1. Unconventional Design Unites Full & Split Roller Pallet Flow in Single Lane

    Super sacks on pallet flow rack is nothing new in the Mallard engineering testing lab. In fact, in the past we’ve successfully used full roller, split roller and our Magnum wheeled pallet flow lanes to accommodate super sacks, but we’ve never combined two pallet flow styles in one lane… until now. This is one unique pallet flow design, and for good reason. Here’s the story: Pallet Flow Lan…Read More

  10. Put an End to “Toss & Launch” … Let Gravity Do the Work!

    Watch Proper Pallet Flow Loading & Unloading Pallet Flow Racking is a high-density storage solution using slightly inclined wheeled or roller tracks to store multiple deep pallets. Pallets loaded on the charge side of the lane gently flow in a controlled manner toward the opposite pick aisle for fast, efficient storage and order selection. The efficiency benefits of pallet flow are many includ…Read More
