The first choice for warehouse managers is to utilize pallet racking systems to maximize available space. If you choose to use pallet racking in your warehouse, there are a number of factors to consider. Depending on the needs of your warehouse, there are several different systems to choose from, and our article below, MAXRAC will break down the most common racking systems.

Cantilever racking systems

Cantilever racking can store items that are awkward or too long to fit on pallets, as well as lumber and steel. These items can be stored on these systems for long, continuous periods of time to prevent vertical columns from interfering with product placement on the shelves.

Cantilever racking systems offer the following features.

Can be customized in any shape or size to meet your product needs

Provide unlimited horizontal space with a center column design

Provides extensive load capacity for seismic or standard warehouse applications

Heavy duty Cantilever racking

Push-back racking systems

Push-back rack push-back pallet racking increases storage capacity so you can utilize all the space in your warehouse. One of the reasons this storage option is becoming increasingly popular is that it allows you to increase the number of pallets you have without giving up selectivity.

Push-back rack systems offer the following features.

They are made of durable materials for maintenance-free operation

They offer the ideal combination of storage density and selectivity

Pallet flow racking systems

Pallet racking systems use gravity and metal rollers to move pallets throughout the system. Pallet flow racking can meet the needs of any application because they use the first-in, first-out (FIFO) method.

Pallet flow racking systems offer the following features.

Save utilities, labor and space

Provide larger volume storage space

Optimal product rotation and expiration dates

Pallet flow racking

Drive-in rack systems

Drive-In Pallet Racks For maximum storage density, drive-in pallet racks are our first choice. They increase warehouse cube applications by eliminating aisles, they are first-in, last-out, and are best suited for inventory that is not time sensitive and can be moved in large quantities.

Drive-in rack systems offer the following features.

Designed for your forklifts and pallets

Provide additional storage capacity compared to the direct access provided by pallet racking

Provides more control over all inputs and outputs

Reduce costs, space usage and more loads with deep aisle storage
