Pallet Racking System

Selective Racking

Selective racking is a cost-effective, high-capacity storage solution.

Applications and features:

  • Stores pallets using the FIFO principle (First in, First out)
  • All pallets can be retrieved independently
  • Arranged into single and back-to-back runs
  • Indoor and outdoor applications
  • Most commonly used with counterbalanced forklifts and walkie stackers
Pallet Racking System

Drive-In Racking

Drive-in racking suits high volumes of the same SKU.

Applications and features:

  • Stores inventory using the FILO principle (First in, Last out)
  • Great for seasonal items that move in and out quickly
  • Pallets are arranged into cubic systems - X pallets (wide), Y pallets (deep) and Z pallets (high)
  • Higher pallet density, up to 70% greater storage capacity than selective pallet racking
  • Can be designed as a single entry drive-in or drive-through system
  • Ideal for cold storage with high turnover and limited space
  • Allows the use of counterbalanced forklifts
Pallet Racking System

Double deep racking

Double deep pallet racking is a high-density storage solution with easy access.

  • Made of back-to-back selective pallet racking
  • Most commonly stores 2 pallets deep
  • 50% of product is immediately accessible
  • Uses the FILO principle (First in, Last out)
  • Aisles are usually only 3,000mm to 3,500mm wide to suit most double deep reach forklifts
  • A double deep reach forklift must be used
Pallet Racking System

Narrow Aisle

Narrow aisle pallet racking is a high-capacity and space saving storage solution.

  • Maximises floor space and utilises height
  • Aisles are usually only 3,000mm to 3,500mm wide to suit most reach forklifts
  • Stock is retrieved perpendicular to the direction of forklift motion
  • Uses the FIFO principle (First in, First out)
  • All pallets can be retrieved from the rack independently
Pallet Racking System

Vertical Rack

Vertical racks are designed to safely store long products vertically.

  • Maximise your warehouse space by safely storing products vertically
  • Every vertical rack installation has its own load guide and loading capacity standards specifically to APEX
  • Single and double sided configurations
  • Customisable in height and lengths
  • Paired with 600mm long non-load bearing divider arms
  • Can be integrated with your standard pallet storage systems within the same row of racking
  • Goods are accessed by hand
  • Great for timber, PVC conduit, steel and aluminium
