Pallet Flow Rack Skate Wheels

The Widest Assortment of Pallet Flow Wheel Options Available

UNARCO offers a variety of pallet flow wheel options, such as single in-line wheels, double staggered wheels, or triple staggered wheels. The most common 3-track pallet flow option is to use single in-line wheel tracks on either side of a double staggered brake channel track.

Pallet Flow Rack systems are gravity-driven and UNARCO’s design ensures against hindrance of product flow. Wheels are available in metal or polycarbonate/plastic options and a number of configurations. Heavy-duty skate wheels can be configured to meet any pallet capacity. In-line wheels are available on 2″, 3″, or 4″ centers to assist with concentrated loads. For extreme loads, staggered wheels on 1½” or 2″ centers can be added.

Full-width metal rollers are even available in widths from 4.25" to 52" wide and load capacities up to 5000 lbs. Two- and 3-track systems are available in both plastic and metal wheel configurations. Pallet Flow Rack lanes drop into the rack and are moveable within the pallet racking bay to adjust to any pallet size.

Metal skate wheels contain an anti-backup device, which keeps the pallets moving towards the picking position. Once flow arrives at the picking position, product is retained by a pallet stop. These stops are available in steel for added durability or nylon for a soft cushion.

Notched flow lane units rest in the step of the beam to add a lower profile which protects the ends of the flow rail. A Tek screw can be drilled into the beam step to secure the rail in place. The special notching around the step of the beam allows for a very secure fit.


UNARCO can configure a pallet flow rack system from metal or plastic skate wheels in staggered or inline pallet flow lane designs.

System Highlights:

Pallet Flow Lanes are available in many options for all types of pallets at any price point.

  • Polycarbonate material blend

  • Lubricated bearings

  • Sealed wheel bearing chamber for any environment

  • Solid metal skate wheels are available with inline and staggered configurations

  • Wide-width and full-width metal rollers can be used for more pallet contact and support

UNARCO has a pallet flow option for every project and can test various wheel arrangements and pitch with your actual product and pallets in our testing facility to ensure proper flow on every project. Heavy-loads and deep lanes are not a problem and designs can be configured to flow up to 25 pallets deep. Warehouse space is at a premium and creating a high-density picking operation with pallets nested as close to each other as possible removes aisles and maximizes floor area for efficient product flow.

Pallet Flow Options

UNARCO heavy-duty pallet flow rack side rails are manufactured to be strong enough to handle all of the abuse from heavy pallets and constant product movement.

Special beam sections can be manufactured for floor level pallet flow rack applications to raise pallet flow lanes off the warehouse or distribution center floor.
