DRIVE IN RACKS Drive In Racks allow vehicles to enter the storage area for pallet placement in a back-to-front arrangement, and require the operator to back-out of the rack after pallet placement. Drive In Racks are ideally suited for “FIRST-IN / LAST-OUT” inventory management. Drive In systems can also be designed as "double entry systems. drive-in and drive-thru racks reduce the need for conventional aisle space and maximize warehouse utilization. MECO OMAHA drive-in/drive-thru racks are custom designed to fit your specific storage application. Upright frames, pallet support beams and cross ties are fabricated from structural channel providing optimum strength and durability. lective pallet rack. Our unique design of self cente-ring load rail helps the operator “guide” the pallet into position. Drive-in pallet rack is made up of rows of racks which from inner loading lanes with guide rails. The forklift trucks drive along the inner lanes with their load raised above the level on which it is to be deposited. density than pushback or drive-in racks. It’s the most common pallet storage racking type in the world. Ideal for faster moving product in most warehouse applications. Drive-In racks: last-n-first-out picking with excellent storage density, lower selectivity Drive-in racks are “last-in, first-out” systems with reducedFile Size: 2MB.

Drive-through racks are handled according to the «FIFO» principle (first in, first out). Pallets are loaded on a rack on one side and unloaded from the other. In the first case, pallet, which was installed first, will be shipped last. This method is used to store the same type of product with a long shelf life. In the second case, pallet. Drive-in and drive-through rack is designed for last-in, first-out (LIFO – drive-in) or first-in, first-out (FIFO – drive-through) inventory management. Pallets are stored on support rails that are attached to uprights and are accessed by a lift truck that drives in to the system with the load elevated to the height of the rail and placed. Drive-In rack operators must be very careful not to damage the pallet racking. Because pallets are stored so densely and a driver must enter the pallet racking system with only a small clearance on either side, a Drive-In rack system must be checked for damage frequently. The efficient, safe design and use of pallet racking storage systems, pallets and materials handling equipment depends on a number of factors. This guide is intended to give an indication of best practice and advice to anyone involved in the planning of a new warehouse or storage facility. It is of equal value to the warehouse manager.

DRIVE-IN RACK & DRIVE- THRU RACK SYSTEMS from UNARCO. Drive-In Rack and Drive-Thru 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. Drive-In Pallet Racks boast the greatest storage density of any of our engineered pallet rack systems. By eliminating aisles, drive-in pallet rack systems are able to maximize warehouse storage space. In fact, a drive-in rack system can increase your pallet . Thin-walled cold-formed steel members are used worldwide in industrial systems for the storage of goods and materials, such as drive-in, drive-through and selective pallet racks. iRacking drive-in rack is designed for the storage of homogenous products. It accommodates a large number of pallets for each SKU. The most high density system provides the maximum space efficiency and high volume storage of block stacking, with easy access to pallets.
