Drive-In racks are designed for storing large quantities of similar products. These are stored depth wise, beside each other, on continuous pallet supporting rails. As a result, a high storage density is obtained and thereby a high utilisation of floor space. This racking type is used in places where space is expensive, such as coldrooms.
If you would like to make the most of your warehouse space, finding clever storage solutions is key. For warehouses that carry large amounts of similar products, you cannot go past drive in pallet racks. With pallets sliding backwards along the rail, products can be stored more deeply, helping you to make the most of your floor space.

What Is Drive In Racking Used For?
Does your business have bulk pallets of the same product? Do you need to store as much product as possible? Would the LIFO (last in, first out) principle work for your warehouse? If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, drive-in pallet racking could be the perfect solution for you.
Drive in racking is a versatile storage system that can be used to store a wide range of products such as:
- Fresh food
- Cold room storage
- Fruit and veg
- Brisbane markets
- Solar panel
Drive in pallet racking is one of the best ways to store pallets in a high-density configuration, as you have the option to increase the number, and depth, of pallets as you require.
Regular pallet racking only gives you the option to pick and store pallets from a front location. Drive in racking, however, allows you to drive down the aisles and pick from however deep the pallet is and whatever level the pallet is on.
With this system, you eliminate the need for an aisle, as you can drive into the racking system, allowing you to pick from the first, second, third, fourth or even 10th location deep (depending on how you set up the system).
It is a system based on cubic volume, because each square metre is being used to store product instead of having space wasted with an aisle.
Bulk Store in Tight Spaces
Drive-in pallet racking makes the most of your warehouse space with the ability to store a large amount of pallets, especially when it’s a confined area or has deep voids to fill.
For example, cold rooms and freezers are notorious for having limited square meterage. Using a drive-in system would allow you to maximise the storage capacity, with the pallets numerous in depth from floor to ceiling.
Drive-in pallet racks are also ideal for clients who have a corridor they wish to maximise. In this case, you can run your drive-in racking down the full length of the corridor, storing a great number of pallets in what was once an unutilised space.
Customisable In Three Directions
With the ability to adjust the height, depth and number of levels, our drive-in racking systems can be tailored to suit your warehouse needs. This gives you the option to store the same amount of product if you have a low roof but wide floor area or a high roof with a narrow floor area. Whether your area is deep or shallow, we can create a storage system for your space and product.
We can even offer our drive-in pallet racks in a double-entry configuration. This is where you can access the rack from both sides, as well as drive in from both sides. This option is extremely efficient for delivery and dispatch storage, where you can store product in ‘daily runs’ or ‘intake’, to form a clean and organised operating system.
MACRACK has a whole range of rack protection options to create physical barriers and increase the longevity of your product. Our additional protection options include:
- Front post protection (prevents accidental damage to the front upright)
- Guide rail (prevents the fork truck damaging the rack when driving in and out)
- Pallet stops (stops pallets being pushed off the back)
- Galvanising (all parts of the rack can be galvanised to prevent rusting, in addition to our frames coming galvanised as standard)
- Heavy-duty components (we can ramp up the thickness of the steel in the rack to increase weight loadings and help prevent minor damage).
These rack protection options ensure your drive-in racking remains in top condition.
