Chinese Manufactured Durable Drive in Pallet Rack With Store Homogeneous Products
A drive-in pallet rack, also known as a drive-through rack, is a type of storage system used in warehouses and distribution centers to store and organize palletized goods. It is designed to maximize storage capacity by allowing forklifts to enter the rack structure and retrieve or deposit pallets from within the system.
Here are some key features and characteristics of drive-in pallet racks:
1. Structure: Drive-in racks consist of upright frames and horizontal load beams. The frames provide vertical support, while the beams hold the pallets in place. The rack system is typically constructed from robust steel to ensure strength and durability.
2. Drive-in Configuration: Unlike selective pallet racks where each pallet has its own dedicated aisle, drive-in racks eliminate the need for individual aisles by creating a continuous block of storage. The racks are arranged in multiple rows with no aisles in between, allowing forklifts to drive directly into the rack system.
3. LIFO System: Drive-in racks typically operate on a Last-In, First-Out (LIFO) basis. This means that the last pallet stored in a lane is the first one that can be accessed for retrieval. It is suitable for goods that have a low turnover rate or where the order of retrieval is not critical.
4. Pallet Placement: Pallets are placed on horizontal load beams within the rack system. Since there are no individual aisles, the pallets are stored back-to-back in each lane. This configuration maximizes storage density but reduces selectivity since access is limited to the entry point of each lane.
5. Drive-In Lanes: Each row of drive-in racks consists of multiple lanes where pallets can be stored. The number of lanes depends on the width and depth of the pallets being stored and the size of the forklifts used. Each lane has a set of guide rails on the floor to ensure proper alignment of the forklift while driving into the rack system.
6. Load and Unload: Forklift operators drive into the rack lanes, placing pallets onto the load beams using either a single or double-deep configuration. When retrieving pallets, they drive into the lane, position the forklift beneath the desired pallet, and lift it out. This requires careful maneuvering to avoid collisions with other pallets within the lane.
7. Storage Density: Drive-in pallet racks are known for their high storage density since they minimize the amount of space dedicated to aisles. They are ideal for storing large quantities of homogeneous products or goods with long shelf life, where space utilization is a priority over quick and frequent access.
