drivers to swing loads as they exit the drive-in rack.
Drive-in / Drive-thru racks should be used for large volumes of like-product. Because of the high density storage, product is not easily accessible as pallets are stored floor to ceiling. However, dense storage can create space for up to seven times more product than floor stacking or three times more than other racks because pallets are stored back-to-back, floor-to-ceiling.
