Flow Storage consists of two elements :
A static rack structure and dynamic flow rails. The flow rails are a track/roller system set at a decline along the length of the rack. Flow rails allow loads to move by gravity from the loading end to the unloading end. Each flow lane includes self – energized speed controllers (brakes) to gently control the speed of movement within the flow lanes. As a load is removed, the loads behind it move forward to the unloading position. The flow system depth, height and width are limited only by the size of your facility and the capabilities of your material handling equipment. Flow storage solutions are used in situations where storage density and inventory rotation are priorities. The Picking and replenishment aisles are separate.
Gravity flow conveying system along with transfer trolleys can be provided.
