When to Use a Flow Rack in Your Warehouse

Flow RackA flow rack, also known as a gravity rack, is a dynamic storage system that utilizes rollers to move pallets into place for retrieval when one is taken out. The first thing to consider when determining if flow racks are right for your warehouse is your workflow, as flow racks are only suited to first in, first out (FIFO) storage systems.

Other factors to consider are your warehouse space and storage needs. Flow racks are ideal for spaces that require high storage density. Because they can accommodate a large number of pallets, they are perfect for lessening the number of aisles needed, so they are best for warehouses where space is limited. If you have a larger warehouse, however, you’ll likely want to choose a racking option that offers multiple access points.
