making room for productivity
Automated glide racks are high density moving pallet shelf storage systems that save space in warehouses by eliminating static forklift aisles and transforming them into dynamic, mobile storage. These systems can recover over 50% of your pallet storage space so you can store more parts, tools, supplies, batch samples, point-of-use materials, and more. Click to view mobile pallet rack videos.
how the glide racks work
The automated glide racks are different from traditional, static racks because of their moveable aisles that compact together at the turn of a crank or the push of a button to remove unnecessary static access aisles. The systems can be installed using existing or new rows of pallet racks. They roll easily along floor tracks when a three-spoke crank is turned or when a button is pushed to create an access aisle in the location of the user’s choosing. Systems are installed with safety locks and sensors to protect users working in an open aisle.
With more warehouse space at your disposal, you won’t have to worry about expensive construction costs to expand or relocate your facility. More space could allow more production lines, offices, or other types of revenue-generating activities and equipment. Automated glide racks can also be used in cold storage and ambient warehouse facilities. Moving pallet shelf storage systems store necessary supplies and materials close to employees to provide quick and safe retrieval, enhancing productivity and efficiency.
Whether you operate one or multiple forklift trucks, the automated glide racks offer you up to 100% more storage capacity in the same square footage or in half the space as static shelving. They can easily be customized and reconfigured to meet your future needs as your business grows and changes, no matter how heavy the demands at your bottom line are (such as increased SKUs or consolidated storage). With 100% access to stored materials, they won’t slow down and may even increase your picking rate. Radio frequency remotes are also available to enable you to open a clear, unoccupied aisle without having to wait for the aisle to be opened. Each rack section offers a 30,000 pound capacity, so you can store small parts as well as heavy and bulky items.
