Drive-In RackStorage Solutions is proud to be partnered with Speedrack.  Speedrack has been at the forefront of the storage products industry for more than 50 years, and they have been responsible for a number of revolutionary designs for racking equipment.  From designing the first totally tubular selective rack to the first free standing drive in rack, Speedrack has set the bar high for racking design.

Storage Solutions is committed to providing our clients with industry leading materials and equipment.  We are a proud vendor of Speedrack’s selective rack, cantilever rack, and drive-in/drive-thru rack.  Together, Storage Solutions and Speedrack help to save you time and money on all your pallet racking needs.

For those of you who don’t know a lot about pallet rack, here are some helpful terms and definitions:

Double-Deep Racks – Usually two rows of selective racks, one placed behind the other, on which pallets may be placed two deep by a double-deep reach truck. Fifty percent of all loads are immediately accessible and, in the worst case, it is necessary to remove the front pallet on any level to have access to the one immediately behind it. Applies to a storage requirement for many pallets of few SKUs.

Automated Storage/Retrieval System (AS/RS) – A combination of equipment and controls, which handles, stores and retrieves materials with precision, accuracy and speed under a defined degree of automation. Systems vary from relatively simple, manually controlled order-picking machines operating in small storage structures to computer-controlled storage and retrieval systems, totally integrated into the manufacturing and distribution process.

Material(s) Handling – 1. An aspect of materials management relating specifically to the physical transfer of materials.  2. The movement of materials (raw materials, scrap, semi-finished and
finished) to, through and from productive processes; in warehouses and storage; and in receiving and shipping areas.

CART2SHELFR-279-lg-resized-600We here at Storage Solutions would like to devote this weeks blog to the new Clearance Section on our website.  As you may or may not know, we recently moved into a new, state of the art facility.  Our new facility filled up quickly with the used pallet rack that we buy and sell.  Unfortunately, we just don’t have enough space to fit everything from our two old warehouses under our new roof.  BOATTABLE-BEST-resized-600So, we have decided that the equipment that is still being stored in our old warehouses will be put on clearance in an effort to sell it a little faster.  Some of the items available in our Clearance Section includes utility/service carts, workbenches, office furniture, shelving, and other used warehouse equipment.  Please visit the Clearance Section of our website for more information and pricing.

We want to educate you with some Pallet Rack definitions:

selectivePallet Storage Rack A structure composed of two or more upright frames, beams, and connectors for the purpose of supporting palletized materials in storage. Among the common methods of assembly are welded, bolted, or clipped.

Selective Rack – Pallet rack that is one load (single) pallet deep. Implies all loads are equally accessible from the (fork truck) aisle. Contrast with Double-Deep Racks.

cantileverCantilever Rack (pictured right) A rack consisting of arms cantilevered from columns. Most useful when there is need for a full clear shelf that can be loaded from the front without obstructing uprights.

First-In, First-Out (FIFO) – An inventory valuation method, in which costs of material are transferred in chronological order.

Last-In, First-Out (LIFO) – An inventory valuation method, in which costs are transferred in reverse chronological order.
