Warehouse racking is a basic necessity for almost all the manufacturing houses. Many industries use pallet racks to manage warehouse inventory. This type of material handling equipment is designed with multiple levels of storage space and is highly used in storing pallet materials.
These days, manufacturers of material handling equipment have started offering different types of pallet racking systems including selective pallet rack, cantilever pallet rack, double deep rack, drive-in and drive-thru rack, push back rack, pallet flow rack and carton flow rack. You can also choose ‘angle segments’ (also known as ‘hoekprofielen’ in Dutch language ) if you want to make your packing safe.
Take a look at the advantage of using pallet racks for handling products/materials in bulk quantities:
• Pallet system allows storage of products one upon another thereby providing high storage capacity.
• Selective pallets are made up of vertical frames and beams that are arranged in single or double rows. It allows storing of different sizes and shapes of packaged materials.
• Carton flow racks are designed to store cardboard cartoons. This type of racking system allows easy picking of fully-loaded cartons along with storing other products in the racks at the same time.
Pallets come in different sizes, most commonly 800mm x 1200mm and 1000mm x 1200mm. There are also many different designs that can be customized as per user requirements. Wooden pallets are priced at $8 to $10 if new and around $4-$6 if used.
They also undertake repair and maintenance of the pallets. These days, pallets are also being attached with radio frequency identification technology to make tracking easier.
