- Pallet Racks
- Pallet racks are material handling storage solutions designed to store materials on pallets (also known as skids), typically within a warehouse setting. There are many varieties of pallet racking, which all have horizontal rows with multiple shelf levels. Different systems of pallet racks include: drive-in, drive-thru, flow, and push-back. Drive-in pallet racks load and retrieve from the same side, creating last-in-first-out (lifo) inventory organization. Drive-Thru pallet rack systems load from one side and unload from the other side to create first-in-first-out (fifo) inventory retrieval with forklifts. Pallet flow rack systems use gravity to move pallets on smooth rolling metal skate wheels on sloped rails. Push-back pallet racks use a dynamic rail system, in which deeper pallet loads automatically advance to the aisle, when the front pallet load is retrieved. Push-back pallet rack systems offer similar storage density as drive-in pallet rack, while improving selectivity and accessibility.
- Pallet Wire Shelves:
- The Feature: Wire Mesh Decking from NationWide Shelving uses open wire construction. The Advantage: Open wire design for bulk storage shelving wire mesh decks reduces dust build-up along and increases air and light circulation. The Benefit: Because of improved visibility from this bulk storage shelving decking, warehouse and stockroom managers or workers can have an easier time organizing and retrieving items.
- Return on Investment: Wire decking has built-in supports, which would hold more weight than particle board decks. Besides having a bigger weight and size capacity, wire decking lasts longer and is more durable than particle board decking because it won't warp from water damage.
