In today’s rapidly evolving marketplace, product lines are constantly changing and adapting to meet the ever-shifting needs and demands of customers. As a business, recognizing and effectively responding to these evolving needs becomes crucial to ensure your long-term success and maintain a competitive edge.
The ever-changing landscape of the market brings about exciting opportunities for growth, particularly through the introduction of new products. On average, new products experience a remarkable 25% annual growth, highlighting their significant role in driving demand and capturing market share. As a result, having the necessary storage capacity to effectively bring these new products to market while simultaneously maintaining existing products in high demand becomes pivotal in building higher sales volume and sustaining business success. Pallet racks are one solution to managing this increased demand by enabling superior space optimization in your facilities.
Having a thorough understanding of pallet shelving within your cold storage room is crucial when determining the size and capacity of your facility. It is common for operators to inquire about square footage rather than focusing on pallet positions, but considering the quantity of pallet positions and the concept of “facing” is essential and should not be overlooked.
Positions represent the actual number of pallets you will be able to store in your cold storage rooms.
Facing pertains to the amount of pallet that you will have direct visible access to as you draw.
Further space optimization can be achieved by upgrading the pallet racks into Push-back Shelving pallets from your pallet rack.
Push-back Shelving offers the advantage of maximizing your valuable cold storage space. Pushback shelving reduces the amount of aisle space that you will need by compacting your storage space.
This is accomplished by placing the pallet on a gravity feed metal platform which sits on a fully enclosed track that prevents cart lift-out by the forklift operator. As you load your pallets on color coded platforms, pallets glide forward locking into positions as they load. As you draw pallets from the pushback shelving, pallets glide towards the forklift operator allowing the rear pallet to reposition itself to the next position.
Drive-in/Drive-thru Pallet Rack are a cost-effective solution to high-density storage. This static system has rails running the
depth of the rack for pallet placement. Drive-In Pallet Rack Systems load and retrieve from the same side, creating Last-In-First-Out (LIFO) inventory retrieval organization. Drive-Thru Pallet Rack Systems load from one side and unload from the other to create First-In-First-Out inventory retrieval (FIFO); forklifts can enter from either aisle.
Drive-in/Drive-Thru Pallet rack provide low cost bulk storage along with guaranteed stock rotation. A Drive Thru Rack System is an excellent option for freezers.
STRUCTURAL & SHEER SUPPORT
Pallet shelving also can play a major roll in providing structural and sheer support. While our panels can span 28 outdoor and 36 indoor without any additional support our pallet racks shelving can provide additional structural support and sheer support outside when panel sizes exceed our span criteria.
Additionally pallet shelving can provide evaporator coil support when coil weights surpass ceiling panel capacity or if the roof of the building cannot support any weight.
