Basic Information

The through-shelf can be configured to configure the guide rail according to actual needs.

The through-shelf is almost twice as large as the normal pallet rack in the same space, because the lanes between the rows of shelves are eliminated, the shelves are merged together, and the same layer and the same column of goods are connected to each other. Limit the utilization of storage capacity.
Through-type shelves are widely used for storage of large quantities and small varieties of goods. These goods are packaged in a unified manner and have a single product, such as food, tobacco, cold storage and other warehouses.
Shelf composition
Column, diagonal bracing, cross bracing, back pull, top pull, top cross beam, spacer, double cow legs, hanging plate, single cow leg, foot protector, guide rail, etc.
Shelf features:

  1. On the support rail, the trays are stored in the depth direction, one next to the other, which makes
    Through shelf
    High density storage is possible.

  2.  The goods are accessed from the same side of the shelf, and are stored first, then taken, and then stored first. The balance weight and the forward-moving forklift can easily enter the middle of the shelf to access the goods without occupying multiple passages.

  3. This kind of shelf is suitable for storing large quantities and small variety of articles. The cow legs and the calf shelf of the through-type shelf (driving shelf) are all integrated stamping/rolling technology, which has strong carrying capacity and beautiful appearance. .

  4. Through-type shelves are fully inserted and assembled. The columns are assembled. The total depth of the shelves in the wall area is generally controlled within 5 tray depths. The total depth of the shelves in the middle area can be controlled in the total depth. Within 10 pallet depths to increase the efficiency and reliability of forklift access.
    The stability of the through-shelf system is weak in all types of shelves. For this reason, the shelf should not be too high, generally within 10m, and a pulling device is required in the system. The system has dense shelves and high space utilization. It is suitable for storing small quantities of large quantities of the same type of goods. The goods can be stored and removed from the same side, or can be taken from one side to the other side.


Through-shelf shelves are mostly used in the dairy industry, beverages and other food industries, and are also more common in cold storage.
Through-shelf: It is a kind of holistic shelf that is not separated by channel and continuous; the through-shelf adopts the tray access mode, which is suitable for storing single and large quantities of goods; compared with the pallet shelf, the warehouse utilization can reach About 80%, the warehouse utilization space rate can be increased by more than 30%, which is the storage shelf with the highest storage efficiency. On the support rails, the trays are stored in the depth direction, one next to the other. The investment cost is relatively low, suitable for large horizontal size, small variety, large quantity, commonly used to store a large number of the same type of goods, because of its high storage density, high utilization of ground space, often used in cold storage, food, tobacco, etc. A warehouse with a high storage cost.


The storage type shelf and the through-type shelf are all multi-door type and the tray unitized goods are connected in the depth direction one by one in the form of a shelf structure stored on the cantilever beam. The structure of the mold frame can share the working channel of the forklift and the storage space of the goods, which greatly improves the space and space utilization of the warehouse, but the goods in the same working channel cannot be first-in-first-out, suitable for large quantities and small varieties. Or the goods in the working channel flow to the same customer's goods storage, such as beverages, dairy products, tobacco, low-temperature frozen storage, standard-sized home appliances, chemicals, clothing and other industries. According to statistics, the entrance-type shelves can achieve the maximum storage density, the space effective utilization can be increased to up to 90%, and the site area utilization can reach more than 60%!
The advantages of through shelves are:

  1. The cargo storage channel is also a forklift storage and transportation channel, which is a form of shelf with high storage density.

  2.  It is usually used for the storage of goods with a small variety but large batch size and low requirements for the selection of goods.

  3.  With the lifting height of ordinary forklifts and the conventional scheme of three-storey cargo shelves, the effective storage capacity of the warehouse can be increased by more than 100%. In contrast, the investment cost is controlled and the benefits are significantly improved. From the global storage cost calculation, generally increasing the storage capacity benefit within three years can offset the investment cost.

  4. The goods follow the principle of advanced and backward output, and are suitable for most transportation machinery storage and transportation operations.
