3 Things You Might Not Know About Selective Pallet Rack

You probably use a selective pallet rack every day in your Chicago warehouse, but you might not know much about them. The DAK Equipment team works with these racks every day, and we can understand why people love them. Check out these facts about your selective pallet rack:

  • They are inexpensive. The relatively simple system can be massed produced, making it an affordable choice for a warehouse on a budget. Most warehouses are able to get the selective pallet racks that they need without stretching their budget–and DAK Equipment can help them find ways to save or maximize on space, too.
  • They are versatile. Selective pallet racks can be easily modified to fit a variety of pallet and carton sizes so you get a customized fit for your product line.
  • They are the most popular rack used in warehouses. They beat out carton flow, gravity flow, and other racks to be the most commonly used in the American warehouse. You’ll find them in almost every warehouse you visit. That’s due in part because of their affordability and versatility in the warehouse environment.

How to Keep Your Selective Pallet Rack Organized

A selective pallet rack is meant to help keep your warehouse storage organized. If you don’t stay on top of the organization, though, it won’t be too long before chaos reigns. DAK Equipment has been selling and manufacturing selective pallet rack for over 20 years, and we can offer a few suggestions about how to keep your warehouse racks organized:

  • Stay up-to-date on inventory. Perform counts at least annually and account for everything on your racks. If it’s not in your inventory or equipment that you need, it shouldn’t be on your selective pallet rack. Have teams organize as they count, too. That makes inventory easier and creates a nicer, neater work environment afterwards.
  • Make inventory counts an opportunity for cleaning up. Debris like parts of cardboard boxes, tie downs, plastic wrap and more tends to accumulate on pallet racks. As your team performs an inventory count, have them clean up any trash that they see along the way.
  • Wipe down your pallet racks. You may think it’s unnecessary to clean your selective pallet rack, but it really can make a difference. A cleaner environment is more efficient, and you won’t lose needed inventory in a cloud of dust. Most shelves can be wiped down with soap and water.

These three steps should leave your selective pallet rack looking better than ever. It’s also a great way to make note of any damage you may find and have your selective pallet rack repaired by a qualified technician at DAK Equipment.
