Used Span Track

Span track style flow rack is added to existing pallet rack to create high-density storage. The span track is easily installed in the rack using a clip that fits on top of the beam. Product flows on inclined shelves and handles items stored in boxes and cartons. The pitch of the shelves is easily adjustable and fits most types of pallet rack including structural pallet rack. Ideal for warehouses that utilize the FIFO (first in, first out) method of inventory tracking, span track increases order picking by providing easy access to shelving and clear visibility of product.

Span tracking can reduce the cost for space and labor within a warehouse or distribution facility. While it’s considered to be a more efficient utilization of space it also can be installed with your existing pallet racking system and requires no maintenance. Span track style flow rack is ideal for items of the same box sizes and can help to save order picking time. Span tack can be used in single rack, double deep rack, and pushback racking systems. This track system will increase the overall visibility for your pickers and will increase productivity of your workers.

About Span Track

When using span track, the product is at a perfect picking height which reduces bending and reaching. The Drop-in Design configures to match existing structures. Spanning between beams allows for rear-loading of product. Capacity is not an issue as our wide range of product can hold up to 100 lbs. per foot.

Low-profile span track is placed between the beams and is ideal for products weighing less than 50 lbs. This type does not require shelves or supports. High profile span track sits on the rack beam with a retainer clip that locks to beam. Shelves can overhang the rack to extend the depth of the lane.

Span track is easy to adjust and is ideal for products weighing up to 50 lb. per foot. Standard sizes of used span track are 9," 12" and 18" from manufacturers including Rhino, Unarco, and Unex. Design and installation of used span track is based on the products being stored. Accessories include impact plates, slowdown strips, and guard rails.

Span track is a style of racking that uses a rear load design. Racks are set at a slight pitch and contain wheels to allow products to slide to the front of the racking automatically. When a stored item is removed from the front, the item directly behind it slides down to replace it. This keeps merchandise better organized and easier to pick as it reduces the amount of additional labor required when picking and stocking.

Used span track utilizes a FIFO dynamic style of inventory management. This is because product is loaded into the rear of the rack and then slides to the front, where it is then first to pick. Because only the front-most product can be picked, it is recommended that you store like items in a single row. This helps keep product organized and makes quick inventory spot checks very easy to accomplish.

It 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 because 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.
