Pallet Track: Pallet Storage Solutions

| December 23, 2015

Did you know there’s an easy way to create dynamic pallet storage for fast movers integrated within the pick line?

Pallet storage solutions are essential for many material handling facilities, but choosing the best one for your operation can be confusing. Our engineers have developed high quality, durable Pallet Track with rollers or wheel rails designed to optimize flow. With pallet storage solutions from UNEX, you get:

  • Options – Pallet tracks are available for single or double-deep pallet positions.
  • Customization – Many companies only offer standard lengths, but UNEX will make the track length to fit your needs, from 24” to 144” in ½” increments.
  • Flexibility – Rack and floor mounting methods are available.
  • Safety – A spring-loaded rear stop prevents pallets from being accidentally pushed back and falling off the rack.

Choose the Experts

UNEX Pickologists have been designing and manufacturing carton flow solutions for more than 40 years. With our pallet storage solutions and other time-tested, innovative solutions, we’ve helped transform manufacturing and distribution centers into more flexible, productive, safe and profitable operations. Now, we’d like the opportunity to help you do the same.

Pallet Track Features & Benefits

  • Creates a “First-In First-Out” (FIFO) storage system. Product is loaded from the rear and removed from the front.
  • Can be floor mounted or supported by pallet rack beams
  • Available in lengths from 48″ to 144″ in 1″ increments
  • Increases storage density
  • Increases efficiency
  • Reduces fork truck operations
  • Reduces labor costs
  • Reduces damage
  • Green — no energy consumption

Wheel Track Features & Benefits

  • Staggered wheel type flow rail is commonly used to handle “wrong way” GMA style wooden pallets (with bottom boards perpendicular to flow)
  • Rails can be used in 2 or 3 track configurations
  • 2-deep pallet storage lanes come complete with ramp stops at discharge end to allow pallet to come to a controlled stop
  • Available options include anti-backup stops and floor-mount supports
  • Available in custom track lengths

Roller Track Features & Benefits

  • Roller pallet track works well when handling:
  • Single face pallets (no bottom boards, with 2 or 3 stringers)
  • Euro style pallets with bottom boards parallel to flow
  • Plastic pallets with feet
  • Heavier loads because they provide high load capacity per roller and greater contact area
  • Track configuration of 2 or 3 tracks per pallet position
  • 2-deep pallet storage lanes come complete with full-width ramp stops at discharge end to allow pallet to come to a controlled stop
  • Available options include floor supports, special end treatments for attaching to rack beams
  • Available in custom track lengths

Wheel Rail Specifications

  • Standard 2-1/2″ x 1″ x 12 gauge galvanized channel
  • Frame capacity of 210 lbs per ft when supported on 48″ centers
  • 1-1/2″ staggered wheel centers provide maximum support and minimize indentation in wood pallets
  • 1.9″ diameter steel wheels on 1/4″ diameter axle are rated at 100 lbs capacity each

Roller Specifications

  • Standard 3-1/2″ x 1-1/4″ x 12 gauge galvanized steel channel
  • Frame capacity of 500 lbs per ft when supported on 48″ centers
  • Optional roller centers from 2″ and up, depending on load
  • 1.9″ x 16 gauge galvanized steel roller with 7/16″ hex axle is rated at 170 lbs capacity each
