KOOI®-ReachForks for Double-Deep pallet Racking
Double-Deep storage instantly gives you more pallet locations compared to conventional pallet racking. Many lift truck manufacturers has the know-how and technology to help customer optimizing their warehouse space like double-deep pallet racking with the help of KOOI®ReachForks. Space equals money. So how do you get the most out of your warehousing space? There are numerous methods of storing palletized products in a warehouse – from simple floor block-stacking to highly sophisticated automatic crane stores. All have their virtues, depending on your operational requirements – whether it is simply to store as many pallets as possible, or to allow a very high degree of selectivity and instant retrieval of any given pallet. For many types of warehouse, however, double-deep stacking combines highly efficient space utilization with excellent availability, using flexible, cost-effective handling equipment.
Advantages of Double Deep Pallet Racking:
- The ability to stack two pallets deep – often with guide-rails to upper beam levels for added safety
- Increased storage capacity by as much as 10-15% when compared with Selective Racking
- 50% immediate accessibility with reasonable stock rotation
- Safe and secure handling with the bottom pallet usually off ground
- Ability to use double deep handling equipment for other tasks
As less aisle space is needed, you can really maximize storage space using this system. You will need a forklift truck with telescopic forks to access the pallets but this investment pays for itself very quickly.
Telescopic forks have a number of distinct advantages like:
- Very affordable.
- Easy to install on existing fork carriage.
- Easily swapped like standard forks.
- Excellent visibility like the normal forks.
- Just around 100 kg extra weight to compared to standard forks.
- Improved residual lifting capacity to other double-deep attachments like scissor reach.
- Same handling speed like pantograph
- Virtually no extra lost load thickness compared to standard forks.
- Shorter mast height due to absence of moving auxiliary pantograph mast.
- No hinged parts, bearing, rollers meaning reduced maintenance costs.
- Double-pallet transport without need for extra-long forks.
- Easy to install onto other equipment such as fork positioners or side-shifts.
- Improved residual lifting capacity due to fork positioner mounting on mast, hence reduced risk of tipping.
