Advantages and Disadvantages of Double Deep Pallet Racking

A variant of the conventional pallet racking, double deep pallet racking allows pallets to be stored two deep but still accessible from the same side. By reducing the number of access aisles and using the space saved to accommodate additional racking, double-deep pallet racking provides a highly space efficient storage solution. Although the speed of access to all of the pallet positions is restricted, with an efficient stock management system this can be easily compensated for by taking full advantage of the increased storage density.

Double deep racking provides for 50% immediate pallet access on a Last-In-First-Out (LIFO) basis and makes use of all available locations. This storage solution is best used when each Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) has several pallets.

The double deep racking requires the use of a special reach truck with either dual pantograph or slide fork attachments. Upper levels can be fitted with guide rails to assist the forklift drivers in locating the pallets. They also help in reducing forklift operator error and accidental impact damage.

Advantages of Double Deep Racking

  • Can be configured in various ways based on your requirements
  • Easy to install and dismantle

Disadvantages of Double Deep Racking
