Galler push-back racks and flow racks
The racking technology of push-back racks and flow racks offer optimal cubic space utilisation with dynamic block storage. And they make stock level monitoring easy.
The basic principle of both systems is a compact block of racks consisting of channels next to each other and on top of each other. The channels are fitted with roller lane elements with 4 % inclination. This slightly sloping design allows the goods to move through the channels by gravity alone. Flow racks are loaded from one side. The goods run through to the opposite side where they are unloaded (FIFO storage – first in, first out). Conversely, push-back racks are operated from one side only (LIFO – last in, first out). The truck pushes the pallets into the channels working against the inclination of the roller lane. Both racking systems make it easy to take inventory; expiry dates or batch numbers are easy to monitor.
