Why Choose Pallet Racking Brisbane

May 30

Do you need more storage space in your warehouse because of an increase in inventory? Pallet Racking Brisbane is a great option if you are looking to expand your warehouse storage. These systems can maximize warehouse storage, increasing storage capacity and boosting your productivity.

It is essential to make sure that the racking is specifically designed to work with your warehouse and pallets set up. Racking that doesn't meet your requirements could result in costly mistakes.

Selective Racking

Pallet racking is an essential part of every warehouse to ensure that their stock is kept efficiently and safely. Pallet racks are an efficient and cost-effective solution that is utilized in almost every factory, warehouse and distribution centre in Australia.

The most popular pallet racking type is selective pallet racking, that allows immediate access to every load. It's ideal for warehouses that carry an extensive range of products or SKUs. This system is less expensive and is able to be modified to accommodate different types loads.

Racks are typically built in single runs. They can be back-to-back or stand alone. All pallet locations are aisle facing to provide maximum visibility. This allows a counterbalanced forklift to maneuver and reach the product quickly. This type rack is also suitable for warehouses that have a "first in, first-out" (FIFO) policy. Double deep racking is similar to selective racking, however it is constructed with a greater number of rows of racking and requires a specialist reach truck to access the pallets in the rear.

Double Deep Racking

Double Deep Racking is an ideal solution for warehouses that have high quantities of single SKUs that require rapid dispatch. This storage system can hold up to four pallets and is accessible by special reach forklift trucks equipped with dual pantographs or sliding forks.

The use of backstops, meshes and frame protectors is a complementary element that can help ensure an extremely high level of safety for double-deep installations. They are placed in front of each upright to stop the accidental displacement of the loads. AR Racking offers galvanised frames for double-deep systems, which provide better resistance to corrosion and durability compared to painted ones.

This warehouse shelving system is an intermediate solution between Selective Racking (a high-density compact storage system) and a high-density compact system. It is able to increase capacity by up to 30 percent while maintaining access to 50 percent of the time and a moderate rotation. It is also a less expensive alternative to Drive-In Racking. This rack system can be used to store large items like machinery or production. It can also accommodate any type of load.

Push Back Racking

Push back racks are an excellent way to improve warehouse efficiency. This LIFO (last in, first out) rack system can provide shelves with high density by nesting pallets in incline rails. This reduces the interaction between the fork truck and rack system.

Instead each pallet is moved back into the lane from the pallet that is in front of it. This allows pickers to easily access the pallet that is in front of them and reduces damage to racks because there is less contact between the equipment and the row that is deeper.

Like other live rack systems, require regular maintenance in order to function efficiently. Modifications should only be performed by someone who has the right level of expertise and knowledge for example, an engineer or manager. If any of the rackings are damaged, it must be reported to the management immediately. This will allow the correct precautions to be taken and the issue to be rectified as quickly as possible.

Drive-In Racking

Drive-in Racking is a pallet storage solution with high density that maximises storage space by reducing the number of aisles required for trucks. It is ideal for homogeneous goods and operates on the First In Last Out (FILO) principle.

The system is supported by steel rails on each lane. Forklifts are able to enter the lane to transport or load goods, with newer stock being stacked on top of older goods. The FILO system allows you to cut down on the cost of holding inventory by maximizing the use of warehouse space, and also reducing handling times.

Drive-in racking can also be purchased with upright protectors that prevent damage to the structure and increase stability. They can be positioned on the ends or rear of the racking rows. These also serve to protect the racking system from impacts by forklifts, reducing repair and maintenance costs. This type of rack can be used in cold conditions, such as a freezer, providing that the pallets being stored are not damaged by the temperature.
