Custom Systems

Maximising Efficiency and Storage Space

In the world of large-scale warehousing, where the seamless storage and movement of pallets are essential, having an effective storage system is paramount. Pallet racking systems offer a solution that not only facilitates efficient pallet storage but also provides ample room for forklifts to manoeuvre safely within warehouse aisles.

Direct Shopfront stands as a leading supplier of custom pallet rack systems for industrial warehouses in the UK. We have a variety of pallet racking options available, including sliding pallet racks, aluminium racks for books, pallet flow rack systems, and more.

Significance of Custom Racking

Streamlined Efficiency and Safety

A well-designed and properly installed pallet racking system can significantly enhance safety, productivity, and overall efficiency within your storage facility. These systems ensure that pallets are stored in an organised and accessible manner, allowing for swift retrieval and seamless inventory management.

Increased Storage Capacity

Custom pallet racking systems are engineered to maximise your warehouse’s storage capacity without consuming excessive floor space. This optimised use of space not only allows for the efficient movement of forklifts but also facilitates the storage of a larger volume of merchandise.

Common Systems in UK

In the UK, several types of pallet racking systems are commonly used across industries. Understanding these options can help you choose the one that best suits your warehouse needs:

  1. Narrow Aisle Racking: This system optimizes storage capacity by reducing aisle width, allowing for more pallet positions.
  2. Double Deep Racking: Pallets are stored two-deep, maximising space while maintaining accessibility.
  3. Drive-In and Drive-Through Racking: Ideal for high-density storage, these systems allow forklifts to enter the rack structure for efficient pallet retrieval.
  4. Push Back Racking: Pallets are stored on wheeled carts, enabling the storage of multiple pallets deep and facilitating the retrieval of the front pallet.
  5. Shuttle Racking: An automated system that uses shuttles to transport pallets within the racking structure, increasing both storage density and retrieval speed.
  6. Carpet Racking: Tailored for industries like carpet retail, this system accommodates long and bulky items.
  7. Flow Racking: Also known as dynamic flow racking, it uses gravity to move pallets, ensuring first-in, first-out (FIFO) inventory management.
