A variant of the standard pallet racking, as the name implies, double deep pallet racking allows pallets to be stored two deep but still be accessible from the same aisle.
By reducing the number of access aisle and using the space saved to accommodate additional racking, a double deep pallet racking system provides a highly space-efficient storage system.
Although the speed of access to all of the pallet positions is restricted, with an efficient stock management system this can still be easily compensated for, by taking full advantage of the increased storage density.
Double deep racking is ideal for cold stores, dry stores and the storage of multiple pallets of the same products.
50% immediate pallet access provides reasonable stock rotation on a LIFO (Last In First Out) basis and makes good use of all available locations. This system is best used when each SKU (stock keeping units) has several pallets.
The system 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 forklift drivers in locating pallets. They also help reduce fork truck operator error and accidental impact damage.
