Pallet Racking

Pallet racks are of two types. We have the brand new pallet racks that may be purchased from authorized rack distributors; on the detailed inquiry, you might be able to find the distributors that will sell you the pallet racks at the best price in the market.

It is also a good option to find used pallet racks or second-hand ones that were earlier used by another warehouse. They would be a good choice if you are on the lookout for saving money. As there isn’t much difference between the new pallet racks and the used ones, except the used ones might be a little bent or a little bit rusty. And the used ones will also come to you at the best-discounted rates.

Just make sure to try and find dealers who have been in the same field for many years as it would be a good idea to buy from them.

Cantilever pallet racks or cantilever pallet racking system.

Cantilever pallet racks are mainly used for the storage of long pipes and rods that make use of a vertical type of space. Storage and handling of these types of products safely and securely take in an added effort that can be handled extremely well with this type of racking system.

Teardrop racks

The most common type of rack in today’s market is the teardrop racks, Just as its shape goes for the teardrop-shaped holes that are drilled into the support beams, 

The best part of it all is the fact that for assembling the teardrop racks, you wouldn’t require any instruments and it will also save your time and labor costs, as none would be required.

Warehouse racking

Warehouse racking can either mess up or assist the warehouse operations. Warehouse layout plays a major role in warehouse racking, as aisle width, docking locations, shipping areas, and other warehouse components affect warehouse racking options. With proper warehouse racking, warehouse managers maximize space and optimize warehouse organization for efficiency and a streamlined picking process.

Drive-in racking (drive-in rack) or Drive-thru racking (drive-thru racks)

When there is a need for high-density storage, drive-in racks and drive-through racks are the most suitable.

Drive-in and drive-through racks are mostly floor-to-ceiling structures and are mainly made of steel.

Both these warehouse racking systems provide ample space for a forklift to move into its bay.

When drive-in racks have one entrance and exit, drive-through racks allow access on both sides of the bay.

 As a result, drive-in racks are suited to the last-in, first-out (LIFO) process commonly used for nonperishable products or those with a low turnover. 

On the other hand, a drive-through system requires a first-in, first-out (FIFO) process. 

Industrial racks

Industrial racks come into use when there is a requirement for receiving, storing, shipping raw materials, in-process products as well as finished goods, with an idea of reducing the storage cost which in turn will help in increasing productivity without compromising the safety of the workers.

Storage shelving racks

The whole idea behind storage shelving racks is to make the best usage of the warehouse manually.

These storage shelving racks are the best way to make use of the vertical heights of the warehouse, still providing the flexibility of manual access at any given point in time. This also provides manual access to the higher levels with the equipment that can lift the operator as per the required height. (eg: forklift trucks).

Commercial storage and Commercial shelving

The difference between the commercial storage and commercial shelving: For commercial storage, the way the good is placed into the system and the way they are retrieved from the system is normally by hand, whereas in commercial shelving, the racking and retrieval are not by hand, it is per unit loads and is done with the assistance of mechanical equipment and machinery.
