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.

By adding decking and other accessories, pallet racking systems become even more versatile, allowing the storage of everything from the smallest carton to drums and wire reels.

Selective Rack may solve your warehouse problem if you:

  • Need easy access to all products at all times
  • Have a wide variety of products (SKUs)
  • Want flexibility in expanding or reconfiguring your storage
  • Require an economical solution

Available in a variety of heights, depths, bay lengths and capacities, Selective Pallet Rack is the definition of flexibility in warehouse and distribution center storage.

All DAK Solutions selective rack exceed the Rack Manufacturers Institute and ANSI standards. This includes automatic engagement devices that automatically seat and lock the beams into place. This reduces installation time and guards against accidental beam displacement.

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.

Because it retains most of the properties of selective rack, it’s possible to add decking and other accessories to a double deep system.

Double Deep Pallet Rack Systems may be the solution to your warehouse problem if you:

  • Need increased storage density
  • Don’t need 100% immediate access to all products
  • Don’t require frequent stock rotation
  • Want flexibility in expanding or reconfiguring your storage
  • Require an economical solution

Similar to selective rack, double deep is available in a variety of heights, depths, bay lengths and capacities and can be combined with rows of pallet rack allowing us to create a customized solution for your specific needs.

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.

Pallets are stored in lanes and rest on a carts-on-rails system. Working from a single aisle, pallets are stored by “pushing back” previously placed pallets with a new pallet on the next cart position. When the front pallet is retrieved, gravity causes the next pallet to move forward into a ready position. This “last-in, first-out” system (per lane) reduces picking time when a large number of picking faces are required. Push back pallet racking systems can store from 2 to 6 pallets deep.

Push-Back Rack may be the solution to your warehouse problem if you:

  • Have pallets of the same size
  • Want aisle access to each pick face
  • Have a large number of SKUs/li>
  • Want to avoid lift trucks entering the rack

Like Drive-in Rack, Push-Back Rack is a first-in, last-out system, so it’s not the right solution for those who need good stock rotation. To get high-density with a first-in, first-out system, ask us about a Pallet Flow Rack system.

Drive-In/Drive Through Rack

Drive-In/Drive-Through 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/Drive-Through rack is ideally suited to operations where a large quantity of relatively few products is stored.

Drive-In/Drive-Through Rack can be designed specifically for your needs in a multitude of heights and depths and with a wide variety of components and accessories. Drive-In Rack contains a common entry and exit point for each storage bay. Drive-Through Rack features access to a storage bay from either the front or back of a bay.

Drive-In/Drive-Through Rack may be the solutions for your warehouse problem if you:

  • Have uniformly sized pallets
  • Store seasonal items that move quickly or
  • Have a high volume of relatively few products (SKUs)
  • Want the highest density storage available

Because Drive-In/Drive-Through Rack is a first-in, last-out system, it’s not the right solution for those who need good stock rotation unless lot rotation is an option. To solve this problem with a first-in, first-out system, consider pallet flow rack for high density storage that addresses stock rotation.

All DAK Solutions rack exceed all Rack Manufacturers Institute and ANSI standards. However, because the lift trucks enter the rack structure, Drive-In/Drive-Through systems are subject to more damage. Well-trained lift truck drivers and frequent safety inspections are an important part of owning this high-density storage system.

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.

Pallet Flow Rack works like a conveyor system within the rack. Pallets are loaded at the charge or input end and flow down inclined rollers to the pick faces. Available up to twenty-plus pallet positions deep, a pallet flow system dramatically increases storage capacity.

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

  • Need a First-In, First-Out solution
  • Need to maximize throughput
  • Must have good stock rotation
  • Want to reduce product handling

Pallet Flow Rack are ideal for freezer warehouses, food distribution, high-volume customer goods, holding warehouses, and dispatch areas where pallets need to be removed quickly. Additionally, the system helps to keep employees at a safe distance from the forklifts that are replenishing the racks at the input end.

Have a similar need but you’re moving loose cartons or split cases? A carton flow rack system may be the answer. Check out our Carton Flow solution.

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.

In addition to being able to store awkwardly shaped loads of various lengths, Cantilever Rack can be adjusted quickly and easily for varying heights. Add the ability to select from single or double-sided storage and accessories (such as decking) and the result is truly versatile storage.

Cantilever Rack may be the solution to your warehouse problem if you:

  • Need to store long, bulky or awkwardly shaped loads
  • Require unobstructed access to your products
  • Want to store loads of differing sizes in the same system
  • Need high visibility of stored products

Available in light-, medium- and heavy-duty systems, cantilever is highly adaptable and can even include a roof option for outdoor storage. Because it is so customizable, a Cantilever Rack system must be carefully designed to meet your needs and protect your product and facility. Contact us to learn more.

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.

Engineered to provide safe, economical storage space of virtually any type of hand loaded material, basic steel shelving units are configured from posts, shelves and compression clips. These basic shelving systems can be enhanced with bins, boxes, dividers and drawers to maximize available space and create efficient storage solutions. Steel shelving provides storage solutions for everything from general office storage to integrated multi-tier warehouse applications.

Industrial steel shelving may be the solution to your warehouse problem if you:

  • Have hand loaded equipment or records
  • Need an economical solution
  • Want a choice of colors and styles
  • Need a solution that’s easily expanded
  • Want a flexible system for future changes

This isn’t your home-improvement superstore shelving. From light duty small parts storage, to shelving supported mezzanines and multi-level systems, industrial steel shelving can be designed around your particular small item storage needs.

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
