Increased Storage Capacity
Double Deep Racking
Greater use of floor space by reducing number of access aisles.
Less distance for the fork-lift truck to travel.
Not as good for rapid stock rotation – first pallet in is the last pallet out.
Better space utilisation.
Better space utilisation
A brilliant option if there is a need to maximise storage capacity.
Access with Reach Trucks
Pallets are stored two deep and are accessed using special ‘Reach Trucks’ with pantograph or telescopic forks. If you are reconfiguring an existing installation, all the existing racking can be re-used. If you relocate at a later date the racking can be re-set up again, either as standard selective or in a double deep configuration. The only additional cost is the need for a special forklift to access the second row, or back row of racking. Your traditional forklift is still suitable for the front pallets, a ‘Reach Truck’ will be required for accessing the back row. These units are not expensive and can be a low price to pay for the increased storage capacity with the double deep system.

Solution: Consider Novarak Double Deep Selective Racking which can halve the number of aisles that would be required with wide aisle application. This enables better space utilization. However this type of application requires double deep trucks and restricts access to each individual pallet.
