Pallet Flow Rack

PALLET FLOW RACK – Skate Wheels & Gravity Move Pallets

UNARCO Pallet Flow Rack system is driven by gravity. Unlike static systems such as Drive-In racking, product flows back to a picking position and is easily accessible to the operator. It is perfect for fast-moving product with first-in/first out (FIFO) stock rotation. Heavy-duty skate wheels on sloped shelves allow palletized loads to flow forward for picking. The high-density storage utilizes warehouse space with fewer aisles.

How does pallet flow rack work?  Pallet Flow Rack can send pallets through standard rack or to Carton Flow Systems.  Multi-level pick modules can split full pallet loads into boxes or piece parts. Maximize warehouse space with fewer aisles by storing pallets back to back.

Pallet Flow Rack Moves Full Pallets with Gravity

Pallet Flow Rack allows product to roll forward to the picking position with the use of metal skate wheels and gravity.

Smooth rolling metal skate wheels on sturdy rails come pre-assembled. Drop lanes into the bays and secure with a tek screw. 

Pallet Flow in-line and staggered wheels

Skate wheels are assembled 0n 2″, 3″ or 4″ centers and  staggered wheels  available for heavier loads on 1-1/2″ or 2″ centers.  Create pallet flow lanes easily by dropping each track into the bay.  Side rails fit securely in the step of the beam and a metal or nylon stop at the end keeps the pallet in the bay.

Load pallets from one side of the pallet racking and pull from the other.  Pallet loads from behind move forward automatically to the picking position. As a result, this system is ideal for rotating perishables or date-sensitive inventory.

There is no limit to the size of a project or storage density. Deep Lane Pallet Flow stores as many as twenty pallets deep with the use of electro-mechanical or pneumatic speed-braking systems. UNARCO engineers braking systems throughout lanes to control pallet flow speed.
