Cantilever rack is typically used for storage of oversized, bulky or long products like carpet, tubing, plywood, and metal products. Cantilever racking uses structural arms secured to a beam at one end only. Products are stored perpendicular to the arms, allowing lift trucks free access from the face of the structure.
Flow rack solutions are skate wheel gravity-powered rack equipment perfect for applications with many different SKUs. This variety of racking uses ramped shelving with a loading lane on the high side access and a pick up aisle on the downhill end, allowing a FIFO product inventory cycle. Sloped shelves also improve visibility, enabling greater fulfillment precision. Carton flow equipment is well suited for piece or split case picking.
Drive In Rack
Drive-in racking is a high density industrial racking layout with overhead cross beams that drives efficiencies in warehouse space and employee productivity. Pallets are upheld by tracks anchored to the uprights. Forklifts are able to easily drive in and out of each pallet bay column. Several different types of businesses use drive-in racking, particularly those with large stocks of identical items.
Some examples of uses for drive-in pallet racking are grocery, food service, import/export, food manufacturing, chemicals and bulk product handling.
Because these types of racks are loaded from the face, management of goods is in a “first-in/last-out” order.
Pallet Flow Rack
Pallet flow racking is a high density option that uses a deep lane storage rack design and a first in/first out pallet handling protocol. Pallet flow rack setups are typically put into use for applications with an extensive inventory of pallets of uniform products.
Pallets are filled from an aisle on the backside and picked up from a lane in the front. As units from the face are unloaded, the pallets behind travel down a slope along skate wheels or belts. This type of racking is often put to use in the beverage industry, or other operations that have heavy products with “first in/first out” requirements.
Push Back Rack
Push back rack setups are high density configurations that make efficient use of warehouse space, supporting up to 3,000 lbs. in 2-6' deep channels. All pallets are loaded and unloaded from the front of the equipment, allowing for very dense storage within your warehouse.
Push back racks are a “last in/first out” type of arrangement. As new goods are filled in the front, the products in back of them move up a slope via carts on steel tracks. The reverse occurs as goods are unloaded.
Selective racking is the most broadly enlisted type of storage today. These racks are made up of load beams fastened to uprights using bolts or teardrop connectors. Selective rack is formed from either structural or roll formed steel, with the latter generally being not as costly and more adaptable.
Standard selective rack implementations are usually configured as “single deep”, which means they have one length of bays per row. Double deep racking options have rows the same height, but two times as wide, meaning they can store two pallets per bay. Double deep configurations are loaded from the front, meaning they are a “first in/last out” implementation.
You can also select different varieties of pallet rack decking and accessories based on your use case and load capacity. Pick from common wire decking, solid steel or perforated steel depending on your individual use.
In addition to pallet racking, Assciated offers a complete range of boltless shelving in heavy, medium and light duty formats. This type of industrial shelving is suitable for shop or light industrial use, shipping operations, paper records, parts and dozens of other purposes that require lighter weight support.
Customers can order decks as traditional particle board, solid metal or wire decking. No nuts, bolts or additional small parts are required for setting up this product, so installation is a simple project. Add accessories such as side panels, work tables, post caps, tie plates or footplates.
