Types of Roll Formed Racking



Roll formed racking forms are the base from which many different storage solutions can be built.


Selective Racking
  • Great for high SKU counts
  • Maintains FIFO (first in, first out)
  • Every pallet has a facing
  • Suitable for most lift trucks
  • Improved productivity
Push Back Racking
  • Space Saving
  • Loaded and unloaded from replenishment aisle in rear
  • High densities – three and four deep systems are common, which allows blocks of 6 or 8 deep, with back to back rows. Depths of up to 6 deep are also available, at higher costs
  • Less rack, truck and product damage 
Bolted Pallet Racking
  • Reduced freight costs
  • Easy to reconfigure & relocate
  • Pre-engineered connections
  • Reduced stocking expense & lead times
  • Reduced maintenance & repair costs
  • More flexibility for stocking distributors
Cantilever Racking
  • Suited to items such as building materials, piping, rolls, furniture, and sheet goods
  • Arm heights are adjustable to suit product spacing requirements
  • Can be configured as single-sided or double-sided
  • Use with counterbalanced or reach truck
Carton Flow Racking
  • Improves pick rates
  • Ideal for full case and split case picking
  • Separates replenishment from picking
    activity, eliminating contention
  • Can be integrated with standard pallet
    rack, allowing replenishment storage
    above
Double Deep Racking
  • Doubles the density of racking between the aisles.
  • Provides double the storage space per SKU to accommodate faster movers.
  • Flexibility – reach trucks equipped with deep reach attachment can still fulfill all other reach truck functions
Drive In/Thru Racking
  • High density racking system, with virtually unlimited depth.
  • No specialized fork lift trucks needed.
  • Level storage medium – no concerns about height restrictions as with sloping systems.
  • LIFO – if stock rotation is an issue, you need to ensure that tunnels are being fully emptied before replenishing.
Pallet Flow Racking
  • Strict FIFO (First In First Out)
  • High density – there is theoretically no limit to depth- systems of 20 pallets deep and more have been installed.
  • Throughput – can keep pace with high volume palletizers, and other production lines.
  • Productivity – eliminates lift truck travel time – pallet flow lanes do the conveying.
Very Narrow Aisle Racking
  • Advantageous for high SKU counts with pallet in/ pallet out movements
  • 100% pallet selectivity
  • Can pick cases at elevated levels with order picker truck
  • Utilizes specialized VNA lift trucks
  • Maintains FIFO (First in, First out) 
Just a quick note:

I would like to compliment the people at Provincial Lift for their great work in regards to the Racking we purchased from them. All the way from dealing with the ordering of the racking up to the installation of the racking. When we came to a time issue, Provincial along with Chris and his crew were soon on the scene to get the job done in a timely fashion to meet our deadline. Chris was there after we moved all the product in to make sure we had no issues, which there were none, everything worked out perfectly. Hats off to the Provincial Lift crew.
