Drive In Pallet Rack For Warehouse Storage
Drive in or drive through racking is a storage system that maximizes the use of available warehousing or industrial space. It makes this possible by arranging a racking solution such that forklifts, or other industrial equipment can drive directly into the aisles used to store your products and materials.Drive in racking can store up to 75% pallets in the same space than selective racking which depends on your application. It requires fewer aisles and better cubic storage.
