Pallet Live Storage
The pallet live storage system on gravity rollers, is a conventional pallet racking equipped with roller channels mounted on slope for gravity displacement of the load units. FIFO system: first-in-first-out (the first pallet in, is the first pallet out).
Suitable for companies that need to guarantee a FIFO operation with a maximum use of space, a high turnover of pallets and minimal staff requirements.
The operation of pallet live storage systems is simple, pallets move by gravity from the loading area to the retrieval zone, shortening loading and unloading times. Live storage racking consists of roller channels with a slope between 3% and 4%, which makes the pallets move by gravity and at a controlled speed.
· Great use of the available space up to 80% of surface in the warehouse.
· Reduction in handling time.
· Fluid displacement by gravity and controlled speed.
· One SKU per channel.
· High turnover of palletized products thanks to the FIFO system.
Gravity pallet live storage systems is the result of combining conventional pallet racking and roller modules mounted on a steel frame fixed on the racking beams.
Most common channel slope of rollers is between 3 and 4%.
The pallets enter the loading point (higher side of the channel) and move to the retrieval point (lower side of the channel) in a controlled manner, so that the pallets are being accumulated one after the other in the depth. In the unloading side, when one pallet is unloaded the next pallet takes its place and is ready to be picked.
The pallet racking is designed to allow a correct positioning of the roller tracks and achieve the necessary slope required.
