How to Choose The Pallet of Different Type of Pallet Racking

The racking pallet is a special pallet on the warehouse high density pallet racking. It is one of the most common logistics equipment in warehousing turnover, and it is also one of the most used equipment in conjunction with warehouse shelves. Although there are many types of storage racking, the most frequently used are heavy duty pallet racks, drive in pallet racking, and radio shuttle racking. How to choose the pallets of these three types of storage shelves? The following will be explained to you by BR RACKING.

Classification of pallets:

According to different materials, pallets can be divided into four types: steel, wood, plastic, and new energy materials.

Heavy duty pallet racks use metal pallets:

Usually a group of this kind of shelf can have 2-3 metal trays placed side by side for the needs of placing goods. This type of rack is also often called a pallet racks. When using metal pallets for heavy duty pallet racks, pay attention to some problems. First of all, it is necessary to determine the position between the metal pallets and have appropriate space to facilitate the operation of the forklift. Secondly, try to place the metal pallets neatly on the beams of the shelves, and handle the relationship between the goods and the metal pallets. Avoid safety accidents, etc. The foot of the pallet rack must be installed with expansion screws to ensure the stability of the pallet rack.

Shuttle racks use plastic pallets:

The basic principle of shuttle racking is that the rack and the shuttle that can be moved form a simple unit, which can be moved in the warehouse. The racks with the shuttle running inside are controlled by a front-end center console. The forklift lifts the rack and places it on the center console of the designated rack. The forklift then places the inbound pallet on the shuttle to begin the storage operation. When the forklift is about to store the next pallet, the shuttle transports the pallet quickly and steadily to the designated storage location in the rack.

Drive in racking depends on your own situation:

Because the drive in rack is a continuous whole-building rack that is not separated by aisles, it also uses pallets continuously, which also reduces obstacles and maximizes the ability to store goods. In use, the trays can be arranged in both unidirectional and bidirectional directions. The total depth of the one-way (wall-facing area) shelf is best controlled within 6 pallets depth, and the total depth of the two-way (middle area can be picked up on both sides) is best controlled within 12 pallets depth to improve the efficiency of forklift access. and reliability.
