|Storage systems||:||Pallet racking|
Pallet racking is generally used for heavy duty storage applications where the stored items are loaded by a forklift. Racking systems can provide a high density solution with rack heights of over 12 metres and operational aisle widths as low as 1.4 metres.
The systems can be designed to accomodate products of different sizes and to maximise the utilization of the available internal space of the building. Typically configurations of racking systems include:
Very Narrow Aisle (VNA)
There are other types of more specialised pallet racking configurations such as:
Drive in racking
Drive through racking
Pallet support bars - these are used when pallets require additional support due to their quality or design.
Drum chocks - for supporting drums that are not palletised.
Support channels - are used for the safe storage of stillages in pallet racking.
Timber decking - to provide a level shelf for picking or supporting pallets of variable quality or size. Health and Safety where there are pedestrian or fork lift access routes through racking.
Chipboard shelving - is used to form a shelf level within pallet racking onto which boxes can be stored. The chipboard is held in position on the beams by either clips or locating blocks.
Steel decks - an alternative material to chipboard which is used with heavier loads or when hygiene is an issue.
Mesh decks - are also used to form shelves within the pallet racking. Mesh is useful if sprinkler system requirements demand an open shelf to allow the ingress of water.

These products include beam and shelf code labelling, location markers, magnetic and self adhesive lettering, ticket holders and pouches, document pockets, aisle and bay markers and weight load notices.
