Flow Racking Systems
Flow racking systems from Avanta are dynamic systems for the picking and retrieval of pallets and individual boxes also known as cartons.
Pallet Live Racking
Working on a first-in, first-out basis, Avanta Pallet Live Racking provides high levels of storage density in a given area.
Pallets are loaded onto dedicated lanes of inclined gravity rollers which are set at a fixed gradient. When a load is taken from the picking face, the next pallet rolls into position, with replenishment stock loaded at the opposite (upper) end of the lane.
Speed controls and brakes within the roller tracks helps regulates the movement of the pallets.
Stock rotation is therefore automatic with the minimum of fork lift truck movements required to handle the flow of goods. Therefore this racking system is accessible using most types of fork truck.

Avanta UK offer a no obligation, free site survey and quotation service including CAD pallet racking layouts to optimise your pallet storage and pallet retrieval rates.
Carton Flow Racking
The angle of incline of the roller trays, the size and number of rollers within the trays, and the load capacity of the support frames, are tailored to the size and weight of the items stored.
You can utilise carton flow racking within your existing pallet racking to create a dynamic storage system. For your fast moving SKU's you can store and retrieve them on the in rack rollers and store the bulk pallets higher up in the pallet racking.

Operates on the same principle as pallet live storage, but is used for stock which needs to be hand-loaded and picked.
Live storage systems reduce order picking times and help minimise errors, as not only are items presented precisely at the picking face, but effective management of the throughput and stock levels of goods can also be easily maintained.
Carton live storage
For stock that needs to be hand picked and loaded carton live storage is an ideal solution.
Carton Live Storage includes inclined trays of roller tracks, set at levels in the storage bays, allow goods to roll under gravity down dedicated lanes within the trays, from the loading to the picking face.
Order picking times are reduced and errors minimised, as not only are items presented precisely at the picking face, but also effective management of the throughput and stock levels of goods can be easily maintained.
Carton Live Storage provides an excellent and space-efficient method of 'first-in, first-out' storage, particularly in areas handling and using fast moving product lines, for example assembly, packing and despatch.
- FIFO (first in,, first out) pick faces
- Shorter picking routes
- Lower cost per pick
- Faster picking access
- Used for small and medium sized items
The Avanta Carton Flow is ideal for retrofitting in existing selective racking with full width mounting brackets suitable for most support beams. This means companies can utilise the lower level(s) for fast moving individual lines whilst bulk pallet storage is above.
