Drive-In/Drive-Thru Racking Systems

Drive-In/Drive-Through Rack Systems

Increase storage space and productivity with high-density rack systems.

Drive-In/Drive-Through storage racks use a system of upright frames, rails, and ties. This system allows a vehicle to enter the rack structure to load or unload pallets on continuous rails. These high-density racking systems are typically subject to more abuse than selective racks due to the way they are utilized, so rack integrity and strength are very important factors.

LIFO – Single-entry drive-in rack allows a lift truck to enter from one side, with the supporting beam in the rear of the rack. FIFO – Double-entry drive-in rack allows lift trucks to enter from both sides, with the supporting beam in the middle of the rack.

Drive-In Racking – LIFO System

For repetitive product application and addressing the need to take advantage of cubic space available for storage, when block stacking is not expedient, drive-in rack is the right application. A drive-in rack is closed at one end, allowing for last-in, first-out storage.

A drive-in rack differs from a drive-through rack in its use of the supporting beam. Accessed from one side only, drive-in racks can increase productivity and use up to 80% less space than selective storage racks. They’re typically installed in conventional warehouses or as the supporting structure of rack supported buildings. Last In/First Out (LIFO) organizational concept is used with this system.

Drive-Through Racking – FIFO System

A drive-through racking system is similar to a drive-in rack except that the lift truck is capable of driving straight through the structure at any storage location along the aisle. A drive-thru rack is also open at both ends, allowing for First-In/First-Out storage (FIFO).
