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.
The Dexion Pallet Flow racking system is mainly used when a limited range of palletised goods needs to be stored in large quantities using the first-in, first-out principle. At the on-load face, pallets are placed in storage lanes and automatically roll forward on sloping wheel conveyors under the force of gravity. Pallet speed down the lane is controlled by a series of brake rollers and when the pallets reach the retrieval face, they are brought to a controlled halt by a combined load separator and end stop unit.
This type of storage technology, which is frequently used in the drinks industry or as a buffer storage facility in the manufacturing industry, requires only two fork truck aisles, one for loading and one for retrieval.
- Up to 60% less floor space than conventional pallet racking
- First-in First-out (FIFO) operation provides automatic stock rotation
- Dedicated load and retrieval faces mean only two fork truck aisles are required
- Higher speed of operation within the warehouse.
Dexion's Pallet Flow racking offers a wide range of track, wheel and roller arrangements to suit most types and sizes of pallet.
Guides, fitted at the on-load face, assist the forklift driver with pallet alignment.
An automatic braking system ensures that pallet movement is always safely under control. Pallets travel smoothly on full width or twin-track rollers.
A separator is used to retain the queue of pallets while the bottom one on the picking face is being taken out in safety.
Each installation is tailored to suit pallet size, weight and storage system requirement.
The Dexion Pallet Flow system is a dynamic storage solution based on our pallet racking systems with integrated conveyor modules.
The system offers a wide range of conveyor modules to suit most types and sizes of pallets. An automatic braking system ensures that pallet movement is always safely under control. Pallets travel smoothly on full width or twin-track rollers. While the front pallet is removed on the front side of the rack, the rear pallet is hold back with an appropriate device.
