Depending on storage capacity, layout, and the products being held, every warehouse has completely different needs for pallet racking systems. Warehouses that store many irregularly shaped, long, or wide products, such as diverse building materials, should use cantilever racking systems. Cantilever racking systems provide several practical options for facilities that require a versatile, dependable, and quickly changeable racking system for specialised storage requirements.
Due to their size, shape, or weight, cantilever racks allow for the open storage of objects that are generally impossible to store using more conventional, narrower racking methods. With a flexible vertical design that works best for your operations, storage needs, and the kinds of products in your warehouse, cantilever racks are incredibly simple to install and much simpler to adjust or reconfigure. Cantilever racks lift upward and use the vertical space in your warehouse instead of using important horizontal floor space. The shelf units can also be modified to accommodate different product sizes, forms, and load capacities as needed.
Building supplies like long, thin steel beams or lumber and pre-packaged furniture that need to be put together are examples of things that are difficult to shelf. Cantilever racks' adaptable construction not only makes it simpler to store and organise these kinds of goods but also makes sure that objects made up of several packages or boxes may be appropriately categorised together in the exact location without taking up floor space.
Pushback pallet racks permit inventory access from the front of the frame, limiting forklift access to the front pallet. Pushback pallet racks reduce the number of forklift access aisles required in the warehouse by restricting the number of inventory access points to one. More floor space is available for inventory storage because fewer access routes are needed. By increasing the number of pallets each rack can hold, pushback racking is intended to increase storage density. Deep pallet racking provides more storage depth, which is how they achieve this.
High-density storage systems like pushback pallet racking can improve workflow effectiveness, cut labour costs, boost storage density, and improve worker safety, among other advantages for storage operations. For organisations that employ a last-in-first-out (LIFO) inventory management strategy, pushback racking is particularly helpful. The product that just arrived is the first to be marketed in LIFO systems. This inventory management method is most frequently employed in environments where the inventory does not depreciate over time.
Increased workflow productivity is another advantage of pushback pallet racking. The time needed to retrieve merchandise is significantly decreased because these racking solutions offer direct access to pallets. Additionally, you'll see a rise in forklift operators' productivity since pushback pallet racks let forklifts load and unload pallets without going into the lane.
