Double Deep Racking
What Is Double Deep Pallet Racking?
Double deep pallet racking is a racking system with shelves that are double the depth of a standard pallet. The additional depth means that pallets can be stacked two deep, essentially doubling the storage space of a standard racking system while maintaining the number of aisles.
Double deep pallet racking is an economical way to maximise storage capacity in your warehouse. You need a ‘reach fork truck’ with tines that extend out to reach the depth of the second pallet. This kind of forklift is quite common and easy to find, so this option will rarely involve any extra costs.
Double deep racking is ideal for the storage of products with a low differentiation. This is because in a double deep racking system that is filled to capacity, only 50% of the pallets are accessible from the aisle.
Increase Storage Capacity
Double deep pallet racking can store twice the amount of pallets than a selective pallet racking system with the same number of aisles. This allows for a high volume of storage in a limited space. For warehouses storing numerous pallets of the same stock, double deep pallet racking is a great solution to increase storage capacity with minimal risk of any confusion or misplacements.
Last In, First Out (LIFO)
Double deep racking is a last in, first out (LIFO) system. In a LIFO system, the first pallet loaded into a location is the last pallet to be removed. This means that double deep racking is not suitable for the storage of perishable goods and is ideal for the storage of products with a longer shelf life.
Double deep racking also comes with the option of using pallet guides for added safety. Pallet guides are lengths of steel that run from the front of the rack all the way through to the back. This provides a guide for the pallets to travel down. Pallet guides increase safety and improve ease of picking by ensuring that the pallets are square and sitting properly on the racking system.
