Press Release Summary:
The new Drive-In Rack System is a solution for high-density storage applications. The system requires fewer aisles than in selective racking, allowing the user to store up to 75% more pallets. It provides last in, first out (LIFO) access for forklifts with the same point of entry and exit. This rack system is ideal for high-traffic and cooler/freezer installations. An optional offset leg design for easier pallet handling is available. The welded frame construction is wear-resistant and features protective railings and a seismic-safe design.
Original Press Release:
Steel King Announces Durable, Engineered Drive-In Rack Systems
Allows users to store up to 75% more pallets than with selective racking
Steel King Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of material handling products and systems for improving operational efficiency, announces the availability of its Drive-In Rack Systems. Drive-In and Drive-Through Racking delivers cost-effective storage in high-density storage applications.
Requiring fewer aisles and providing better cube utilization than selective racks, drive-in and drive-thru racking allows users to store up to 75% more pallets than with selective racking. Forklifts drive directly into the rack, allowing storage of two or more pallets deep. Flared drive-in support rails helps forklift drivers enter the pallet rack by guiding the pallet into the bay. A Drive-In pallet rack system uses the same entry and exit point for each storage bay, providing last in, first out (LIFO) access. A Drive-Thru pallet rack system is loaded on one side and unloaded from the other for first in, first out flow (FIFO).
Because they are often used in high turnover areas and operated in close proximity to forklift traffic, drive-in and drive-thru racks are subject to greater wear and tear than other rack structures. Steel King’s drive-in rack system is engineered and manufactured to better stand up to this wear, making it the market leader among drive-in racking systems.
Steel King’s drive-in racking features unlimited storage depth and is ideal for high-traffic and cooler/freezer installations. Additionally, Steel King offers an optional offset leg design for easier handling of pallets. The welded frame construction delivers high rigidity and strength, while other optional features, like protective railings and seismic-safe designs, deliver even greater safety and stability in demanding applications.
