Double deep pallet racking uses a LIFO (last in, first out) methodology, which means that it is not ideal for perishable products but offers higher storage density, especially for warehouses with limited storage space and identical products.
Double deep pallets consist of selective pallet racks placed back-to-back, allowing for storage of two pallets deep on each side of the racking system. So, there are four pallets deep on each side of the aisle instead of two.
This racking system is designed to double the storage capacity compared to single deep racking. In single-deep racking, pallets are stored one deep on each side of the racking system, allowing for direct access to the pallets stored. A double pallet racking system is ideal for warehouses where a lot of the same products are stored because you can’t access every pallet at a given time. Special forklifts or reach trucks must be used to access items on double pallet racking.
Double deep pallet racking are used in the following industries and settings:
Like other pallet racking systems, only an experienced installer should install double-deep pallet racking systems. Only then can you be sure that your rack is installed correctly and follows the installation standards.
Carefully plan the layout and design of the racking system. Assemble all the components, such as frames, beams, uprights, etc., and install them following the manufacturer's instructions.
As per the manufacturer's guidelines, attach any necessary accessories or safety components, such as frame and upright protectors, row spacers, column deflectors, rack nets, and pallet backstops.
Once the installation is complete, inspect all the components of the double deep pallet racking system to ensure it complies with safety regulations and load capacity requirements.
Double-deep pallet systems can be customized by adding accessories like guardrails, rack nets, rack guards, column protectors, bollards, etc. to ensure pallet safety.
