The skatewheel rack is installed between the pallet rack beams which saves vertical space. Wheels (plastic or steel) are staggered to hold more weight than standard flow rack beds. Rack can be stand-alone units or placed into pallet rack to create a high-density flow rack storage system. It is designed to meet the customers' inventory needs. The dimensions of the system are determined by the product sizes and weights.

Design and installation of skatewheel flow rack from manufacturers such as Kenenco, Unex, and Hytrol is available nationwide. Options include impact trays and speed controllers.

Skate-wheel flow rack is a style of racking that uses a rear load design, with shelves that sit at a slight pitch. Each shelf contains equally spaced skate wheels; there are no lanes so products of any size can be stored. When a stored item is removed from the front, the item directly behind it slides down to replace it. This keeps merchandise organized and easier to pick as it reduces the amount of additional labor required when picking and stocking.

This style of flow rack is considered dynamic because it is stocked from the back and picked from the front, which allows for no interference when both functions are being performed simultaneously. It also minimizes travel when performing either function as workers who are loading only work on one side of the rack, and workers picking items work on the other. This is compared to a static system where picking and stocking occur on both sides, which requires additional traffic and labor. For this reason, warehouses and distribution facilities will likely see an increase in throughput and workers productivity.
