An Insight into Different Types of Pallet Racking Structures

Storing your products in a safe environment and handling them in warehouses represent two demanding tasks for every business. If your warehouse is still operating with old-school forklifts and does not apply any modern strategies, it is time for a big change. Pallet racking products manufactured by Dexion are a perfect mixture of modern design and sturdy structure. They have a long tradition that guarantees the best warehouse experience in the market. What they offer are several types of pallet racking, so that they suit different warehouses and fit into different warehouse sizes and shapes.

Satellite storage

Having forklifts around a warehouse can be practical for some spaces, but modern technological innovations are trying to cover those spaces or parts of a warehouse where forklifts have limited access. This is what Dexion’s engineers had in mind when they devised the satellite storage pallet structure. This method of storing your products on warehouse shelves relies on the smart cart satellite unit. It can retrieve products from deep, inaccessible shelves, which reduces the warehouse expenses.

Selective mobile racking

The base of this racking structure are specially designed floors. They need to be equipped with special rails, so that warehouse workers can shift the whole bank of mobile racks by moving only one aisle. These mobile bases have electronic control, so that they can be easily moved when it is necessary to reach a farther aisle. This is a great option when you need to put your pallets as close as possible to one another, due to a lack of warehouse space.

Easy reach through narrow aisles

When a warehouse manager wants to reach an optimal use of the vertical and horizontal potential of a warehouse, they install narrow aisle racking. These structures enable warehouse workers to access the pallets either by forklifts or without them. There is just enough aisle space between every rack to accommodate a special forklift. Here both the racks and the aisles are narrow, which makes this structure a suitable choice for mail warehouses and other similar spaces for storing smaller packages.

Drive-in structure

Contrary to narrow aisles, the drive-in structure represents the best of Dexion NZ’s pallet racking options when it comes to large items. Businesses that need to deal with bulky, voluminous products and packages can make great use of the drive-in structure, since it ensures that huge pallets are stored in a fast and safe way. Also, there is not repositioning or realigning within this structure. Having this pallet type in your warehouse also means that you need more powerful forklifts.

Push-back storage

Perfect for companies that have to accommodate bigger packages in their warehouses, push-back racks enables warehouse managers to densely store loads of items. Regular forklifts can access them in a fast way. Also, thanks to the last-in-first-out arrangement, the pick spot is always filled with pallets, which increases the warehouse efficiency and speeds up the work process.

Flow-through racking

Based on the first-in-first-out arrangement, the flow-through racking plan ensures that pallets are quickly put through the racks, as well as automatic stock rotation. This storage strategy can be applied in the products reception field or in staging areas. Here pallets are left on one side and picked up on the other – a real flow-through approach.
