Drive-In Rack

Drive-in pallet racks is a drive-in system that provides static high-density storage for large quantities of like product with low-level turnover. It is ideal for like products with a high number of pallets per article type, generally stored and shipped in large lots.

Drive-in rack systems offer the highest use of available space in terms of both area and height. Forklifts can drive directly into the rack to allow storage of six or more pallets deep. Drive-in rack can generally accommodate as many article types as there are loading aisles. They are built with upright frames and side rails.

Drive in and drive through pallet racking allows for dense storage and huge space savings. Forklift operators drive into the rack system to get what they need. Building a drive-in pallet rack provides a great option to warehouses looking to store large amounts of similar product.
