Flow Rail High Density Pallet Racking

High Density Storage with great pallet selectivity

Provides High Density Storage

Combining the flexibility of Push-Back with the density of Drive-In systems, Flow Rail is the ultimate LIFO (last-in/first-out) high density racking system for pallets. While push-back systems typically consist of lanes up to 6 pallets deep, Flow Rail lanes can hold up to 10 pallets deep with no incline or wasted vertical space. Watch Video

Cost Effective

  • Flow Rail can be installed on existing selective racks or drive-in systems.
  • For new projects, roll-form could be used instead of more costly structural steel.
  • The system also uses conventional fork-lift trucks.

Better Selectivity and Flexibility

Flow Rail lets warehouse managers stock up to 10 pallets in the same lane while mixing different SKU's in the same bay.

Unlike drive-in systems, which on average stand 40% empty because bays need to be fully emptied for effective stock rotation, Flow Rail makes each lane independent resulting in occupancy ratios in the order of 85%. Goods can be picked individually from any level without having to empty the levels above or below.

The Flow Rail system can store an impressive variety of products, regardless of shape or physical form. It's an effective way to keep pace with the handling requirements of changing goods:

  • It is very easy to extend or shorten the length of Flow Rail tracks. When made longer, 100% of the existing material is reused.
  • For extra wide sizes, twin-loading multiple tracks can be used. A third rail can also be added for weak pallets or very heavy loads.
  • With Flow Rail, different size and model lift trucks can be used thus eliminating the need for dimensional constraints on lift truck size for accessing drive-in bays.

Trouble-Free Operation

Flow Rail systems are manufactured using a fully automated process and top quality low temperature resistant materials for years of reliable trouble-free performance.

Flow Rail Chain

The risk of rack damage is greatly reduced since lift trucks perform all pallet operations at the front of the rack instead of inside.

  • Pallets are easy to load and unload
  • System does not derail or block
  • No motors: no parts to replace, minimal maintenance required
  • made from rust-proof materials selected for durability and low temperature resistance (-22°F/-30°C), system can be installed in coolers & freezers

Better Protects Workforce and Company Assets

When operating in drive-in tunnel, lift truck drivers don’t always report the damage they can cause from accidental bumps that can weaken structures and increase the risk of rack failure and injury. With Flow Rail, operators upload and unload from the face of the rack so there’s no driving in and out, thus limiting structural wear and tear while significantly reducing accidental risk.
