Drive-In / Drive Thru Rack

Designed for High Density Storage utilizing the maximum warehouse storage cube while keeping aisle space to a minimum. Drive-In / Drive-Thru Racks can be designed using Roll Formed or Structural steel.

Product: Drive-in Storage Rack

SpaceRak Drive-in / Drive-thru racks reduce the amount of conventional traffic aisles, permitting maximum use of space for high density, floor-to-ceiling palletized storage.

Drive In Racks

Drive In Racks allow vehicles to enter the storage area for pallet placement in a back-to-front arrangement, and require the operator to back-out of the rack after pallet placement. Drive In Racks are ideally suited for "FIRST-IN / LAST-OUT" inventory management. Drive In systems can also be designed as "double entry systems" in a back to back arrangement. Double entry systems allow for greater density and allow for entry on both sides of the system.

Drive Thru Racks:

Drive Thru Racks have two access aisle for loading and retrieval. Lift Trucks can pass through the rack bay, placing loads on supporting rails from one side, and exit in the same direction. Trucks can also enter the rack bay fro the opposite side to remove loads. Drive-Thru Racks are well suited for "FIRST-IN / FIRST-OUT" inventory movement.
Both Drive-In and Drive-Thru systems offer the advantages of high-density storage and lower costs.
