Pallet Rack Identifier

We have designed a rack selection guide to assist in the selection of the proper type of storage solution for your application. These are only guides so feel free to contact your Engineered Handling sales engineer @ 866-722-5489 (Rack-Guy).

Whenever you are designing a rack system it is most important to understand the load you are storing. You need to know the load width, depth, height, if there is any overhang on the pallet, and is the pallet in good condition. Most importantly how much does the load weigh.

Racking Types

Selective Rack (1 deep)

Selective Rack

Selective rack is the most popular rack type, because it has the highest versatility. Single-deep selective rack, by far the most common type, is designed to provide ready access to every stored load.

Selective rack is available in both roll-formed and structural construction.

$25-35 per pallet position (Delivered and Installed)

Double Deep (2 deep)

This style of rack uses the same components as selective rack except the racks are positioned one in front of the other. This type of rack willrequire the use of a double deep reach truck and usually will require a bottom beam and pallet supports in theback positions. This type of rack will increase the cube density of the warehouse yet still maintain a 50%+ selectivity. Be aware that a double deep reach truck is a difficult piece of equipment to operate.

$35-40 per pallet position (Delivered and Installed)

Push Back (2-6 deep)

Push Back

Push Back rack is popular because it provides an optimal combinationof selectivity and storage density. Push Back is a system of telescopingcarts which ride on a pair of inclined rail assemblies mounted within arack structure. Each cart/rail assembly can accommodate between twoand six loads. It is a first-in/last-out system.

$120-130 per pallet position (Delivered and installed)

Drive-in (2-12 deep)


Drive-in and drive-through rack is the highest density storage solution available. In this configuration, long lanes of palletized product is stored in bays which accommodate lift truck travel. Because a truck enters the rack, the load is placed on cantilevered arms which support it right and left. Drive-in's density makes it a perfect solution for storageof large volumes of like product.
