Double Deep Pallet Racking2019-07-04T01:58:06+00:00

Novarak double deep racking is created by placing two double sided runs together. Pallets are stored two deep and are accessed using special ‘Reach Trucks’ with pantograph or telescopic forks.

  • Greater use of floor space by reducing number of access aisles
  • Not as good for rapid stock rotation – first pallet in is the last pallet out.
  • Less distance for the fork-lift truck to travel
  • Increased storage capacity
  • Better space utilisation

Double deep is a brilliant option if you are running out of space, or if you are setting up a new installation and there is a need to maximise storage capacity.

‘Double deep’ uses standard selective type racking, configured in double rows of two, back to back. 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.
