Standard Pallet Rack Systems

  At AK Material Handling Systems, we’re committed to supplying our customers with the high quality, name-brand pallet rack they need.  As part of this commitment, we carry a selection of new, in-stock standard teardrop pallet rack that is second-to-none.  Our inventory features a number of the most trusted names in pallet racking, including: Speedrack, Spacerak, and Ridg-u-rak. For AK Material Handling Systems, no project is too big or too small to handle.  Customers with larger warehouse projects can receive factory direct discounts, as well as warehouse layout and design consultation.

Push Back Pallet Rack Systems

  Are you looking to store more pallets in less space? A push-back pallet rack system can enable you to do just that.  Push-back pallet rack systems increase storage density, allowing you to truly make the most of your available warehouse space. These systems offer the ability to increase pallet count without sacrificing selectivity.  This feature gives push-back systems a leg up on many traditional storage systems, and the superior combination of density and selectivity means you’re getting the most of out of your warehouse in terms of efficiency.

Drive In Pallet Rack Systems

  Drive-in pallet rack systems boast the greatest storage density of any of our engineered pallet rack systems.  By eliminating aisles, drive-in pallet rack systems are able to maximize warehouse storage space. In fact, a drive-in rack system can increase your pallet storage by as much as 60%.  Due to their ability to deliver optimal storage density, drive-in rack systems are prevalent among warehouses with fist-in, last-out inventory rotations. Drive-in racking is also commonly referred to as “drive-through high density storage.”

Cantilever Rack Systems

  Some materials don’t fit neatly into pallet rack systems.  Lumber and steel, for example, are often too long to fit on pallets, and may not have squared edges.  Materials such as these are best stored using cantilever rack systems.  Cantilever storage warehouse rack systems are also known as furniture racks, and are ideal for storing long items in continuous runs in order to avoid left-to-right vertical uprights interfering with the placement of the product on the shelf. Cantilever racks can be found in a wide variety of settings, such as lumber yards, hardware stores, or plumbing supplies warehouses.

Gravity Flow Pallet Rack Systems

  Get your warehouse flowing with a pallet flow rack storage system. Pallet flow rack systems use metal rollers and the force of gravity to feed pallets into the rack’s pick positions. Like drive-in rack systems, gravity flow racking maximizes storage space by minimizing aisles. Unlike drive-in systems, however, gravity flow systems operate using a first-in, first-out sequence.  Gravity pallet flowing systems are engineered based on individual needs, and can be designed to hold up to 20 pallets deep in a single lane of storage.

Carton Flow Rack Systems

  Carton flow storage systems are designed to accommodate high volume order picking with reduced operator activity. Similarly to gravity flow pallet systems, carton flow system use gravity and metal rollers to “flow” inventory stored in cartons. They are commonly found in “flowing” warehouses that have a large number of products being picked daily. Because these systems are gravity-driven, they work excellent with conveyor picking as well, providing both maximum visibility and order accuracy.

Work Platform Flooring Systems

  For those looking to increase warehouse space, industrial mezzanines are a superb alternative to building an addition or leasing new space.  Functioning as an elevated platform above your current floorspace, these systems maximize warehouse space by utilizing your available overhead room, as well as your square footage.  Making the choice to install a mezzanine can double, or in some cases even triple your existing operating area, but for as much as 80% less cost than that of an addition.  In addition to the value advantage that mezzanines pose, they also offer added convenience, as they can be constructed in-facility without disrupting your workflow.  Our mezzanines are designed and engineered in the United States using the highest quality materials and workmanship.

Warehouse Layout & Design

  In addition to supplying customers with top-tier pallet rack products and engineered rack systems, AK Material Handling Systems provides design services for the storage and handling of materials through manufacturing and distribution centers.  AK Material Handling System’s professional designers have acquired years of experience listening to the needs of our customers, and will work to provide you with the customized system that’s right for you.
