Drive in racking and selective pallet racking can be distinguished, the space application rate is relatively high of drive in racking.
They all have one thing in common, they all need to use forklift to access pallets.
Drive in racking are suitable for the storage of small types and large quantities of goods. The access mode requires a forklift to access the goods inside and one side to retrieve the goods. Compared with the selective pallet racking, the application rate of its storage space can be increased by more than 30%.
Selective pallet racking is simple in structure, safe and reliable, and can be adjusted and combined at will. It is not limited by the order of goods in and out of the warehouse. It is low in cost and suitable for any handling tool. It is a kind of storage rack widely used in the industry at present. In terms of structure, the difference between them is that selective pallet racking is composed of beam and frames, while the drive in racking does not have such a design.
The drive in racking extends longitudinally, which is a continuous overall rack without channel separation. It is able to place more pallets than selecitve pallet racking. Generally speaking, the drive in racking can continuously place 10 pallets of goods in one lane. For selective pallet racking, there are 2 or 3 pallets in each layer. In this way, drive in racking is more conducive to the demand of intensive storage. Selective pallet racking have specific forklift access, with a very high sorting rate and first in first out, while the drive in racking are the whole building type rack. There is no special forklift access. Forklifts need to drive into the racks.
