Add Efficiency and Safety with Pallet Flow Racks

When timely use of product and expiration dates matter, the concept of “first-in, first-out” takes on the highest level of priority for material handling. Being able to quickly and efficiently stock and organize product properly, in order to avoid spoilage and ruin, is imperative to cost-effective warehouse management. Imagine being able to easily and efficiently move large, heavy pallets much like you move individual cartons along a conveyor belt. The addition of pallet flow racks to your warehouse allows you to do that. pallet flow racks

Pallet flow racks seamlessly move pallets and products along inclined rollers, allowing easy transport from input to pick face. This process also protects warehouse employees, creates a more efficient use of time and space and reduces product handling. A comprehensively custom-designed pallet flow rack is ideal for those seeking material handling system solutions in freezer warehouses and food distribution centers. Handling a high-volume of consumer goods is also made more efficient while working in high-traffic areas and dispatching large numbers of pallets. We also carry and distribute carton flow racks for those needing to efficiently handle loose cartons and split cases.

We will properly assess your needs, identify any product management issues and design and build a customized pallet flow rack system that is guaranteed to work for you and your employees.

With this system, pallets are stored in lanes and rest on a cart-on-rails. It works from a single aisle so that pallets are stored by pushing back the previously places pallets with the new pallet. When the front pallet is taken away, gravity works to move the next pallet down into the ready position. Who does this work for? If you want to avoid lift trucks entering the rack while also being able to access each pick face, this is for you. You should have pallets of the same size for this to work efficiently.

The Cantilever Rack System. This solution offers load bearing arms connected to one large column in the center. This leaves the picking face totally open, unlike other systems. This rack system is ideal for warehouses that carry furniture, appliances, flooring, lumber, tubing, textiles, and the like.
