Wheels are meant to roll…  and to effortlessly flow your pallets from point A to point B, whether in a gravity-fed pallet flow rack system or on floor mounted push-assisted lanes.  Mallard has a number of accessories to manage the speed of flow (speed controllers) or to hold-back pallets as needed relieve rear back pressure (pallet separators) within all of our gravity-fed pallet flow rack systems.

Benefits:

  • Holds back pallets
  • Move where needed along the pallet flow lane
  • Simple foot-operated pedal with magnet hold down
  • Mechanically set and released
  • Application floor mounted, push-assisted pallet flow

 

Mallard has a variety of push-assisted pallet flow lanes used for a variety of applications in distribution and manufacturing: finished goods staging, shipping/receiving, and assembly and case-pick operations.
