Increased storage space with Drive In racks
The Stow Drive In racks increase your storage space utilisation considerably.
Drive-in racking systems eliminate picking aisles and are the ideal solution for storing large quantities of similar pallets. The system provides safe block stacking for goods, that are too fragile to be stacked one on top of the other.
Stow’s Pal Rack system is particularly suitable to build drive-in installations. The upright widths of up to 140mm allow Stow to build very high installations.
Types of drive-in racking
Drive-in racking systems apply the LIFO (last in, first out) principle for loading and unloading. Drive-through installations are loaded and unloaded according the FIFO (first in, first out) principle. To guide the truck or pallets and to protect the installation we recommend the use of ground rails.
There are three types of drive-in racks, depending on the load and unload procedure and the accessibility:
- Single drive-in racking
- Double drive-in racking
- Drive through
Stow increases the productivity of its drive-in racks by the use of high visibility upright guards and ground rails. The entry guides are not connected to the ground rails, allowing quick replacement in case of damage.
