Carton Flow Storage Features
Carton flow storage is manufactured using inclined roller tracks. These offer optimal storage, and also the easy retrieval of cartons. In addition to helping product rotation, usually using a FIFO system. The cartons are usually loaded during replenishment, at the higher end of the lane. Rolling down gently using gravity towards the exit / pick face, in this case at the other end of the rack. The speed greatly increases, meaning effort required greatly reduces.
By design, Carton flow storage racks reduce manual handling, and also increase storage capacities. As a result they increase the quantity of immediately accessible goods and generally minimise the distance that order pickers need to travel to prepare each order.

Manual gravity track carton live storage racks dramatically reduce order processing times, showing real increases in productivity and reductions in waste
Made up of lanes of roller tracks to suit your products, using narrow mini tracks or full width rollers dependent on your product, all mounted in a robust steel frame. Optimum carton or tote storage can be achieved. The roller tracks are mounted on a slight incline towards the pick side and are loaded from the back. This type of storage ensures a build up of stock can be achieved reducing down time. Order preparation speeds are greatly enhanced. Carton flow storage are designed for use within warehouses for volume picking or within production assembly or packing workstations to ensure stock of parts, materials or kits are in the delivered in an ergonomic position ready for packing or assembly.
As UK manufacturers, Spaceguard’s an ideal partner for the design and integration of carton storage systems into new or existing installations. Including the design and building of more bespoke units. Suiting your specific requirements. In addition to storage systems, we manufacture a wide range of conveyors and workstation systems
