Drive In Pallet Racking Systems

A Nationwide Design and Installation Service

How do drive-in racking systems work?


Drive-in Racking is an ideal solution when high-density storage is required. It is very similar to block stacking, as pallets are stored on cantilevered rails. This makes the loading and retrieval of pallets simpler, but also prevents goods from becoming damaged.

The system works on either a first-in-first-out (FIFO) 'or' first-in-last-out (FILO) setup, meaning pallets can be loaded or retrieved from either side of the block depending on your requirements and available space.

This system enables more pallets to be stored per cubic metre than any other storage system available on the market. Stock rotation is however limited, so the system is best suited to the storage of seasonal goods or bulk goods of the same type.

Drive-in racking is particularly popular for clients with cold-store environments or those for whom efficient use of space is the ultimate priority.
