In warehousing, storage capacity and accessibility are the most important factors in maximizing a facility. A Selective Pallet Racking system offers the ability to access each pallet directly. The design and layout can be engineered to meet any volume, weight or size requirement. Due to its versatility, the Selective Pallet Rack design is the most commonly used approach in laying out warehouses. Florida Forklift has access to new and used pallet racking systems.

Types of Storage Racks: Selective Pallet Racking, Gravity Flow Rack, Push Back Rack, Drive In Rack, Drive Through Rack, Double Deep Pallet Rack, Roll Form Pallet Rack, Structural Pallet Rack.
Selective Pallet Racking allow the pallets to be accessed from the rack aisle. A front and back pair of load beams provide a support for the pallet. Selective racking gives forklift operator direct access to each pallet and can be configured to work with almost any pallet size. This racking is also the easiest of racking systems to be installed.
Push Back Racking pallet racking systems are fabricated in structural or roll form steel and have a last-in/first-out. Systems are ideal for high-density multiple product storage. Push Back Racking increases the product accessibility, allows for specific selection of pallets. When a pallet is loaded or placed on the structure, the next pallet is ‘pushed’ back on the rails where it rests firmly. When unloaded, they roll to the front of the structure.
Drive-in pallet racking is designed to maximize the use of floor space within a warehouse and has a last-in/first-out rotation . This type of pallet racking requires fewer aisles for the same amount of storage. Hence, because of the space saved, they are a cost-effective option. Drive-in racking is designed in a way which allows forklifts to make their way through the aisles to continue stocking and adding additional pallets.
Pallet flow racking, also commonly referred to as gravity flow racks, are typically ideal for high density storage with multiple order picking levels. Employing the first-in/first-out (FIFO) loading system, loads are stored at the higher end and removed at the lower end point. As products continue to be loaded, the rotation becomes automatic because of the flow of the racks.
Carton flow racks offer great storage for inventories operating by first-in/first-out (FIFO) management. These systems use a rear load design, which allows for easily operated and managed inventory. Unlike racking systems, carton flow racking rotates products automatically by design, allowing for storage optimization and maximum efficiency.
