Product Feeds to Picking Position By Gravity Flow
Carton Flow Rack systems for every size warehouse and every price range are gravity-driven and perfect for applications with numerous SKUs. Inventory rotation is ensured with First-In/First-Out presentation basis. Separating the loading aisle from the retrieval aisle allows pickers to operate more efficiently.
Carton Flow Rack uses sloped shelves to improve visibility and order accuracy and is the perfect answer for split case or piece picking. Other Carton Flow Rack options, such as impact decks and intermediate supports, can help guard against warehouse abuse and prolong system longevity.
Carton Flow Rack can be integrated with conveyors and other warehouse storage solutions to create functional pick modules and picking efficiency.
UNARCO manufactures many types of Carton Flow Rack—traditional snap-in roller track, including UPICK knock-down design, KPICK (Kingway carton flow rack) welded shelves, or RhinoTrac full-width lay-in roller units, and DuraFlex and D2 Low-Profile carton flow lanes.
The modular UPICK system makes shipping and installation of even the most complex modules simple. Dura-Flex full bed roller carton flow lanes easily provide complete coverage so there is no need to reconfigure lanes as box sizes change. Interchangeable front/rear assemblies and side members make ordering and installation less confusing. Vertical 1-1/2″ shelf adjustability allows for configuration ease and system versatility.
is a more durable solution than traditional carton flow for warehouses with heavy product traffic. Pre-assembled flow lanes with integrated supports simply lay into the rack and rest on the beams.
RhinoDeck is an option for lighter duty product or as a retrofit for existing Carton Flow Rack installations.
Carton Flow Rack can dramatically improve warehouse efficiency by organizing product and rotating stock automatically. Long, straight, dedicated lanes maintain product organization and keep labor costs down. Storage space can be increased up to 60% by using a minimum of 22% less floor space, thereby keeping building costs down.
Typically, Carton Flow Rack Systems use about half the floor space that standard pallet rack does and the difference can be more dramatic with multi-level systems. The simplicity of gravity-driven systems requires less capital than maintenance-prone automated systems.
Rear loading and front picking helps worker traffic flow and promotes a more efficient layout. Cartons and boxes flow to the front picking aisle and help ease the worries of order fulfillment in e-commerce facilities and large distribution centers or multi-level pick modules.
