Drive-in racking has certain advantages over classic pallet racking. Pallet racking involves a definite loss of warehouse space due to the use of separate aisles between each double row of racks. If the need for storage capacity exceeds the capabilities of conventional pallet racking there are various alternatives.
Not only are goods placed next to and above each other in drive-in racks, but also unlimited in depth. By driving a forklift in the storage channel the goods can be placed on the different levels. This works most efficient for high volume goods which are stored together. Ideally, there is only 1 reference per storage channel to avoid extra movements. Because of the setup of the drive-in racks the goods cannot be removed per full level, but rather one at a time from top to bottom..
One should not forget to check the dimensional specifications of the forklift to ensure there is enough space to drive in to the storage channels.

Specific information regarding the operation, benefits, components and quality of our drive-in racking can be found in the tabs below.
Using drive-in racks the forklift is steered into the racks to place pallets and other goods or to take them out. There is no limit to the number of pallets in depth or the number of storage channels next to each other.
The drive-in rack is designed to achieve a higher storage capacity than possible with conventional pallet racking. When storing goods several pallets can be placed one after the other on the same level. This determines that the drive-in rack is mainly suitable for the storage of uniform pallets where several pallets of the same product must be stored.
The drive-in rack can be adapted to your specific needs in order to obtain maximum use of the available space in your warehouse.
To avoid both forgetting to order necessary parts or making unnecessary purchases, you can count on our technical advice when ordering the specific accessories. Below you will find a list of the most common accessories for drive-in racks, this list can of course be extended with the accessory that you specifically require or a custom-designed solution.
CLN Racking’s technical team will advise you on the possibilities for your warehouse design and the realization of the design you have chosen. This involves a series of analyses, containing but not limited to storage requirement analysis, analysis of environmental factors, strength calculations and assembly processing. The design of the drive-in racking will always be based on the European standards and FEM (European Materials Handling Federation) recommendations in force.
We meet the following design and production standards;
