About Pallet Flow Racks

Pallet flow racks are gravity-driven pallet racking systems designed for high-density storage. These storage systems leverage gravity to move pallets seamlessly from their entry to the retrieval point. Pallet flow racks are a great equipment choice for industries with time-sensitive or high inventory.

Used Pallet Flow Racks

While deep lane pallet rack storage can seem complex, pallet flow racks make it effortless. Pallets load onto the higher end of the racking systems. Then, using gravity, they automatically flow down to the front of the racking bay. Operators then retrieve pallets from the picking side of the racking system.

In a pallet flow system, the pallets rest on a series of skate wheels or rollers sloped toward the pick face. Rollers within the system ensure smooth movement, enabling efficient, First-In-First-Out inventory management. This ensures pallets move in a consistent and controlled flow, allowing inventory to travel from loading to retrieval effortlessly.

Benefits of Pallet Flow Racks

Pallet flow racks offer some unique benefits over static and selective

Space Efficiency

Embrace the efficiency of deep lane storage without compromising accessibility. Pallet flow racks allow for storage depths of 20 pallets or more, ensuring you're making the most of available space.

Time and Labor Efficiency

Since pallets move via gravity, driving into the lanes is unnecessary. This can reduce travel time and increase the speed of retrieval operations.

Stock Control

The design inherently supports FIFO (First-In, First-Out) management, which can be crucial for perishables or items with expiration dates.


Every warehouse is unique. Pallet flow racks can be tailored to fit specific space requirements or integrate with existing systems.

Sturdy and Safe

High-quality materials and expert design make pallet flow racks stable and safe, protecting your inventory and your team.

Things to Consider Before Purchasing Pallet Flow Racks

Getting the right pallet flow racks for your facility is essential. While these systems are quite versatile, you should already know you need a FIFO system. Here are some quick tips to help you make the best choice:

Assess Your Needs

Making sure your facility is both in need and ready for a pallet flow racking system is important. Here is what you need to know:

  • Space: Measure your warehouse. Check ceiling height, floor space and any obstacles. This helps pick the right size and design of the rack.
  • Inventory: Look at what you'll store. How big and heavy are these items? Pallet flow racks are ideal for items that must be taken out in a specific order.
  • Versatility: While pallet flow racks are considered FIFO, by only using one end for loading and retrieval they essentially become pushback LIFO systems.
  • Environment: Pallet flow racks are a great choice for cold storage environments like freezer food storage.
  • Access and Speed: Consider how often you’ll access the stored items and how quickly you need them.

Consider Your Budget

Budget is always of the mind. Here are some key considerations to keep yours under control when shopping around for pallet flow racks:

  • Quality Matters: It's wise to invest in a durable racking system. A good-quality one might cost more upfront but will save money in the long run by lasting longer.
  • Setup and Upkeep: Think about the costs to install the rack. Also, remember you'll need to maintain it.
  • Future Growth: Make sure the rack you choose can be expanded or adjusted. This is useful if your storage needs grow.

FAQs About Pallet Flow Rack

Are Different Types of Pallet Flow Rails Available?

When shopping around for pallet flow racking, you may come across several different types of flow rails. Flow rails consist of a track or roller system set at a slight decline over the length of the rack. You will usually find that flow rails consist of several components:

  • Magnum wheel
  • Steel skatewheel
  • Full and split roller

What Are Some Advantages of This Type of Racking?

Pallet flow rack can improve your warehouse in many different ways. While the first thing that comes to mind when considering pallet flow racking is high-density storage, other benefits make this type of racking a great choice for any storage facility:

  • Automated product rotation. Once the rack is loaded up, product rotation becomes automatic, meaning reduced overall handling costs.
  • Save on equipment costs. Since forklifts are only necessary for initial loading and final unloading, usually, only two aisles are necessary. This means fewer forklifts, less wasted space and fewer operating hours.
  • Increase operational efficiency. Pallet flow racking, with only two aisles dedicated to loading and unloading, tends to create more orderly traffic.
