CE/RMI Approved Robust Metal Drive-in Storage Racking
Drive-in or drive-through racking is a type of storage that improves warehouse area utilization at the expense of instant accessibility. These racks have a maximum depth of twelve pallets and a maximum height of six to seven pallets, but selectivity decreases as systems get more intricate.
Drive-in racking is best used in warehouses that handle large amounts of inventory, while in certain circumstances, only a portion of a warehouse is converted to this sort of storage for the best results. You can learn more about the benefits and downsides of drive-in pallet racking in the paragraphs that follow, as well as if this type of racking is a good fit for your storage needs.

Basic Characteristics of Drive-in Racking System
Instead of beams, a drive-in racking system uses rails to support each row of pallets. It is nicknamed a "drive-in" rack because a forklift operator can drive into the racking system and place the first pallet at the end of a lane. Then, he can set a second pallet directly behind the first one, and so forth. Pallet removal follows a similar procedure, with the notable distinction that the operator must first move any pallets in front of a pallet that needs to be removed from the back of the row.
As a result, the system is set up using FILO (First-In-Last-Out) access, which may not be ideal for some businesses or warehouses where order picking is done from pallets. Drive-in racking, on the other hand, can save a lot of room and is perfect for storing numerous pallets per SKU (stock-keeping unit) for the same product.
Drive-in Racking: Uses and Advantages
Similar to block stacking, drive-in racking is a very high-density storage solution that may be constructed higher and is more likely to maintain the integrity of the stock. Its benefits and usage include:
♦ Increased Storage Capacity
One of the densest storage methods is drive-in pallet racking. No other type of storage can equal its capacity, which is up to 12 pallets deep and 7 pallets high. The latter also frees up more floor space because fewer aisles are required to run such a system.
♦ FIFO Access is Possible
For warehouses that deal with goods with a short shelf life, a typical drive-in racking system with one or two entries allows accessibility on a FILO basis. However, drive-through racking is a practical choice for businesses that handle perishable material since, when set up correctly, it enables FIFO inventory control.
♦ Ideal for Temperature-controlled Storage Spaces
Because maintaining temperature control in a warehouse may be highly expensive, as the warehouse manager, you should make the most of every square inch of space. Drive-in racks are the best storage option currently available for helping you accomplish that.
In terms of cost per pallet, a drive-in racking system is among the cheapest storage options. When space is limited, it can assist warehouse managers to save money and ensure that expensive portions of the warehouse, like those that offer refrigeration, are utilized to their fullest potential.
All things considered, drive-in pallet racks are perfect for warehouses that deal with a lot of pallets per SKU but can't use block stacking due to concerns about product quality. They allow the deposit of huge loads and are also cost-effective when used in conjunction with cold or frozen storage.
