Warehouse Storage
and Optimization

Its pertinent that warehouses think in terms of area, volume and the use of vertical space to maximize their storge capabilities. DAK Solutions can help your warehouse optimize its volume with warehouse storage equipment that lets no space go to waste. Selective warehouse pallet racking grants easy access to pallet loads of any size with no disturbance. Double-deep racks turn aisles into more storage space, while uniquely sized material uses a cantilever rack to store goods that don’t fit neatly into boxes. DAK even goes beyond warehouse storage equipment in optimizing available “air” space using mezzanines for additional floor space, truly maximizing your warehouse’s cubic footage. To view the full list of DAK Solutions’ warehouse storage and facility optimization solutions, see details below.

Our Equipment

Selective Pallet Rack

The building block of material handling, Selective Pallet Rack provides efficient use of space and immediate access to every load or pallet stored. Because it provides the best ratio of storage capacity to product selectivity, Selective Pallet Rack is an effective solution for almost every storage need, from basic pallet storage to the most complex order picking operations.

Double-Deep Pallet Rack

By placing a second row of Selective Pallet Rack immediately behind the first row, we create Double Deep Pallet Rack. This eliminates the need for an aisle between two storage racks and saves up to 65% of the available floor space. Double deep systems require deep reach lift trucks.

Push-Back Rack

Push-Back Rack is a high density storage solution. Offering a similar storage density to drive-in rack, push-back pallet rack systems offer better selectivity and accessibility to a wider ranger of SKUs.

Drive-In/Rack

Drive-In Pallet Rack is a unique storage solution. Loads are densely stored in lanes several positions deep, and lift equipment actually enters the rack structure in order to store and retrieve them. Drive-In rack is ideally suited to operations where a large quantity of relatively few products is stored.

Pallet Flow Rack

A first-in, first-out, high-density storage system, Pallet Flow Rack is an ideal solution if you need to increase the number of pallet positions and keep the ability to rotate stock.

Carton Flow Rack

Carton Flow Rack is a first-in, first-out order picking solution that’s powered by gravity. A carton flow system is designed for loose cartons or split cases. When compared to static pick systems, this solution can save up to 75% in labor costs.

Because the stocking and picking aisles are separate, carton flow adds efficiency by eliminating conflict between stockers and pickers. The high visibility of the pick faces prevents out-of-stock situations and the first-in, first-out rotation assures food distributors of product freshness. We can show you how to use a carton flow system with your industrial storage racks.

Carton Flow may be the solution to your warehouse problem if you:

  • Need to quickly pick and ship individual cartons
  • Have high SKU traffic
  • Want rapid order picking
  • Need to reduce labor costs

Almost always part of a pick module system, carton flow can add value, save time, and reduce costs even when implemented in a single bay. This storage system is ideal for a wide range of sectors from warehouses storing mass consumer goods to pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, computer components and more.

Cantilever Rack

Cantilever Rack are a storage solution that has load-bearing arms anchored by a large column at one end or in the center. Unlike most rack systems, this leaves the picking face unimpeded by structural elements. Cantilever Rack is ideal for long or bulky items such as furniture, appliances, flooring, lumber, tubing, textiles, and piping.

Pallet Shuttle

DAK’s toughest challenges are combining high productivity and dense storage. Pallet Shuttle systems (and their many nicknames) excel when it comes to high density storage and automated rearranging and retrieval of pallets.

Although the initial investment can be high, companies can benefit from an automatic Pallet Shuttle system when:

  • High throughput is required.
  • High product rotation exists
  • Limited space is available and vertical space can be utilized
  • You have a high number of stock counts and varying consumption SKUs
  • Large number of pallets per SKU

A Pallet Shuttle system is a 24/7, 365-day operator and can in many cases eliminate traditional labor costs and costs associated with labor including, training, lift trucks and maintenance which can drive a relatively short term ROI.

Shelving

In many cases, a pallet rack system is too much solution for the storage problem at hand. In those situations, industrial steel shelving provides the answer.

Work Platform (Mezzanine)

Work Platforms help you transform unused overhead space into valuable floor space. Designed to fit around your existing columns and machinery, a Work Platform can help you obtain the greatest amount of usable floor space. Openings and stairways can be located wherever they are needed.

Easy to install, move and expand, Work Platforms install in days rather than weeks or months and reduce the disruption of your busines. Since work platforms function in conjunction with your warehouse racking system, you could end up gaining a great deal of usable space without moving your business. Work Platforms can be free-standing, building-supported, rack-supported or shelving-supported and offer solutions for everything from records storage to shelving systems or pre-engineered offices.

A work platform may solve your warehouse problem if you:

  • Want additional space
  • Don’t want to move to a larger facility
  • Need to add an in-plant office without losing valuable floor space
  • Want storage for slow moving items or archived files
  • Need a conveyor support platform

Adding work platform levels can be a fast and easy way to double your space and can cost up to 80% less than a building addition. Along with being less expensive initially, work platforms can also qualify for accelerated depreciation similar to capital equipment, saving you money at both ends of the expansion.

Our Work Platforms, and all components, are precisely engineered to meet or exceed the standards of major national building and design codes for industrial applications, including AISC, UBC, BOCA, SBCCI, and ACI. The systems can also be designed to meet or exceed the requirements of your local municipal building codes.

Pre-engineered Modular Office

There are many good reasons for having a separate enclosed space within a warehouse or distribution center and a Pre-Engineered Modular Office can make the decision simple. Whether you’re looking for a foreman’s office, a quality assurance and testing area or a shipping or receiving office, you’ll want that space where the action is.

Unfortunately, because it’s in the middle of the action, making the time and space for construction can often be difficult, particularly for stick-built enclosures. A Pre-Engineered Modular Office can go up in a quarter of the time of permanent construction. In fact, modular construction can often be completed in a weekend. An additional advantage is that they are quickly and easily moved when your needs change.

A pre-engineered office may solve your warehouse problem if you would like any of the following:

  • A staff lunch and break room
  • Quality Assurance or Testing space
  • Management or staff offices
  • A clean room
  • A dedicated area for parts distribution

Perhaps the greatest benefit in choosing pre-engineered offices is the tax savings involved when compared to stick-built. Because modular products are considered “tangible property” instead of “real property” like conventional construction, they are depreciated over 7 years instead of 39. This results in a tax savings of over $5,000 for cost-comparable buildings.

Wire Deck

'Wire deck is a product that works with pallet racks to provide support, safety, quality, strength and reliability to warehouse racks. Wire decks are easy to install (they simply drop into place) and allow high visibility through all levels of pallet racking.

In addition to providing protection from falling inventory, wire decking can improve air circulation and prevent dust build-up. Wire decks can also help increase overhead sprinkler effectiveness, and many local fire codes require them instead of particle board or plywood. DAK can source a wide range of options, configurations and applications to serve your pallet racking needs. We stock much of our wire decking, which results in shorter lead times.

Wire Deck may solve your warehouse problem if you would like:

  • Flexibility to store cartons, drums, and multiple pallet sizes
  • A solution that is easy to install
  • To improve fire safety in your facility
  • Extra protection for employees and products
  • To improve inventory visibility and brightens your facility
  • A self-cleaning / maintenance free solution

Wire deck comes in many styles:

  • Inside waterfall
  • Flat flush
  • Inverted flare
  • Inverted U-channel
  • Standard U-channel
  • Flared channel
  • Galvanized or powder-coated
