Pallet Flow Rack / Gravity Flow Rack
Pallet flow rack or gravity flow rack is a type of warehouse racking system that stores pallets on wheel tracks or conveyor rollers and are loaded from one side and discharged on the other side. This provides “first-in, first out”, FIFO, product movement for efficient inventory control.
Brakes positioned in the pallet flow rack lanes control the speed of the pallet flow. Load storage of 10+ deep is not uncommon and with multiple levels, this is a very high-density storage solution that is much more organized than other pallet racking options.
Pallet flow racking systems or gravity flow racking systems are the best industrial storage and racking systems to use if you need to utilize a small space. They are a great option for smaller warehouses, as they are taller than they are wide, taking up a very small amount of warehouse space. Forklifts can move around with ease and ground space is maximized. It’s also extremely cost-effective when you consider how much product you can store per square foot.
