Your warehouse is ready to be racked, and you’re both excited and daunted by the task! With so many racking options to choose from, you want to get it right. You want your racking to be strong, suitable for your products now and in the future, and for your products to be as accessible as possible. It seems like a lot to ask, but thankfully at Storage Ideas, we are the experts on racking systems. We can present you with a range of ideas that will have your business more productive than ever.
Here are the best racking ideas on the market today to help you decide what will suit your needs:
Selective Pallet Racking
Selective pallet racking is the most common type of storage system due to its simplicity and economical price. In a selective pallet racking system, all pallets are available when you need them, and you’ll never need to move a pallet out of the way to access the one behind it. While it’s fantastic for immediate access of your product and the ability to move stock around, selective pallet racking does use a lot of floor space. Thus, it’s suitable for businesses that don’t need to maximise their floor space to increase the storage density of their warehouse.
Double Deep Pallet Racking
Double-deep racking, also known as two deep pallet racking, is both a selective and non-selective racking system. While it does increase your storage density, and is great for those on a budget, double deep pallet racking needs specialised machinery for operations, so it’s important to take this into account.
Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking
Narrow aisle pallet racking is a great choice for many warehouses. Narrow aisle racking takes advantage of your floor space by maximising the storage density, while giving you easy access to your stored goods. Narrow aisle pallet racking needs specialised machinery to access goods, without damaging or bumping the racking system.
Push Back Racking
Push Back Racking is a great choice for dense storage with front loading and unloading. Push-back pallet racking can store pallets up to six deep. As a pallet is removed by the forklift, the next pallet will gently move on the inclined rails into the front position. If you need dense storage, but also easy stock access, then push-back pallet racking is a great option and is ideal for bulk storage.
Tyre racking can come in a variety of sizes and diameters to suit the tyres you are supplying. Tyre racks are a great way to store tyres vertically, so you can maximise your floor space and be able to reach and pick tyres needed with minimal effort. Tyre racking can be used for bicycle tyres, motorbike tyres, car tyres, truck tyres and more.
Carpet racking is one of the best ways to store rolls of carpet, or any other material that comes is cylindrical in shape, such as rolls of vinyl or garage doors.
Good carpet racking stops the material from sagging by being custom built to suit the user’s needs. Each shelf is supported by boards to support the entire length of the rolls and the rolls are then available for easy picking, keeping them in good quality for longer if they need to be moved often.
