Double deep pallet racking is the storage of two sets of pallets, one behind the other. The storage and retrieval processes are carried out by specially adapted forklifts with extendable forks which access both sets of pallets from the same aisle. Using this system enables storage capacity to be increased in a simple and safe way to meet business requirements.
Double deep racking is, in effect, a hybrid storage system that uses elements of both the adjustable pallet racking system and compact storage system processes.
The system does exactly what it says on the tin and stores pallets two deep in racks with access to both from the same aisle running between racks.
It is flexible and can meet a range of storage requirements, but it is particularly suitable for warehouses that store high volumes of identical products or that operate the Last In, First Out (LIFO) process.
Double deep racking allows direct access to the front pallet only. This means that unnecessary aisles are removed while efficient stock movement is maintained.
Here at Quickline we can design and install a double deep pallet racking system that is tailored to meet the requirements of your business.
Double deep pallet racking requires no specialist build technology and is straightforward to install and operate and to maintain. The system can also be dismantled and reinstated elsewhere within the warehouse without major operational disruption to meet operational change.
Product storage volumes are boosted as storage is at two depths with unnecessary aisles able to be removed and the availability of storage locations increased. Double deep racking is suited to a wide range of unit loads stored at high density and to identical products stored in volume and with medium to long term shelf lives.
Safe standards of operation can be maintained, and the system is robust and capable of being controlled by most warehouse managed systems that can operate without direct access to all pallets. It allows changes in demand for storage capacity to be efficiently managed.
