Gravity Flow Pallet Racking

Key benefits

  • Keeps stock rotating on a FIFO (First In First Out) production basis
  • Stores a huge amount palletised goods, in a compact space
  • Allows clear separation of variant product into lanes, or levels, or bays
  • Self-organising stock locations
  • Constant pick face regenerates until lane is empty
  • Reduction in forklift movement, forklift wear and tear
  • Increase in labor productivity from reduced travel time
  • Less racking damage as forklift only operates front and back
  • Gravity operated.

 

 

Gravity Flow Pallet Racking

Do you need to keep stock rotation in your warehouse? Then Pallet Gravity Flow racking is for you. Using the FIFO principle for palletised goods, you can store your pallets on a declined gravity fed system. There the pallets actually move by themselves creating a FIFO system of pallet storage. It’s a smart and functional pallet storage option for company’s who have time sensitive product that needs to be constantly rotated. So if you wish to keep your stock rotating, give BOS Storage systems a call to discuss how this option will work for you.

Therefore Pallet flow pallet racking are compact structures with sloped roller track sections. They allow pallets to slide from one side of the installation to the other at a controlled speed – by sheer force of gravity.

Additionally, the system can store large quantities of pallets in depth. Gravity flow storage is ideal for many modern material handling needs. The system is ideal when handling large quantities of uniform goods. For example, high intensity dispatch handling, perishable goods handling – and more.

It enables perfect rotation of goods, in line with the FIFO (first in, first out) principle.

Pallet Flow Racking is often referred to as; FIFO Racking, Pallet live racking, Pallet Flow Racking, gravity fed racks or roller racks.

Design Features

Store your pallets in either;

‘Full width roller system’ which is a 50mm steel roller the full width of the pallet. Spaced consecutively down the lanes every 75mm. This system allows for a bit more flexibility with pallet selections. The team at BOS Storage can also engineer it to suit push back options.

‘3 wheel track’ where each lane has 3 runs of nylon wheels, in a staggered formation. This requires you use Australian Standard pallets, but is a great option to reduce bounce.

Down each lane we incorporate ‘speed controllers’. this prevents the pallet from accelerating and reducing the possibility of damage. We base the engineering off of your pallet weight, the temperature in your warehouse and the amount of pallet locations.

You are able to adjust Pallet flow racking to suit many pallet weights. But this works best with standard Australian pallets, to reduce the amount of variation.

You can decided the layout and design of the racking system. With how many pallets deep, how many pallets wide and how many pallets high. This gives the flexibility to adjust the system based off your production and storage needs.
