Rack Supported Storage Platforms built from Roll-Formed or Structural Rack can be either a full upper floor or a complete catwalk system on multi levels. Catwalk systems may be engineered from 2 up to 8 levels, or more. Rack supported shelving systems are ideal for part picking into totes or full carton picking into carts. Pickers move amongst the shelving aisles until the orders are completed and then orders are transferred to the main aisle conveyor, sending the cartons / totes to the shipping area. For added efficiency, high demand SKUs are usually placed on lower levels and Carton Flow lanes can be added to the perimeter.
