Easily installed, cost effective and versatile, adjustable beam racking is the most widely used of pallet storage systems and allows 100% direct access to each pallet stored systems and allows 100% direct access to each pallet stored.

With adjustable beams, racking can be re- configured to accommodate changes in the type of goods.

A variant on standard adjustable beam racking. Double-deep pallet racking, as the name implies, allows pallets to be stored two deep but still accessible from the same aisle.

By reducing the number of access aisles and using the space saved to accommodate additional racking, a double-deep configuration provides a highly space- efficient storage system.

Although the speed of access to all the pallet positions is restricted with an efficient stock management system this can easily be compensated for to take advantage of the benefits of more storage space.

Push-back racking is amongst the most space and time efficient pallet storage system available.

Pallets are loaded in sequence onto wheeled carts or rollers and are pushed back along inclined beds. Pallets can be stored up to 10 deep and when a load is retrieved the remaining pallet roll forward into position at the picking face. Selectivity is "First in, last out" and with each product having a dedicated lane dynamic push back racking is particularly useful in marshalling area and for bulk storage and handling.

  • Push-back racking allows pallets of varying types and sizes to be stored together, two, three or even four deep, with quick and easy access.
  • Pallets are loaded in sequence onto wheeled carriers or cradles of varying heights, which are 'pushed-back' on inclined steel channels to utilise the full depth of the racking. As pallets are retrieved, those remaining roll forward into position at the picking face.
  • This live storage system saves time, because trucks do not have to enter the racking for storage and retrieval, and also space as floor area for only one loading or picking face is required.
  • Push-back is suitable for all types of pallet load, including in some cases inferior quality pallets, and is particularly suited to operations where space utilisation is paramount - in cold stores, for example.

Pallet Racking can be easily configured for space-saving mobile storage. With the racking mounted on mobile chassis which move along guide tracks set onto the floor, the floor space for only one moving operating aisle is required to access all pallet locations.

This space-saving design makes mobile pallet racking particularly suited to cold stores, as the maximum amount of space can be utilised for storage.

Operation is simple with chassis moving in a cascade sequence until the selected aisle is opened, all from a single push of a button.

The system application is powered by efficient, industry standard, electric motors for maximum reliability.

By allowing fork lift trucks to operate in aisles of up to half the width required in conventional adjustable beam pallet racking, narrow aisle racking makes excellent use of floor space and maximizes the height at which goods can be stacked. Using specialised lift trucks in either "man-down" or "man-up" variants, narrow aisle racking is precision designed for safe, efficient load handling within the tight confines of these space-efficient aisles.

Fitted with guidance rails or wires at floor level, trucks are precisely guided into position, thereby improving safety, whilst minimising the incidence of accidental damage to racking and improving the speed and accuracy of loading handling.
