Using gravity-driven conveyors, pallets are loaded on one side and off-loaded on the opposing side of this racking system. Well suited to a first-in-first-out inventory control system.

How it Works

  • Rack is structured with pallet lanes on a slight decline creating a load side and a pick side
  • Pallet lanes in addition to the standard static racking contain roll tracks with either wheels or full-width roller bars
  • Pallets are loaded on the up-slope side and off-loaded on the down-side slope
  • As new stock is added the first-in already on the rack rolls toward the off-load side of the rack
  • Braking systems controls downward pallet speed toward the pick side

The Good

  • Excellent choice for FIFO (First-In-First-Out) inventory systems
  • Options for customization during the planning stages
  • Well-suited to production plants where stock moves frequently or stock spoils quickly
  • Ability to minimize reliance on fork lift trucks reducing maintenance costs and damage
  • Saves space and accommodates more pallets per linear foot over standard static racking
  • Ability to create deep applications eliminating wasteful aisles
  • Perfect transition zone between main warehouse and loading dock / pick-up areas

Challenges to Overcome

  • Not compatible with some product flows such as last-in-first-out
