Double Deep is similar to selective; but pallets are now stored two rows deep instead of one. This type of racking therefore requires specialised pallet handling equipment using ether a specialised forklift or a standard unit a with double deep handling attachment.
The most common forklift used for double-deep handing is a reach truck. One key disadvantage with reach trucks is that they require a counterbalance for loading and unloading the pallet onto trucks, which can double capital investment requirements for your pallet handling equipment.
Another Option is articulated forklifts which are able to work in double deep narrow aisles while still doing the job of a counter balance.
Perfect for handling Double-deep racking; this attachment allows any non-pantograph forklifts to be used to handle double deep pallet racking. Hydraulic pumps move the forks/tynes in or out; controlled by the forklift operator, allowing stock to be placed into the second row of a double deep racking system.
Pantographic Reach Trucks are dedicated trucks designed for double deep pallet stacking. They ensure faster operating times compared to hydraulic fork attachments
Double-Deep Racking is two pallet deep configuration pallet racking. This means a maximum of four rows can be placed back to back.
Double-Deep is a principle that works on the Last In First Out principle (LIFO). This type of racking reduces the amount of accessible stock keeping units (SKU’s) due to 50% of SKU’s being behind pallets when storage locations are at full capacity. Can increase pallet storage by as much as 10-15% depending on racking layout.
Double-deep is better suited to stock that has a medium to long term shelf life. Highly perishable goods aren’t recommended for this style of racking due to LIFO racking type.
