Pallet Rack: Know the
Advantages to Different Styles
A&A Surplus Inc.
carries virtually every
type of new and used
pallet rack. What we don’t have in stock, we
can usually find for you. Please call us at
1-800-826-3526 about any type of pallet rack,
including the following styles, and we’ll do our
best to assist you:
• Selective Rack:
Selective rack provides the most flexibility in
a warehouse because you can immediately access
every pallet. Selective rack is good for
warehouses with high turnover of products. The
drawback of selective rack is low storage
• Pallet Flow
Rack: Pallets are loaded on one end and flow
forward to be unloaded on the opposite end,
providing good rotation and first-in, first-out
inventory. The automatic rotation of stock saves
time, reduces forklift use, and is beneficial
• Pushback Rack:
Pushback rack is good for dense storage of goods
that don’t have to be rotated often. Pallets are
loaded and unloaded from the front, resulting in
last-in, first-out inventory.
• Drive-In Pallet
Rack: This is a very dense style of storage
that’s often seen in freezers. Pallets are
loaded and unloaded from one side, stacked as
deep and high as space allows. Forklifts can
drive into the rack structure, right up to the
next available pallet for loading and unloading,
which provides last-in, first-out storage.
Rack: Similar to drive-in pallet rack, except
forklifts can enter from both sides to access
pallets. Drive-through rack is also good for
cold storage, fast-moving merchandise, and dense
storage of similar items.
• Double Deep
Rack: Double deep rack is similar to selective
rack, except it offers more density because
pallets are stored two-deep. They are loaded and
unloaded from one side for last-in, first-out
retrieval, but double-deep rack offers more
selectivity than a drive-in rack system.
• Narrow Aisle
Rack: Special forklifts have been developed to
navigate between very narrow aisle racks.
Pallets and boxes on narrow aisle racks are 100
percent accessible. Narrow aisle uses much less
floor space than selective racking.
Rack: Cantilever is best utilized for the
storage of long, awkward items like lumber,
plywood, steel bars, tubes, rolls, furniture,
and sheets. Since there’s no support beams in
the front, cantilever rack allows easy loading
• Portable Pallet
Racks: Portable racks do not require wooden
pallets and can be customized for better storage
density or better selectivity. Portable racks
also can be broken down and stored, which is
beneficial for fluctuating inventory levels.
