Enhance Your Storage Space With Drive-In Racking 

Drive-in racking systems offer a cost-effective solution for achieving high-density storage, and effectively maximising warehouse space, there are notable differences that should be considered when selecting the most suitable system for your specific warehouse operations.

Drive-in pallet racking provides access to only one side of the aisle, functioning on a first-in, last-out (FILO) basis. This system is well-suited for those who prioritise storage efficiency over frequent stock rotation.

At A-Z Storage Systems Ltd, we offer a comprehensive service for drive-in racking, including design, installation, repairs, and ongoing maintenance. Drive-in racking restricts access to pallets from a single aisle, allowing for high-density storage. This design is well-suited for environments where products have a long shelf life, and large quantities of a single product need to be stored, such as in cold storage, freezer, or seasonal goods applications.

Drive-in or drive-through racking proves to be a cost-effective solution for bulk storage of similar products. These systems efficiently utilize both vertical and horizontal space by storing pallets in a back-to-back and floor-to-ceiling configuration. The continuous rails within the system provide support for each pallet, aiding in smooth positioning and retrieval.

Intelligent Design

The design of drive-in racking is strategically crafted to maximise space utilization, allowing pallets to be efficiently stored across multiple rows and levels within the compact structure. Pallets are systematically arranged from bottom to top and back to front. In drive-in pallet racking, the forklift truck shares the same aisle for loading and picking. In contrast, drive-through racking involves separate aisles for loading and retrieving, making it suitable for scenarios where stock rotation is essential.

Applications Drive-In Racking

This system is well-suited for various storage facilities, including cold storage environments like frozen or refrigerated warehouses. Its high compactness minimizes empty space, reducing operational costs in temperature-controlled environments.

Drive-in racking excels for seasonal or pressure-sensitive goods. Pallets can be stored deep within the rows for extended periods until needed, making it ideal for low-turnover products with a high number of pallets per SKU. Additionally, for fragile and delicate goods, the system offers high-density storage, ensuring protection from potential damage.

Choosing Drive-In Racking for Your Business

Drive-in and drive-through racking represent just one option among many compact pallet racking systems. To make an informed decision tailored to your business needs, consider reaching out to A-Z Storage Systems Ltd today. Our design team will conduct a site visit, discussing your requirements, along with drawn-up plans and a quotation. If drive-in or drive-through pallet racking doesn't align with your preferences, alternative compact pallet racking options, such as shuttle racking, mobile racking, or pallet live racking, can also be explored.

Benefits of Drive-In Pallet Racking:

Drive-in racking systems provide a host of benefits that make them a popular choice for optimising storage space. These benefits include:

  • Maximised Storage Space: Drive-in pallet racking systems can double the amount of storage space available, offering more density than other storage systems.

  • Ideal for Bulk Storage: They are ideal for storing a single product type in bulk. However, if configured with multiple lanes, they can also accommodate various product types.

  • Individual Pallet Support: Each pallet is supported individually, reducing the risk of damage during storage and retrieval.

  • Eliminates Operating Aisles: These systems eliminate the need for operating aisles, as forklifts access goods through storage channels, making them highly efficient in terms of space utilisation.

  • Robust and Low Maintenance: Drive-in systems are generally robust and require minimal maintenance.
