Selective Pallet Rack

The Selective Pallet Rack System is the most popular and versatile type of pallet racking for individual and direct access to each pallet.

Selective pallet racking system provides efficient use of space and immediate access to every load stored, making it the best solution for warehouses that need to store palletized products with a wide range of SKUs (stock keeping units).

Advantages of Selective Racks

  • rovides direct access to each pallet with no need to rearrange which saves time and helps organize
  • Each SKU can be accessed directly
  • Multiple forklifts can be in the aisle at the same time so no time is wasted waiting
  • Easy to control stock
  • Allows for adjustment or relocation of pallet positions and stock
  • More floor space because selective racking fits in small spaces
  • Versatile to fit your warehouse design
  • Adaptable to any volume, weight or size of goods stored
  • First In, First Out System – products can go out in the same order they came in (great for storing a wide variety of products with a few items each)
  • Low cost for materials and installation

Disadvantages of Selective Racks

  • Large quantities of products would require a large amount of storage space
  • 12 meter maximum storage means that some head space may be wasted
  • Different sized sized items will require different sized racks (increased stocking and unloading times)
  • Not great for high-volume

Warehouse Solutions Inc. has created storage racking systems for many businesses ranging in size from a few bays to thousands of bays of racking. We have built them to custom fit the product to be stored when required and provided a flexible design to allow for changing product types for other customers.


  • To increase the number of pallets stored, double-deep racks can be utilized, enabling one pallet to be placed in front of another on each side of the aisle.
  • Rack-supported warehouses, constructed of selective pallet racking, can be a cost-effective storage solution, as they do not require the existence of a building prior to construction.
