Adjustable pallet racking (aka wide aisle racking) for 100% selective pick of pallets

As the most common form of pallet racking storage: Standard pallet racking in a wide aisle layout provides unrestricted access to all pallets. Pallets stored in wide aisle racking are not subject to any restrictions in layout and are freely accessible at all times.


Drive in racking

Drive-in racking is ideal for storing large quantities of the same type of goods: your existing space can be used up to 90% more effectively with Drive-in racking compared to standard, conventional pallet storage systems.


Narrow Aisle

Narrow Aisle pallet racking is the space-saving option if floor space is limited: maximum storage capacity, fast accessability to every pallet and quick order-picking straight from the racking.


Pallet Shuttle System

Pallet Shuttle System is a semi-auto­mated storage solution for the handling of goods inside chan­nels similar to a drive-in setup. The Pallet Shuttle System removes the need for forklift trucks to enter the aisles and hence offers a cost effective and time saving storage solution.


Pallet Flow

Pallet Flow racking, otherwise known as Pallet Live Storage, is suitable for FIFO (First In First Out) storage of goods with a high rate of turnover and fast access to goods is required, but utilises up to 60% less space than a conventional pallet racking warehouse.
