Pennar’s Drive-in and Drive-thru systems are storage rack configurations that allow the forklift to be driven directly into a lane of stacked rows (or bay). Since this eliminates aisles, it helps to utilise up to 70% more warehouse space. Such systems are an ideal storage solution for inventory that has a longer shelf life.
Drive-in Racking Systems use a common entry and exit, while Drive-thru systems have entry points at either end of the bay. Because a Drive-in Racking System has only one entrance, it uses a last in, first out storage method. A Drive-thru Storage System, with two different entry points, can also use a first in, first out storage method. This system is advantageous for material with an expiration date or wherever shelf life is a concern.
Pennar offers these systems in a powder coated or galvanized finish.
