Drive In/Through Racks-SMACO Drive In Racking sometimes is also referred to as “Drive Thru” is a storage method that increases storage density and is extremely efficiently because of the storage concentration of pallets. Warehouses with large production runs benefit the most from these racking systems. Product is rotated in a last in, first out (FILO) inventory method. Individual pallets cannot be accessed directly, but one by one from the entry point of the rack.
Drive In racking offers a high density of pallet storage with low selectivity. Consequently, it is ideal for product with a high number of pallets per SKU. This racking consists of a series of tunnels with rails on either side at multiple levels that supports the pallet. Since Drive In racks can be subject to more abuse than Selective rack; rack integrity and strength are essential.
