1. Pallet Flow Test Fail? What Can Go Wrong and How to Make It Work

    It’s always important to test non-standard pallets before committing to a pallet flow lane configuration.  While the Mallard team has a large variety of products and features to apply to a pallet flow lane to ensure success, on rare occasions we come across pallets that present too many challenges to be able to recommend use in a pallet flow lane… at least without alteration. These oversized …Read More

  2. Preventing Pallet Flow Speed Controller Failure | Mallard Best Practices

    No one wants to hear the words, “We have a system failure.” When you're talking pallet flow racking, one component in particular that can cause the system to break down if it is not properly configured into the lane is the speed controller. Speed controllers are vital to the safe operation of the pallet flow lane and to ensure that everything keeps moving forward as intended. To that end, let…Read More

  3. High-Volume & Heavy-Duty Case Picking –Flex Separator for Pallet Flow

    Flex Separator for pallet flow has been updated and improved to meet a greater variety of customer warehouse challenges. Flex separator is installed in floor-mounted pallet flow to optimize high-volume case picking. The deep-lane configuration stores a ready-reserve of 4-8 pallets deep thus the role of the pallet separator is crucial in removing the potential danger of back pressure in the lane. B…Read More

  4. Building Pallet Flow for 2000 Pounds of Construction Supplies

    Pallets weighing over 2000 lbs. are not something to be taken lightly. Ok, pun aside, maneuvering heavy pallets around a busy warehouse is a serious safety and productivity concern. Whether consisting of construction materials, frozen foods, auto parts or home décor, pallet flow rack is a valuable tool for protecting your inventory and warehouse staff while achieving high productivity. The Mallar…Read More

  5. Which Way Do You Flow? Pallet Flow Rack Test Solves the Question

    Engineering the various components of a pallet flow rack lane is a careful process and fundamental to its success. However, the type of pallet, pallet condition, and the pallet orientation all play pivotal roles in optimizing the effectiveness of the pallet flow rack system. Following is a helpful test video from our Engineering Testing Lab that clearly shows how these elements come together to cr…Read More

  6. 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

  7. Properly Planning Pallet Flow for the Pick Module

    Thanks for dropping in to the Mallard “all things gravity flow” blog series. Consider this a public service announcement-type of topic that will hopefully save customers from an expensive warehousing design mistake... let’s talk about properly designing pallet flow rack for a pick module. Pallet flow is an excellent choice for pick modules. It is an efficient, time-saving tool useful for cas…Read More
