What’s the difference between Drive-In & Double Deep Racking?

What is DRIVE-IN Racking?

Drive-In Pallet Racking Systems provide maximum storage capacity using the minimum amount of space. This system consists of continuous lanes of racking with only a single load and retrieval aisle. Loading and unloading is undertaken in the main by reach trucks that drive down each lane into the racks.

  • Operates on the basis of First-In Last-Out (FILO)
  • Store very large quantities of homogeneous (same size) products.
  • Good product protection
  • 60% net pallet area usage of overall warehouse area.

What is DOUBLE-DEEP Racking?

A derivative to the Selective pallet racking, the Double Deep system requires the use of a specialist reach truck or an attachment fitted to the reach truck. This system provides an excellent method of increasing warehouse capacity or when alternative systems are not possible.

  • Achieving increases in capacity of up to 30% more than Selective pallet racking.
  • Lower cost alternative against Drive-In Racking, while increasing capacity by up to 30%.
  • Does not require homogenous pallet types like Drive-In.
