Sturdy Design of Open Structural Channels
UNARCO’s Structural Steel Drive-In Rack offers a sturdy design that is an alternative to roll-formed pallet racking. Certain applications, such as in the grocery industry, prefer the structural Drive-In Rack design because the open channels prevent debris accumulation.
In addition, structural applications have a higher resistance to local upright damage, which is particularly helpful when considering the heavy traffic involved in Drive-In Rack applications.
Structural options are adjustable on 3″ vertical centers with the standard “Z” Rail Arm support system or full Structural Steel Drive-In Rack rail. Either application can incorporate UNARCO’s sloped leg in the front in order to prevent damage from forklift traffic.
Both roll-formed tubular designs and structural designs offer sturdy Drive-In Rack systems for back-to-back storage that increases the warehouse space utilization. Both are easy to assemble and provide the most cost-effective answers to facilities with dense pallet storage.
Structural options are available with a variety of add-on safety products to help protect the rack from damage. Sloped-leg frames get the upright out of harm’s way from forklift traffic and a number of column protection devices and end-of-aisle pallet rack protection accessories can be included in the design.
Since forklift drivers can drive directly into the rack, the Drive-In Rack is subject to more abuse and needs added protection for safety. Structural flared entry rails can help guide pallets into the bay and add-on accessories can protect pallet rack from damage.
Structural steel for Drive-In and Drive-Thru racking applications allows for easy installation and tight tolerances no matter how high the system.
Strength and durability
Customizable to any length
No areas for debris to collect in food storage applications
Easy attachment to UNARCO Z-Rail design
Because Drive-In and Drive-Thru racking is used frequently in the food and beverage industry, in blast freezers and coolers, designs for all rail systems will integrate with structural pallet rack. The adaptability of structural steel with welded side load arms creates the capacity needed for any storage application.
