DOUBLE DEEP RACKING
STORE TWO PALLETS PER LOCATION
Twice as deep as selective racking, a Double Deep Pallet Racking configuration allows for the storage of two pallets per location and can be stored a maximum of 5 levels above the ground. This saves on aisle space and allows for an increased storage capacity in your warehouse.
Double Deep Racking systems can also increase picking efficiency – as products are contained within a smaller area, they’re easier to locate.
To access the second pallet, a double deep forklift or special forklift attachment is needed. However once set up with this equipment, the benefits of this storage configuration can outweigh this initial investment. These forks can also be used to access pallets in other racking systems.
Guide rails are also added to the top beam levels to assist the drivers in lining up the fork with the pallets sitting higher in the racking.
ADVANTAGES OF DOUBLE DEEP RACKING
- Increases storage capacity by 30-40%.
- Reduced number of aisles.
- Store single product lines within the same location.
- Cost effective system.
