Drive-in pallet racking

Optimizing available space. Elimination of aisles between shelves. Admits as many references as load lanes.

Appropriate system to store homogeneous, low-rotation products with a large number of pallets per reference.

The forklift trucks run inside the drive-in storage lanes

GP rails are the most used to support the weight of the goods on drive-in racks

261f4da2-0b2c-d4d7-67bc-9da66104e54a

C brackets in the high-density systems indirectly support the weight of the goods

fbcc40f1-d70c-53bb-a7f5-8f74138608fd

These brackets have two functions: support the weight of the goods and act as part of the support rail

The pallet centralizer is a key element in drive-in shelving: it makes it easier for forklifts to handle the goods

The VGPC guide rail is very common in warehouses where forklifts operate in drive-in racks

f299c07f-034d-5987-50b8-254a2dc235a2

Upright footplates of the racks have side protectors to keep forklifts from damaging the rack structure

c97efd1a-a546-2b87-7dc8-67ef47582969

In drive-in pallet racks, upright reinforcements are added to the frames to prevent the forklifts from damaging the structure

3476fd83-2e0c-8d58-2683-e79b64efaabc

In extreme cases, double reinforcements can be added to the drive-in frames to prevent damage to the rack

At the entrance to the compact warehouse, there should be a signaling plate indicating the technical data of the installation

The drive-in system uses the maximum capacity of the warehouse, a key factor in cold-storage

In order to optimize the operation of a warehouse, drive-in racks tend to be combined with other storage systems

77f1aa92-14f8-1903-8171-505162f365c4

Drive-in racks can also comprise part of the warehouse structure and be turned into clad-rack installations

a93ccb50-08f2-86d8-9259-362d34c4787e

The storage channels of the drive-in racks can also be set up outdoors

Although GP brackets are the most common, some pallets require an additional C support to protect the load

922e55af-88e8-bf41-0172-f0176901a545

These pallet centralizer are used to guide the handling equipment in the loading and unloading of goods

6cbbae1c-bf4c-f0aa-c8e2-7ddc97283c50

The C brackets are specifically for installations where a long goods need storing

In drive-in warehouses, the use of guide rails is essential to ensure operator safety

73a9a9ed-9ba2-567d-1932-8c36a8eeb63a

Yellow safety signs throughout the warehouse serve as guides for operators

This system is base on the storage by accumulation principle, which enables the highest use of available space in terms of both area and height.

Drive-in racking is designed for the storage of homogenous products. It accommodates a large number of pallets for each SKU.

Advantages

  • Maximum profitability of the available space (up to 85%).
  • Removal of aisles between the ranking.
  • Rigorous control of entries and exits.
  • It allows as many SKU as loading lanes.

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.
