Double Deep Pallet Racking Solutions

Double-deep Pallet Rack Storage systems are selective pallet racking solutions which are installed two racks deep and are operated in medium aisles with trucks that can reach double pallet depths.

A double-deep pallet racking storage solution offers businesses a space-efficient alternative to standard pallet racking by reducing the number of access aisles required while increasing storage density.

Double-deep Pallet Racking Storage systems results in Last-In First-Out (LIFO) access; 50% of goods are behind pallets when storage locations are at full capacity.

An efficient and up-to-date stock inventory system helps users of double-deep pallet racking to take advantage of their increased storage density.


  • Medium volumes (up to 3000 pallets)
  • SKUs in lots of two
  • Medium land cost

Double-Deep Pallet Racking Benefits.

Double-deep pallet racking solutions are a popular choice for cold stores, dry stores and the storage of multiple pallets of the same products. In deciding whether it’s the right storage solution for you, you’ll need to consider some of the following factors:



  • Medium to low storage system
  • Floor level is not critical (front loaded)

  • Loss of storage locations as only same SKU can be stored in front storage positions
  • Recommended storage loss allowance 15-20%
  • LIFO inventory management
  • Limited storage height (10m)
  • Special trucks required
  • Poor visibility of rear upper storage levels
  • Reduced through-put rates when compared with Reach Trucks
