Types of Pallet Racking For Sale

In the search for quality, affordable pallet racking, it is easy to get overwhelmed by the many different types of pallet rack systems on the market. Each storage option works in its own way for specific applications. 

We aim to offer a quick overview of the leading pallet rack types and when to use each one. Storage capacity is another factor to consider for any common type of pallet racking. Always begin your pallet rack search with a clear understanding of your product, including pallet shape and size, product weight, and product type. That said, here are the common styles of pallet racking and when to use each one:

Selective Pallet Racking

Selective pallet racking is the simplest and most popular warehouse storage system. Vertical frames and horizontal beams interlock to form this static, bare-bones racking. This type of pallet racking is heavy-duty shelving for pallets with capacities ranging from 2,000 to 50,000+ lbs per pallet rack beam level. 

Selective racking is suitable for warehouses of any type but is especially good for facilities storing many different products with a low number of each SKU. Every product in a selective system is immediately accessible by a forklift.

Drive-In/Drive-Thru Racking

Drive-In/Drive-Thru pallet racking is a high-density pallet rack system that requires forklifts to drive in and out of the system to place and retrieve pallets. This type of pallet racking is ideal for storing multiple pallets of the same product and is excellent for perishable products like food or beverages.

Drive-in racking is more susceptible to forklift damage. Still, it is appealing due to its unique ability to offer first-in, first-out (FIFO) or last-in, first-out (LIFO) storage configurations.

Pushback Pallet Racks

Pushback pallet racking is a dynamic storage system with rolling carts consecutively pushed back into the storage lane one after the other with the addition of each new pallet. Pushback racks are a LIFO system ideal for high-quantity, non-perishable goods. 

Gravity Flow Racking

Gravity flow racking includes pallet flow rack and carton flow racks. These high-density storage rack systems have designated loading and unloading aisles and offer high-density FIFO storage. Industrial wheelbeds or rollers glide pallets automatically from the loading zone to the pick face.

Gravity flow racking is ideal for applications with multiple pallets of the same SKU number.

Cantilever Racking

Cantilever racking is designed to store long products like lumber, carpet rolls, tubes, piping, furniture, etc. Unobstructed horizontal arms protrude from centered upright columns to keep products of any length.
