The Pallet Flow Rack system is driven by gravity. It is perfect for fast-moving product with first-in/first out (FIFO) stock rotation. Heavy-duty skate wheels on sloped shelves allow palletized loads to flow forward for picking. The high-density storage utilizes space with fewer aisles. Pallet Flow racks can send pallets through standard pallet rack or to Carton Flow Systems consisting of multi-level picking modules to split loads into boxes or piece parts. Warehouse floor space utilization can be maximized with fewer aisles by storing pallets back to back. Unlike in static systems such as Drive-In racking, product flows back to a picking position and is easily accessible to the operator.
Pallet Flow Rackes provide smooth rolling metal skate wheels on sturdy rails come pre-assembled so that installation only requires dropping them into bays and securing with a tek screw.
There is no limit to the size of a project or storage density. Deep Lane Pallet Flow Racks can be designed to store as many as twenty pallets deep with the use of electro-mechanical or pneumatic speed-braking systems. Simple braking systems can be placed throughout flow lanes to control pallet flow speed.
In-line pallet flow rack wheels come on 2″, 3″ or 4″ centers and staggered wheels are available for heavier loads on 1-1/2″ or 2″ centers. Flow lanes are easily created by dropping the track into the bay which fits securely in the step of the beam and a nylon stop at the end keeps the pallet in the bay. Pallets are loaded from one side of the racking and selected from the other. As each load is removed, the load behind moves forward automatically to the picking position. This system is ideal for rotating perishables or date-sensitive inventory. RACKS OF AMERICA can accommodate all of your industrial pallet flow rack needs.
