Drive In Pallet Rack

Drive-In/Drive-Through pallet racking is a unique storage solution. Loads are densely stored in lanes several positions deep, and lift equipment actually enters the industrial pallet racks structure in order to store and retrieve them. Drive-In/Drive-Through rack is ideally suited to operations where a large quantity of relatively few products is stored.

Drive-In/Drive-Through rack can be designed specifically for your needs in a multitude of heights and depths and with a wide variety of components and accessories. A Drive-In pallet storage racks contains a common entry and exit point for each storage bay. Drive-Through features access to a storage bay from either the front or back of a bay.

Is Drive-In or Drive-Through Rack the right solution for your problem?

If you:

  • Have uniformly sized pallets
  • Store seasonal items that move quickly or
  • Have a high volume of relatively few products (SKUs)
  • Want the highest density storage available

Then a Drive-In or Drive-Through system could be right for you.

Because Drive-In/Drive-Through Rack is a First-in, Last-out system, it’s not the right solution for those who need good stock rotation unless lot rotation is an option.  To solve this problem with a First-in, First-out system, visit our Pallet Flow Rack page to learn about high density storage that addresses stock rotation.

All DAK Equipment & Engineering rack solutions exceed all Rack Manufacturers Institute and ANSI standards, however because the lift trucks enter the rack structure,  Drive-In/Drive-Through systems are subject to more damage.  Well trained lift truck drivers and frequent safety inspections are an important part of owning this high density storage system.
