Conventional Pallet Racking
The Drive-in system is a pallet storage format that is based on the «first in, last out».
It is mainly used for storing large quantities of goods of the same kind. Pallets of the same code are stored in depth and height.
Drive-In systems are consisting of internal pallet loading corridors with supporting beams.
The forklift truck is brought into the aisles carrying the load elevated above the final loading level. The pallets are placed on the carrier beams from the depth to the inlet and from floor to ceiling. Specific self-centering rails help to put the pallets in place safely and quickly, eliminating the time-consuming alignment. The rails and the arms (bearing beams) are readily adapted to the size of the pallet.
The unloading of the shelf is made from top to bottom and front to depth of the ramp. Ground rails can facilitate maneuvering forklift, helping the movement and minimizing the possibility of accidents.
The design of the system depends on the pallet type, size and weigh.
Using Drive-in racks allow maximum storage density using conventional forklifts.
Compared to conventional storage system Drive-in saves space up to 90% as the number of working aisles is reduced to a minimum and the space ideally used.
