Conventional Storage

Traditionally, the materials are stored in block stacking method. Here the goods are stored on top of each other. However, unless all the goods are of same dimensions , & contains large quantities of same articles, this method leads to material damage & causes delay in material handling.

Heavy Duty Selective Pallet Racking

Selective Pallet racking is the most common & simplest form of pallet racking. Each individual pallet is individually accessible. The system consists of vertical frames & horizontal adjustable beams.

This form of racking entails low capital cost & flexible. Also, it simultaneously protects the goods from damage. The aisle size depends on the choice of material handling trucks.

Floor Space Utilization Approx. 40%
Practical use of available positions Maximum - 100%
Speed of throughput More than one truck can access the goods
Stock rotation Easy
Stock Variability Feasible
Safety Good
Handling Equipment Forklift, reach trucks

Heavy Duty Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking

This form of racking uses space more efficiently. The aisles are narrower and the rack heights are higher compared to selective pallet racking. However , reach trucks or stacker cranes are required for material movement.

Floor Space Utilization Approx. 50%
Practical use of available positions Maximum - 100%
Speed of throughput More than one truck can access the goods
Stock rotation Easy
Stock Variability Feasible
