For cost-effective, high-density storage, Drive-In / Drive-Thru pallet racking is often the best choice. Requiring fewer aisles, and providing better space utilization than standard selective pallet racks, Drive-In / Drive-Thru racking allows you to store up to 75% more pallets.
Drive-In pallet racking allows forklifts to drive directly into the rack to allow storage of two or more pallets deep. Because forklifts enter Drive-In / Drive-Thru racks, these types of pallet racks are subject to more abuse than any other rack structure. Steel King’s Drive-In style pallet racks are engineered and manufactured to better withstand forklift punishment, allowing us to become the market leader in drive-in racking.
When should you specify Drive-In Style Pallet Racks?
- We've installed Drive-In and Drive-Through Racks in a number of cold storage applications, due to the need to store as many pallets as possible in as little expensive freezer space as possible.
- When you have seasonal items that move quickly out of your inventory.
- When you have a large amount of similar items that can be stored in a single pallet position and accessed last-in, first-out
- If you don't store a wide variety of loads in the rack.
