The Versatility of a Great Racking System

Warehouse racking and storage systems provide the ideal product throughput based on your warehouse needs. Looking for the ideal storage system for your distribution center? Or, maybe seeking to remove the bulk product from your floors and transform your warehouse? All can be accomplished with a versatile warehouse racking solution. With the right solutions, you’ll soon notice benefits like increased accessibility, durability, and overall warehouse storage capacity.

Layout Considerations

Some things to consider when determining the best configuration and type of racking system to implement include the climate of storage area and fork lift specifications. Temperature, rack height and aisle size are key elements in developing the right solution.

The most common and versatile type of rack system is the pallet rack. With its modular design and flexibility, selective pallet rack provides direct access to every load, making it the most efficient use of space. When dealing with bulky and oversized items, cantilever rack is your typical and optimal go-to for medium to heavy-duty storage.
