Holds rear pallets back 4”-6” from pick face. Foot-operated release.

Added safety for deeper lane, floor level, case-pick operations.

Automatic pallet release engages when forklift removes front pallet.

Separates front pallet until all cases are selected and empty pallet removed.

Isolate last pallet for boost to lift table or mobile cart via pneumatic controls.

Two separators strategically placed in deep-lane system for added safety.

Effective, ergonomic way to manage empty pallets and increase productivity.

Control Rear Pallet Forces for Safe & Efficient Order Selection

Pallet Separators play a crucial role in gravity flow systems. Simply put, pallet flow lanes accommodate thousands of pounds of material with the intention of flowing down to a pick face unhindered. The pressure of the rear pallets, what we refer to as “back pressure” places a strain on the front pallet and possibly a safety hazard as the front pallet is removed. The Mallard Engineering Team has developed several unique pallet separator products to relieve back pressure in our gravity flow systems, increasing both safety and reliability.

The formula for determining the amount of back pressure:

Back Pressure = .06 x (maximum pallet load weight) x # of pallets

3-deep system, 2,500 lb. load. Back pressure = .06 x 2,500 lbs. x 2 pallets = 300 lbs.
20-deep system, 2,500 lb. load. Back pressure = .06 x 2,500 lbs. x 19 pallets = 2,850 lbs.

With a full line of pallet separator products, Mallard has you covered.

Deep-Lane Systems

  • Relieves the back pressure on the lift truck
  • Allows the pallet to safely index forward
  • Increases productivity of lift truck operator
  • Prevents product damage

Lower Level Case-Pick Systems

  • Relieves rear pallet forces on front pallet during order selection
  • Allows pallets to safely index forward
  • Allows operators to easily remove front pallets
  • Reduces repetitive motion and back injuries
