How carton live storage systems work
Ideal for picking, packing and product assembly areas - They are loaded from one end and unloaded from the other ensuring the operative has a supply of goods at all times.
The concept behind these systems relies on using different types of gravity tracks positioned within a racking system at a slight decline to allow various products to move freely within the system increasing warehouse efficiency
The boxes are positioned in individual lines depending on the size of your product. The front box is positioned to allow packers easy access to the contents and for removal. Removing the front box allows gravity to take over and pushes the rest of the line towards the front and allows more rear product loading.
No Carton live storage system is the same
At Spaceguard we don’t offer a one fit carton flow storage racks solution, we take the time to learn about your business and products and take into considerations other factors when designing your bespoke racking system such as: The shape/size and weight of the product The speed of throughput Whether products are handled manually or by machinery The dimensions of the building (Heights of ceilings and available floor space) We can build specific widths & heights, add as many shelves as required and track widths or pitches to suit your product (when required) Our flow rack systems are usually manufactured in two variants depending on the product weight and dimensions. Normally our shelves are set at one specific angle throughout to give the optimal decline for your products to move, however we can also utilize knuckled shelves which can be used to increase packers visibility and access to the front package.
