Pallet Racking Systems

Designed to Meet Your Storage Requirements.

Pallet racking is a system devised to effectively store your products within a rack structure with the goal of maximizing the total usage of cubic square footage in a storage facility. As the primary storage constituent of most warehouses, it not only creates more space by increasing storage density in your building, but it also creates an infrastructure for organization and efficient work flow. A pallet racking system accomplishes this by analyzing which products go where based on volume and dimensions, and what the most efficient way of picking them must be.

If you are running a warehouse, you already know that maximizing your space is incredibly important because, very simply, you can hold more products and don’t have to outsource storage if you run out. If you are shopping around for a new building, an effective pallet racking system will help save you significant property costs, since you will require a smaller space.

Warehouse Pallet Racking

There are many varieties in pallet racking, and we at The Material Handler have a wide selection. All of them are constructed to store pallets in horizontal rows which can be stacked vertically to have multiple levels. We offer:

Pallet racking mediums

  • Single Selective
  • Double Deep
  • Pushback
  • Drive-In
  • Pallet Flow
  • Carton Flow
  • Very Narrow
  • Cantilever
  • Roll-Out Cantilever

Each system has its own situational advantages. Single Selective, for example, is the most commonly used because of its simplicity, ease of stock rotation and picking, good product protection, and low floor area utilization; whereas Double Deep and Pallet Flow focus more on maximizing space by restricting access to product. Some need specialized lifts to access the pallets while others focus on products with unique dimensions.

There are many factors to determine before choosing a rack layout design for the reason that different designs work better with different products. What you are storing, its weight and dimensions, along with how much volume you have, are all defining factors. We recognize that each storage area is unique and this is reflected in the way that we design individual racking systems. Prior to designing a racking layout, we would love to get our boots on the ground in your storage facility to discuss your needs before providing you with a quote.

Our engineers would then take over the design process. With the use of AutoCAD, a design tool which digitally constructs professional, safe, and dynamic pallet racking designs, engineers can design multiple custom racking systems that meet the precise needs with respect to product’s dimensions and volume. When products are placed in racking solutions, heavier items must be placed on the bottom in order to ease picking and prevent accidents.
