Cold Storage Pallet Flow Project
We recently completed a pallet flow rack system to help a client maximize their cold storage warehouse space while also meeting their pick demands. The pallet rack system we designed, supplied, and installed was a FRAZIER 13-deep pallet flow structural rack with Interroll full-width rollers.
The client selected the 13-deep pallet storage option because it allowed them to store exactly one-half truckload per pallet row with the ability to store one full truckload (26 pallets) on side-by-side rows. Because freezer space is so valuable, we designed a selective rack for the perimeter of the freezer to store single pallet SKU’s and had the LTL shipments being pulled from the other lanes of the pallet flow. Another benefit of this rack system is the FIFO nature of the pallet flow. It allows them to keep the product fresh, and the 13 deep system achieves the high-density storage they need for their freezer. This rack system was also designed around their 48″ x 48″ plastic pallets of frozen baked goods. The use of the full-width Interroll roller was needed to accommodate the plastic pallet and its profile of “boards”. When designing a 13 deep rack system, we always have the pallet tested for perfection. In this case, we initially thought a wheeled pallet flow track would be the best style of pallet flow track, but the testing proved otherwise. The pallet had slight voids in it that did not allow it to roll smoothly. If you are interested in learning more about pallet flow check out our pallet flow rack page.
