DuraFlow adds new dimension to pallet racking

Pre-assembled wheel beds quickly convert to carton flowrack

Storage specialist Flowstore introduces DuraFlow, the new pre-assembled modular wheel system designed to simply and quickly convert most pallet rack structures into dynamic, versatile carton flow storage.  Strong multi-wheel roller track sections are supplied in standard widths of 305 or 405mm with universal beam hooks enabling easy positioning onto existing pallet rack cross beams. It only takes a few minutes to fit a whole shelf level, saving up to 90% of the usual installation time for live storage systems.

The densely packed, complete bed of wheels provides for ultimate flexibility as changing carton sizes can be accommodated without the need for track and guide re-configuration. DuraFlow allows you to achieve 90% space utilisation and efficient storage on a  first-in first-out principle.

Durable and virtually maintenance-free, these live storage bed assemblies feature wide self-lubricating, re-inforced heavy duty 48mm dia. moulded wheels on a sturdy 8mm solid steel spring-loaded axle, providing greater surface contact and easily accommodate heavy cases.

Typically a 2000mm deep x 2700mm wide pallet rack with one supporting beam on each aisle face can carry up to 1400Kg in a clear span, handling minimum package sizes from 80mm wide by 180mm long.

DuraFlow can be used for storage of  food and grocery goods, wines and spirits, freezer stores, stationery, books and other fast moving goods. The patented technology applied in the maintenance-free high strength wheels also make them suitable for use in wash down environments.

Apart from retro-fitting to pallet racks, DuraFlow can be supplied into most free-standing support rack systems to suit the application, and depths from 500mm up to 6 metres or more are available.

A comprehensive range of accessories enable projects to be custom-built to suit individual storage handling requirements., including tilted presentation shelves, lane indexers, etc.

DuraFlow flexibility proves to be a key feature for many order picking operations, as seasonal changes in pick volumes can be catered for as the carton live system can be quickly removed to revert the supporting structure back to pallet racking to meet changes in throughput requirements.
