Spring-Rail high density racking is a unique solution to creating density in a warehouse. As pallets are loaded into the system, springs stretch to cover the full length of the track. When the front pallet is unloaded, the trailing pallets are automatically pulled forward. Spring-Rail functions well as a push back system alternative, excelling in three areas where other high-density systems have problems:
- Flat loading
- Using existing rack
- Awkward product sizing
Flat loading: There are numerous industries which require product to be stored flat. The best example is the liquids and beverage industries. When a pallet is loaded on a typical high-density system (like push back or pallet flow), the racking needs a pitch or grade to allow the deeper product to return to the front. This is not the case with Spring-Rail because the system uses the spring’s force, rather than gravity, to return the product. This allows products that risk spillage to be stored cost-effectively.
Using existing rack: Cost is important to every business, so why not use existing racking to help create the density you are looking for? Spring-Rail is unique in that it does not require new rack to operate, thanks to its no-pitch design. In many situations, because the original racking tends to be designed for the current weights, Steelhead can reconfigure existing rack to work with the Spring-Rail.
Awkward product sizing: There are too many industries to count which have product that measures beyond a typical 40″x48″ pallet dimension. A great example is audio-visual storage. The cases used to store cables and equipment are universally stored in wheeled cases and—speaking candidly—can be a nightmare to store with any efficiency. Instead of attempting to palletize them, Spring-Rail can be used to store items directly on the rails, solving the storage issue.
