SK3400 Pallet Flow Rack for FIFO storage

Optimize warehouse space for perishable products with gravity flow rack

SK3400® is a gravity flow storage system consisting of flow rails are set at an incline in the rack structure, allowing loads placed on one end of the rack to move down to the unloading end. Pallet flow rack is ideal for FIFO (first in – first out) inventory management.

Rollers let the loads move smoothly while self-energized speed controllers act as gentle brakes. As a load is removed, the loads behind it move forward automatically. SK3400 Pallet Flow rack systems allows users to increase product storage density by nearly 90% over selective rack.

Other applications of gravity flow rails include our keg flow and carton flow rack.

The modular design allows for easy expansion

SK3400 can fully integrate with other Steel King rack systems. Benefits include:

  • Full range of standard sizes and capacities
  • Installs easily by your personnel or ours
  • Economical to purchase and maintain
  • Connection plates welded to beam
  • Pawl – anti-backup device
  • Exit beam serves as pallet stop

A wide variety of flow beds are available

The flow system depth, height and width are limited only by the size of your facility and the capabilities of your material handling equipment.

Steel King rack is engineered to fit your pallet, product and workflow

Gravity flow storage solutions are provided by staff with the highest level of expertise and innovation in the industry.  Registered engineers design all Steel King products to conform to strict industry safety codes. In addition, rail types, rail pitch and brake spacing go through rigorous testing procedures.

Applications for the SK3400 Pallet Flow system would include raw materials receiving and storing, work-in-process, buffer storage, finished goods, order picking, cross docking, and other environments that require product density storage without increasing the warehouse footprint.

Depending on your system requirements, flow rack can be designed using either our SK2000® roll-form rack design or our SK3000® structural channel rack.
