Gravity Flow Rack
Pallet Flow Rack is a high density storage system that functions as FIFO (first in, first out).
This type of system works well for time sensitive products and a limited number of SKUs. Pallets are loaded from one side and gravity rollers transport them down to the picking side of the rack.
What do you get when you combine the power of gravity with dynamic flow rails in one rack system? Streamlined material handling that cuts costs and keeps your warehouse running smoothly. Gravity flow rack systems are live storage, meaning the stored material is in motion, rotated with each load/unload through the power of gravity and regulated with speed controllers.
This first-in/first-out design makes the system an ideal carton flow option for high turnover inventory.
It’s a simple concept: flow rack rails are installed at a decline, and gravity pulls the next palletized carton or case into place when the first in line is removed. This is a high-density load storage system that uses maximum amount of space with a minimum amount of aisles needed. Because cartons and cases are automatically brought forward, pallets can be stacked back to back with only one access side.
